Being injured on the job is a bad enough experience. You could find yourself unable to return to work for extended periods of time and you might have to endure pain from your injuries as well. Adding to the stress of a work-related injury is that workers compensation laws are often complex and highly specialized. To ensure that you are able to navigate your way through the compensation process effectively, it could be a good idea to work with a workers compensation attorney.

3 Things to Keep in Mind When Looking for an Attorney

It isn't always easy to discern whether a particular attorney is an expert or is merely dabbling in workers compensation representation. The most important aspects of any quality attorney such as years of experience, knowledge depth, and trustworthiness are nearly impossible to identify by ads alone. So what can you do to make sure your attorney is up to snuff?

  • Personal recommendations: Word-of-mouth is one of the primary ways attorney's get their names out to potential clients. A flashy advertisement might look good on T.V. or in a magazine, but your friends, neighbors, family, and colleagues are people you can trust.
  • Official channels like the state and local bar associations may be open to providing referrals. You are far more likely to find a reputable attorney by using an equally reputable source.
  • Look at the law firm's website. Do they emphasize worker's compensation expertise? Are there testimonials or any evidence of a successful track record? In other words, is there any indication that the attorney has a niche or are they trying to be everything to everyone? It isn't recommended that you base your decision solely on a web search, but the internet can be an important tool in your search.
