Michigan workers comp attorney explains how to find experienced and knowledgeable legal representation for your work injury claim.
Our workers comp law firm gets calls from people all around the country. Many have never had an injury at work and don’t know where to turn for help. We frequently hear about claims adjusters not returning telephone calls and employers ignoring the problem.
Unfortunately, we cannot help every person who calls our office. The reason for this is because workers comp law is state specific. This means that every state has its own version of workers comp with different benefits, rules, and procedures.
We understand the worry and stress that comes with an on-the-job injury. It seems like even simple questions cannot be answered. Here are three ways to find a qualified workers comp attorney in your state.

It is important to find an attorney who devotes his or her practice to workers comp exclusively. This area of the law can be difficult and mistakes are easily made. Don’t take chances with your benefits.
Find an attorney who understands the issues and is familiar with the area where your case will be heard. An experienced workers comp attorney will be happy to discuss his or her qualifications with you.
WILG Attorney Search
The Workers Injury Law & Advocacy Group (WILG) is a great resource for finding a qualified workers comp attorney. Their primary goal is to help attorneys and non-profit groups in advocating the rights of injured workers. But you can still use their website to search for attorney members by state.
If an attorney is a member of WILG, you can bet they have more than a passing interest in workers comp law. Find an attorney listed in your geographical area and see if they will give you a free case evaluation. Maybe call a few of the listings and see who you feel more comfortable with.
State Bar Associations
Every state has a bar association to regulate its attorneys. Most have referral services that can point you in the right direction. In Michigan, you can actually get an initial 30 minute consultation for just $20.00. However, workers comp cases are typically handled on contingency and you should not pay anything unless you are successful with your case.
