When Should I Hire A Workers Comp Attorney?
Many victims of workplace injuries may settle for less than they deserve because they are uncertain if they should get a workman’s comp attorney. While there are many instances in which having the expertise of an attorney may be helpful, you may want to contact a workers comp attorney if:
- Your claim has been denied
- Your ability to work has been affected
- You experience difficulties in getting the treatment you need

In cases where a third-party was responsible for your accident (somebody other than your employer), you may be able to pursue a third-party lawsuit in addition to workers’ compensation. Filing a third-party lawsuit can allow you to seek additional damages not available under workers’ compensation, such as benefits for pain and suffering and a higher level of overall compensation.
If your injuries were caused solely by your employer or simply the wear and tear of your daily job duties, we can refer you to trusted attorneys who can handle your workers’ compensation claims.
