In Iowa alone, more than 15,000 workers suffered injuries on-the-job that required days away from work in 2009. So what does this mean? It means some employers are not taking necessary measures to provide a safe work environment and prevent injuries.
People with Iowa workers’ comp claims are beginning to realize that they must learn more about Iowa work comp laws or risk making a costly mistake. Why not begin the process by requesting our workers’ comp injury book that we offer at no cost or obligation? You can read our book in the comfort of your own home with no risk or pressure.
After reading the book, you should know if you need a lawyer to handle your workers’ compensation case. If you need an Iowa workers’ comp attorney, then you should know that not all attorneys are qualified to handle your case. Before making important Iowa workers’ compensation decisions like hiring an attorney, we are here to offer you some tips for finding the best legal representation for your claim.
Just because an Iowa workers’ comp attorney advertises that they handle work comp injury cases does not mean they are good at them. The legal profession has become more and more specialized but it is your responsibility to find the best lawyer for your work comp case.
When looking for a qualified lawyer, one thing to look for is if the lawyer advertises “practicing primarily in workers’ compensation law.” In order to advertise like this, the lawyer has to spend at least 40% of his or her time handling work injury cases and spend at least 15 hours per year continuing their education on the subject of Iowa work comp laws. Another thing to look for is if the lawyer lists past results in helping clients make the right Iowa workers’ compensation decisions. What kinds of cases has he/she handled and what results have they obtained for their clients.
Some questions to ask include:
- What do past clients have to say about the level of service they received?
- Did the lawyer return phone calls?
- Did the attorney take time to explain the process and answer questions?
If the attorney does not have one or more of these listed on their website or advertisement, then you should perhaps look elsewhere for help making Iowa workers’ compensation decisions.
These are just a few examples of what to look for when deciding if an Iowa workers’ comp lawyer has the knowledge of Iowa work comp laws to assist with your case. At Walker, Billingsley & Bair we are confident in our attorneys and their experience working with the Iowa work comp laws.
