In many Provinces, States, and Countries there is special funding for low income individuals.
This fund is paid by clients of lawyers who can afford to pay lawyers.
Legal Aid is different from any other program as it provides a wide range of services.
For example you maybe able to pick your lawyer or paralegal,
where as other programs you get what you get.

Be warned that Legal Aid use to support appeals for injured workers at appeals
at the tribunal levels, but for example, in Ontario they no longer.
However, it never hurts to call, and ask,
in fact if they get flooded with calls maybe it will change!
