New clients often ask us about the value of their workers’ comp cases. The reality is, every case and client is unique, so a lawyer can’t assign a value without investigating several key factors.
How much your case is worth depends on the specific details of your case, including:
– Your job duties
– Your average weekly pay
– The circumstances of your injury or illness
– Your ability to return to work
– The cost of ongoing authorized medical care
You should be very cautious of any lawyer who promises a specific sum of money. No one can guarantee you a specific sum of money. However, hiring a dedicated workers’ comp attorney will give you a much better chance of obtaining the benefits that you deserve. A good workers’ comp attorney will communicate with the insurer on your behalf, gather medical records, and gather the evidence you will need to maximize the chances of a great outcome.
