Ms. Parzymieso focuses her practice on workers’ compensation. She defends insurance carriers and self-insured employers in a wide range of workers’ compensation claims, including those involving slips and falls, motor vehicle accidents, occupational disabilities, repetitive stress claims, psychiatric injuries, and fraud claims under the Workers’ Compensation Law. Her experience includes cases arising from numerous industries, including retail; construction; health care, including long-term care facilities and home health providers; and hospitality, including hotels, restaurants, and casinos.  She has taken claims from the initial investigation stage through trial; written briefs and appeals on behalf of the insurers; and has also negotiated and drafted section 32 settlement agreements bringing final resolutions to cases.
