Dear Valued Clients,
Given the nature of the current health threat that surrounds us, we are discouraging clients from visiting our offices. We are always available to you by phone and email. This is for the protection of our staff and clients.
Much has unfolded in the last few days regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. Maryland is taking unprecedented action to slow its spread and the situation is developing rapidly. Many of us are feeling unsettled right now, as our lives shift. We, at Ingerman & Horwitz, are with you in this uncertain time and we remain grateful for your business and friendship. The Maryland Workers’ Compensation Commission announced it has postponed all hearings from 03/16/2020 through 04/03/2020. We understand the difficulty this will cause injured workers who are waiting for treatment and/or back pay.
While health officials urge us to practice social distancing, we are allowing some of our staff to work from home. We have been preparing for this eventuality and our practice is set up to work from anywhere, anytime. Bottom line…this will NOT impact our representation. Our team has all the tools they need to fight for your rights while working from home. We are ALL available via phone and email.
We would like to offer a particular thank you to those of you who are – or will be – working on the “front lines” of the COVID-19 response in our area. Those in health care, first-responders, emergency workers, utility and municipal employees, and other essential personnel: THANK YOU for helping to protect and provide for our community.
To everyone: please take care of yourself, your families, neighbors and community. We at Ingerman & Horwitz are here for you. Let us know if you need anything.
