Do I need an attorney for my Workers Compensation claim?

If you have an injury from a work accident that heals completely in a short time and you miss no work, and your employer's insurance carrier gives appropriate medical care and provides pharmaceuticals as needed, you may not need a workers' compensation attorney.

On the other hand, if your injury is serious enough to keep you out of work for more than 1 week, or is expected to leave you with a permanent limitation or impairment, you will be at a disadvantage unless you are familiar with the Workers' Compensation statutes, regulations, case law, and procedures. 

An insurance adjuster has no legal or ethical duty to look out for your best interests.  An experienced Workers' Compensation Attorney can make sure you receive all benefits to include compensation and medical treatment now, and in the future, if applicable.
