Insurance Carriers and Employers

Lemire & Higgins provides clients with decades of experience defending Workers’ Compensation cases throughout Upstate New York.

Our firm is uniquely qualified to provide superior legal services by having an experienced attorney responsible for all phases of legal representation. This is achieved through early attorney intervention; assistance with formulation of defense strategy and claims handling; and familiarity of counsel with the client and the claim as the case progresses through the system. Unlike other firms who often assign different counsel to handle a claim at each hearing, we offer continuity of defense counsel on the file throughout the adjudicatory and appeal process.

Lemire & Higgins’ Workers’ Compensation practice is led by Christopher R. Lemire, Esq. who has focused his practice on Workers’ Compensation matters. For the past two decades, Mr. Lemire has defended claims for large insurance companies (C.N.A., Travelers), self-insured employers (Exxon Mobil, Hannaford), uninsured employers, as well as self-insured municipalities (Warren County, Rensselaer County). The Firm’s Workers’ Compensation attorneys have experience in all phases of the Workers’ Compensation process – developing and implementing claim defense strategy; handling claims throughout the hearing and trial process; negotiating and drafting Section 32 Settlements; drafting and arguing administrative appeals and perfecting appeals to the Appellate Division, Third Department and the New York State Court of Appeals.

Our attorneys regularly represent clients at hearings in Albany (Menands), Hudson, Saranac Lake, Plattsburgh, Poughkeepsie, Oneonta and Newburgh (New Windsor).
