How Much Does a Minnesota Workers' Compensation Lawyer Cost?

Attorney fees in a workers’ compensation case are contingent. What this means is that your lawyer’s fees in a workers’ compensation are based on the amount recovered on your behalf. Workers’ compensation lawyers generally charge 25% of the first $4,000.00 in benefits recovered, and 20% thereafter, up to a maximum of $13,000.00 per injury. These amounts are set by Minnesota law.

Your attorney is only paid if he or she is successful in securing benefits on your behalf.

What this means is that you do not have to pay a workers’ compensation lawyer a retainer or any upfront fees. It costs you nothing out of pocket.

If your case involves a dispute regarding your medical care or rehabilitation benefits, and you are successful, the workers’ compensation insurance company is typically responsible for paying your attorney what are known as Roraff or Heaton fees.

Because attorney fees in a Minnesota workers’ compensation case are contingent, there is no risk of incurring a large bill for attorney time if you are unsuccessful on your case.
