Payment & Fees
Consultations with Beau Wilder for Workers’ Compensation Cases Are Always Free of Charge.
All workers’ compensation cases are taken on a “contingency fee” basis. This means that you pay no money up front for a lawyer and there is no fee for a consultation. Instead, your lawyer will take the fee as a percentage of your settlement. The law in South Carolina generally restricts an attorney from changing more than 33% of your settlement or award. You are still responsible for any costs associated with obtaining the settlement or award, such as the fees for gathering your medical records. These costs do not have to be paid up front; instead, they will be reimbursed to the attorney out of the settlement proceeds.
