Attorney’s Fees in Worker’s Compensation Cases in Tennessee

What do attorneys charge for representing a worker in a worker’s compensation injury case in Tennessee?

The typical charge is 20% of the recovery.  The amount of the fee is subject to court approval.

In addition, most lawyers ask to be reimbursed for the expenses they incurred in prosecuting the case.  This includes money paid to court reporters for depositions, fees to doctors, and other expenses.  

Some lawyers charge interest on the money that was spent on expenses during the case.  Our firm does not do so.
