Q: Attempting to represent myself in a work comp denial case. Getting worried about not understanding the process.
Scared with all the attorneys notices I'm receiving.. I have questions but not finding the help I need without representation. I'm not suing just want employer to pay for repair. Or am I really suing?
A: Workperson compensation claims can be complex. I understand that lawyers cost money, but listen to your inner voice. If you feel like you are in over your head contact a lawyer. Some lawyers work on a lower fee basis (contingent, lowers fees, and potentially fixed fee). The internet is good for answering basic questions, but no internet search can provide you with case-specific guidance. Call around, if you keep reasonable expectations on what you want in from a lawyer, you should be able to find someone who can help you without costing you massive amounts of money (by lawyer standards).
