When people go to a Workers Compensation Lawyer they expect that the majority of the heavy lifting in the case will be done by their Workers Compensation Lawyer and this is the case. However, many clients are surprised at how long it can take to resolve their Workers Compensation case even though they have hired a Workers Compensation Lawyer. Often this leads to animosity that gets directed at their Workers Compensation Lawyer, as the client thinks that his case is sitting around collecting dust.
What you need to remember when you have hired a Workers Compensation Lawyer to handle your Workers Compensation claim is that your Workers Compensation Lawyer is as invested in the case as you are. They have no incentive to delay your case or to move your case too fast and have you get less than you deserve, this is the beauty of the contingent contract you have with your Workers Compensation Lawyer.
The fact is that Workers Compensation cases can take a long time. If you have medical treatment that takes months or even years there is not much your Workers Compensation Lawyer can do to change that. Once you have completed your medical treatment waiting on medical records and doctors appointments can lead to a lengthy delay before resolution.
