How Much Do Workers' Compensation Attorneys Cost in Michigan?

In Michigan, workers' compensation law protects injured workers and their families by ensuring that medical care and compensation or wage loss benefits are provided for. Because of the complexities of both the law and the procedures to obtain workers' comp, it's never a bad idea for you to talk to a workers' compensation attorney. The Law Office of David Zimmerman, are specialists in workers compensation law in Michigan.

It is important to note that our legal services will cost you nothing to start. You pay only when there is a favorable judgement in your case.

When discussing attorney fees, it is important to understand that a workers' compensation claim is different than other types of injury claims because they are governed and regulated by Michigan Law. Secondly, our workers' comp attorneys are paid on a contingency basis, which means that the amount of money you pay them is based on a percentage, of what they recover on your behalf. That's why our legal services are free to start. If there is no recovery there is no fee.

Routine benefits like medical payments are typically not subject to the contingency fee. If, however, our lawyers fight on your behalf to have these benefits reinstated, we would be eligible to be paid a fee, but in only certain circumstances. The same is true when we reach a settlement with an insurance company in your case.

Our fees, set and regulated by the state of Michigan, are 15% of the first $25,000 recovered, then 10% of the balance if the case is actually litigated and then settled before trial. It is 10% if the case is not litigated and a settlement is reached while your michigan workers compensation benefits are being paid. Our workers' compensation attorney will be paid directly by the insurance company and will only collect a fee if your case results in a favorable settlement for you. When you contact The Law Offices of David Zimmerman, we can and will provide a detailed fee schedule. The fees will be put in writing.
