Everything You Need to Know About Your Workers' Comp Trial | Pistolas

A workers’ compensation trial is a court proceeding in which an injured worker and the worker’s employer dispute the terms of a workers’ compensation settlement. The workers’ comp trial is held before a judge, and both sides present evidence and arguments.

If you are an injured worker who is dissatisfied with the settlement offer from your employer, you have the right to request a trial. The trial process can be complex, and you may need to hire an attorney to represent you.

This post will explain everything you need to know about the workers’ comp trial process, including how to request a trial and what to expect.

The Basics of a Workers’ Comp Trial

If you are an injured worker who is dissatisfied with the settlement offer from your employer, you may request a trial. The trial is held before a judge, and both sides present evidence and arguments.

The first step in requesting a trial is to file a notice of appeal with the workers’ compensation board. The notice must be filed within 30 days of the date on which the settlement offer was made.

Once the notice of appeal is filed, the board will set a date for the trial. The trial will be held before a judge, and both sides will have the opportunity to present evidence and arguments.

After the trial, the judge will issue a decision. If the judge finds in favor of the injured worker, the employer will be required to provide the workers’ compensation benefits that are owed. If the judge finds in favor of the employer, the injured worker will not receive any benefits.
