When Will My Workers Compensation Case Go To Court

The State Board of Workers’ Compensation will not schedule a trial (also known as an “evidentiary hearing”) unless and until an injured worker files a Form WC-14/Request for Hearing.  Shortly after an injured worker (or an injured workers’ attorney) requests a hearing, the State Board usually schedules a trial for first-setting.

It is important to note, however, that most workers’ compensation cases don’t go to court on the first setting, but instead usually go to court three to six months after an injured worker requests a hearing.  Depending on the facts and issues in a case, a hearing may even be delayed longer than six months.
