Workers' Compensation

As a part of Verrill's comprehensive approach to representation of employers, we maintain an active workers' compensation defense practice. From defending claims to guidance on proactive policies to reduce the likelihood of claims, our team is a trusted resource for employers of all sizes and across industries.

The lawyers leading our Worker's Compensation group each have more than 24 years of experience representing employers and insurers before hearing officers of the Maine Workers' Compensation Board throughout the State, before the Workers' Compensation Board of Directors and before the Maine Supreme Judicial Court. We have counseled clients facing fines and other penalties before the Board, and actively educate clients on all aspects of the law, including the intersections of workers' compensation law and other pertinent workplace rules, regulations, and laws.
