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.

  • Can my employer fire me if I file a workers’ compensation claim?
    Your employer is not allowed to retaliate against you in any way when you file a workers’ compensation claim. This means they may not fire you, let you go, demote you, pass you over for a promotion, refuse to give you a raise, or otherwise take negative action against you because you have sought workers’ compensation benefits. If you believe your employer has unjustly retaliated against you, reach out to our team at Schotter Millican. In addition to appealing denied workers’ compensation claims, we handle complex employer retaliation cases related to workers’ compensation and wrongful termination.
  • Can I take video of my independent medical evaluation?
    Yes! Not only are you allowed to video your independent medical evaluation (IME), but you absolutely should. At Schotter Millican, we have a full team of videographers on staff. Where other law firms may recommend that you hire a videographer or, at best, refer a videographer you can use, we send a videographer to your IME completely free of charge. This helps keep doctors honest and works to ensure that you receive the best possible medical care.
  • How much does a workers’ compensation attorney cost?
    At Schotter Millican, our legal fees are dependent upon us recovering compensation for you. There are no upfront or out-of-pocket expenses when you hire our team and, in the unlikely event we do not recover a settlement or verdict on your behalf, you do not pay.
