It is nearly impossible to go a single day without seeing an overly-dramatic personal injury lawyer on TV or one of their large billboards on the side of the highway peddling “Justice”. The sad reality is that some lawyers are more focused on their own self-promotion than on your potentially life-altering decision in choosing a lawyer to represent you in your workers’ compensation claim. The lawyer you choose should represent your best interests, working to make the most of the benefits you are entitled to after the injury you have suffered.
Unfortunately, there are lawyers out there who proclaim to be “experts” in New Jersey Workers’ Compensation claims – but do not even appear in the New Jersey Division of Workers’ Compensation on a regular basis. Sometimes, the lawyer you think you are hiring might not even be licensed in New Jersey, but rather they refer your case to another law firm only to collect a referral fee.
Before you choose an attorney for your workers’ compensation claim, you need to ask yourself what you really need to protect yourself. Here are a few questions to consider:
