If you need legal assistance with a workers' compensation claim or appeal after receiving work-related injuries, the law firm of Carlisle Carrothers & Clough can help. Our law firm is one of the oldest workers' compensation law firms in northern New York — and our attorneys have decades of experience representing workers' compensation claimants before the New York Workers' Compensation Board.
Meet With an Attorney to Discuss Your Workers' Compensation Case
At Carlisle Carrothers & Clough, you get access to your attorney throughout the entire claims process. We do not pass your case off to a legal assistant to manage — so that you meet your lawyer for the first time at the workers' compensation hearing. Instead, you will work with an experienced workers' compensation attorney throughout your case.
Our lawyers have decades of experience handling workers' compensation claims and appeals. Attorney Preston C. Carlisle, who has more than 45 years' legal experience with workers' compensation, leads the law firm. Our two other partners, Alice J. Carrothers and Molly E. Clough, have both handled workers' compensation cases for more than a decade — Ms. Carrothers for more than 15 years, and Ms. Clough for more than 10 years.
You may be able to receive workers' compensation benefits and Social Security disability benefits at the same time — depending on the severity of your injury. Our attorneys have advanced experience with Social Security disability claims as well as with workers' compensation cases. We will make sure you get access to every available source of financial compensation.
No Upfront Costs or Attorney's Fees
In New York, the way that attorneys are paid for workers' compensation cases is set by law. We work on a contingency fee basis on workers' comp cases — which means that we accept no upfront costs or attorney's fees from our workers' comp clients. The contingent fee in workers' compensation cases are set by the presiding workers' compensation law judge in the case.
