Steps to Follow When Evaluating a Workers’ Compensation Attorney

  1. Conduct Thorough Research: Before deciding on a workers’ compensation lawyer, research thoroughly. Look for attorneys with a strong background in workers’ compensation cases in Nebraska.

  2. Initial Contact: Make a call to the law office and insist on speaking directly with an attorney. Discuss the specifics of your accident and injury to gauge their understanding and approach.

  3. Assess Communication: During your conversation, evaluate how the lawyer communicates. Are they attentive, clear, and informative? Good communication is key in legal representation.

  4. Inquire About the Process: Ask detailed questions about the workers’ compensation process. A competent attorney should be able to explain the steps and strategies involved in your case.

  5. Determine Commitment: Ascertain if the lawyer is genuinely interested in your case and understands the nuances of Nebraska’s workers’ compensation laws. Their commitment to your case is crucial.

  6. Evaluate Case Handling: Find out if the attorney is prepared to handle your case from start to finish, including the willingness to go to trial if necessary.

  7. Experience Matters: Consider the lawyer’s experience in representing injured workers in Nebraska. Experience can greatly influence the outcome of your case.

  8. Review Past Successes: Look into the lawyer’s track record of handling workers’ compensation claims, including court victories and settlements.

  9. Understand Fee Structure: Ensure you are clear about the attorney’s fee structure. Many workers’ comp attorneys work on a contingency basis, meaning they only get paid if you win your case.

  10. Know Your Rights: If you face issues like delayed checks or denied medical treatment, a competent attorney should be able to advise you effectively on your rights and the next steps.

  11. No Obligation Consultation: Opt for attorneys who offer a free, no-obligation consultation. This gives you a risk-free opportunity to evaluate their suitability for your case.
