The Law Firm of MillerKing LLC has vast experience in representing injured workers. Our team of lawyers and staff members will strive that our clients and clients’ families receive all protections and benefits provided under workers’ compensation laws. In addition, we will inquire and investigate if a 3rd party is responsible or shares in responsibility for the accident or injury. Each claim or case is handled with personalized attention to detail, assertive advocacy, open lines of communication, and professionalism to achieve the best outcome or result. Our goal is to protect each client’s rights, ensure timely and proper medical treatment is provided, and maximize the monetary award or compensation.
The Law Firm handles every workers’ compensation claim or case on a contingency fee basis as set forth by Illinois law. This means that MillerKing LLC is paid only after a successful recovery is made on behalf of the client. In addition, MillerKing LLC will advance necessary case costs, such as payments to order and receive medical records, medical reports, and doctor’s depositions. Typically, the client is unable to pay for certain case costs at the beginning of the case because of the injury, lost wages, and other hardships. The advanced case costs are reimbursed upon successful conclusion of the claim or case.
The choice of a lawyer is a significant and vital decision.
First, it is prudent to visit a lawyer’s website to obtain basic information. A well-designed website should provide contact information, biographical information, and basic content in an ethical and understandable manner.
Second, it is important to schedule an initial meeting or consultation. Some consultations may be handled by phone, but many initial meetings or consultations should be conducted in person. By visiting a lawyer’s office, the potential client may interact with staff, evaluate the law firm’s organization, professionalism, and hospitality, and assess the potential attorney-client relationship first-hand. Do you feel comfortable? Is the law firm professional? Is the environment welcoming? Do you believe that your case will be handled competently and with open lines of communication? Did the lawyer listen? An open and honest meeting in a confidential setting may alleviate or lessen fears, anxieties, stress, and unknowns.
Finally, the potential client and lawyer must agree on timelines, expectations, fees, costs, and acknowledge that no outcome is guaranteed or promised. The potential client and lawyer must understand and acknowledge each person’s role and obligation within the attorney-client relationship.
