How much does it cost to hire a lawyer and do I really need one?
An attorney’s fee in a worker’s compensation case is set by the WC Board. The fee is a percentage (20% and sometimes less) of the money you recover and every attorney in the State has to do it the same way. There are no up-front fees and no hourly charges. There is never a charge for your initial telephone consultation, so you can discuss your case for free before making your decision.
