What Should You Look For In A Kansas City Workers’ Compensation Attorney?
1. Look for an attorney who has a track record in workers’ compensation settlements. Because workers’ compensation law is controlled by a special state statute, it is very important the attorney handling your claim has had extensive experience in workers’ compensation cases.
2. Look for an attorney who can answer your questions. Ask the attorney for specific information about other similar cases he or she has handled. As well, ask the attorney about his or her experience with the medical issues expected in the claim for permanent partial disability awards.
3. Look for an attorney who can devote his or her full professional abilities and resources to the claim. When you take into account the special medical experts required in a claim for workers’ compensation benefits, you need an attorney who will make your case a priority.
4. Look for an attorney who can handle the details of your claim. For instance, an injured worker may be entitled to special medical treatment or expense reimbursements and your attorney needs to make sure you are receiving all benefits available under the state law.
5. Finally, look for an attorney who has a very good staff of assistants and paralegals. This can make a world of difference in making sure the case is constantly moving forward.
