Here is my top 5 list of things to look for in your Illinois Workers’ Compensation Lawyer:

1. Do they know the law? You need someone who practices Work Comp law day in and day out.

2. Can they explain what is going? There are many procedures and laws that govern Illinois Work Comp law. You need to understand what is happening in your case.

3. Will they talk to you? If your lawyer will not return your call everything else falls apart.

4. Will they do what you ask? If you want a trial will they do what you ask? You should expect advice from your lawyer, but the ultimate decision is yours.

5. They cannot be afraid to lose. Not every case is a winner. But if you are afraid to show up for trial the other side will run over you.
