Get an Injury Lawyer in Illinois
Not all personal injuries are caused by accident. In most cases, it is a result of somebody
else’s negligence or wrong doing. A personal injury lawyer will make sure that your rights
are protected and that you are properly compensated for the injuries you incurred. You can
collect damages for both physical harm and mental anguish.
Experience is the key
The track record is the single most important factor to consider in looking for a personal
injury lawyer. A highly experienced attorney will have a good track record in handling cases
similar to yours and will not only know what to do but can effectively negotiate with the
defendants. This is especially critical if the other party is trying to low ball the settlement
One way of knowing is to check the lawyer’s portfolio. How many personal injury suits has
he handled so far and what are they? How many cases did he win, settle, or lose? Who were
his previous clients? Did he represent large companies or the average Joe?
Do your research. Ask friends and families for referrals. If they don’t have
recommendations, check online review sites or go to your local court house. Look for
positive and negative feedbacks particularly on the attorney’s rates, responsiveness,
professionalism, and the outcomes of their cases. Does he handle the case personally or
passes it on to his assistants? Can he be reached for questions? Is he handling too many
cases at the moment that he is unable to keep track of each one?
You will not be Charged by Our Offices Unless You Recover Financial Compensation
While some lawyers bill per hour, our law offices only bill on a contingency. During the initial
consultation with your personal injury attorney, discuss his charges and find out if you need
to make upfront payment, if he charges retainer fees, and if there are other charges you
need to pay aside from his or her professional fees.
