MY FEES: When you are injured or bringing a claim for discrimination paying your attorney should not be one of the pressures you face
Most cases are handled on a contingent fee basis. A Contingency fee is a percentage of the amount recovered. There is no payment unless or until money is collected for you. Attorney Healy is paid out of the recovery and only if successful in winning your case or obtaining compensation for you. Most of attorney Healy’s cases are handled on a contingent fee basis. “When you win I win.”
You do not pay for legal representation in Workers Compensation cases. Attorney Healy’s fees for active Workers Compensation representation are paid by the insurer.
If your workers compensation case is settled, that settlement must be approved by a Judge of the Workers Compensation Court. Attorney Healy then might be awarded a portion of the settlement as a fee. His fee is usually 20% of the settlement. You do not pay for legal representation in a Workers’ Compensation case.
