Filing a workers’ compensation claim on your own can be a difficult task and you may have found that it can also lead to a denial of your claim. If you have been denied workers’ compensation benefits, or you are not getting the medical attention you deserve, or you are not getting paid for the time you’re missing from work, the next step is to file a Petition for Benefits.
How Do I Successfully File A Claim?
When there is dispute over your entitlement to workers’ compensation benefits, the first step is to file a Petition for Benefits with the Office of the Judges of Compensation Claims. Filing a Petition can be difficult, and there are statutory and procedural requirements that must be filed to ensure that you’re Petition is not dismissed.
Following the filing of a Petition, a mandatory mediation conference is scheduled. If the parties are unable to resolve the dispute at mediation, a hearing is scheduled with the Judge of Compensation Claims to address the benefit dispute. Following the Judge’s ruling, either party has thirty (30) days to file a Notice of Appeal.
