Have you suffered an injury at work and are now wondering about your rights to your medical payments and any future disabilities resulting from your injuries? If so, it may be time to contact the personal injury law firm in your city. Each major city phone book will have multiple records for these types of attorneys. Here we will cover some tips for contacting a lawyer to deal with this situation.
No matter how minor the injury is now, it is essential to understand that things like an injury can have long-term and lasting repercussions on an individual’s health and well-being. Even in the case of minor accidents at work, there must be a record of the doctor’s visit. Although workers’ compensation insurance usually covers these injuries, you should know that there are maximum restrictions for this insurance. If there is a possibility of long-term pain or suffering resulting from an injury at work, contact a personal injury law firm.
As previously mentioned, these lawyers can be contacted through the Yellow Pages in the phone book. There is no fee for an initial consultation. If the lawyer decides to consider your case, you will not be out of pocket. The lawyer assumes all responsibility until the case is won. At that time, according to the agreement you signed when the lawyer took over your case, the lawyer will receive a percentage of the damages. This compensation is usually between 30 and 60% of what is earned in the case. Because this can be a large sum that results in tens and sometimes hundreds of thousands of dollars for a lawyer, these cases are in high demand by many law firms.
Before you get hired by a personal injury law firm, do some research on the company’s lawyers. You can contact the bar association in your state and find out how many complaints and grievances have been filed against the injury law firm, as well as the lawyers who work for the firm. Of course, any lawyer who practices law for any length of time will receive several complaints against him. This is normal and expected due to the nature of their business. However, suppose you see a persistent pattern and many complaints against a particular returning company. In that case, this could be an indication that you should do more research or find another lawyer.
Being hurt at work is something none of us look forward to. But if you have an experienced and qualified law firm with you during the litigation process, you will secure your rights and collect as much compensation as possible.
