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.
I would HIGHLY recommend Terry Katz Law Firm to anyone who is looking for a legal representation.
After an injury at work, Jesse was recommended to me by a coworker. Having little to no experience working with lawyers, I was pretty impressed with the degree of professionalism Jesse and his team showed. Jesse and Donna were very knowledgeable professionals who made themselves available to answer all my questions and concerns, even while handling other cases. They were not only professional but also compassionate.
I was extremely satisfied with the award that I received which didn’t come close to what I expected. This firm definitely gets results!! I would HIGHLY recommend Jesse and his firm to all my friends and family.
