How to choose a workers comp lawyer

Why choosing the right workers comp lawyer can make all the difference in your case.

Attorney advertising is all over the place with television commercials, billboards, and city buses. Many people feel overwhelmed and don’t know how to choose a workers comp lawyer.

It gets even more confusing when the attorney you think will handle the case actually refers you to another person. Choosing a workers comp lawyer could be the best or worst decision you make.

You need someone who is experienced and will be on your side every step of the way. Here are some questions you should ask before signing any fee agreement.

Experience matters

We recommend that you select a lawyer who has devoted his or her practice to workers comp. Ask how many cases are handled each year and what kind of results are obtained.

You don’t want a lawyer who is just looking to make a quick buck at your expense. Ask what the strategy will be regarding your case. Is settlement or trial the best option?

Make sure the lawyer is willing to take your case to trial if necessary. This should include advancing all costs of litigation.

Personal relationships are important

It is important that you trust and have confidence in your workers comp lawyer. Will he or she take the time to really discuss your problems?

You must come up with a plan for your future. Maybe this means you settle your case and get retrained for a new career. A good lawyer can help you figure out these tough decisions.
