Robert Golan, PC of Golan & Masiakos, releases a new tip sheet for clients seeking the services of a worker’s compensation attorney before hiring one.
Plainview, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/02/2017 -- Robert Golan, PC of Golan & Masiakos, provides a tip sheet for the questions to ask a worker's compensation attorney during a free consultation. This consultation provides a chance to ask questions about a possible case and learn which lawyer is right for the case. This tip sheet provides four questions to ask during a legal consultation to help find the right workers compensation lawyer for a case.
What are the fees?
Most Queens workers' compensation attorneys are paid through a contingency fee. This fee depends on state laws, the lawyer, and the complexity of the case. In the state of New York, the client typically pays the lawyer 10 to 20 percent of the final settlement. Be wary of attorneys charging a much higher or much lower percentage. Those asking for more may be trying take more than their due, while those asking for less may not be qualified to handle the case.
Has this lawyer worked on workers' compensation cases before?
Not every lawyer will be a good fit for the case. Make sure to choose an attorney with significant experience working on workers' compensation cases.
How many other cases is the attorney working on?
Many attorneys do not take on an appropriate caseload. Some take on too many cases at once and neglect to spend enough time on any of them. Others take on too many cases and wait to file your case while they finish up others. Or, they may farm out other cases to inexperienced attorneys at the firm. At the case evaluation, make sure that the attorney will start work on the case right away, and that the attorney will be the one working on it.
What is the case worth?
A lawyer with experience in cases similar to yours will be able to provide a ranged estimate of what the case may be worth. Be wary of attorneys who guarantee a particular number or provide a number that seems unrealistically high.
