When you’ve been hurt on the job, you’ll likely need to file for workers’ compensation in order to get funds for your medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses associated with your injury. Unfortunately, workers' compensation insurers (and employers who use them) aren’t always the most cooperative organizations, and they will try to pay out as little as possible. If you want to ensure you get all the funds you need to cover your accident, enlisting the help of a San Antonio worker's compensation attorney is your best bet.
A San Antonio workers compensation attorney can fight for your rights and ensure you’re not taken advantage of by insurers or your employer. Want to find the best workers comp attorney for your case? Follow these tips:
- Meet them face to face. Always schedule a face-to-face meeting before deciding on an attorney. See if your personalities mesh, and make sure they’re experienced and professional enough to handle your case.
- Ask them to estimate the worth of your case. Ask any attorney you’re considering to give you an accurate estimate of your case’s worth. This will show that 1) they’ve done their research and 2) they’re experienced enough to know what your case (and others like it) can garner.
- Learn about their experience – specifically as it relates to workers comp. Have the attorney discuss his or her experience in workers comp in depth. How long have they been handling these kinds of cases? Are they board-certified? The more experienced they are, the better your case will fare.
- Do your research. Check their website, look at online reviews, research them on lawyer rating sites, and make sure you’re choosing an attorney who’s experienced and can handle the job.
