How Do Maryland Workers' Comp Attorneys Charge For Their Services?

Workers' compensation cases are handled on a statutory contingency fee basis.



Maryland workers' compensation cases are handled on a contingency fee basis. The contingency fee percentages are fixed by statute and by a body of law known as COMAR, The Code of Maryland Regulations. The idea here is that the more the injured worker recovers, the lesser percentage that the attorney recovers in terms of an attorney fee. As a general rule of thumb, whatever an injured worker receives for a permanency award in worker's compensation, the attorney is going to receive 20% or less of that award.

I hope this addressed your question. Over the course of 25 years, I've found that fully addressing a legal question is best handled in a one-on-one, in person strategy and case analysis conference. I offer these to potential clients on a complimentary basis. Please use any of the methods under the contact tab at the top of the page to arrange yours.
