What Makes a Great Workers' Comp Attorney?

If you have been injured at work, you may be facing lost wages and medical bills and also be entitled to a settlement.


What Makes a Great Workers' Comp Attorney?

We recommend workers’ compensation attorneys based on several factors, many of which take into account your specific needs and wants. Here are some guidelines we rely on in making our referrals.

A focused practice. If an attorney has a focused practice, meaning that they practice only one or two types of law, we believe it gives them an advantage. We generally recommend attorneys who focus solely on work injury law. This means that they handle workers’ compensation issues every day and spend a lot of time in front of the arbitrators and talking to insurance companies.

Years of experience. In addition to a focused practice, we look for attorneys who have an established practice. An attorney with years of experience will have seen more cases, handled more clients and negotiated more settlements than someone new to the profession.

Good communication skills. Not only should your attorney return your phone calls and emails promptly, but they should communicate well. If you have a question, no matter how basic it might seem to them, they should take the time to explain the law without making you feel silly or stupid for asking. Your attorney also should keep you up to date on any changes or progress in your case.

A solid reputation. We recommend attorneys who have a reputation for pursuing legitimate claims. If your attorney is known for taking on cases that don’t have merit, they probably won’t have the respect or trust necessary to achieve the best outcome. Also, we recommend attorneys who have a reputation among insurance companies for having a lot of expertise and fighting for their clients.

Doing what’s best for you. You want an attorney who will only advise you to settle your case if it’s truly in your best interest. Settlement is often in the attorney’s best interest because they will earn a fee more quickly and with more certainty, and they won’t have to go through all the work of a trial. An attorney who puts these considerations ahead of what is best for you is not a great attorney in our opinion.

There’s no such thing as the best attorney. Rather, there are excellent attorneys out there and we help you pick the best one for your situation.

fight the denial

An experienced work injury attorney can help you navigate the system and will know the best approach to take if your benefits are denied. The insurance company will deny your claim if they can. Sometimes, you have to fight to get your medical bills covered, or to be declared permanently disabled. An attorney will protect your interests, with the goal of getting you full benefits.

injury experience

When hiring a workers’ compensation attorney, we recommend looking for someone who focuses their practice on helping injured workers. If possible, look for an attorney who has experience with your particular type of injury. Other important things to look for: many years of experience, a good reputation among judges and other attorneys, great customer service, and a history of past success in getting benefits for injured workers.
