Question:

How do I pay the attorney’s fees for a workers’ comp case?

Answer:

A question I get a lot from clients is, “How do I pay your fee?” Most fees in the Massachusetts workers’ compensation system are paid by the insurance company. If you come to me and we have to file a claim, and we prevail, the insurance company pays my fee and they pay my expenses. The only thing that comes out of the client is if there is an order by a judge for ongoing weekly disability, the insurance company can hold 22% of those checks for four weeks only.Workers' Comp Attorney FeesThe bulk of my fee is paid by the insurance company. The only other way I would get paid is if there were a lump sum settlement of the case. If there is a lump sum, my fee is set by the state; it’s either 15% of the lump sum or 20%, depending on the type of case it is. It really doesn’t cost a lot to have a workers’ compensation attorney in Massachusetts.
