Process After the Claim Has Been Filed

The workers’ compensation process typically begins with filing a claim petition with the Department of Labor. The employer, or respondent, then files an answer to the claim.

 

An exchange of medical records follows. The Mark Law Firm typically obtains client records from the employer’s insurance company. The medical records should identify the treatment undergone, the diagnosis and/or prognosis, and any possibility of future surgery.

 

Once our office has received your medical records, we will schedule an appointment for you with our medical expert. The medical expert will speak with you, review your records, and write a thorough and competent report identifying your degree of permanency. “Permanency” is a term used in workers’ compensation law to refer to the degree of your injury.
