Why You Need An Experienced DC Workers Comp Lawyer To Evaluate Your Settlement
Like the answer to so many questions - it's possible, but is it the right thing to do? It is possible to settle your DC workers comp case without a lawyer, and for a very minor injury when you're settling for just a few thousand dollars, that may be the right thing to do.
Otherwise, you would have to trust the workers comp insurance company and the insurance company lawyer to look out for your interests. Neither one has any duty to you.
So, you may be seriously undervaluing the case, or not aware of additional workers comp benefits you could get that would increase the value of the settlement, or may have had a minor injury in a different state before and done it all yourself (DC workers comp is much different than Maryland or Virginia).
First of all, with any serious injury or if you are a high wage earner, you need the right DC workers comp lawyer to evaluate your entire case to make sure you are getting everything you and your family are entitled to.
DC workers comp is a confusing, complicated system - you have to know the workers comp statute, 58 chapters of workers comp regulations and decisions from the DC Court of Appeals and the Compensation Review Board. Unless you really study all of this (like insurance companies do) and have the experience and expertise to negotiate a settlement on your own, you could be leaving serious money on the table.
To Get A Great Workers Comp Settlement In DC You Have To Know The System
Fact is, the workers comp insurance company and their lawyers won't tell you about the benefits you could be getting for your serious injury in the future, and why would they? They don't work for you and they don't have any duty to you.
So don't let them take advantage of you. But how do you know?
