Finding a Workers Compensation Attorney in Lakewood, CA
If you have been injured or disabled in the workplace, you have lost your livelihood and must now rely on Workers Compensation benefits to support yourself and your family. Because you need the maximum benefits you can collect – and you need them quickly – choosing the right Workers Compensation Attorney can be one of the most important decisions you will ever make.
But with so many attorneys out there – on the Internet and on TV – how do you find and choose the best Workers Compensation attorney in the Lakewood Area? Here is a list of criteria you should consider when searching for a Workers Compensation Attorney in Lakewood.
Look for Attorneys who Specialize in Workers Compensation in the Lakewood Area
When you are considering hiring a Workers Compensation attorney it is important to determine if they specialize in Workers Compensation – or if Workers Compensation is just one of many types of law that they practice.
Workers Compensation is a unique & complex area of law. It is governed by a specific set of laws & regulations that apply only to Workers Compensation claims & appeals. An attorney who handles hundreds of Workers Compensation cases will know the laws & regulations much better than an attorney who only occasionally handles Workers Compensation cases.
Similarly, Workers Compensation cases are handled in a completely separate “system” than other types of cases. Workers Compensation hearings are held in different “court rooms” than other types of cases, in front of completely different adjudicators and judges than other cases. An attorney who handles Workers Compensation cases every day of every week will know the hearing officers, judges and other adjudicators who will be handling your case – often enabling them to obtain a better result in your case.
At the Law Firm of Cantrell Green, all we do is represent injured and disabled workers. We know Workers Compensation Law “inside and out” because we have handled thousands of Workers Compensation Cases. And our attorneys know each of the hearing officers and judges individually – so we understand the differences between each, as well as what each one is looking for in granting approval of a Workers Compensation Claim.
Look for Workers Compensation Super Lawyers in the Lakewood Area

Only attorneys who have attained the highest degree of peer recognition and the utmost in professional achievement receive Super Lawyers status. Only 5% of attorneys nationwide qualify for Super Lawyers recognition.

What About Lakewood Workers Compensation Attorneys in Television Commercials?
Remember that television commercials are just “advertising” – created by slick advertising agencies that are paid thousands of dollars to make an attorney “look good”. Anyone can say pretty much anything they want in a commercial – including that they are “the best”! So a television commercial is not the best way to pick an attorney.
Select a Lakewood Area Workers Compensation Attorney who will Handle your Case Personally
It is very important to ask your attorney if he or she will be handling every aspect of your case personally, or if they typically “farm out” the work to paralegals, law clerks or assistants. We believe that cases handled by non-attorneys are often likely to settle for far less than their actual value.
At the law firm of Cantrell Green your case will be handled by your own personal, experienced Workers Compensation attorney from start to finish. Your attorney will be with you every step of the way – as a compassionate listener and an assertive advocate – making sure that you obtain the maximum benefits to which you are entitled.
