Finding an Attorney
How do you find a qualified workers compensation attorney? First of all, Iowa attorney advertising rules currently allow anyone to say they are a workers compensation attorney, even if they've never handled a single case. So you will have to do some research to find out if the attorney you are considering actually has experience in Iowa workers compensation cases. In my opinion, the I will work comp system is far too complicated for a general practice attorney, criminal law or other family law attorney who has only handled a few cases in their life. If the attorney does not focus on workers compensation cases, and does not stay current on the changing laws, then the attorney may make a costly mistake in your case, a mistake which could cost Thousands of dollars. Here are a few tips when looking for a qualified attorney. Number one, what do other attorneys and past clients have to say about the attorney, you can go to www.avvo.com, which is an independent attorney rating site that allows other attorneys and clients to post their experiences with the attorney. Number two, while you or your family are at avvo. com, look to see what the attorneys Avvo rating is. The ratings are on a scale of one to 10 and range from average to superb. Number three, what kind of results has the attorney obtain for prior clients? You should be able to find this kind of information on the attorneys web page and or in written materials they offer to potential clients. Number four, has the attorney written a book record a CD or produced a video like the one you're watching? About work injuries to help teach Iowans about the system. These are a few things to look for when finding the best workers compensation attorney for you and your case.
