In Florida, a workers' compensation trial or evidentiary hearing takes place before a workers' compensation judge and no jury. The first stage of the trial is a discovery process which allows your lawyer to gather evidence by taking depositions of witnesses and reviewing medical records.
During the trial, your workers' compensation lawyer will present the reasons why you are entitled to the benefits you are seeking through opening and closing arguments, witness testimony, and evidence. Your employer's attorney will also present their own witness testimony and evidence.
After hearing all of the evidence and arguments, the judge will make a decision.
The expertise and insight of a workers’ compensation lawyer can be invaluable in proving your case before the workers' compensation judge. This hearing is your final chance to fight for the benefits you deserve and the insurance company will be prepared with their own evidence and lawyers.
