Do I Pay Attorney's Fees on Workers' Compensation Benefits Received Before I Hired You?

Work Accident Injury Lawyer for Clients in Boulder County and Surrounding Areas

If you or a loved one was injured in the workplace in Colorado, you should file a workers' comp claim for financial relief due to lost wages. If you are already receiving workers' compensation checks, you may be wondering if you have to pay attorney's fees on payments made to you prior to seeking legal counsel. If you hire Hoggatt Law Office, P.C. we will not take attorney fees out of the checks you were receiving before you hired us. To schedule a risk-free consultation, contact our experienced injury lawyers today.

Understanding Attorney Fees and Compensation

In the state of Colorado, attorney's fees are limited to a contingency fee of 20 percent of the benefits an attorney reclaims on the injured worker's behalf. The fees typically come out of your settlement money, not out of your pocket. For example, in a case where you settle for $40,000, your attorney's fee should not be more than $8,000. You can also contact the Colorado Division of Workers' Compensation for more information on benefits.

If an attorney tries to collect more than 20 percent, do not use that lawyer or law firm. As a client of Hoggatt Law Office, P.C., you will only pay the contingency fee if we collect damages at the end of the case.

By law, employers in Colorado (public or private) must provide workers' compensation coverage for their employees if the company has one or more people working full time. Temporary disability benefits may be paid to you if you are completely unable to work. A maximum amount is set as a limit by law each year.

Collins workers' compensation lawyer at 970-225-2190 to learn how those fees work and what your options are for payment.
