Albany Attorneys Representing Business Owners

Powerful Workers' Compensation Representation Throughout New York

Workers' compensation costs in New York can severely impact a business' bottom line. Both the cost of insurance policies and payments made on workers' compensation claims can put financial restraints on a business and prevent it from having the capital it needs to operate effectively.

At Stockton, Barker & Mead, LLP, we understand the dilemma that business owners face when dealing with workers' compensation issues. We work closely with businesses of all sizes to help them contain costs while remaining in full compliance with the law and the regulations imposed by the Workers' Compensation Board. Since 1994 we have served as trusted advisors and effective advocates to businesses in Albany and throughout upstate New York. We never take a one size fits all approach to the law — we match clients with the attorney whose skills best fit their needs, and we offer custom tailored legal advice in every case.

Full-Service Workers' Compensation Defense

We offer comprehensive workers' compensation defense services to both small business and large companies. This includes not only courtroom representation and responding to Workers' Compensation Board Notices, but also counseling services that can help a business before claims ever arise. In this counseling function, we explain the legal concepts tied to the bills our clients receive from their insurance companies or other entities. We then let our clients know how they can affect those costs by doing things such as changing workplace practices or changing their policy.

Beyond counseling, we frequently assist clients in situations such as:

  • Defending against workers' comp claims
  • Preventing workers' compensation fraud
  • Conducting in-depth investigations of existing claims
  • Interacting with the Workers' Compensation Board on our clients' behalf

Although it is sometimes too late to prevent an accident, it is never too late to prevent the next one or to implement better documentation practices. We help business understand what they can do to improve their practices and keep costs contained in the future.
