Can You Change Your Workers’ Comp Lawyer Mid-Case?
Understanding the Workers’ Compensation Legal Process
Choosing the right attorney for your case is one of the most crucial steps in the process of filing your workers’ compensation claim or pursuing further legal action after being injured on the job. Working with the right attorney for your specific situation gives you the best chance of having the most desired outcome.
Given how critical this choice is, you always have the option to change your attorney mid-case. There is no legal backlash for doing so, but you will need to sign a document stating that you no longer wish to work with your previous attorney.
Questions to Ask Your New Attorney
If you are in the process of looking for a new attorney to represent you, have a list of questions in mind during your consultation to determine if they’re the right fit. Here are a couple of great ones to ask:
- What is your track record of working on workers’ compensation cases?
- Who will be my main point of contact: the attorney, case manager, paralegal, or someone else in the firm?
- What can I expect from working with your team?
- How often do you see cases like mine?
- What are your fees?
- Do I need to have gone to the doctor a certain number of times before filing a claim?
Ultimately, the initial consultation is as much for you to get to know the team handling your case as it is about them learning the facts.
