Our video topic for today is do I have to speak with a defense attorney if they contact me on the phone?
Well, if you’re represented by counsel you should not be contacted at all by a defense attorney. However, if you are attempting to represent yourself in a workers’ compensation claim and have filed a hearing, the equivalent of litigation in workers’ compensation, you are required to deal with the defense attorney’s office in answering discovery and/or setting up a deposition, possibly both, and there will be other issues that you need to discuss with the attorney.
Therefore it is always recommended that you speak to a Georgia workers’ compensation attorney prior to filing any litigation to find out what your rights are and to determine what your best course of action is under the law.
We hope that you found this information helpful and we hope that you will come check out our other videos. If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call. Thank you.
