You only pay if we win money for you. If you do not receive compensation, neither do we. This is called a contingency fee agreement. Personal injury cases are normally handled on a contingency fee basis because if injury victims had to pay up-front and out-of-pocket, they would not be able to afford legal representation. Our Chicago car accident attorneys will explain how this works during your free initial consultation.

It is unfortunate that so many car accident victims do not know that they will not need to pay their personal injury lawyer unless they settle or win an award. Too many injury victims forego the compensation they so badly need because they think they cannot afford an attorney.

Car accident victims have enough financial problems without adding attorney’s fees and the costs that are necessary to pursue a lawsuit. Our Chicago car accident attorneys do not bill you by the hour. Our firm advances all of the costs, such as court fees and the cost of hiring investigators and experts. If we win for you, we are reimbursed for those expenses and our fee is a percentage of the compensation we recover on your behalf.

Contingency fees are typically about one-third of the recovery, although this can vary based on several factors including the complexity of the case and whether the case is resolved by settlement or trial. You won’t have to wonder, however. The contingency fee agreement is a written agreement which you review and sign before we start working on your case. So, you will know exactly what to expect.

If you have been injured in a car accident in Chicago or anywhere in Illinois, please call us today at (312) 313-2888 to learn more about how we can help you recover the compensation that you need and deserve.
