Why does it matter if you have an experienced workers compensation attorney?

Many injured workers want a compensation attorney that has handled cases similar to their particular case.  It is easier for an attorney to argue the facts of the case when they are familiar with relevant facts and ignore those that are not so relevant.  For instances: assume a worker fell from a truck and broke his ankle.  A compensation attorney may ask questions about how he fell, did he slip on oil, did he trip on some debris, or did he trip on his shoelaces.  These specific questions will almost always be unnecessary for the attorney to ask and an experienced workers compensation attorney will know this.  As long as the injured worker did not fall because of some idiopathic condition, drugs, alcohol, or confrontation he will likely be covered under workers comp laws.  An experienced attorney can expedite the process by ignoring irrelevant facts and getting to the point. 

 

An experienced workers compensation attorney has represented clients from all walks of life and from many different industries.

Workers Compensation benefits are available for employees.  If you are an employee as defined under the Maryland workers comp statute then you will likely be covered by workers comp unless there is some other valid defense to the claim.  An experienced workers compensation attorney should be able to determine if a claim is valid and compensable within a few minutes of speaking with the injured worker.  Below are the industries we have represented clients in and some of the injury scenarios.  As you will see the list includes doctors, professors, office personnel, and construction workers.

An experienced workers compensation attorney in Baltimore should know about injuries the worker has sustained

It is important to have an attorney that has some understanding of a particular injury that the employee sustained.  While most attorneys are not also doctors, it helps if the attorney understands basic medical terminology, conditions, diagnostics, and the like.  An experienced workers compensation attorney will have a solid understanding of injury diagnosis and the nature of the severity of various injuries.  Not only does it help the attorney to argue based on the medical evidence provided, but it may give the injured worker the upper hand at the time of settlement or trial.  As an example, an attorney with little experience may not fully comprehend what a spinal herniation is and the potential outcome of surgery or life debilitating pain.  This could lead to an inadequate settlement or inappropriate settlement.  An experienced workers compensation attorney in Baltimore would know a spinal herniation could lead to surgery or the need for lifetime medical care.  Some but not all of the injuries in cases we have handled  are listed below: 

The hand and fingers:

  • lacerated fingers, amputated fingers, amputated hands, trigger finger, fractured fingers, fractured hands, crushed hands and fingers, carpal tunnell, De Quervain’s syndrome, and hand and finger sprains/strains.

My experience with the law firm of Cohen and Dwin was very professional. Mr Rodabaugh was very kind and easy to talk to in a very professional manner. The receptionists were helpful in guiding me through the procedures. I would definitely recommend Mr Rodabaugh in the future.
