In Texas, the way attorneys get paid is as follows: once the attorney completes work on a case, they submit it to the division for review. If the work is approved, the division sends out a notice to the client, the attorney, the insurance carrier, and if the client is receiving benefits, the approved attorney fee amount will be deducted from their weekly check at a rate of 25% per week. If the client is not receiving benefits, the accrued attorney fees will become a lien on the case for future payment. In short, if the client is receiving work comp income benefits, the attorney is entitled to 25% of the fee, regardless of the amount, to be deducted from the weekly check.
