  2. 2. Full article and much more information on the topic can be found at:http://claim-expert.net There are many people who have claimed certain benefits, but didn’t eventually get compensated and that is why for someone in this situation it’s very important they take action fast.
  3. 3. However, there are cases in which the worker will file a dispute against his employer over entitlements to benefits, dispute in which he can easily file an application for informal hearing. After the individual files the claim, a judge will take on the case so it can be solved as soon as possible.
  4. 4. Filing a statements of claim The issues are quite a few and they can include: The claim’s compensability (if the illness or injury is considered to be work related). The payment of temporary disability benefits. The extent and also the type of medical treatment.
  5. 5. On top of that, in situations involving alleged death on the job, people may seek dependency benefits. As a worker, the individual will generally be represented by a lawyer, yet if they choose, people may also want to file a claim petition on their own. Legal defense is usually provided on behalf of a covered employer by an insurance carrier.
  6. 6. Informal Claims When it comes to cases of dispute, an insurance carrier, employer or employee can receive compensation by filing an application for an informal hearing in front of a judge. This is a good choice for many people who don’t really have the time or means of resolving various issues by involving a court, which will only result in higher costs and a lengthy formal litigation.
  7. 7. At this type of hearing, the issues addressed include: Permanency benefits. Medical treatment. The value of temporary benefits. Learning More About Claiming Benefits. Suggestions Are Not Binding Filing Informal Claims What people need to keep in mind is that judge’s suggestions during these kinds of hearings are not binding for both parties and the employee can easily choose to file a formal claim petition if he wants to.

  10. 10. It takes only a single or maximum 2 hearings for informal claims to be resolved. One thing that people need to keep in mind is that filing an application for one such hearing doesn’t really stop the statute of limitations (lasting for 2 years) from running.
  11. 11. Formal Claims If he wants, the worker that got injured can also file a claim petition during the statutory period with the Division. It takes some time though for the first hearing to be held before a judge (usually 180 days from the date of filing). Most claim petitions are usually settled by mutual agreement as to the extent of disability and the value of the benefits due.
  12. 12. If in the pretrial stage the disagreements can’t be resolved, the trial will then commence with the lay witnesses, medical witnesses and the injured worker’s taking of testimony. Based on the relevant info brought for the case, the judge will in the end take a decision and his ruling will be binding.
  13. 13.  Motions for Temporary or Medical Benefits If the worker is in need of prompt temporary benefits or medical treatment, the law also provides immediate recourse.That is why in such cases the individual may want to file a motion for temporary and medical benefits, motion that’s going to be assigned a hearing within 30 days after it’s filed.  Full article and much more information on the topic can be found at:http://claim-expert.net
