Alabama Workers Compensation Questions: (21) What are the Lawyer’s Fees?
A question we are always asked during our initial meeting with potential clients is “what are your fees?” We inform everyone that in accordance with Alabama’s Workers Comp laws, we do not charge a fee unless your case settles or you are awarded workers’ comp benefits by the court at trial, and our fee only applies to the settlement or award of a permanent impairment-we do not take a fee off of you weekly temporary total disability benefits.
Pursuant to Alabama’s Workers’ Compensation Law, the attorney fee is capped at 15% of the settlement or court judgment. We are also entitled to reimbursement of our reasonable case expenses (costs of medical records, filing fees, deposition costs, etc.), which unlike some Alabama Workers Comp attorneys, we do not collect unless your case settles or you were awarded workers’ compensation benefits by a judge. No up front costs are associated with your workers’ compensation case, so you don’t have to worry about our fee.
If you live in Alabama and are having difficulty getting your workers’ compensation benefits or having medical treatment authorized, don’t give up-contact one of the experienced Alabama Workers Compensation Lawyers at Powell and Denny today.
