Workers' Compensation Hearings Lawyers

If there is a dispute at any stage of the workers' compensation process, either the employer or the employee can request a hearing in an effort to resolve it. Workers' compensation hearings are semiformal proceedings with a presiding judge to hear the arguments from each side and a court reporter to record everything that is said.

Your employer or its insurance company will have lawyers present to fight for its interests. Be sure that you have skillful legal representation to match them. At the Law Offices of Katherine L. Niven & Associates, PC, we represent employees who have been injured on the job. Our founding attorney, Katherine L. Niven, is a former Pennsylvania workers' compensation judge who presided over thousands of these hearings during her career on the bench. Ms. Niven and her team of workers' compensation hearing attorneys utilize proprietary strategies in pursuit of favorable outcomes for injured employees in these proceedings.

Diligently Seeking A Positive Result For Injured Workers

There can be a number of reasons for an employer or employee to request a hearing, including:

  • Actions to deny or approve benefits
  • Orders for an employee to undergo an Independent Medical Examination
  • Whether a particular expense is covered by workers' compensation

In some cases, judges can impose penalties against an employer or its insurance company for violations of the Workers' Compensation Act, such as consistently failing to make benefit payments in a timely manner. In every case, our only concern is to obtain a positive result for our clients. If the hearing does not produce a favorable outcome, we will examine the viability of an appeal.
