Though they shouldn’t be, workers compensation cases are often brutal legal battles in their own right. Insurance companies typically spend thousands of dollars on attorneys who specialize in workers’ compensation just to try and reduce the benefits and workers compensation you receive in the end. More often than not, injured/disabled workers aren’t even able to fight back properly, and are left to return home with less than what they were entitled to. The solution, of course, is to hire trained workers compensation lawyers of your own, like ours at Esper Aiello Law Group, so that you can fight back. However, if you’ve been struggling just to keep up with your bills and put food on the table since your accident, you might be more concerned with how much workers compensation lawyers fees are. Luckily, we have some good news for you.
How Much Are Workers’ Comp Lawyer Fees?
Unlike most other states, Michigan is unique in the way it approaches workers compensation cases, and actually has restrictions for how much workers compensation lawyers can charge. If, for instance, benefits are disputed, attorneys can only charge “15% of the first $25,000 and 10% on what’s left of any settlement.” For benefits being paid already, fees must equal no more than 10% of the settlement. It is also feasible to “win” lawyer fees for medical expenses as well in some cases. Although, if disputed benefits are ever paid later on, voluntarily, fees reflecting up to 30% of a settlement may be claimed, including 30% of any past-due benefits if the case goes well at trial.
