Does it seem that your case is dragging on, are you just not sure about the advice you are getting in your workers’ compensation case. Is it possible for you to get a second opinion without jeopardizing your case? Hi, I’m Chris Hudson, come join me while I share this information.
Under the rules of professional ethics, attorneys are allowed to meet with clients for confidential second opinions. Keep in mind, that many attorneys advertise that they handle workers’ compensation cases, but I know of only a few attorneys in my geographical area that regularly practice in this area of the law. Workers’ Compensation is a complex area of law and regulations, and you don’t want an attorney who is using your case as his on the job training.
If you suspect that your lawyer does not have a firm grasp on this area of the law, get a second opinion. You can tell the second opinion lawyer that you want it to be confidential. I’ve had cases where I have told prospective clients that they have a great attorney and they should stick with him or her. But in any event, if you have been injured on the job, your attorney should be able to clearly explain the workers compensation system, give you a road map on how your case should proceed, and you should be comfortable that he or she is diligently working your case.
