How To Prepare For Your First Meeting With A Workers’ Compensation Lawyer
The more information you can provide us during the first meeting, the better we will be able to evaluate your workers’ compensation claim and outline your options for moving forward.
First, have as many details as possible about the incident that led to the work-related injury or illness. That includes specific location, date and time, and names of any witnesses. That also includes any information about your diagnosis and treatment plan. Recording this sort of information in a notebook can prove invaluable, and we highly recommend it. Take note of anything that happens in relation to the work injury or illness.
If you were given any paperwork, either by your employer after reporting the incident or by your medical provider, please bring that as well. If you have already applied for workers’ compensation benefits and have been denied, or you were receiving benefits and have been cut off, please bring any letters you have received about the status of your claim or benefits.
Bring a list of questions. These might be questions you want to ask to learn about your attorney’s experience. They might also be questions you have about what you have experienced so far or questions about how the workers’ compensation process will unfold moving forward.
What To Expect From Your Lawyer At Your Free Consultation
We pride ourselves on our attentiveness, the personal care we provide and the attention to detail we bring to these matters. That starts on day one. Count on us to listen to your story, review any documentation you bring and give you a careful case assessment. Depending on the nature of the workers’ compensation matter, we may need to investigate further before we can offer guidance on next steps, but we will give you as much information as possible during this first meeting about what may happen next and what your options are. We will also let you ask any questions you may have. Expect honest, clear answers from us. We have been handling these cases for more than two decades, so you can be confident in the answers we provide.
When you leave this meeting, we want you to feel educated about workers’ compensation law, the process for getting benefits and your options. We want you to have peace of mind that this is being taken care of and your case is in good hands.
