Workplace Injury Frequently Asked Questions

WARNING: All of the information provided here is of a general nature only. The specific facts of your case may require a completely different answer. Do not base any decision with respect to your case solely on any of the answers found herein. Prior to making any decision with respect to your case, you should speak with a competent attorney who is familiar with the laws that relate to your case.

How much will it cost me to hire a lawyer on my workers compensation case?

Answer: All attorney’s fees must be approved by the Virginia Workers Compensation Commission; however, typically, in the event of a settlement, our fee is 20% of your recovery. That is the fee that the Commission will typically approve. That means, that in the meantime, you do not have to send us any money, and there is no retainer fee of any kind.

In addition, there are small, additional attorney’s fees that the Commission may Order in connection with any hearings we may pursue on your case; however, these fees rarely exceed $2000.00.
