Workers Compensation Lawsuit Costs

How Much Will it Cost to Start a Lawsuit?

Always get the terms of your retainer agreement with any attorney in writing. This way you are assured that you will never pay an attorney's fee unless a recovery, either by way of settlement or verdict, is made in your personal injury lawsuit.

All of the Workers' Compensation lawyers that we participate in our Lawyer Referral Service will take your case on a contingent fee basis. What this means is the law firm takes a percentage of the recovery. If there is no recovery the client is NOT responsible for any lawyer fees or any costs or expenses. Therefore, you are not taking any risks in filing a lawsuit.

Most people who are in a serious accident are now recovering from their injuries, so paying hourly legal fees is not practical. In most cases attorney fees can range from 15 to 20% range of the settlement and are governed by Workers' Compensation Boards. If an attorney is unable to collect money on your behalf, there is NO COST or charge associated with your end of the agreement. This is important because the cost of a trial can become an enormous burden for a patient that is already suffering enough; therefore a lawyer that works with no upfront costs to you is a great asset.
