Happy New Year from your New York Disability LawyersTuesday, January 3, 2006
This past year has been a great experience for all of us at the Disabled Worker Law Blog. Hopefully, we have shared some useful information for the disability community regarding New York workers’ compensation claims, Social Security Disability claims, and Long Term Disability claims. In addition to sharing helpful information, we have taken strong political positions to protect the rights and benefits of disabled workers, whether it be the Bush Social Security Privatization plan,the Pataki workers’ compensation reform plan, or the UnumProvident long term disability settlements. Your continued readership and comments have been both encouraging and enlightening. We look forward to the continuation of our mutual conversation in the New Year.
Along the way, we have encountered many friends and fellow bloggers, such as the the always insightful New York Civil Law Blog and the simply outstanding Workers’ Comp Insider. Their excellence keeps us striving to do better. Of course, none of this would have been possible without the support and encouragement of Kevin O’Keefe at Lexblog who is the preeminent authority on law firm blogs in the US. Thanks, Kev!
Finally, we would like to personally thank all our loyal readers. Since the Disabled Worker Law Blog was launched in March 2005, our readership statistics have shown steady growth, while maintaining a loyal group of regulars. We frequently receive inquiries from disability advocacy groups, disability support groups, unions, physician practices and the press, in addition to disabled individuals and their families. On behalf of all the attorneys at Turley, Redmond & Rosasco, we wish you all a happy and healthy New Year. We’ll see you in the blogosphere!
