In this blog, we will go over a few things before hiring a worker's compensation lawyer for your claim. We'll discuss the importance of labor rights and how these laws have changed in recent years. The next section will be all about finding a qualified attorney that can help you through the process. Finally, we'll give some advice on what to do after you hire an attorney so that everything goes smoothly from start to finish!

Labor Rights

Labor rights are in the news a lot these days, and it's important to know what your labor rights mean for you as an employee. Back before worker's compensation laws were passed, many employers would force their employees into signing contracts that took away their right to sue if they got hurt on the job. These "waiver" contracts could be signed at any point during employment and made it so that injured workers had no legal recourse against their employer after they'd been hurt while working! Luckily, there have been strong reforms over recent years (especially with the Black Lung Act of 1969) which have mandated stronger protections for workers who get sick or injured on the job.

For example, employers can't ask you to sign waivers anymore and they must provide workers' compensation insurance for their employees. If you are injured or become ill as a result of your job, you are now protected by law and have the right to pursue legal action. This is where hiring a workers compensation lawyer can be so important - they will know exactly what rights you have under the law and can help guide you through the process of filing a claim.

Finding a Qualified Attorney

When looking for a qualified attorney to represent you in your workers' compensation case, there are some things you'll want to keep in mind. First, make sure that the lawyer practices labor law - this is their specialty and they will be better equipped to handle your case. Second, ask around for referrals from friends or family members who may have had to hire workers compensation lawyers in the past. This can give you some insight into how good an attorney is before you've even met with them!

Finding Qualified Attorneys for Your Case

After finding a qualified labor and employment law firm, there are several things that they will need from you in order to help create your claim:

- A copy of your last paycheck stub (showing gross income, deductions, etc.) - W-20s or other forms provided by employers if required by state law - The name and contact information of any witnesses involved (co-workers or supervisors) - All medical records related to injuries sustained while working If these documents aren't readily available at home because they were lost/destroyed in the accident, your lawyer will likely be able to help you get copies from your employer or the insurance company.

What to Do After You Hire an Attorney

Once you've hired a workers' compensation lawyer, there are a few things that you can do to make sure the process goes as smoothly as possible:

Follow their advice and cooperate with them fully - Keep all communication lines open and respond promptly to any questions or requests - Gather together all of the documents they need (see list above) so that they have everything they need to start building your case

These simple steps will help ensure that your case is handled quickly and efficiently so that you can move on with your life!
