Who pays legal fees in workers compensation cases?

Categories: Illinois Workers’ Compensation Law. | April 28, 2020

If you’ve been injured on the job, you might be wondering if you can afford to try to get workers’ comp benefits.

Fortunately, it’s affordable, because workers’ comp attorneys always work on a contingency fee basis. This means the lawyer only gets paid if you get paid, and you don’t need to worry about paying the fees up front.

Even in relatively uncomplicated situations, it’s often a good idea to contact a workers’ compensation attorney for a free consultation about your case. While in some limited circumstances the workers’ compensation carrier will pay you a voluntary offer of settlement, you likely will get a smaller settlement than your case is actually worth without having a lawyer represent you. Having someone on your side who understands the law can maximize the amount of benefits that you receive after you are injured at work.
