Whether you need an attorney is really up to you. If your employer is a company, it will be represented by an attorney. Each case is different and has unique facts. Only a lawyer can provide legal advice. A lawyer serves as your advocate and an intermediary between you and the insurance company. Therefore, if you have legal questions, need to go to hearing, or are just tired of dealing with the insurance company, you may want to have a lawyer. At Montrose & Chua, we provide free consultations in order to determine whether we can help you.
