How To Hire A Florida Worker’s Compensation Attorney

When you’ve been injured in an accident on the job, you will quickly become overwhelmed by the number of worker’s compensation attorneys in Florida. With so many available options, it can be hard to determine which attorney will be the best for representing your interests. Here is an easy guide to picking the best worker’s compensation attorney in Florida:

1. Look For Credentials

Before hiring any attorney, you want to make sure that they are registered with the Florida Bar Association. The Florida Bar Association is a comprehensive list of all the attorneys that are legally allowed to practice law in the state of Florida. It also contains a list of some of their credentials and any marks against their record. You can search any attorney easily at their website directory located here.

2. Look For Experience in Florida

Attorneys that have years of experience representing clients in Florida usually know best how to navigate the complex legal system of our state. Worker’s Compensation is especially complex because there are more parties involved than in other accident claims, so you need an attorney who has represented people like you before.

3. Look For Specialization

Worker’s compensation law is different than other forms of accident injury law. Though most accident injury attorneys will take on a worker’s compensation claim, you really want someone who has specialized in worker’s compensation law. You can usually find this information out on their website under attorney biographies or you can simply ask them during the consultation. In a good law firm, one attorney may refer you to another whose specialization better fits your particular claim needs.

4. Look For Professional Associations

Good attorneys are usually members of professional organizations. Professional organizations help attorneys keep up to date on the changing dynamics of the law and give them the tools, resources, and network needed to take on any big case. Professional organizations also lend credibility to worker’s compensation attorneys. So check with your potential attorney to see what organizations they are involved in. You can also take this time ask them if they’ve won any awards.

5. Look For Positive Reviews

Fortunately there are tons of reviews readily available online nowadays. You can search Google, Yelp, and even their social media accounts to see what other clients have said about them. If you are wary about trusting online reviews, ask your potential attorney about prior clients and for a list of references.

6. Look For Accessibility

Your attorney works for you. A good attorney will always be available to answer any questions you have about the process and can help give you important tips to take to keep you protected during the claims process. If you reach out to your attorney repeatedly and they don’t respond, it may be time to look for someone else to represent you.

7. Ask About Fees

Fees can be a difficult conversation for most people. However, before hiring any attorney you need to make sure that they aren’t charging you an unfair rate. A good attorney will clearly lay out the fees associated with your case and will offer competitive pricing. They will be direct and will not dodge any of your questions. So when interviewing attorneys make sure that you bring up this topic of discussion, even though it can be a bit difficult.
