It is extremely important that you have trust and confidence in your attorney. Many times I talk to people who are already represented in their Minnesota workers’ compensation claims and they reach out for a second opinion or have questions that their present attorney isn’t answering for them. It is important to know that you are able to switch attorneys at any point in your representation, without any cost to you. If you choose to switch attorneys, you can continue treating with your present doctor, you can continue seeing your current Qualified Rehabilitation Consultant (QRC).
With regard to attorneys’ fees, it doesn’t matter whether you switch. Regardless, attorneys’ fees are capped at 20% for all Minnesota workers’ compensation attorneys. If we do settle your case or get a resolution hearing, it is between your present attorney and your prior attorney to sort out the fees amongst themselves. You will not have to pay any additional monies for making the switch.
Therefore, if you have any questions or need a second opinion with regard to your claim, feel free to give us a call at Meuser Law Office, P.A. We are happy to answer any questions you may have or give you a second opinion. Again, it is so important that you have trust and confidence in your attorney.
