I am going to have to file a dispute with regard to my Workers’ Compensation claim. What is involved in that process?

There are a number of things involved in dispute resolution, such as benefit review conferences, contested case hearings, a possible appeals panel, judicial review of division decisions and potentially arbitration.

How your dispute is handled is largely dependent on the facts of the case, the medical information provided and the interpretation of the information received. In dispute resolution cases, it is in your best interests to be represented by an attorney knowledgeable about workplace injuries and the workers’ compensation rules and regulations.

Furthermore, it is best if you do not attempt to represent yourself due to the fact that the system is extremely complex and if the wrong information is provided or not provided, the outcome of your appeal could be drastically affected. Make it a point to contact a workplace injury attorney who can help you work your way through the dispute resolution process.
