Will My Workers’ Compensation Case Go to Trial?If you are involved in a workers’ comp dispute, you may be wondering, “Will my workers’ compensation case go to trial?” Watch this video to find out.
Will I be required to go to court for my workers’ compensation claim?
A question we sometimes get early in the process is whether or not a client will need to go to a hearing or to court if they file a Workers’ Compensation claim. For the most part, it will depend on how far your claim goes and what the Workers’ Compensation Board will require of you. I would say that, for the most part, most cases don’t actually go to hearing. Once you hire an attorney, the insurance carrier and the employer will work with us to make sure that you receive the treatment that you deserve. Some of that is making sure that you see specialists that need to see you. Sometimes, that requires you to go and sit for depositions for you to explain how you got injured. While every claim is different, for the most part, you won’t be required to go to the Workers’ Compensation Board for a hearing. With that being said, we will assist you through every step of the process. If you ultimately have to go to the board, you’ll have an attorney with you; if you sit for a deposition regarding your claim, an attorney will be with you. If you have questions regarding the process, I think it’s important for you to find an attorney in California who can assist you through that process.
