Although at Rouleau Law we do not handle "workers' compensation" claims we know the importance of these types of actions and work with other attorneys who have a great deal of experience with these types of claims. We will gladly assist you in locating a qualified Workers' Compensation Attorney even if we chose not to accept your case for personal injuries.
BEFORE hiring a workers' compensation attorney it is extremely important that you consult with an experienced personal injury trial attorney for a substantial number of reasons. In our experience Workers' Compensation attorneys function on a high volume of case with lower per case attorneys fee thereby making it more difficult for them to pay the special attention that is required to properly preserve and prepare your rights in a catastrophic injury case. In such cases Workers' Compensation Attorneys can frequently overlook possible product liability and toxic tort claims, as well as the differing statutes of limitations associated with those claims, which are generally shorter than those for Workers' Compensation claims. Most importantly however is the fact that the settlement of the Workers' Compensation Claim can under certain circumstances bar or adversely affect the much larger and more significant claim for personal injuries or wrongful death. If the Workers' Compensation Attorney does not actively consult and work with the personal injury trial attorney regarding the facts of the case it is possible to cause very serious harm to the success of the claim for personal injury.
