The state will provide a worker’s compensation specialist to guide you through the process of filing the petition. That person will answer any questions you have about the hearing process. However, if the case goes to a hearing, you must arrange for medical witnesses and schedule depositions prior to the hearing date. That is work best done by an attorney. Do not rely on a specialist employed by the Office of Workers’ Compensation to guide you. Let us help you instead.
