Should You Hire An Attorney For a Massachusetts Workers Compensation Case?

Many people injured at work in Massachusetts decide to handle their Massachusetts workers compensation case on their own.  With very limited exceptions, that generally is a bad idea.  Unless you have already returned to work and were paid all benefits you were entitled to, hiring an attorney generally is a smart decision.   Here are some reasons as to why it helps to hire a workers compensation lawyer for your Massachusetts workers compensation case.

Experience

An experienced attorney can make all the difference for your case.  The insurance company has their own lawyers so you should have one too.  The insurance company lawyers know their way around the Massachusetts Department of Industrial Accidents and you likely have never been there before.   Plus, the insurance company will take your Massachusetts workers compensation case more seriously, if you have an experienced Massachusetts workers compensation lawyer on your side.

Results

Results are another thing you get when hiring a workers compensation lawyer.  You want to have the best possible result for your case and having an attorney on your side makes that possible.  There is much nuance and complexity to Massachusetts workers compensation law so you want to make sure the result you get is the best one possible.  If you represent yourself you won’t get the results you are looking for.
