Hi, my name is Kenneth Berger and I made this
video to help answer the question of how you can find the best workers compensation attorney
in Columbia, South Carolina. Now, I didn’t make this video to tell you that I’m the best,
I made this video, again, to give you some of the things, some of the criteria to consider
when choosing the right workers compensation lawyer for your case. Some people think workers
compensation is just a formula and that any attorney can handle that type of case, I disagree
with that position. Workers comp is a very complex, intricate system with a lot of pitfalls.
So you want to find out from an attorney: how much experience and what percentage of
their practice is devoted to workers comp. Another thing that you’re going to want to
find out is how much knowledge does this attorney have with medicine, anatomy, and physiology.
Workers comp cases, a lot of times, turn on medical records. Workers comp commissioners
(ie: judges) look in the medical records and in a lot of ways listen to the doctors just
as much as much as they listen to the attorneys, if not more. So you want an attorney who understands
the spine, the knee, the shoulder, or brain injuries, to be able to effectively represent
your interest and not just gloss over the medical records. You’re not going to hire
a heart surgeon based on a television ad, and thats definitely not the right way to
pick a workers comp attorney either. So do your research, find out as much as you can
about the attorney, their credentials, their references, and then meet with a couple of
them to find out who you like the best before you sign any fee agreements. To set up a consultation
with me or get free copies of my books, simply call my office. We look forward to speaking
with you, and we’re glad to help you in any way we can.
