WHAT IS A HEARING?

Did you get a Notice like this in the mail?  

It is a Notice of Hearing.  

A "Hearing" is a court date.  It is usually when one of the attorneys files for a time in front of a judge, so the parties can "meet and confer" or talk about a case. 

 

Sometimes the hearing will proceed to trial (have another court date) or be continued to a future date if the parties cannot settle their dispute at the first hearing.  

Sometimes it can be because your attorney requested temporary disability benefits and there was no response from the insurance company, or you want to change your doctor (primary treating physician - PTP), but you do not have an authorization letter.  

You have to be available on the date and time, so your attorney can talk to you.  Call our office at 831-753-9127 if you have a hearing and you do not know why.  

We help our clients and talk to you on your court date.  We request a certified interpreter be available to interpret for those who need it.
