When considering hiring an attorney, there are a few important things to look for. Experience is probably one of the most important, as this speaks many more volumes than sheer education alone. Having experience means knowing how to handle curveballs in cases and difficult circumstances that may arise. Skill and patience are also important attributes to look for in a good lawyer. When hiring a good lawyer for your workers’ compensation case, there should be nothing but good things to expect.
As noted, having a good workers’ comp lawyer should lead you to expect the case itself to be easier. Your attorney will be able to provide guidance as to what your next steps should be, as well as handle much of the paperwork and technical document processing that arises. This is beneficial to you as an injured employee because it allows you to focus on recovery rather than winning a legal battle.
Secondly, you should expect that a good workers’ lawyer will be aggressive in fighting against the employer’s insurance company. When you hire an attorney, you do so to help you win the case, not to have the lawyer sit by and let it happen. Therefore, a good lawyer will fight both for and with you to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.
