What to expect in your free consultation with a workers’ compensation lawyer?

A free consultation with a workers’ compensation lawyer serves two purposes. First, it is a chance for the attorney to get to know you and your situation so that they can get a better idea of how the case may play out. Second, it allows you to ask any questions about the workers’ compensation process and what you should expect throughout the process.

Your lawyer will want to know about your job and the accident that caused your injuries. You should expect a workers’ comp lawyer will ask you questions about the following:

Employment information – How long you had worked at your current position when you started and your hourly wage or salary. If you have any other information about your job that you feel is important, you should share it with your attorney. For example, if several other workers were injured in similar accidents.

Accident information – Your workers’ comp lawyer will want to know about the accident. The best place to start is by writing down your version of how the accident happened. You should also let your lawyer know who you first notified of your injury and provide a copy of the email or letter. If you have photographs of your injuries, bring them with you. And if anyone else witnessed the accident resulting in your injuries, bring along their name and contact info.

Medical treatment information – Finally, your lawyer will ask you about your injuries and the medical treatment you received. Be prepared to explain where you went for treatment and, if possible, the name of the doctor who treated you. If the doctor’s office or hospital gave you any medical records, be sure to take these with you to the free consultation. If you have any medical bills related to your treatment, your attorney will want a copy of them.

The other important purpose of a free consultation is that it gives you the chance to ask questions about the process.
