How to find the best Michigan workers compensation lawyer and the questions you need to ask.
Attorney advertising is everywhere these days! Television commercials, buses, and billboards. Many people feel overwhelmed and they do not know where to turn for help.
It gets even more confusing when the attorney you call is out of state or refers you to another attorney to handle the case.
If you are looking to hire a workers compensation lawyer, here are the questions that you need to ask!
We recommend that you select an attorney who has focused his or her practice on Michigan workers compensation law. These cases can be very complicated and you don’t want an attorney who is just looking to make a quick buck.
Ask the attorney how many years he or she has been practicing law. Find out how many workers compensation cases are handled each year. Most importantly find out if the attorney you are speaking with will actually be working on your case.
What will I be charged
You should not be charged anything to speak with a workers compensation lawyer. These cases are handled on contingency. You only owe a fee if you are successful with your case. No win no fee.
The maximum attorney fee on some settlements is only 10%. Watch out for attorneys who want you to pay 1/3 of your recovery! This indicates they do not have much experience with workers compensation.
