When deciding to hire an attorney to handle a workers’ compensation claim, a common question is “How am I supposed to pay my attorney?” At Younce, Vtipil, Baznik & Banks, P.A., we don’t get paid unless we get money for you, we’re successful in winning or defending a benefit you’re entitled to, or we have spent a significant amount of time in your case.
Our North Carolina workers’ compensation attorneys are not paid by the hour as most attorneys are. The legal fees that attorneys may charge for handling N.C. workers’ compensation claims are regulated by state law and must be approved by the North Carolina Industrial Commission, a state government agency that oversees workers’ compensation cases.
We recognize that if you are injured and unable to work, money may be tight, and you should not have to worry about how to afford a lawyer. Therefore, our committed attorneys at Younce, Vtipil, Baznik & Banks, P.A., handle workers’ compensation cases on a contingency fee basis. That allows injured workers to have experienced legal representation without having to pay for a lawyer out of pocket. An experienced workers’ comp attorney can guide you through the complicated appeals process if your claim has been denied or the amount of your workers’ compensation benefits are in dispute.
The initial consultation with a workers’ compensation attorney at Younce, Vtipil, Baznik & Banks about your workplace injury claim is free and carries no obligation. We will treat you with respect and individual attention, explain your legal options, and whether appealing a disputed claim is appropriate in your case. We only charge an attorney’s fee if we are successful in obtaining benefits for you.
