How much do workers’ compensation lawyers charge in New Jersey?

There are a few things to know when it comes to the fees that workers’ compensation lawyers charge:
 
Insist on a free consultation
 
New Jersey workers’ compensation lawyers typically offer a free consultation. This is a significant opportunity to learn more about the recovery process, as well as a chance to meet the lawyer who will handle your case. With most lawyers offering a free consultation, there is no reason to pay a lawyer to meet with them.
 
Contingency-fee agreements
 
Most workers’ compensation lawyers will represent you on a contingency basis. This means that you will not pay any legal fees unless your lawyer can obtain a settlement award on your behalf. Not only does this make bringing a claim easier in that there is no upfront cost, but it also aligns your interest with your lawyer’s.
 
Litigation expenses
 
Bringing a workers’ compensation claim can involve considerable expense. However, most lawyers will pay for these costs upfront and only recover them if they can help you recover a settlement award.
 
The attorney’s percentage
 
If you find a lawyer who will represent you on a contingency basis, they will only charge you for their services when they get you a settlement award. Generally, most lawyers charge 20 percent of the total award amount. For example, if you recover a lump-sum amount of $20,000, your lawyer’s fee will be $4,000. 
 
Injured workers who retain an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer tend to recover far more in benefits than unrepresented workers. Lawyers are also often able to get claims approved timely. In sum, you will pay nothing unless you obtain a settlement award.
