LOIS Obtains Disallowance on Lack of Notice Case

LOIS attorney Alexa Cintron was successful in arguing for a disallowance of a 2022 claim, where the claimant alleged he sustained injuries to his back, left hip and tailbone. However, the Claimant failed to provide proper notice to his employer pursuant to Section 18 of the Worker’s Compensation Law. Attorney Cintron was able to obtain favorable testimony from both the Claimant and employer witness, which led the Law Judge to disallow the claim, stating that the Claimant’s inconsistent testimony did not satisfy the element of notice.

New York Workers’ Compensation Defense at Lois Law Firm

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.
