Q. How are workers comp attorneys paid?
A. Workers compensation cases are handled on contingency. That means no fee is owed unless you receive additional workers compensation benefits or a settlement. The injured worker pays nothing up front, and the attorney advances all litigation costs throughout the case.
Paying a contingency fee allows injured workers to focus on recovery instead of financial stress.
