Question:

Should I attend my workers’ compensation hearing?

Answer:

Clients often contact us with concerns after having filed a claim, saying they are nervous about the process going forward and whether or not they will need to attend a Workers’ Compensation hearing. Throughout the entire Workers’ Compensation process, you have to understand that not everybody has your best interests. A lot of employers will do the right thing and make sure that you get the treatment that you deserve; other times, the employers will deny claims despite the fact that they know that you got injured at work.

Still other times, Workers' Compensation Hearingit’s not the employer that’s getting in the way— it’s their insurance carrier. The insurance carrier has denied a claim despite the fact that your supervisor, or your foreman, or your human resource representative knows that you got injured at work and agrees that you got injured at work. Despite all that, they have an insurance carrier that is denying your claim.

If you’re nervous about making sure that your claim is accepted or you’re nervous about going in front of the Workers’ Compensation Appeal Board, make sure that you understand that there are attorneys out there that can assist you through that process. If you have questions regarding the process going forward, including sitting for depositions or showing up to hearings, feel free to give me a call. I’m happy to answer any questions that you may have as to what to expect once you file a Workers’ Compensation claim here in California.
