Finding the Right Colorado Work Injury Attorney

I've got a few names so where do I go from here?

Once you get a list of 3-5 attorneys, it's time to meet with them in-person and see which one will best serve your needs. Most attorneys do not charge for an initial consultation and if they do, you should avoid them.

When you meet with your prospective attorney, be sure to have all documentation related to your work injury and case. These items include police reports, medical records, wage information and any communication between you and the insurance company.

Helping your attorney by providing them with all the information you have is a critical component of making sure your case goes smoothly.

What kinds of questions should I ask the attorney?

During the interview, you will want to ask to specific questions about their experience.

Get answers to the following:

•  How long have you been practicing workers' compensation law?

•  How much of your practice is dedicated to work injury cases?

•  Do you represent plaintiffs or defendants?

•  If they're an attorney who currently represents defendants like an insurance company, you will want to scratch them off your list... their experience, mindset and interests are probably too closely linked to the same people you're trying to obtain benefits from.

•  However, if they have prior experience in representing insurance companies, it can prove to be a valuable benefit to your case. Since they've worked for the "other side," they probably have special insights into how to build the strongest case.

•  Who at the firm will handle the case? Will there be any other attorneys at the firm handling your case?

•  What's your record? What's your win/loss ratio and average amount of damages awarded?

Once you hire an attorney for your case, you're not done. Be sure you have a clear fee agreement in writing and stay in touch frequently.

Besides that, you should learn as much as you can about benefits, jurisdiction, reporting an injury and what happens if you run into problems obtaining your workers' compensation benefits.

The following chapters contain this along with information on how you can help your attorney effectively represent you. Providing them with all of the information you can again be quite helpful in moving your case along quickly.

"The Babcock Law Firm exceeded my expectations. I would not have received the special medical treatment I required if it weren't for Mack's resources and persistence, I would not have known how to handle unexpected complications if it weren't for Jan's professionalism and deliberateness, and I wouldn't have understood my rights or how to defend them if it weren't for the firm's thoroughness, thoughtfulness, and top-notch expertise. I am so grateful for their support through such a traumatic and overwhelming event."
