Do I Need a New Lawyer? 

Can I Change Lawyers?

Can I get peace of mind that my lawyers advice is best?

Many times injured Longshore Act workers sign up their case with a lawyer that doesn't quite measure up. This happens after they get to know the lawyer or when the lawyer tells them to settle their case for chump change. Turns out either the lawyer doesn't  know the law (which happens more than you might think) or they are lazy or both. In any event, we are often asked, "Can I change my Longshore Act lawyer?" The answer is , of course, "Yes. You can change lawyers anytime you choose under the Longshore Act."

Time and again we have had seriously injured Longshore and Harbor Worker Compensation Act workers tell us their lawyer is telling them to settle their case for $5,000 ot $10,000. In many circumstances we evaluate their case and we discover their case is worth many, many times more. Sometimes hundreds of thousands of dollars more.

There are some circumstances where we advise the client that they have a very competent Longshore Act lawyer and their lawyer has correctly valued their case. In either case, the client has peace of mind that they are not under settling their Longshore Act case. Then you have peace of mind.

That is what we provide peace of mind. We can only get you the benefits you are entitled to under the law. And we will tell you what we think we can do with your case. There are no guarantees with life or law - - but we will tell you what we think.

Other times we uncover a viable 905(b) vessel owner negligence case or we find a Longshore Act third party case. You would be surprised how many times we are able to spot and prosecute a successful third party work injury case when countless other lawyers either didn't spot the case or didn't realize the value of the case.

 

Will I be charged more money in attorney fees if I change lawyers?

No,  if you change lawyers you still only get charged one attorney fee.  For example, if the old lawyer had a fee agreement for 18-20%,  that is all the fees you will have to pay.  In other words you are not penalized for chaning lawyers. 

 

How hard is it to change lawyers?

Not hard at all. Sign a few forms and the old lawyer has to send your new lawyer your file.

A Knowledgeable Oakland LHWCA Lawyer Can Help

Having a lawyer who is experienced in handling Longshore Act matters and dealing with insurance companies can mean all the difference between receiving medical treatment that is going to get your better and not obtaining the benefits you deserve under California workers compensation laws.

Always tell the truth.

Make no mistake about one thing. When you go into court asking for money, the jury is not going to believe you. If the other lawyer catches you in a deception, half-truth, fib or lie most likely you are going to lose. You are much better either dealing with the Judge on the front end on the issue and/or telling the jury about it right from the start. Otherwise, you will lose your case. Always tell the truth in your court case.
