Do you know why injured workers hire attorneys? A recent study in 11 states showed that the top reasons that workers compensation claimants hire an attorney is because of workplace trust, fear of claim denial and severity of injury. About 50 percent of injured workers in Maryland hired an attorney while only 23 percent of injured workers in Florida hired an attorney. The study was conducted by the Workers Compensation Research Institute in 2012. http://www.claimsjournal.com/news/national/2012/05/17/207003.htm
