When do I need to hire an attorney to represent me on my workers' compensation case?

Worker’s compensation cases are often hotly contested and complex. Time loss is often unpaid, or set too low; medical conditions and bills may be denied; or you may be told to return to a job that you cannot obtain or perform. When in doubt, consult with a lawyer, and the two of you can figure out if you need formal representation or just a bit of advice. Before we take on a client, we go over the case in detail and determine if the client needs our help to maximize his or her benefits. However, if you are getting your time loss, your medical bills are being paid, and you are going to return to work soon, you are probably fine on your own, and a brief conversation with an experienced attorney may be all you need at present.
