You can afford to hire a lawyer, because you do not pay attorneys’ fees upfront for assistance with a workers’ comp claim. By law, legal fees are paid as part of the workers’ compensation settlement. If you are not awarded a settlement, you pay nothing.
In New York, any legal fee must be approved by the Workers’ Compensation Board. In New Jersey, legal fees can never be more than 20 percent of the benefits awarded, and are set by the judge assigned to your case.Your employer’s insurance carrier pays the fee directly to your attorney.
