If you are injured at work, you want to know that you’ll be taken care of by your lawyer and medical team. The problem is that most people haven’t suffered a work injury, so they don’t know where to turn when one occurs. This can lead to choosing legal help that is not in your best interest, simply because you don’t know what you need. Today, we explain why you need to find a lawyer who specializes in workers’ compensation if you’ve suffered a work injury.
Specialization is Key
When it comes to choosing a lawyer for a legal issue, we explain it like this. When your car needs an oil change or new spark plugs, you’re probably fairly confident taking it to any repair shop to have the work completed, and you can usually trust the the service will be performed correctly, because it’s a basic issue. In the legal world, things like speeding tickets or disorderly conduct citations are things you can usually trust to any defense lawyer, because it’s entry level legal work. No matter which defense lawyer you go with, you’ll probably end up with the same or similar result.
Now, back to the car analogy. Let’s say you find out that you need a new timing belt, or your transmission needs work. For these issues, you’ll want to go to a dealership who specializes in that vehicle type. It might be a little more expensive, but you know that the work will be performed correctly, and that the people working on your car know exactly what they’re doing. A work injury is like a major issue in your vehicle, and it’s one that you should trust to a professional that specializes solely in that arena.
Why Choose A Specialized Workers’ Compensation Lawyer?
But why is it so important to trust your case to someone who specializes solely in workers compensation cases? Here’s just a few reasons:
Complex Cases – Each individual work injury case is unique and complex. No two shoulder injuries are the same, so you want to know that the workers’ compensation lawyer you’re working with understands how to read a doctor’s evaluation to appropriately come up with claim figures.
Complex Laws – Injuries can be complicated, but so too are the laws that govern workers’ compensation in Minnesota. You don’t want a general injury lawyer that has basic understanding of workers’ compensation, personal injuries or business liability, you want someone who knows all the intricacies of workers’ comp so they can best argue your case.
Maximize Your Compensation – This is a point we hammer home on the blog all the time. A specialized workers’ compensation attorney can ensure you get the maximum amount of money for your injury, which oftentimes more than offsets the cost of the attorney. A lawyer may cost $3,000, but if they can get you $10,000 when your company tried to get you to settle for $2,000, it’s well worth it!
