Do I Need an Attorney to Handle a Workers’ Compensation Claim?

 

When can I handle a workers’ compensation claim myself, and when do I need an attorney?

Workers should be very careful trying to handle their own workers’ compensation cases. This is a complicated part of the law, and employers and insurance companies can take advantage of workers’ confusion to avoid paying what they owe.

You may be able to handle your own claim if there is no disagreement about whether you’re entitled to benefits, or you’re receiving the full amount of benefits and medical treatment you need and your injuries are minor in nature. However, if your claim has been denied or you have required surgery or have permanent disability or restrictions, or have been offered a settlement, you should call an attorney right away.

If you feel you need an attorney for your workers compensation claim, visit our workers comp webpage, request a free consultation, or give us a call at 800-815-5500.

As a client , I must say their firm is the most caring and knowledgeable of any I know. They are prompt with answering questions. They treat you how you want to be treated. They effectively helped me in the most critical stages of my appeals in 2 different areas. I had 2 different attorneys that were experts in the areas of law to best help serve me. Their assistants gave me fast and efficient service as well. The attorneys were available to speak to whenever necessary. They are just great people! Quality is the best word to describe the staff!! I would recommend to all who need help.
