Do I Need to Hire an Attorney?

If you receive injuries due to a workplace accident or in an accident caused by another person’s negligence, you may wonder if you need to hire an attorney to obtain compensation. While there are limited circumstances when you might not need a lawyer, there are many situations in which you won’t get the full compensation under the law unless you have legal representation. At Robinson & Kole, we never charge for your first consultation, so you can easily find out whether our lawyers can help with your workers’ compensation or personal injury claim — and you pay nothing to learn whether you need an attorney.

When Do You Need to Hire an Attorney?

In any case when you suffer injuries that require medical treatment, talking with an experienced workers’ compensation or personal injury attorney is strongly recommended. If your injury results in any of the following, you benefit from consulting with a lawyer to understand the value of your case:

  • Significant injuries that require extensive treatment and on-going medical bills
  • Long-term or permanent physical or emotional effects
  • Inability to do your regular job
  • Lost income due to missed work
  • Permanent disability or disfigurement from the injury
  • Disruption of your normal daily routine and relationships

What Does a Lawyer Do?

When you hire our workers’ compensation or personal injury lawyers at Robinson & Kole, we assume responsibility for handling all aspects of your claim and obtaining the compensation you deserve. We want you to be able to focus on your recovery and medical treatment, rather than worrying about what needs to be done to be compensated.

We collect all available evidence relating to the accident and your injuries. We conduct a thorough legal and factual analysis of the details to establish support for your claim. We determine the amount of compensation and benefits provided by law for your injury. Then we follow the applicable legal process to obtain compensation. Whether you have a work accident or personal injury claim, that means we deal with the insurance company responsible for paying the claim or the Department of Labor & Industries.
