Have you been injured at your Vermont place of employment? Is the workers’ compensation insurance carrier denying your claim? If so you, under Vermont law, have a right to appeal this determination to the Vermont Workers’ Compensation Board, where an evidentiary hearing will be held to determine the merits of your claim.
In order to best prepare for these hearings, it is important that all medical records surrounding the injury have been secured and that you have medical experts able to opine that the injuries suffered are related to your employment.
Although the rules governing Workers Compensation hearings are less strict than those governing Superior Court cases, the nuances are extensive and need to be examined in order to best determine your course of action.
