The Workers’ Compensation Court (WCC) is OPEN for business. Yes, this is true.
While you may have heard that the Rhode Island Courts are closed but for Emergency Matters, this is not the case for the Workers’ Comp Court.
The WCC is hearing Petitions, or cases, telephonically or by video.
If you have an injury from work and need to have issues addressed such as receiving weekly payments, obtaining required medical treatment, payments for disfigurement, scarring, or loss of use, now is the time to pursue your rights and obtain the relief you are entitled.
You can also settle your claim during this unfortunate pandemic.
Feel free to contact my office and schedule a consultation — whether by phone or video.
