Attorney’s fees in workers compensation cases are contingent attorney’s fees and they’re governed by Minnesota statute and the contingent attorney fee is at a rate of 20 percent of any contested or disputed benefit that your attorney successfully recovers on your behalf. Sometimes part of our representation is recovering a non-monetary benefit like an unpaid medical bill or the entitlement to rehabilitation services or retraining benefits. When we successfully procure those types of benefits for our client then we can make an attorney fee claim directly against the workers compensation insurer.
