You can hire an attorney to represent you in a workers compensation case, i.e. handle the case from start to finish. You hire an attorney by signing a retainer agreement. For clients that hire Rod Dunn, he charges a fee only if he successfully recovers additional benefits the employer or insurance company has failed or refused to pay you by either inning or settling your case. The usual fee is either 20% of the benefits recovered or based on the attorney’s hourly rate, whichever is greater. There’s no fee if I do not recover additional benefits for you.
