What is the Cost of a Work Accident Lawyer in California?
Have you sustained an injury at work that has left you unable to return for sometime or perhaps not at all due to the severity of your injury?
Are you struggling to fill out the claim form or has your initial claim been denied?
Is your employer withholding information or denying the fact that your injury happened at work?
If you said yes to any of these questions, it’s time to connect with a work accident attorney as soon as possible.
Hesitant to Call?
Don’t let the cost (or what you think is the cost) of an attorney deter you from getting the benefits you deserve.
We understand that you might be hesitant to call an attorney because you have medical bills (which you shouldn’t be responsible for) pilling up and no income coming in due to being out of work, but we are here to tell you that you have options.

In this article we are going to discuss the cost of hiring a work accident lawyer and the benefits you will reap by doing so.
Advantages of Hiring a Work Accident Lawyer
One of the major advantages is that they are YOUR advocate. You need to focus and spend time healing and recovering from your injury, not focusing on paperwork and phone calls to different people and agencies. Let your attorney take care of that. They are experts in the industry and know how to talk to the insurance companies and fill out the paperwork accurately and error free. This helps to ensure that your claim gets processed faster because there are no paperwork errors/issues.
There are multiple types of attorneys that are able to take your case, however, a work injury attorney understands the laws inside and out and knows exactly what to look out for, what to identify and how to get you the maximum benefits you deserve.
They can help you receive a more substantial monetary settlement than if you chose not to hire one.
As stated above, many people might be hesitant to hire an attorney because they are already out of work, not receiving income and are worried that they might not even win their case.
Work Accident Attorneys, like us, here at Visionary Law Group don’t want you to worry about that. We work on what is called a Contingency Fee.
Hiring a lawyer who offers a Contingency Fee Plan means that you pay nothing until your case is settled. If you don’t win your case, you don’t pay a fee.
If you win your case, and are awarded a settlement, a lawyer hired on a contingency basis will recoup their fees from the settlement. This is typically between 15%-30%.
This may seem like a lot of money, however, your attorney will fight for benefits and repayments for things like gas reimbursement, medication, supplies, lost wages, permanent benefits (if injury is severe enough) and more.
They can help you get payment for things that might not have crossed your mind initially. This is why it’s beneficial to hire a workers’ compensation attorney, because you can most likely expect a larger settlement and better benefits and coverage compared to settling the workers’ compensation claim on your own.
