Most workers compensation cases will require at least one court appearance at the Department of Industrial Accidents and that will most likely be for some sort of lump sum settlement in your case.
Watch Springfield Massachusetts Attorney Judd L. Peskin discuss Court Appearances in Workers Compensation Matters
Contested cases may require several appearances at the Department of Industrial Accidents to prove the amount of compensation you deserve. It is very unlikely for a case to go beyond the Department of Industrial Accidents to the Superior Court or even the Supreme Judicial Court, but occasionally those cases do happen. The lawyers at Peskin, Courchesne & Allen, can appear with clients at the Department of Industrial Accidents.
