I have been told getting a lawyer is the best thing to do. What does one do if the company offers to assign me a lawyer they already have on retainer?
The Companies Attorney will not have your best interest in mind. I would retain my own Attorney. Most companies have a permanent Attorney for cases such as this. DO NOT SIGN ANYTHING, Until you speak with your own Attorney.
Tell them you have your own lawyer, thank you very much.
See a solicitor and don't waste your time with a bunch of amateurs on here who can say they have, x, qulifications, and you have no way of checking.
Call a lawyer! Workers Comp cases can get really messy and its best to know all your rights from the get go.
I think knowing your rights is a very good idea. Do you think I should pick the cheapest accredited lawyer I can find? Or should I shop around for a lawyer? I've heard many lawyers take between 25-40% of any money you receive from a Workers Comp case
Almost wanted to say check Angie's list. I honestly do not know. If you have a lawyer, who you've worked with on other legal matters you might ask them to suggest one.
Document everything! Witnesses, photos, doctor's names, dates of treatments, EVERYTHING. Overwhelm them with paper proof of injury and pain and suffering and well, everything!
