Do you need a lawyer to file your worker's compensation claim?
Not necessarily. People who have sustained an injury at work can file workers' compensation claims on their own. Also, they may be able to receive help from a union representative.
However, the workers' compensation clauses in employees' contracts are often long and complicated. In order to fairly interpret them and to fully recover damages, many people are advised to hire a lawyer. Without a lawyer, some people may miss out on compensation payments that they should have received.
