All of our partners came from big law firms. We learned that to be big, you have to pay a lot of expenses. Multiple offices, TV advertising, a large staff to screen clients…who do you think pays for all that? You do. By being one case in a big machine of high volume. By having multiple lawyers handle your case, instead of one who really knows your case. By having fees deducted from your weekly check when you had a weekly check before you even hired your lawyer. Our small firm will provide you with one lawyer who specializes in workers’ compensation, and our size allows us to control expenses and provide you with truly free case management. We also maintain a modest caseload, not a high volume of cases, affording us the time to talk to you and travel to you.
Every personal injury firm offers free consultations. That is how they get you to sign the contingent fee agreement. But how and when will they charge fees in a workers’ compensation case? If you look at a firm that handles all personal injuries, including workers’ compensation, you need to understand that workers’ compensation fees are different than the fees in a general accident case. In workers’ compensation, there are two kinds of cases. First, there is a case where you have been denied weekly benefits and need a lawyer to get you workers’ compensation. Are you being advised that it will take time to get your benefits? Are you being asked to reimburse the lawyer for costs such as medical records or doctor testimony? Is the lawyer telling you that there are alternative benefit sources to provide you with weekly pay, even if it means lowering the attorney fee? If you have been denied, meet with us. We will review our contingent agreement with you and leave you with a copy and an envelope. No arm twisting. Then go ahead and meet with other lawyers. We are confident that when you compare, you’ll be hiring us. The second kind of case is when you are on workers’ compensation already. You are already getting a weekly check. Does the contingent fee provide for a deduction from your weekly check if the lawyer “files” for a late check penalty, or to review the injury description, or to require an IME be closer to home? Most workers’ compensation lawyers will charge a fee on your weekly check. At My Comp Lawyers, we handle all those matters, and much more, as part of our free case management. We don’t start a fight in order to charge a fee. There is a big difference!
John, Joe and Steve are all certified workers’ compensation specialists. One of them will be your lawyer. When you call during the day, your lawyer will return your call the same day. When you call after hours, you don’t get left with an answering service. You are directed to the cell phone of one of our partners who will return your call immediately, and get you the help you need. A medical crisis, unpaid bill, or late check does not always occur between 9-5. How accessible is your lawyer? Do they “trust” you with their cell phone? Think about it.
