Workers Compensation Litigation & Trials

Workers’ Compensation Litigation and Trials

Most issues in a Workers’ Compensation case resolve informally, without the need to go to court to have a judge decide the matter. When issues arise that cannot be resolved between the injured worker and the insurance company, the injured worker can file a Petition for Benefits which triggers the scheduling of a mediation and a trial before the Judge of Compensation Claims. It is nearly impossible for an injured worker to present their case to the judge without the assistance of an experienced Workers’ Compensation attorney. There are many procedural and evidentiary rules which apply when you go before the judge. Olivia has decades of trial experience, including her service as a Workers’ Compensation Judge when she made decisions about the injured worker’s benefits.
