As a New York Workers Compensation Law Firm we were pleased to read about the appointment of Robert E. Beloten as the next Chair of the New York Workers' Compensation Board in yesterday's New York Times. White Plains Workers Compensation law firm partner Stu Muroff commented, "I have appreared before former Workers' Compensation Law Judge Beloten on many occasions. A well reasoned and fair determination could always be expected from him. I am confident that Commissioner Beloten will take his expertise from the bench and apply it to his new position as Chairman. I wish him all the best in his new position." Having a Chair with real compensation world experience will help all parties, particularly injured workers navigate the complex world of workers compensaiton.
