One of the questions that I get asked quite often by prospective clients is, "I don't know if I need a lawyer at this point. I was just injured within the last day or week or just recently and I'm still in the process of pursuing my claim with my employer." To those clients, I say, "Your claim is being handled by insurance company lawyers from the moment that you report it. You need to be on the same level playing field as your employer and their insurance company. I would suggest that you get a competent attorney as quickly as possible." There's never a fee or cost to do that here at O'Malley & Langan unless we are successful and getting benefits for the injured worker.
