Do I Have to Pay Any Costs?

Your Case Is Unique

In other areas of law, you win your case or you lose your case. Workers’ compensation doesn’t have that all-or-nothing approach.

It has many different parts. Fighting for your benefits often involves dealing with a series of small issues.

How much you get from workers’ comp depends on the specifics of your situation. Every case is unique.

You need a lawyer who understands workers’ comp and puts time and care into the details of your case.

The attorneys at Mitchell & Associates can help you get the most out of workers’ comp based on your particular circumstances.

What Does Workers’ Comp Pay For?

Workers’ comp benefits cover three different kinds of costs:

  • Medical care
  • Lost wages
  • Job counseling

These benefits are important for you to heal from your injury and move forward with your life. And they each have their own rules and special considerations.
For example, you will receive medical care, but how you choose your doctor is important.
You get payment for lost wages, but it has limits.
And the job counseling services available to you may not always serve your best interests.

How Much Does a Workers’ Comp Lawyer Cost?

An experienced lawyer can take the burden off you, so you don’t have to figure out all the different parts of the workers’ comp system by yourself.

While your lawyer deals with claims adjusters, nurse case managers and vocational rehabilitation case workers, you can focus on your health.

A lawyer who knows workers’ comp can make sure the system treats you fairly.

You don’t pay anything for a workers’ comp lawyer until your benefit checks start arriving.

Then attorney’s fees come from your benefits. And state law caps the percentage that lawyers can charge.

At Mitchell & Associates, it doesn’t cost anything just to call us and talk. We’ll provide an initial assessment of your case for free.
