Is My Attorney Required To Represent Me If I Want To File An Appeal

In general, a workers’ compensation attorney is not required to represent you if you want to file an appeal.  If your attorney agreed to represent you on appeal in your attorney fee contract, however, he or she likely is or will be required to represent you if you choose to appeal.

If your attorney is not required to represent you on appeal, we strongly recommend that you consult with another workers’ compensation attorney without delay.  In addition to the substantive issues for appeal, there are certain procedural rules and time deadlines that must be satisfied in order to appeal a decision; for this reason, time is of the essence.
