About Schotter Millican, LLP

New York City’s Trusted Workers’ Compensation Law Firm

Founded in 2020 during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Schotter Millican comprises a team of leading New York City workers’ compensation attorneys. Our attorneys have been serving the local communities for years and are known for their longstanding commitment to injured New York workers, as well as their established connections with local labor and transport unions. Our firm is recognized for our dedication to our clients and our willingness to take on even the toughest and most complex of cases.

Our staff consists of renowned industry experts, including licensed Workers’ Compensation Board representatives, as well as an entire team of videographers who provide complimentary video services to all clients undergoing independent medical examinations (IMEs). This is incredibly important, as many insurance companies use IMEs to dispute employees’ claims or even deny benefits.

At Schotter Millican, we take our time to review each new case, whether it is brand new or has been open for years, in order to make sure we catch every opportunity to maximize your monetary recovery and get you the medical treatment you need with minimal hassle. We are different—and on purpose. We treat our clients like family, which is why we grow our business primarily by word-of-mouth referrals.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q:How does workers’ comp work?

    A:In New York, all for-profit businesses and most not-for-profit employers a required to carry workers’ compensation insurance for all of their employees. If you have been permanently disabled, this insurance will cover all health care and travel expenses related to your injury as well as provide cash benefits of two-thirds of your average weekly wage, as long as it is under a certain amount. There is a slightly different calculation for partial disability. You do not have to pay for the insurance, and your attorney is compensated from the awards.

  • Q:How much can I get from workers' comp?

    A:What you receive depends on how much your weekly wage was. You will receive a certain amount of your prior wage, but only up to a maximum. The state of New York dictates different maximums for different periods of time.

  • Q:Is workers' comp taxable?

    A:Generally, workers' compensation benefits are not taxable, but your benefits could influence your social security benefits and taxes on those benefits if you are receiving those as well.
