THE TRAITS YOU WANT IN A WORKERS' COMPENSATION LAWYER

The-Traits-You-Want-in-a-Workers-Compensation-Lawyer3.jpg

When you've been injured at work and it seems uncontested that your employer or a co-worker was at fault, there can be a tendency to try to handle the claim on your own. That's almost always a mistake, as the rules governing workers' compensation can get tricky in a hurry. You can also expect that your employer and the workers' compensation insurer will be represented by counsel at all hearings and proceedings.

But what should you look for in a workers' compensation attorney? How will you know that your lawyer is a good fit? Here are some recommendations.

LOOK FOR EXPERIENCE FIRST

The workers' compensation system has its own set of rules and practices. It's not a claim you want handled by someone who's never done it before. In fact, it's often the case that the more workers' compensation claims a prospective attorney has handled, the better it will be for you. Choose a lawyer who makes workers' compensation a significant component of his or her practice. If it takes up less than a quarter of his time, look for someone else.

MAKE CERTAIN YOUR ATTORNEY HAS COURTROOM EXPERIENCE

If your claim is initially denied (which happens a lot), your lawyer will need to argue on your behalf at one or more hearings. You need to know that your attorney has the skill, experience and knowledge to protect your rights in any proceeding.

CONFIRM THAT THE ATTORNEY HAS A PLAN

Ask your prospective lawyer to outline his or her strategy for obtaining workers' compensation benefits. If he or she doesn't have one, find another attorney.

ACCESSIBILITY IS IMPORTANT, TOO

There will likely be times when you have important questions, and you'll want accurate answers in a timely manner. Confirm that your prospective lawyer will be available when you need to talk.
