What does a Workers Comp Hearing room look like ?
Herndon, Reston and Dulles work injury lawyer Doug Landau has tried workers comp claims all over Virginia. The Hearing rooms are not all the same, with some cases being heard in City Council Chambers, others in libraries and still others in Unemployment Offices and court rooms. One of the busiest locations for deciding Virginia Workers Compensation claims is the Fairfax Office. The Northern Virginia Regional Office has two dedicated Hearing rooms, and in addition to the judges who have offices in Fairfax County, other judges routinely come up from the headquarters in Richmond to decide workplace injury, occupational disease and job fatality claims. All the Hearing rooms make use of microphones and tape recording equipment so that a transcript can be typed up later of the judge to review and in case there are any appeals taken by the parties. That is why lawyer Landau recommends, regardless of the acoustics of the Hearing room, that you keep your voice up, look at the judge and enunciate.
