New York is replacing in-person hearings with “Virtual Hearings” held via web conference. LOIS Attorneys Tashia Rasul, Esq., Declan Gourley, Esq., and Christian Sison, Esq., discuss the impact of virtual hearings in New York workers’ compensation claims, particularly in regards to what this means for claims handling, claim defense, and costs.
Attorneys Joseph Melchionne and Greg Lois discuss defenses commonly raised in New York workers’ compensation cases. They discuss the defense of notice, statute of limitations, intoxication, and recreational loss among others.
Attorneys Karen Vincent and Greg Lois of the Lois Law Firm explain how New Jersey’s Second Injury Fund works, when relief can be obtained from the Fund, and strategies for maximizing the contribution of the Second Injury Fund. The presentation includes a practical step-by-step illustration of the impact of Fund contribution in a total disability case with pre-existing conditions.
This video from our March 19, 2018 webinar presentation is designed to answer the following questions:
“What are the most common causes for penalties in New York?” and
“How do we avoid case-level penalties?” and
“What can we do to mitigate or resolve a penalty issue?”
Presenter Greg Lois has years of experience representing employers and carriers before the Board. At the end of the presentation, the attendees will have a basic understanding of the common penalties, tactics to avoid penalties, and the potential to mitigate or resolve some penalties.
