Workers’ Compensation Law: Defending Maine Employers and Insurers
Maine’s workers’ compensation laws are revised on an ongoing basis; thus, whether and to what extent benefits are payable are issues that are difficult to determine without extensive experience this ever-changing and highly complex area of employment law.
Alison Denham, Deb Buccina, and Elizabeth Ernst are three of the most experienced workers compensation lawyers in Maine. They have litigated virtually every facet of this complex statutory scheme and are intimately familiar with the nuances that influence case outcomes.
In addition, they have acquired comprehensive knowledge of the medical-legal issues particular to occupational medicine, and are frequently asked to speak on these topics before fellow lawyers, risk managers, and business owners.
Working closely with Maine private and municipal employers, both self-insured and those under standard workers’ compensation coverage, they provide their clients with superior yet cost-effective services including:
- Guidance on overall strategy for controlling exposure
- Case evaluations
- Representation before the Workers’ Compensation Board, Appellate Division and the Maine Supreme Court
- Counsel on management of claims and litigation
- Ongoing, proactive education
