When a person has been injured at work and files for a workers’ compensation claim, then their claim will be heard in front of a Workers’ Compensation court. However, these claims can be notoriously complex, and they are very difficult to handle on your own without experienced counsel. You should know that if you are denied workers’ compensation benefits, then you have the right to appeal that decision. The biggest negative when you are forced to appeal though is the litigation process can become drawn out, and that process can include things like settlement negotiations, an independent medical examination or other hearings. Despite the fact that you may have a clear understanding of everything that caused your injury at work, you should still look to a lawyer who can pursue your claim. These are very time consuming cases, and experienced workers’ compensation attorneys will be very comfortable fighting for your claim.

There are many nuances in terms of what is admissible in court and what isn’t admissible in court, and they can be very difficult to learn. The judge who will be sitting for your workers’ compensation hearing will be expecting a formal presentation of your evidence and how much you believe you are entitled to. This is why a workers’ compensation attorney can be so valuable because they know how to present evidence effectively and how to advocate for your best interests. Here are some other reasons you need a lawyer for workers’ compensation hearings:
