LOIS Attorney Wins on Attachment to the Labor Market Defense

LOIS obtains a no attachment to the labor market finding after arguing the claimant failed to conduct a timely, diligent, or persistent work search. The claimant was classified as having a permanent partial disability but was deemed unattached to the labor market and was directed to produce evidence of a timely, diligent, and persistent work search. However, the evidence produced showed the claimant had only applied to 16 positions. LOIS attorney Alexa Cintron was able to obtain favorable testimony from the Claimant, wherein he conceded to not having experience for many of the positions applied for and that he did not engage in any vocational rehabilitation services. Based on the testimony, the Law Judge did not feel the claimant conducted a timely, diligent, or persistent work search, finding the claimant ineligible to receive wage loss benefits.

We represent insurance carriers, self-insured employers, third party claim administrators, and employers before the New York State Workers' Compensation Board. We handle cases from cradle-to-grave. We want to be by your side, moving cases aggressively to closure from the start of litigation all the way through to settlement.

We only assign one attorney and one paralegal to each case. This means that your team members always have one contact to go to for any questions. We do not have 'hearing attorney' or a 'negotiation attorney' or 'appeal department' or anything else! All of our attorneys handle all of those roles – meaning cases are not 'passed around' as they move through the litigation process. Your risk professional or adjuster always knows who is assigned – because the attorney does not change.
