What are key questions I should ask my workers comp lawyer?

If you’ve suffered from a work-related illness or injury, you should speak to a lawyer that specializes in workers’ compensation. Workers’ comp regulations are very complex, and an experienced attorney will help you with your claim. Here are some important questions you should ask your lawyer.

How Does Workers’ Comp Claim Work?

Employers pay for workers’ compensation insurance, and the insurance company reviews your claim.  Workers’ comp is the oldest insurance program in the U.S. Most programs are run by states, and every state has different regulations. Employers are usually required to have workers’ comp insurance.

Do I Have a Good Workers Comp Case?

Ask your attorney what the strengths and weaknesses of your case are and what you should do to increase your chances of being compensated. You could get payment for your medical expenses even if you don’t miss work because of your illness or injury.

What About Attorney Fees?

Your first consultation with a workers’ comp lawyer is usually free, and most attorneys work on contingency. That means they’ll take part of the money you get from your claim as payment. However, you may need to pay for expenses like expert witnesses, copying, or additional medical exams. Some lawyers will waive these fees even if you lose your case.
