Workers’ compensation: Why work with a lawyer?

Five signs at a crossroad

Workers' Compensation: Why work with a lawyer?

While the workers’ compensation process may seem straightforward, it’s hard to know whether your settlement, your medical care, and your work accommodations are fair. Workers’ comp lawyers help you claim the maximum possible payout. They also make the process less stressful — mediating between doctors, employers, and insurance companies. Best of all, lawyers don’t charge anything upfront; they only get paid when you win or settle.

FAQs about workers' compensation

Do I need a workers' compensation lawyer in Massachusetts?

If your injuries are very minor, and you spend little (or no) time away from work, then a lawyer may not be much help. But if you require medical attention, miss work, or return to work on “light duty” — a workers’ compensation lawyer can ensure you get the care and payout you deserve. In fact, workers’ compensation payouts average 5x as much when a lawyer gets involved.

How much do workers' compensation lawyers charge in Massachusetts?

Workers’ compensation lawyers charge nothing upfront. They only get paid once you win or settle. In Massachusetts, lawyers are paid set dollar amounts based on their involvement in your settlement. For example, if an insurer refuses to pay within 21 days of your initial claim, but your lawyer represents you successfully to an administrative law judge — their fee for that involvement is $1,834.27.
