You definitely DO NOT need an attorney for every case. In fact, we may not accept a particular case and will advise you to proceed on your own. Why would we do this? Because, in many of these cases the system actually works and pays the benefits you are entitled to as an injured worker. Don’t be fooled by promises that an attorney makes that she or he will get you what you deserve. Pain and suffering is not part of a workers’ compensation case (unlike a lawsuit before a jury). However, an experienced attorney can evaluate and assess your claim, and obtain the maximum benefit that you should be entitled to.
