What happens after my attorney and I resolve my workers’ comp case?

I often like to check in with clients a few weeks, months, or even years after they’ve resolved their case and, hopefully, moved on to new vocations or educational opportunities that their bodies will allow after their accidents at work and the medical care that followed.  I’ve been invited to college graduations for former clients […]

Why should I hire a workers’ comp attorney if my claim is accepted?

I recently spoke to an insurance adjuster regarding a new client I signed up, and she said something I’ve heard from adjusters (and potential clients a few times) many, many times:  “We’re surprised he’s hired an attorney.  His case is accepted!” I tried to be polite.  I didn’t want to reveal things my client had […]

Is Rockwell singing about my workers’ comp case?

If you were at Harold’s Chicken & Ice Bar last night about midnight, you might have heard me perform Rockwell’s “Somebody’s Watching Me” at karaoke night.  It sounded exactly like this, in fact: I chose this song because 1) it’s underrepresented on karaoke nights and 2) it’s relevant to my law practice.
