Legal Question in Workers Comp in California

I injured my back, arm and hand at work and have on temporary disability for nearly 2 years. My new adjuster just informed me that my benefits will stop next month and they will determine my settlement but I will probably be without benefits for 90 days. Should I consult/hire an attorney? My doctor didn't even start my back treatment until a few months ago because she forgot about it. I know a little about the 104 week cap; however the code states "per injury", not "per claim".
