Do I Need An Attorney?

The decision to retain an attorney is an important one that no one else can make for you. While it may be tempting to try and represent yourself during your workers' compensation claim, there are many complex issues that only a trained, experienced workers' compensation lawyer can identify and resolve.

It is typically best to work with an attorney if any of these situations apply to your case:

  • You require surgery for a severe workplace injury.
  • Your doctor believes that your health won't return to the condition it was prior to your injury.
  • You have been denied benefits for medical treatment.
  • You believe you are capable of working, but are not able to return to your original job.
  • Your injury is so severe that you believe you can no longer work in any job.
  • Your employer, employer's insurance company or state workers' compensation division has made an incorrect or unjust decision that you need to dispute.
  • You have concerns that you are not receiving the full amount of workers' compensation benefits to which you are entitled under the law.
  • Your employer has disputed a decision made by the workers' compensation judge or tried to avoid paying your claim.
  • You would feel more comfortable about your workers' compensation claim if you had an advocate protecting your interests and communicating with your employer or insurer.
