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.

I highly recommend the attorneys at Daggett Shuler! From my first visit to their office to my last has been a wonderful experience. My son and I were in a car accident and my stepfather recommended this law firm. Everyone was super nice, concerned, and caring. I received updates by calls and emails as the staff worked on my case. I myself made sure to provide quick responses on any requests the staff asked for. I would use their services again!
