    Default Should You Get a Lawyer for a Workers Comp Appeal

    An employee was injured on the job and was denied workers comp benefits. He went to a workers comp panel hearing by himself and won benefits. His employer has now filed an appeal from that ruling. Should the employee get a lawyer?

    Default Re: Should You Get a Lawyer for a Workers Comp Appeal

    While I will congratulate the worker for doing so well without a lawyer to this stage of the proceedings, yes, I think it's time to lawyer up. The further you get into the appellate process, the more technical and difficult the proceedings become, and it's apparent that the employer and insurance company are prepared to put significant resources into defeating his claim.
