Finding a Worker's Compensation Lawyer with Peace of Mind

Apr 17, 2008
The compensation system in America, as well as most civilized nations, has a system designed to protect businesses and their employee counterparts. Although there are always codes and laws to safeguard the work staff, accidents and thoughtless actions in the work environment do indeed result in legitimate compensation insurance claims. This article will touch on some points, from an injured person's point of view, how to go about finding information and legal representation.

Scenario of a Claim File and a Lawyer Search

Most claims are filed from workers who are typically working in a semi -risky environment. We'll see most of them come from jobs where they are on their feet most of the time and are carrying large loads of whatever or interfacing potentially dangerous tools. That is why, if you go and visit many of the worker's union houses or web sites, you'll see resources for compensation filers.

Often works have a tendency to shy away from starting a claim with their employer. They often think that there is such a stigma against compensation filers and that the employer will potentially fire them for this. This is unfounded, and an act of retribution that is solely on the basis of filing a compensation claim is against your personal rights and freedoms. In fact, compensation insurance is created to cover those on the job injuries mainly to avoid the litigation process. It's a safety valve to offer the injured time and money for recovery rather than to hash it out in court.

It's always good to find a lawyer just to make sure that all the I's are dotted so to speak. And if there is some kind of further damages required the lawyer can often help arrange a deal with the company insurance group. Look to your local state bar association for reputable lawyers, or if you've found one, make sure they are in good standing with that association.

For instance if you are in PA and search online or are asking about a good lawyer, you may want to enter or ask for a Pennsylvania workers compensation lawyer. They would be your best resource for specific laws within the state (PA was just an example of such).

A few more points to ask and ponder when looking for a compensation lawyer is:
- The attorney should represent employees rather than employers as a specialty
- Do they listen well while discussing your situation
- Do they explain the law well enough for you to understand
- Check for publicity or good track record (try Googling their name)
