Your Long Island Workers Compensation – Hearings & Appeals
If you have a Long Island Workers Compensation dispute, it’s important to know how New York law works in these situations. The New York Workers’ Compensation Board will usually hold a hearing concerning your dispute.
During a hearing, a Workers’ Compensation Law judge listens to testimony and reviews evidence from both parties in the dispute. After hearing and reviewing all of the evidence, the judge makes a ruling to allow or disallow the disputed amount and/or the duration of the benefits of the worker.
Within 30 days following a hearing, appeals may be made by either party. Upon approval of an appeal application, a panel of three Workers’ Compensation Board members is assigned to review the testimony and evidence of the case. Following the review, the board members may decide to modify, overturn or affirm the ruling of the previous judge.
