The list of possible legal issues that may be addressed at a New York State Workers’ Compensation hearing are far too long to list here. However, your notice of hearing should provide an idea as to why the hearing has been scheduled.
In order to accurately determine what can be expected at your hearing, a case evaluation should be performed. Some hearings involve sworn testimony of the claimant, lay witnesses, or even doctors. Often times, the claimant is expected to provide evidence in support of his or her claim at the time of the hearing.
