work comp hearing

How long does it take to get a worker’s compensation hearing before a Judge?


Every case is different. Most workers’ compensation claims are settled without a hearing. The Workers’ Compensation Board of Indiana requires both parties to make attempts to settle their disputed issues on their own before bringing them in front of a Judge. Going through this process can take some time.

Hearings are scheduled in either the county where the injury occurred, the county where the employer is located, or a county nearby.
