The vast majority of disputed workers' compensation claims are resolved through favorable settlements. For the small number of claims that can't be settled, workers' comp hearings offer a way for injured workers to finally reach an agreement with the insurance companies and get the compensation they deserve. The following answers a few questions you may have if you're scheduled to attend a formal hearing. 1. Who Attends the Hearing? In addition to yourself and your attorney, you can also expect your employer's legal representative and/or the insurance company's attorney to be present.
Have you recently been let go from your job? Do you feel that the termination was illegal in any way? It is time for you to stand up to unfair employment practices by your former employer. An employment attorney helped me get through an impossible time more easily. I had no idea how serious the repercussions for terminating my position could be for the company, nor did I know how much the company would owe me for doing so. Thankfully, the attorney took the time to answer each and every question that I had and discussed all of my options. I have included much of what I learned on my website to help others learn what they could be owed if they were unlawfully terminated from their jobs.
