Workers' Compensation defense and employment-related legal matters are the cornerstones of our New England practice. We have amassed decades of both technical and practical knowledge, ensuring the best possible result for employers. Our multi-faceted approach is what sets us apart:
Institutional Knowledge, Expert Relationships
We have extensive experience navigating cases involving virtually every injury possible, from the clear-cut and short-term to the open-ended and complex. We've devoted literally thousands of hours to studying medical records, deposing expert witnesses, and developing a working knowledge of the myriad health issues surrounding Workers' Compensation claims. We've built long-standing relationships with top medical and industrial specialists in New England, so that when an issue requires expert witness testimony, we immediately access the most appropriate individual for an employer's case.
Litigation and Mediation
We are in court representing clients every day. From discovery motions to trial, we are aggressive in our pursuit of solutions for employers at each and every stage of the process. Our attorneys' long-standing presence in the community makes that pursuit more efficient, as we understand the expectations and habits of opposing counsel and the state court systems. And, when mediation and settlement possibilities evaporate, we relish taking cases to trial. At heart, we are litigators with a passion for our clients' victories.
Reachable and Responsive
Every client is our most important client. We hold ourselves to that belief by ensuring that, at every stage of the process, clients understand exactly where their matters stand and what next steps we recommend. We respond to client inquiries within twenty-four hours, and usually sooner.
IGC often partners with employers and claims staff to educate, train, and consult with new managers and staff regarding best practices in mitigation of damages, awareness of claims-related deadlines, and documentation strategies. Such training provides a response template, which enables employers to respond thoroughly and appropriately to all potential employee claims.
