When Do I Need A Workers' Compensation Attorney?

Should You Try To "Do It Yourself?"

Nobody likes extra hassle. If you've been injured at work, the last thing you want is one more item — "call a lawyer" — on your to-do list. It's understandable that you may want to handle your claim yourself, believing that you could save time and money by doing so. But in some cases, by trying to do everything yourself, you may actually be laying the groundwork for greater time commitment and expense. This is particularly true if you find yourself in a dispute with your employer's workers' compensation insurance company.

Experience Informs Our Approach

A lawyer familiar with the workers' compensation process is more likely to be able to spot potential pitfalls and navigate the system more efficiently than someone who is encountering it for the first time.
