The issue of worker’s compensation in New Mexico often pits the interests of an injured, mistreated, or sick worker against those of an employer or the employer’s insurer.
There have been many cases where a worker’s compensation claims are adversarial and difficult, requiring the engagement of an experienced lawyer to argue the worker’s case. For a worker to win a compensation case, however, it often takes more than just finding “a lawyer.”
Your worker’s compensation attorney should be a compassionate and understanding law professional who can personally go the extra mile to pursue the matter both through negotiation and in court, and be ready to be beside the victim in such a time of difficulty.
It is not uncommon for employers to want to suppress the rights of workers in New Mexico, especially those for whom English is not their first language, or those who lack knowledge of their rights under our legal system.
An experienced attorney will also provide invaluable assistance when a worker’s claim is denied, when the benefits are cut off, or even when an accepted claim comes with notice of closure or other time-sensitive documents.
Choosing an Attorney to Handle a Workers’ Compensation Claim
There are a number of things to consider when looking for an attorney to help you argue your case against your employer. First, the attorney should have experience in such matters. The firm should have a solid reputation in handling worker’s compensation cases and should ideally be respected by arbitrators as well as the legal community.
Considering how ‘personal’ worker’s compensation cases can get, the attorney you choose should also be respectful and down-to-earth – a person with whom you feel you can trust with sometimes sensitive work-related issues.
