Re: How does lawyer get paid?
My husband applied for and got SSD (since the company told him to apply, as you said) before we even hired the lawyer, so nothing was deducted from it. I know we have to pay 15% of the total WC award to the lawyer, but I am just wondering if by the time we actually get any money, the indemnity portion is so low that it doesn't cover his fee. Unfortunately the indemnity amount is determined by a formula and has been decreasing ever since he was declared P&S, since his biweekly payments come out of it. They wouldn't take it out of the medical portion, I would think.
