For anyone who has suffered a work-related injury or illness, it’s important to understand all of the costs that are associated with the workers’ comp claim, including the cost of a workers’ compensation lawyer.  

How Much Does a Workers’ Comp Lawyer Cost?

At the start of your claim, our attorneys will provide you with a free initial consultation. During this time, you will be given the opportunity to ask preliminary questions about your case. You will also be given information about how your case will be handled, should you decide to work with this attorney.

The laws and regulations associated with workers’ compensation attorneys vary for each state. Typically, the judge overseeing the case must approve the attorney fee before the lawyer can be paid. During this time the workers’ comp judge will take into consideration the complexity of the case, time and work involved, benefits that were awarded, and the final outcome of the case. All attorney fees are approved by a law judge.
