A pre-hearing (also known as “pre-hearing conference”) is a meeting with a claimant or their attorney, representatives of the insurance carrier or self-insured employer, and a Pre-Hearing Administrative Law Judge (PALJ) to simplify the issues in their case, determine what evidence will be presented at hearing, or resolve any problems concerning exchange of information by the parties.  If one party to a worker’s compensation claim requests a pre-hearing, the other party must cooperate.  Pre-hearing judges can make decisions concerning the procedural aspects of your case, but they cannot decide whether a claimant is entitled to benefits.  (Section 8-43-207.5, C.R.S.).
