Tag: PA Work Comp Hearings Info

If you are an injured worker and you receive a hearing notice, you want to speak to your PA Work Comp Lawyer as soon as possible. If you don’t have one, call PA workers’ compensation attorneys at (215) 206-9068. There are some Judges who want the injured worker present at all hearings, and other Judges who don’t expect the attendance unless testimony is being presented.

The Duration of the PA Work Comp Hearing

How long will a Pennsylvania Work Comp Hearing take?

It depends! Sounds like a lawyerly answer, I know- but it’s true. Some hearings are 5 minutes or less- where the lawyers are giving the Judge an update with the evidence.

It depends! Sounds like a lawyerly answer, I know- but it’s true. Some hearings are 5 minutes or less- where the lawyers are giving the Judge an update with the evidence.

Other hearings can take an hour or longer if testimony is being taken. If you have a PA Work Comp settlement hearing, that often takes only about 10 minutes or so. Of course, you could be sitting around for much longer, just waiting for the Judge to dispose of prior cases, but the settlement hearings, once started, are quick.

The Dress Code For PA Workers’ Compensation Hearings

Do you need to dress up?

You should look respectable. That’s the bottom line. You are not required to wear a dress if you are a lady or a suit if you are a man. But showing up to Court in jean shorts or a tank top is not advised.

The Attendees of Workers’ Comp Hearing

Who will attend the hearing? Well, the Work Comp Judge will be presiding. The two workers comp PA lawyers (sometimes more PA workers compensation employee rights attorneys, if there is a “joinder petition”) will be present. Sometimes you will need to attend, per the above, and sometimes a witness from the employer will be there, or even the adjustor/claims rep. It depends on what’s happening at the hearing.

Again, always touch base with your PA workers compensation attorneys when you receive a hearing notice. They may not have all the details in place when the hearing notice comes out, about what will be happening at the hearing, but it’s a good practice to touch base anyway, and then stay tuned as the hearing approaches.

The Recording of Workers’ Comp Hearing

Will the hearing be recorded?

Some Judges may not make a record if it’s just a quick update. Other Judges like to go on the record for every case, no matter what’s occurring. There will be a stenographer there, taking down each word that is said and a transcript can be requested.

"[They] did an excellent job in getting me financially compensated in a fairly short amount of time."

"I recently had a work related injury and was receiving Workers' Compensation (medical benefits only). Soon after I was fired, so I contacted Paul Silver at Cardamone Law Firm who did an excellent job in getting me financially compensated in a fairly short amount of time. Paul and his assistant Shirley always responded to any questions I had about the case in a very short amount of time. Thank you for helping me with this difficult case."

"Mike Cardamone is amazing"

"Mike Cardamone is amazing. He is "hands down" one of the best lawyers I've ever had the privilege of knowing. He is very kind, understanding, knowledgeable in his field, always very thorough and helpful. He was extremely professional and someone who truly cares about his clients. I felt completely at ease with him. He was a pleasure to work with, explained everything in detail, as well as answered all my questions with knowledge and care. If you want someone you can trust, who communicates every step of the way, will fight for you and make sure you win your case, he is it! I will refer all my family and friends to him. Thank you so much Mike, for everything. I appreciate all your hard work and dedication in helping me."

Without a doubt YOU are the best!!!

"Without a doubt YOU are the best!!! Every person who is in the horrible position of being injured at work should have someone as kind, compassionate and knowledgeable as you on their side. You never once made me feel like I was one of a hundred other clients. I always knew you had my back! You answered calls and emails at all hours. You fought every fight for me so I only had to worry about getting well. Behind your nice, calm face there’s a pit bull ready to take on any employer or judge. I can never thank you enough."
