Legal Counsel


In most compensation cases — especially undisputed claims — it will not be necessary to retain an attorney. However, you always have the right to retain an attorney, at your expense, if you wish. (Information on workers’ compensation will be provided, free of charge, by your District Office or by the Workers’ Compensation Commission’s Education Services, if you do not have a lawyer on your case.)

If a Commissioner feels that legal counsel is advisable for you, he or she will inform you of your right to an attorney. In most cases, attorneys’ fees will be a percentage of your “settlement.” Any questions about attorneys’ fees should be directed to a Commissioner in the District Office.
