How long have you been practicing workers’ compensation law?
Workers’ compensation law is highly complex and varies from state to state. Many people prefer to work with experienced lawyers who have handled many workers’ compensation claims before. Also consider asking how much of his or her practice is dedicated to this area of the law.
Why do you practice law?
Your lawyer should make you feel comfortable and taken care of. Pay attention to the attorney’s personality and style to ensure they are a good fit for you and your case.
Have you handled many cases like mine?
Experience isn’t just about how many years a lawyer has been practicing. It’s also about what types of cases he or she has handled before – and what the results were. If a lawyer has never handled a case involving injuries like yours, it may be wise to look at some other options.
How often do you settle claims?
This can help you determine if an attorney is confident taking a case to trial. If an attorney says he or she settles all of his or her cases, outside of court, consider whether you are comfortable with that. Are you also against the idea of going to trial, or do you want an attorney who is willing to fight for you no matter where your case goes?
