How soon should I contact a workers’ compensation attorney?

When you suffer a work injury, there can be many claims on your time and attention.  Reporting your accident to your employer, seeking medical attention, and answering questions about your accident can all take a toll on you, especially when you are in pain and discomfort.  

This is why we recommend hiring an attorney as soon as possible to represent you in your workers’ compensation claim.  You can hire a lawyer at almost any point in the process.  However, the best chances of success are when your attorney is involved in your claim from the beginning, and can help you gather evidence , negotiate with insurance companies, and make sure your claim is filed timely and properly

Our advice to injured workers is to do the following three steps immediately after they are injured:  report your accident, seek medical care, and call a workers’ compensation attorney.
