When to hire or consult a workers' comp attorney in Wisconsin

It does not cost an injured worker any money to hire an experienced workers comp attorney.  In Wisconsin, worker's compensation attorneys work on a contingent fee basis, meaning we only get paid if we successfully help you get benefits.  If you are being paid worker's compensation benefits, you can hire an attorney to advise you and protect your rights but we do not take any portion of the conceded benefits.  We usually wait to get paid at the end of the claim, after we help you get more benefits than the insurance company would have paid without our involvement.

What Do Wisconsin Workers Compensation Attorneys Charge?

Nothing, unless you win.  In Wisconsin, workers compensation attorneys only get paid if they successfully help get you workers compensation benefits.  Its a 20% attorney fee on the benefits the lawyer helps to get for you.  In addition, if the lawyer pays up front for costs such as medical records, bills, and reports, as well as for vocational experts or other expenses to help prove up the case, those costs are reimbursed to the worker's compensation attorney out of any successful settlement or hearing.  If a lawyer does not get you a recovery, there is no attorney fee.  This contingency fee arrangement allows people to get quality legal representation in order to fight on a level playing field with the workers comp insurance company and its legion of lawyers, adjusters, nurse case managers and independent medical examiners or IME doctors.
