If you’ve been recently injured at work, you may be wondering if it’s worth it to hire a work injury lawyer.
Generally, if your injury is minor such as a minor cut on the hand or a sprained ankle, you don’t need an attorney. You can also get by without an attorney if you didn’t miss many days of work due to your injury and your employer and its Workers’ Compensation carrier freely admit you sustained the injury at work.
But even if your situation is uncomplicated, it’s still a good idea get a free consultation with a workers’ compensation lawyer to discuss your case. The lawyer can explain the legal process, note any potential problems, and inform you whether you should or shouldn’t handle the case without a lawyer.
