In the aftermath of a work-related injury, one of your primary concerns is finances. You may be uncertain about how you’ll meet your financial obligations and you don’t want any unnecessary expenses. But you need to hire an experienced workers’ compensation attorney to ensure that you get the benefits you deserve? How much is that going to cost? What will you need to come up with out of your own pocket? Here’s the really good news—when you seek benefits through a workers’ compensation claim, you never have to pay your lawyer directly!!

So how does your lawyer get paid? It’s a pretty straightforward process. The judge and/or the Workers’ Compensation Board will determine, in your case, what fees are reasonable and appropriate for your attorney to receive. It’s similar to the contingency fee that most lawyers charge in a personal injury claim, typically a percentage of the amount of benefits that your lawyer is able to recover for you. It can also be based on the range of services that your attorney provides. Accordingly, when you receive benefits, a percentage of those benefits will be deducted and paid to your lawyer for services rendered.

There’s a real benefit to you in this approach. Because your lawyer gets a percentage of any amount recovered, the incentive is to work harder to get a larger award for you, so that the attorney also gets a higher fee.
