Know Your Workers’ Compensation Hearing Time Table

Schiffman Law Office - books and gavelWhen it comes to getting injured on the job, you definitely have rights. However, to be awarded Workers’ Compensation benefits on a disputed matter you have to have your request for hearing on file with the Industrial Commission of Arizona within the time permitted (usually 90 days from the date the notice with which you disagree was mailed to you) and you must adhere to strict deadlines for the submission of documents and for the request for subpoenas for witnesses.  Failing to file the documents and subpoena requests timely may result in your claim being denied or your position rejected, leaving you out of luck, out of work, and out of money. Here is a list of important deadlines you must  take into account:

  • File and serve interrogatories and notices of disposition at least 40 days before the  first scheduled hearing.
  • File medical records at least 25 days before your first scheduled hearing.
  • File requests for subpoenas for  medical witnesses at least 20 days before the first scheduled hearing.
  • File all non-medical documents at least 15 days before the initial scheduled hearing.
  • File the request for lay witness subpoenas at least 10 days before the initial scheduled  hearing.

Again, it’s of the utmost importance that you adhere to all deadlines. We can help you with that! Contact Schiffman Law Office, P.C. and let’s work together to get that compensation you deserve. Call us now at (602) 235-0539 for a free initial consultation.
