Partner Sean Riordan was interviewed on the Nassau County Correction Officers Benevolent Association's podcast: COBA Monthly. Host, and NC COBA President, Brian Sullivan and Sean discussed Workers' Comp benefits available for officers injured in the course of their duty and the procedures to follow when you are injured on the job. This includes filling out the proper paper work to begin your workers' compensation claim, obtaining the necessary treatment your doctor prescribes for your injury and hurdles that you may face throughout the process. Sean highlights the process of negotiations with the workers' compensation board and insurance companies, while working with injured workers to get the compensation they deserve.
Sean also discussed the legal elements that a Correction Officer must prove in order to receive 3/4’s retirement benefits due to a permanent disability. Retirement Law Section 607-C benefits were highlighted in the conversation and Sean discussed the various cases currently being litigated which may impact 3/4’s benefits.
