How much will an attorney cost me to represent me in my Workers’ Compensation Case? $100 per hour? $200 per hour?
According to Workers’ Compensation Board Rule 108, workers’ compensation attorneys in Georgia can charge a maximum contingent fee of twenty-five percent (25%) of the total award. Also, there is No up front costs .
What does that mean, you may ask?
- First, that your attorney gets paid only if you get paid; and,
- Second, that your attorney gets paid 25% of your any cash recovery attributable to his or her services
Out-of-pocket expenses are usually separate from the contingent fee, and these normally include postage, photocopies, costs for obtaining medical records, court reporter fees, and expert witness fees. Although these expenses are usually separate from the contingent fee, they are still subject to approval by the State Board of Workers’ Compensation.
