Third Fridays Podcast: Episode 18

Impact of the Taher v. Yiota Taxis Decision

After last month’s episode discussed a favorable Board Panel Decision to employers and carriers, life at the Workers’ Compensation Board resumes normal claimant-friendly activity with the recent Third Department decision in Taher v. Yiota Taxi. Andrea Abudayeh joins Christian Sison to discuss how the Taher decision impacts permanency cases involving established schedule and non-schedule sites. How can we best defend cases in a post-Taher world, and how are Judges applying this case going forward?

What is “Third Fridays”?

Third Fridays Podcast is a live, 30-minute legal talk show from Lois Law Firm featuring moderator Christian Sison. It is the original forum in which real attorneys discuss workers’ compensation issues, share their opinions and engage in colorful conversations.

The goal of the show is to showcase the diverse perspectives of the attorneys handling workers’ compensation cases. Attorneys discuss case law trends, practical litigation strategies, and hot topics.

Learn More About New York Workers’ Compensation Defense at LOIS

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.
