The New York Workers’ Compensation Board has implemented virtual hearings, which allow injured workers and attorneys to attend hearings online for claims in New York City and the surrounding boroughs. If you have a computer or a smartphone and access to internet, you no longer have to attend your hearings in person. Virtual hearings greatly reduce the amount of time attorneys spend traveling to hearing locations, giving us more time to focus on cases. We encourage clients to appear virtually from our office as this allows the attorneys and clients to have an in-depth conversation and review of their cases both before and after the hearings.
