Will my case go to trial?

Possibly. There are a variety of different types of proceedings in the Minnesota workers’ compensation system, including administrative conferences, 0.239 conferences, and hearings, which are workers’ compensation “trials.” While the majority of cases do not go to “trial” or hearing, some cases do. Hearings are held before a workers’ compensation judge without a jury. They usually take between a few hours and a day. We represent clients at workers’ compensation hearings on a regular basis.
