Richmond Workers’ Compensation Attorney Fees

dollar-signIf you are like many people, you may believe that hiring a Richmond Workers’ Compensation attorney to represent you in your work injury claim will cost a lot of money. However, many lawyers work on a contingency fee arrangement, which means the only way they get paid is if your claim is successful. Inquiring about a Workers’ Comp attorney’s qualifications and fee schedule is often helpful when considering representation.

The percentage of the benefits your attorney will receive varies not only by attorney, but also by jurisdiction. Most states place a cap on the percentage that an attorney can collect from the benefits that a client is awarded in a claim. In some states, your attorney may be paid by your employer’s Workers’ Comp insurance policy.

When you talk to potential attorneys, ask about their fees upfront to better understand how the process works. It is also a good idea to meet with more than one attorney so you can compare fees and the attorneys’ credentials.
