Atkins & Associates charges a 25% contingency fee on most workers compensation claims.
Attorney's fees fall into one of three main categories.
1. Review of Documents Only: The attorneys at Atkins & Associates do not charge for a review of a settlement agreement or permanent partial disability agreement. Call us at 801 521-2552 for a free consultation.
2. Representation at the Labor Commission: For the large majority of cases, attorney's fees are 25% of the benefits we recover for you, not including medical expenses. This is a contingency fee, which means you pay nothing unless we recover benefits for you.
Appeals to the Court of Appeals and the Utah Supreme Court are very rare, but require significant additional attorney time, so increased fees apply.
3. Starting in May of 2019 representation on small or medicals-only cases: When the disputed benefits involve only medical expenses or medical expenses plus $5,000.00 or less in benefits, the insurance company can be ordered to pay the injured worker's attorney's fees based on the medical expenses involved. The injured worker still pays 25% of the benefits recovered for him (up to $1,000.00).
