Atlanta Workers’ Compensation Attorney – How Do Workers’ Compensation Attorneys Get Paid?

Typically speaking, most Georgia workers’ compensation attorneys work on what is called a contingency fee contract. This is a contract that states the attorney’s office is entitled to up to a maximum amount of 25% of any recovery in the claim in exchange for representation.

The injured worker typically does not have the funds to pay for an attorney up front because they are hurt, can not work and are either receiving reduced income benefits from workers’ compensation or are not receiving any income at all and therefore would be denied access to legal representation if they were not able to obtain representation on a contingency fee basis.

In addition to the attorneys fees there can be expenses. Expenses are the money spent up front by the attorneys office for postage, copying costs and any other typical charge that would be required to bring the claim forward.

Most contingency fee contracts are written where the attorney will not receive any money for attorneys fees if he is not successful in obtaining benefits or a settlement in your claim.

  • Awesome Lawyer and very helpful!

  • Mr. Wilson is truly a very good person who cares about people. I understand he selected this career but I do know he makes many sacrifices to help he’s clients. I am very grateful to have had him as my attorney and if I ever have to use one again (hopefully not) it will be Mr. Wilson.

  • He worked with me. He told me everything. He called me. He gave me all the information.

  • He will be my family lawyer from now until the end because I can trust him.

  • He's just a great guy.

  • He always calls you right back and even if it's on the weekend - he's going to call you back.
