Referring A Workers’ Compensation Case Is Good Business
Workers’ compensation is a specialized practice area and not a profitable one for many law firms in Atlanta and North Georgia. Obtaining full case value requires a comprehensive knowledge of statutes, case law, and Georgia State Board rules to successfully position the claim for settlement or litigation. Effective litigation demands experience to analyze the issues, depose the parties, gather relevant medical evidence, prepare the client for testimony and win at trial.
Our lawyer referral program can be a a better and more profitable business plan for your firm’s workers’ compensation cases. Our standard referral fee is 35 percent of the total fee we receive on any lump sum obtained for your client. Not all cases merit this fee and not all cases are acceptable for referral. Controverted claims and claims with existing medical disputes may warrant a lesser rate. The fee division is determined at the time of referral and documented in our confirming letter. We document all referrals to comply with Georgia Bar Rule 1.5.
Contact our Dawsonville firm and Attorney Chris York will come to your office to discuss our referral program. Your client relationships will remain intact, client depositions can be held at your office, you will have complete access to the file and we will report regularly on the progress of the case.
