Your attorney should be able to answer this for you, but it won't be long. SInce you were in mediation, there is pending litigation. If a hearing is already scheduled, your lawyer will probably use that date to present your settlement to the Judge. If it is not scheduled, they will ask for a hearing and the Judge's office is usually quick at scheduling a hearing. Bottom line, ask your attorney and it won't be that long ... Congradulations & best of luck to you re: your settlement!

I am assuming from your question that you are already represented by an Attorney and this question would best be posed of your Attorney rather than posting it on the Internet.

Typically, the parties attempt to have a hearing before a Workers Compensation judge to approve a Compromise and E's Agreement within 2 to 4 weeks after the conclusion of a Mandatory Mediation Conference. This will all depend upon the schedule of the Judge and the two attorneys involved.

As noted above, you should contact your attorney to discuss these issues as he or she would be in a better position to address your concerns.

If you do not have an attorney to represent your interests st this time, it is recommended that you contact an attorney experienced in handeling Pennsylvania Workers Compensation Basis to discuss your proposed settlement. Please note that most attorneys will not charge for an initial consultation And will accept your case on a Contingent Fee Basis

This answer to your legal inquiry is based upon the limited facts stated in your question. Accurate legal advice is based upon an exchange between a lawyer and a client. The lawyer can then ask about other facts that may change or confirm the answer. Without that exchange, this reply should be considered limited in value. You should rely on this answer only at your own risk. Direct consultation with a lawyer is always recommended. Answering your question does not create an attorney-client relationship. The answering attorney is licensed in Pennsylvania and all answers are given pursuant to Pennsylvania law, unless otherwise indicated. If you have further questions regarding your issue, or my answer you may contact me to discuss this issue further by calling 215-496-9607 or sending an email to

Usually, it is a few weeks. However, there can be several complicating factors that could cause a delay or require more time. This is a question that would be best posed to your attorney.
