"final hearing" usually means all the evidence supporting both sides of the issue is to be submitted for a judges decision.
"attendance required" means you have to be there in order for it to happen.

I'm not sure it applies to all issues. when applying for a hearing, specific issues to be decided have to be stated.
final hearing doesn't mean there can't be additional hearings on issues not yet known.

if you don't trust your attys to manage your litigation you should start looking for another.
some things can't be undone.

The final hearing must occur within 210 days of the filing of the Petition for Benefits. The judge of compensation claims sets the time and date after receiving the mediation report showing that all the issues were not resolved at mediation. The final hearing is run like a trial without a jury and is held in the workers' compensation district in which the accident occurred. The judge hears evidence and witnesses from the claimant and then from the employer/carrier. Within thirty (30) days after the final hearing, the judge of compensation claims issues a written decision as to whether the claimant is entitled to the benefits claimed.

Within thirty (30) days after the final hearing order, either party may appeal the judge's decision to a three-judge panel of the Florida First District Court of Appeal in Tallahassee. However, an appeal is not a second chance. The appellate court will change the judge's decision only if the judge either misapplied the law or made factual findings that were not supported by the evidence at the final hearing. Therefore, only a very small percentage of final hearing orders are changed on appeal. If an appeal is taken, the decision from the appellate court usually takes at least six months.

It's just a definition. Or theory of what it can be, or be for.

i found out this final hearing is something the state automatically does when a petition for benefits is filed. most likely it will be dismissed once the ic approves the psych eval.

also has any of you all dealt with depression with your injuries? i dont know if its my meds or the pain or the combination but im an upbeat person normally and i find my self going up and down all the time its like a wave! i hope they get this going cause i think it will help with me dealing with all this!
