Do I really need a lawyer to represent me in a Workers’ Compensation Case?
If you have a serious injury, you will need the advice of an attorney who is experienced with Workers’ Compensation cases. Your employer and its insurance company will have their attorneys telling them how to save money on your injury. Why wouldn’t you want an experienced attorney to represent you so you got as much as possible out of your case?
Making a claim for Workers' Compensation benefits does not mean that you are morally deficient, corrupt or greedy. While the insurance industry (and some employers) would like for you to believe these things, it is purely and simply propaganda intended to line their pockets and deprive you of your basic rights.
If you have been hurt on the job and you have already returned to work without any problem, then you probably don’t need a lawyer. At the same time, if you feel like the employer or the insurance company still owes you some benefits and you can’t get them to pay you, get a free consultation over the telephone with the office of an attorney experienced in Workers’ Compensation cases.
