One of the main differences between us and other law firms is that we are very well-known in the industry. We are familiar with the judges; we know the insurance companies; we know the adjusters; and we know the defense attorneys.
We’ve been doing this for over twenty years, after all. More importantly, however, when you call us, we’re there. We don’t disappear on you. It doesn’t take us days or weeks to get back to you.
If we’re not available, we’ll call you back within 24 hours. We truly care, and we truly try to help you with whatever problems you have.
Let’s say my client receives a script for an MRI from the doctor. They’ll then call me personally, tell me about it, and email or fax me the script for the MRI. This is what I need to speak to the insurance company and the defense attorney immediately.
If I do not get a response that day, I will file the lawsuit the following day to get my client to that MRI. Therefore, I don’t wait for the dust to settle. If you need me, I’m there.
What are the Warning Signs or Red Flags When Hiring an Attorney for a Workers’ Compensation Case?
The main warning sign to watch out for is people not answering your questions, rushing you in, and rushing you out.
A lot of times, you can tell a lot about a law office by how long you have to wait on the phone before speaking to your actual attorney. If you don’t get a warm, fuzzy feeling from them, I would tell you not to sign up. You’re going to be with the law firm for a period of time. You’re going to need things from them.
You must be able to communicate with that law firm and have a partnership with them.
It’s important that they are able to talk to you with simple language, not in legal mumbo-jumbo. This way, you know exactly what is going on. You must be able to have a clear understanding of exactly what you’re entitled to under the law.
When a client signs up with us, I have a book that I’ve written about workers’ compensation law. This explains it in an easy-to-read format that I give to every client that asks.
