    Default When to Hire a WC Attorney

    My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: Arizona

    Injuried 12/21/12 and have not heard anything from IC/CA! I have left a number of messages with my CA asking the status of my claim. When should you hire an atty? My doctor gave me two weeks off of work after receiving Cervical Spine MRI and placed me on restrictions 4 hour days for the past two weeks. I am no longer employed and looking for a job!!!

    What to do??? Thank you

    You were hurt nearly two months ago, have lost your job, have not heard from the insurance carrier, and you are wondering if it is time yet to hire a lawyer?

    Yes, it is time. In fact, you are about a month late, so don't delay any longer. Good luck to you.
