Our checklist of what to bring to your first meeting with a Michigan workers compensation lawyer.

Wednesday’s blog answered the top six questions that our clients want to know at the initial client meeting. Here is a checklist that you can use to prepare for your first meeting with a workers compensation lawyer.

Remember that every case is different and must be evaluated on its own merits. It is important to have a free consultation so that the issues in your particular case can be discussed. Don’t rely on stories from friends and relatives because it rarely applies to your situation.

The purpose of the consultation is so that you can learn about your legal rights and develop a strategy to protect your benefits. You will never be charged a fee to discuss your case and all advice is confidential.
