As of June 10, 2020, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo began “Phase Two Reopening’s” on Long Island. Phase Two applied to all “Office Based Employers” and we reopened on July 13, 2020. Since reopening, we have been assisting our current clients, new clients and appearing virtually before Administrative Law Judges at both the NYS Workers’ Compensation Board and the Social Security Administration. If you have received a hearing notification, please call the office immediately to discuss any issues pertaining to your upcoming hearing. Neither our office nor claimants are permitted to personally appear for your hearing, but virtual accommodations are available.
In addition to appearing at hearings, our staff of attorneys and paralegals continue to diligently work on your case(s) and have frequent contact with both insurance carriers and representatives of the Social Security Administration. We are available to address any legal concerns you may have regarding a new or existing case. Feel free to call or email our office or staff and your inquiries will be promptly answered.
Further, if you feel as though you have contracted the Covid-19 Virus because of an exposure in the workplace or as a result of work activity, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. These exposures most typically involve EMT’s, healthcare professionals, home health aides, maintenance workers, utility workers, telecommunication workers and construction workers but may include all types of employment in New York State.
Last, due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, many New Yorkers are working from home. For so many of us, home has become the new workplace. If you suffer an injury while working remotely from home, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.
Please call the office at (855) 367-0135 to address any legal concerns you may currently be experiencing. Should you have a new legal matter, feel free to call one of the partners directly for an immediate, free telephonic consultation.
