Why should I pay a Missouri Work Comp attorney a fee if the Insurance Company will make me an offer without a lawyer being involved?
With very minor injuries, sometimes you can handle the claim on your own. A good work comp lawyer will tell you if he or she do not think they could put you in a better position hiring a lawyer For instance if I don’t believe I can provide a benefit to a client I pass-up the opportunity to represent certain clients and only take workers’ compensation cases where I believe can help the client.
Is it really worth it to hire a lawyer though? A prominent legal newspaper called Missouri Lawyers Weekly stated that since the 2005 work comp reforms had gone into effect, injured workers that were represented by lawyers received on average of 49% more than unrepresented workers who handle the case themselves.
So most of the time, even after paying their lawyers the injured worker will come out substantially ahead than “going it alone”.
Many of the issues involved as Missouri workers compensation cases often are very complex and can be very technical in nature.
