Once you have made the wise decision to hire a lawyer to help you with your Workers’ Compensation case, the next big question is how to hire the RIGHT lawyer.
Not all lawyers or law firms are the same!
As with any profession, there are good lawyers and lawyers that are not so good. You have a tremendous amount at stake if you have been hurt on the job. It’s your life and your livelihood, and you need to make sure that you hire a lawyer who understands how important your case is and will treat it and you with the respect you deserve.
Unfortunately, there are many law firms that take an assembly-line approach to their cases, treating them all the same, doing the least amount of work possible, and trying to settle the case as quickly as possible, even if it means settling the claim for less than it is truly worth. If they cannot settle the case quickly, they may withdraw so that the injured worker is forced to try and scramble to find another lawyer to take their case to trial. You should avoid these kinds of firms.
Instead, look for a firm that will take your case and agree to pursue it from start to finish, including a hearing, if necessary. You should look for a firm that will treat you with respect, and take the personal time necessary to answer your questions, return your phone calls, emails, and keep you apprised of the progress in your case.
If you are considering hiring a specific firm, ask your friends and family about them.
If they had a positive experience with the firm, there is a good chance you will too. It is also a good idea to reach out to a potential law firm and ask them to send you materials or go online and read about the firm. Make an appointment to meet with them in person or talk with them over the phone and ask them all the questions that you have. I welcome questions from potential clients because I believe in helping people, and I want clients to feel sure that they have made the right decision by hiring my work injury law firm to represent them.
Here is a list of questions to ask a work injury law firm before you make the important decision to hire them.
