There aren't any legal requirements stating that a claimant must have an attorney represent them, but having the legal guidance and advice that a lawyer provides can be critical in getting the compensation a victim needs. Attorneys can provide much-needed assistance throughout the process, from working on paperwork and meeting crucial deadlines to providing representation in hearings and other formal meetings. Considering how complex these cases can become, a claimant may want to think carefully about whether they choose to proceed with or without the experience and knowledge a professional can provide.
