The short answer is yes. It depends on what disability rating you receive from your Doctor after reaching maximum medical improvement and depends on whether the disability is in reference to the whole body or a particular body part or if the injury is catastrophic. In short, you need to hire a Workers Compensation lawyer or you will end up paying more than the 25% contingency fee a Workers Compensation lawyer would receive on your income benefits and save you from jeopardizing social security benefits and medicare or medicaid eligibility in the future.
