When you make a claim for benefits and that claim is denied, you may need to attend a hearing. We routinely represent injured and disabled workers in hearings. Here is what you can expect.What Happens at WCC Hearings?
If you do need to go to a worker's compensation hearing, it's very important that you are represented by an attorney, because at the hearings, there are certain rules that need to be followed, certain evidence that the commission needs to have in order to make the proper decision. We know what that is because we handle these hearings on a frequent basis. If you have a worker's compensation hearing coming up, please contact us and see if we could help you with that hearing.What Happens at an SSD Hearing?
Every Social Security hearing is a little bit different, but they all generally go the same way. You're asked a series of questions by your attorney as well as the judge. And the point of these questions is to find out how you're doing on a daily basis given your various illnesses, injuries – all the problems that you're having that have left you unable to work. And it's our opportunity and your opportunity to explain to the judge why you should be entitled to a disability benefit, why you're no longer able to work. And it's also the best opportunity to win your case and be found disabled in front of the judge.
