North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Hearings
If your benefits are denied or you have other disputes with your employer or its insurance carrier, or issues regarding reaching MMI, it may be necessary to schedule a hearing before the North Carolina Industrial Commission. A hearing is the term for a trial of a workers’ compensation claim. If you hire us, we will ensure that you are fully prepared for this important part of your case, as you will be required to testify and will be the most important witness. You may have to testify about your injury, your medical care, and the effect of your injury on your ability to work. We may call other witnesses for you, such as your spouse, friends, or neighbors. Recorded depositions of your doctors will also be presented as part of your case. Once the hearing is completed, the lawyers for each side gather medical testimony and send briefs to the Deputy Commissioner for a decision. However, not all cases go to a hearing and many cases settle before reaching that point. An experienced attorney can assist you in obtaining the best result.
