Casualty Defense & Workers’ Compensation



Insurance carriers regularly retain our firm to defend individuals and businesses they insure against personal injury and property damage lawsuits involving motor vehicle accidents, slips and falls, and other claims involving allegations of negligence.

If you own or operate a business in Virginia, you are probably subject to the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Act.  Even businesses with less than three employees may be responsible for the injuries of not just their own employees, but potentially the workers of any subcontractor.

This type of liability often comes as a surprise for general and mechanical contractors.   Poole Brooke Plumlee PC attorneys aggressively represent employers before the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission, and have successfully prosecuted cases to the Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court of Virginia.

Poole Brooke Plumlee PC is actively expanding its practice to include the Longshore and Harbor Workers and Federal Workers’ Compensation Acts.  We are proud to represent the Commonwealth of Virginia as local trial counsel for the Uninsured Employer’s Fund.
