If your claim is small and you will not be out of work for a long period of time, you may not need an attorney. However, even with a small case you may not know what your claim is worth. Without that information, you may be settling for a figure that is far less than your claim is actually worth.
Hiring an attorney will help you determine the value of the case, and rather the insurance company has given you a fair offer or not. Even if you think your case is too small to require a lawyer, seeking an consultation is not a bad idea. Remember, once you sign something or agree to a settlement, your choices may be locked in forever. Contact a worker’s compensation lawyer before you go one step further.
