It’s never an easy decision to move forward with a lawsuit. Unless you are a contentious person by nature, you may find it an act of unnecessary aggression, even if you were injured as the result of someone else’s negligence. This is, in fact, the way many insurance companies and corporations want you to look at the situation. They want you to believe that filing a lawsuit is the act of a greedy individual and that you’re hurting not only them by taking that step, but others as well, in the form of increased premiums and higher prices. Don’t believe it for a minute. If you are entitled to compensation, you are entitled to compensation. A good auto accident lawyers from Law Office of Samuel I. Kane, P.A. can help you get what you deserve. Here’s how to find one.
Use Your Friends
If you know anyone who has hired an auto accident lawyer in the past, make them your first stop on your search. Attorneys rely heavily on word of mouth when it comes to effective advertising. You can’t believe anything you see on a billboard or hear in a paid spot, but you can believe what your friend tells you about their experience. Plus, you have at least one example of a case in which that attorney was successful (assuming that he was). But the outcome of the case is secondary. Your case may bear little or no resemblance to that of your friend, so don’t put too much emphasis on the results of a specific case.
If you have an attorney of your own for some other purpose, they may be able to refer you to an auto accident lawyer who can help with your case. Don’t make the mistake of repurposing an attorney, however. Some attorneys have a good relationship with their clients and are thus who the client expects to represent them, regardless of the field. But a tax attorney isn’t going to know the ropes when it comes to personal injury law. He will be perfectly capable of filing the briefs and showing up in court, but he isn’t going to have the experience and knowledge it takes to be successful. Have him refer you to someone who knows the field.
Keep Your Options Open
You don’t have to hire the first auto accident lawyer you meet with. Even if you take a consultation with an attorney who is chomping at the bit to get in your case, take your time and make a measured decision. You can always come back after reviewing your options.

Workers have rights. They have the right to claim compensation in cases when they become injured at work. Their families also have the right to claim compensation in situations where they (the worker) may die or become seriously injured when on the job. Worker’s compensation is a system of laws designed to protect injured or deceased worker’s families.
Why you may need Day Law Group workers compensation lawyer
Most workers who become injured on the job suffer from minor, recoverable injuries. They also may qualify for basic worker’s compensation benefits, mainly to cover missed wages. However, workers who experience serious, often debilitating injuries need legal aid.
People with serious and/or debilitating injuries may have trouble seeking compensation from employers. A worker may need a workers compensation lawyer when:
They may be refused benefits they’re entitled to claim
They may be told to return to work when they’re not physically able
They may be denied extended or permanent disability, despite having a disabling injury
Workers who have gained injuries or disabilities on the job are encouraged to seek assistance from a workers compensation lawyer. Workers compensation lawyers generally have extensive knowledge of the workers compensation system and can provide beneficial advice and assistance that will help workers eventually settle their cases.
