Workers Compensation Attorney CostOregon Workers Compensation Attorney Fees


Good news!  In Oregon, you do not have to worry about the workers compensation attorney cost.  There is no risk of receiving a bill for attorney fees, because workers compensation attorneys in Oregon are paid on a contingent fee basis.  This means that your attorney does not get paid unless he or she assists you in receiving a benefit.

Workers Compensation Attorney Cost for Denied Claims

If your workers compensation claim has been denied, you are probably discouraged and frustrated.  You might be wondering what your options are, like if you can afford help.  How much does a workers compensation attorney cost?  With a denied workers compensation claim, you will not be charged attorney fees unless your attorney helps you recover which can be done in two ways:

First, if your attorney helps you successfully challenge a denial, the insurance company pays the attorney fees and costs.  Second, if you choose to settle your workers compensation claim, a percentage of the settlement goes toward the workers compensation attorney cost.

Workers Compensation Attorney Cost for Accepted Claims

You have an accepted workers compensation claim.  Do you need to pay for an attorney?  Not in Oregon, but workers compensation law is still complicated.  There are surprises and hurdles even in accepted claims.  It’s important to have a professional help you avoid these problems, but you do not pay attorney fees unless the attorney helps you receive a benefit.  In other words a portion of your benefit goes toward attorney fees and you don’t pay anything out of pocket.

Attorney fees can be earned in several ways in an accepted claim.  First, the workers compensation attorney appeals your Notice of Closure and if you receive a higher permanent disability award, the attorney will receive a percentage of the increase.  Second, if you settle your claim, a portion of your settlement pays for the attorney fees.  Third, after being denied and your attorney is successful in getting the denial reversed, the insurance company pays the fees.

Having an attorney help you with your claims not only makes life easier, but it helps you get compensated appropriatly.

Settling Your Workers Compensation Claim

If you settle your workers compensation claim, then 25% out of the first $50,000 of your settlement and 10% out of any amount over $50,000 is paid toward attorney fees.

There is no risk of paying attorney fees out of your own pocket so you don’t risk losing your footing in your workers compensation claim.  Contact an expert to assist you today
