Workers' Compensation Defense

Ryan Roach & Ryan, LLP, located in Kingston, NY, has handled all aspects of workers' compensation claims for over 50 years. Every day our attorneys appear at Workers' Compensation Board (WCB) hearings at the following hearing points:

  • Albany (Menands)
  • Newburgh
  • Poughkeepsie
  • Hudson
  • White Plains

In addition to hearings before the WCB, we routinely take cases to the state court (New York State Supreme Court Appellate Division, 3rd Department) if we feel that our client's legal rights have not been properly adjudicated or protected by the Board.

Efficient representation now requires first class e-communication with our many "paperless" clients, and Ryan Roach & Ryan, LLP, is up to the task. We can easily publish critical documents to a secure PDF format for emailing or e-faxing. We employ sophisticated conflicts checking and calendaring software. And we have a dedicated workers' compensation email address: [email protected].

Our daily working relationship with all WCB law judges in the Hudson Valley region gives us familiarity with the local customs and procedures applied in all local cases. Added to that, our extensive state court appellate work gives us invaluable understanding of the statutes and cases, and the trends in the law that affect everyday claims. Our lawyers are well-versed in the WCB's controversial new "rocket docket" regulations. And our technologies are designed for efficiency. Finally, since we represent insurance carriers, TPAs, employers, uninsured employers and claimants, we bring credibility to every dispute, having previously seen and litigated disputes from every conceivable vantage point.
