Not having a lawyer present when signing documents.

Not only will an adjuster ask for a recorded statement, he may ask an injured worker to sign documents. While the workers’ compensation system is not a court of law, signing any document could bind you to a compensation agreement. Often, these initial offers are much lower than what an injured worker deserves.

Not hiring an experienced attorney.

While the law does not require an injured worker to hire an attorney to obtain workers’ compensation benefits, the experience and knowledge of an attorney can be invaluable.
