How much does a workers’ compensation lawyer cost?
Workers’ Comp benefits are available for injured workers when an injury occurred during the course of employment in Illinois. If you’ve been injured on the job, you might be wondering if you can afford to try to get workers’ comp benefits.
Illinois has specific rules governing how much lawyers can charge in workers’ compensation cases. This means the lawyer only gets paid if you get paid, and you don’t need to worry about paying the fees up front. Because of this, all employees who get injured at work, even those on a limited income, will be able to receive high quality legal representation.
If your injuries will cause you to be out of work for a lengthy period of time, you should consider hiring a lawyer as an investment to ensure you receive the maximum workers’ compensation benefits that you are eligible for. It also means far less hassle and headaches for you, as your workers’ compensation lawyer will take care of all the case details for you. Your ability to pay your bills and provide for your family may depend on it.
