Skilled Legal Representation for Out of State and National Employers


Most states have some form of workers’ compensation system in place. And for the most part, these systems have broad similarities. But there are important differences , and the more complex the issue, the more pronounced these differences become. Foreign companies operating in West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky need experienced local counsel to advise them on the particularities of each state’s workers’ compensation laws. Likewise, West Virginia companies need trusted attorneys to help them coordinate with local counsel in other states during workers’ compensation litigation. With our comprehensive workers’ compensation practice and national reputation, Pullin, Fowler, Flanagan, Brown & Poe  attorneys can assist businesses of all types in dealing with interstate workers’ compensation issues.


When a foreign company has employees in another state, it must adhere to the workers’ compensation laws of that state. Workers’ compensation systems — including coverage requirements, claim processing rules and litigation procedures — vary from state to state, so understanding your legal obligations is crucial to avoiding penalties and liability exposure. Pullin, Fowler, Flanagan, Brown & Poe provides compliance advice to national employers with facilities and workforces in Ohio, West Virginia and Kentucky so they fully understand their obligations under the applicable state laws. Moreover, our attorneys can litigate workers’ compensation cases on behalf of out-of-state employers while coordinating with them and their regular counsel.


When expanding your operation to another state, it is important to have local lawyers who know your business and can apprise you of any new obligations you may be incurring. With workers’ compensation issues involving noncompliance, which can expose you to both criminal and civil liability, this is especially true.

Our attorneys advise businesses in West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky regarding their workers’ compensation obligations in other jurisdictions where they are considering hiring a workforce. This can prevent the delays and possible liability that noncompliance can bring. Moreover, if workers’ compensation litigation becomes necessary in a foreign jurisdiction, our lawyers use their familiarity with your company to effectively coordinate with local counsel and ensure that they have the information they need to properly litigate the claim.
