Can I handle my own workers’ comp claim?

Pursuing your workers’ compensation claim can sometimes feel like it’s a full-time job. The problem is that you already have a full-time job and, most likely, medical treatment and physical therapy that you have to take care of. It can be a difficult and stressful process, and you only have one chance to get it right.

What can a workers’ comp lawyer do for my claim?

An experienced workers’ comp lawyer can take care of all the forms, filings, and interactions with your insurance company to make sure that you can focus on what’s most important -- getting better. A workers’ comp lawyer can also take care of everything else to make sure you receive everything that you’re entitled to receive from the insurance company. That’s why we’re here to help.

What does a workers’ comp lawyer charge?

You don’t pay us anything out-of-pocket for us to represent you. Our workers’ compensation attorneys work on a contingency fee basis. You owe us no money up front and we only get paid if you get paid. Our fee arrangement must also be approved by the Industrial Commission, so you can rest assured that you are getting a fair deal with us. Under our typical arrangement, we level a 25% contingency fee. Some firms increase their fee if your claim goes past a certain phase. At OGBB, you won’t have to worry about ever paying more than you signed up for, as our rates won’t increase.
