Workers Compensation Attorney Fees | Alabama



Attorney Fees for Workers' Compensation claims in Alabama are fixed by the Alabama Workers' Compensation Act as contingency fees at 15%. The good news is that you don't have to pay me anything out-of-pocket. The only way you pay me is out of your recovery. 

How Do Contingency Fees Work?

In a Contingency Fee situation, I usually will pay case expenses on the front-end on the condition that you agree to pay me back out of any recovery from your claim. Expenses commonly include:

  • Filing Fee: to file your claim into court,
  • Records Fee: copy fees to gather your records,
  • Depositions:
    • court reporter and
    • transcript fees, and
    • doctors typically charge between $1,000 and $1,500 for a one-hour deposition.

I try not to incur fees on your behalf unless they are necessary, but, you can see how workers' compensation claims that go to trial can incur thousands of dollars in fees.

We Either Win Together or Lose Together

If you claim is denied, and we lose in court, then you do not owe me the expense money I spent on your claim. There is a certain amount of risk on my end involved in taking claims on a contingency fee structure, but, most of my clients are hurt and cannot work. They are in the worst position they could be in to hire a lawyer. Once I'm on your team, and standing in your corner, we either win together or we lose together.
