Workers' Comp Hearings Now Remote
Regarding Workers' Compensation hearings, please be advised that effective immediately all Workers' Compensation hearings are proceeding as scheduled, and claimants are directed to appear by Virtual Hearings.
NYS Workers’ Compensation Board Statement: "To preserve public and workforce safety, effective immediately, the Board will conduct Workers’ Compensation hearings remotely, using the Board’s Virtual Hearings service. Virtual Hearings allow injured workers, attorneys/representatives, witnesses and other participants to attend workers’ compensation hearings remotely using a computer or mobile device. For the very small number of hearings that are not held using Virtual Hearings (discrimination cases under WCL § 120), the Board will contact the participants regarding further proceedings.
Injured workers can also choose to appear by phone by calling (844) 337-6301. If you are an unrepresented injured worker and are unable to participate in your hearing, it will be rescheduled. (Injured workers who plan to call should notify the board as soon as possible on the day of their hearing to ensure the judge has their contact information prior to the hearing.)
Following a mandate by Governor Cuomo, all Board locations are temporarily closed to the public starting Tuesday, March 17, however, the Board will strive to continue operations remotely."

Terry Katz, Esq.
Terry Katz, Esq., the founding Member of the firm, handles all aspects of Workers’ Compensation and Social Security Disability cases.
Hiring Terry Katz and associates to represent my interests in my Workers Compensation and Social Security Disability case proved to be a smart decision that yielded an extremely successful outcome.
Through the lengthy and intricate process I came to realize just how valuable having a team of highly skilled representation was, and that is just how to describe the law firm of Terry Katz and Associates “Highly skilled legal representation”. I’d like to thank the entire team who worked on both my cases all of whom were always professional, knowledgeable and extremely caring. Throughout my entire case all of my calls and emails were always returned in a timely manner. My questions always answered competently and professionally. I always understood the process and felt a confidence in the process that I would not have had if not for hiring Terry Katz and Associates.
Mostly I’d like to thank Ms. Langdale who worked tirelessly on both my workers compensation case and my social security disability case. Her representation and legal prowess in the court room was nothing short of impressive to witness. I will never forget how confidently represented and protected I felt during her opening remarks at my social security disability hearing.
During these difficult times I was truly grateful to have Ms. Langdale working so diligently and expertly for my interests.
