How to choose a workers’ compensation attorney
CHOOSING A GEORGIA WORKERS’ COMPENSATION ATTORNEY
Workers’ compensation is a complex area of law where an injured worker cannot afford to take chances on an attorney who divides his or her time and expertise by practicing in other unrelated legal areas. If you suffer a work-related injury, you need a specialist, not someone who dabbles in helping injured workers address their treatment and income benefit concerns.
At the law office of Sadow & Froy, we do one thing only — represent clients who are injured on the job. While we can and frequently do make referrals for our clients to other specialists if they need assistance in different areas of the law, workers’ compensation (commonly known as “work comp”) is our area of expertise. For over three decades we have been helping a wide range of people hurt on their jobs obtain the workers’ compensation benefits they are entitled to receive for workplace injuries. Contact us to learn how we can help you.
WHAT MAKES A GOOD WORKERS’ COMPENSATION LAWYER?
No injured worker wants to entrust his or her workers’ compensation case to the hands of an attorney who has not handled claims like theirs before. Before you make a mistake that compromises your health and ability to provide for your family, consider these important factors when choosing the right attorney to represent you:
- Hire a specialist who has handled hundreds of workers’ compensation cases
- Choose an attorney with more than 36 Years of experience
- Find out how other workers’ compensation lawyers rate the attorney who you are considering
- Find out if the attorney you meet with regularly speaks at seminars that teach other lawyers about workers’ compensation law
- Check for involvement in workers’ compensation-related legal groups
- See if the attorney offers useful insight to you at the initial meeting about how your case should be handled
