Not All Workers Compensation Attorneys Are Equal
There are some exceptions out there but most workers compensation attorneys are pretty good at what they do and make a difference in the value of the case or at least preventing the injured workers from getting taken advantage of on their claim. But what do workers compensation attorneys charge? How much is there fee? The administrative law judge must approve any fee and they range between 12% and 15% depending on various factors. You should never be charged more than 15% and no cost should be assessed. Hire local! Out of the area lawyers are generally less effective than local ones because they are unfamiliar with the local players which include treating doctors, panel qualified medical evaluators, Judges and defense attorneys. It is also more difficult for them to make appearances so they have more incentive to avoid a fight than us locals.
