This would depend on the nature of your case. Let’s say you have sustained injuries such as a bruise or small cut that would heal completely, and the Employer/Insurer have agreed to pay your medical bills. It should not be necessary to have attorney assistance.
Let’s say the injury is of a more serious nature or if your claim is being contested by the Employer/Insurer. You would be well advised to retain the assistance of an attorney. They will assist you in navigating the very complicated claim process. The attorneys of Shugarman & Mehring have over 30 years experience representing injured workers in worker’s compensation claims.
