When an employee is first hurt on the job questions begin pouring into their mind.  It is a stressful circumstance and like with all of life stresses, the longer questions go unanswered the deeper the impact is felt. 

To help quell some of the stress related to a work accident it is often useful to hire a workers comp attorney.  For some this may be the first instinct and only hours later they will have secured legal representation to help them along the way.  For others, the fact that Workers Compensation Attorneys even exist is a surprise.  It is important for those injured on the job to do their research and choose whether or not hiring an attorney is in their best interest, which attorney they should hire, how the attorney to client relationship works, expectations the injured worker should have of their attorney, and expectations the attorney will have of the injured employee.

DOES THE INJURED EMPLOYEE REALLY NEED A WORKERS COMPENSATION ATTORNEY ?

As a practicing Maryland workers comp attorney I must self promote and say yes.

Here is why!

WEIGH THE PROS AND CONS OF HIRING A MARYLAND WORKERS COMP LAWYER

Again I must say yes because I am a Maryland Workers Compensation Attorney.  However, I have attempted to way the potential benefits and disadvantages of hiring a workers compensation attorney in this link

HERE ARE SOME REASONS TO HAVE A MARYLAND WORKMERS COMPENSATION ATTORNEY

The fact is there are a lot of good reasons to have a workers compensation attorney on your side.  For most employees hurt on the job these reasons do not become apparent until a certain stage in the case.  There is a chance some damage is done to the case before the injured worker decides to lawyer up.  Thankfully, most damage can be explained away and reversed once represented.  It is never to early to get an attorney involved.

WHEN DO I HIRE A MARYLAND WORKERS COMPENSATION ATTORNEY?

As I earlier stated it is never to early to hire an attorney to help with the case.  Their are, however times when the injured worker will need a lawyer more than other times.  There are certain benefits that are very difficult to obtain without legal representation.  There are also certain events in a case that indicate injured workers rights are about to be affected.

HOW MUCH DOES A WORKERS COMP ATTORNEY CHARGE?

As I stated earlier some injured workers will reach out to a work injury attorney within hours of an accident.  Others do not know Work Injury attorneys even exist.  A good majority of people are unaware of what fees are paid to a work comp lawyer.

WHAT DOES A WORKERS COMP ATTORNEY DO?

A great majority of work an attorney performs is done behind the scenes.  Because of this elusive work product represented claimants often feel as though the attorney is not doing much to help them.  I receive regular calls from already represented workers with this complaint.  I encourage those workers to reach out to their counsel and ask them what work has been performed on their case.  This communication can go along way.

I AM NOT GETTING RETURN CALLS FROM MY MARYLAND WORKERS COMPENSATION ATTORNEY

Communication is a necessity for proper representation.  Workers Comp attorneys are very busy and often it is not feasible to return calls, or take them immediately, however clients should be entitled to a prompt response either by the attorney him/herself or an assistant. 

TERMINATING MY MARYLAND WORKERS COMP ATTORNEY

Although it is usually best to try and work out any differences the injured worker and attorney have, sometimes the separation of the relationship is necessary.

THE LOCAL MARYLAND WORKERS COMP ATTORNEY MAY NOT BE THE BEST OPTION

The selection of an attorney is an important one as there are some attorney’s more qualified and experienced than others.  Often an injured workers first thought is to hire an attorney that is local to them.  This is not always in their best interest.  The reality is that most if not all interaction with the attorney can be made by electronic and hard mail communication.  Of course their is something to be said about being able to see the attorney in person on a regular basis, but this factor alone should not lead to a compromise of qualifications.

    I needed a lawyer for my workers compensation case. I was referred to Mr. Rodabaugh. I was very nervous about the case, and a little overwhelmed. Mr. Rodabaugh took extra time to talk to me (lots of questions he answered over the phone) and explained step by step of how everything worked. He was very confident, and made me feel comfortable with my case and decision. I highly recommend Mr. Rodabaugh.   

IS THERE A BEST MARYLAND WORKERS COMP ATTORNEY

 

  1. The relationship between the attorney and the injured worker is what matters. There are more qualified versus less qualified attorneys however, many attorneys can get all the benefits to which the injured worker is entitled.  To say that one is the best at one particular occupation indicates that they are better than all others in every regard to the occupation.  With workers comp attorneys- some are better at negotiating, while others are better at litigating, some are better at settling, while others are better at communicating.  Again, it is the relationship between the worker and the attorney that is important and whether the particular attorney meets the needs of the particular injured employee.

YOUR MARYLAND WORKERS COMPENSATION ATTORNEY SHOULD UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU ARE GOING THROUGH!

An injured Maryland worker may be faced with some of the most difficult decision in their life.  They may have to choose between physical health and financial well being, what utility bills should be paid first, whether they want to accept an early retirement, or more.  These difficult questions demand the representation of an attorney that understands, can relate, and who has compassion to listen and counsel.

WHAT ARE FREE CONSULTATIONS

Injured Maryland workers should be diligent to arrange at least one free consultation so they can get a better grasp as to what their rights may be.  Free is free.

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.
