Workers' Compensation Board Panel Hearings ∙ Full Board Reviews

If your initial Workers' Compensation application has been denied, you have the right to request a review from a three-person Workers' Compensation review board. It is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible, as you have only 30 days from the date of the initial denial to file this review claim. Further, this panel hearing is not the time to clean up or make additions to your initial filing. The initial filing is the primary source of evidence that the board will review and you will not have the opportunity to introduce new evidence, so it is crucial to make sure you get the initial filing perfect at the beginning of the Workers' Compensation process. If the board denies your appeal, you will still have the chance to request a full board review, followed by an appeal to the courts.
