BRC – Benefit Review Conference


We handle all matters related to appeals of a denied workers’ compensation claim, regardless of the stage of the process you are in. We will help you prepare for the Benefit Review Conference (BRC), whether a dispute resolution officer will act as a mediator in your case.

If the BRC does not result in a mutually agreeable settlement, your claim will be scheduled for a Contested Case Hearing (a CCH). In a Contested Case Hearing, the hearings officer can listen to testimony from witnesses, and will eventually render a decision.
