If a claimant disagrees with a benefit amount that the insurance carrier has agreed to pay them, they can ask an Administrative Law Judge to hear their case and decide what amount is fair under the law.  The hearing is a formal process where the claimant and other parties are allowed to put on evidence which is relevant to their claim, including live testimony, medical reports, vocational opinions, personnel records and any other documents which are necessary to prove a party’s case.  Hearing procedure is governed by a statute and a set of rules adopted by the Director of the Office of Administrative Courts (OAC) in the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment.  (Sections 8-43-207, 8-43-215, C.R.S.; Rules 1-28, OAC Rules of Procedure.)
