Yes, you can. No money is required to hire a workers’ compensation attorney. Lawyers who represent injured workers are paid a percentage of the amount that they receive for their clients.

Yes, there is a time limit in which you can claim workers’ compensation. The time limit is known as a statute of limitations. The statute of limitations in workers’ compensation is three years.

Maybe. While there are cases where an injured worker must use the company doctor for a period of 90 days there are a great many cases where this rule does not apply. This is one of the most important issues in a workers’ compensation case and the issue should be discussed with a workers’ compensation lawyer.
