Workers’ Compensation Hearings Lawyers
If a dispute occurs 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 stated.
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 Marzzacco Niven & Associates, we bring experience and results to every case we represent for employees who have been injured on the job. Historically, our founding attorney, Katherine L. Niven, was a former Pennsylvania workers’ compensation judge who presided over thousands of these hearings during her career on the bench. Our current team of workers’ compensation hearing attorneys now use proprietary strategies in pursuit of favorable outcomes for injured employees in these proceedings.
Diligently Seeking A Positive Result For Injured Workers
An employer or employee can request a hearing for many reasons, including:
- Actions to deny or approve benefits
- Orders for an employee to undergo an Independent Medical Examination
- Concerns over 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.
