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.
My experience with the firm of Terry Katz and Associates proved to be a very rewarding experience. My specific case was for the receipt of SSI benefits. After having been denied my initial request for SS benefits, I contacted the firm of Terry Katz and Associates in the hopes of reinforcing my appeal.
The associate with whom I worked, Ms. Langdale, was truly exceptional, providing me not only with invaluable guidance, but personable and compassionate care along the way. She is a wonderful person. In the end, my appeal was successful and I am now receiving benefits.
I am so grateful to the Katz firm, for the exceptional assistance I received, not only from Ms. Langdale, but from all the associates involved at the firm. I highly recommend retaining their services for anyone seeking to strengthen their SSI case. Thank you again, Terry Katz & Associates!
