Paying For A Workers’ Comp Attorney
The thought of paying for a lawyer when you are hurt and cannot work can be difficult to deal with. But, there is good news. In Kentucky, workers’ compensation attorneys are paid on a contingent-fee basis. Essentially, this means you do not owe any attorney fees unless your attorney either wins for you at trial or reaches a settlement with the insurer. And, you do not need to pay the attorneys’ fees out of your own pocket. Instead, he or she takes a certain percentage of the compensation recovered.
