Do I have to go to court to get workers comp?

Do I have to go to court to get workers comp?

Most people are afraid to follower workers comp claim because I think that if they do they're going to have to go to court and fight in court to get workers comp. Very few cases actually end up in court on a worker's comp case. Whenever you get injured on the job, you follow your claim for compensation, then the insurance company will process the claim, oftentimes they will accept certain parts of the claim, deny certain parts of the claim, but we don't have to fight those things by going to court, we go in front of what's called an Administrative tribunal.

And you sit there in front of the judge and you just tell the judge what's happened. It's a very informal process but it's nothing to be uptight about and nothing to worry about. Most the times it’s just you, your lawyer, the insurance company's lawyer and the judge. It does have important legal consequences for you if you don't do things correctly. That's why it's always important that you have a lawyer if you're going to be involved in any type of legal lawsuit.
