What is a Contingency Fee for Illinois Personal Injury Attorneys?
As experienced Chicago personal injury attorneys, we have seen first-hand the turmoil that occurs in the wake of an unexpected illness or injury. Often, victims experience the one-two punch of a serious accident: First, the pain and suffering caused by the negligent actions of another, and then a devastating financial crisis created by mounting medical bills and loss of income.
At Drake & Collopy, P.C., we understand that many of our clients are encountering
an extreme financial hardship through no fault of their own. This is why we operate on a contingent fee basis. As advocates for your best interests, our goal is to help you alleviate your burdens and repair your life to the greatest extent possible. We don’t charge any attorney fees until we have reached a settlement on your behalf.
Why hire an attorney on contingency?
Generally, retaining the services of an attorney on contingency allows you to acquire the highly skilled legal counsel you deserve as soon as possible. There’s no need to adjust your budget so you can someday save enough funds to cover the costs of legal representation. You can begin the legal process immediately, which helps ensure valuable evidence is not lost or forgotten.
Other benefits of hiring a lawyer on a contingency basis include:
- Your attorney and you are on the same page: If no recovery is made in your case, your lawyer doesn’t get paid. Furthermore, your attorney is your partner on the case; the more compensation recovered for you, the greater the attorney fee. This is a huge incentive for your attorney to work diligently to achieve the best results possible in your case.
- Swift and efficient: Attorneys working on contingency are strongly motivated to keep expenses low and work toward a swift resolution of your case. This enables you to regain your financial stability more quickly than other forms of representation.
- Larger recoveries: In the end, your attorney’s fee is based on a percentage of your overall recovery. This motivates your attorney to obtain the maximum compensation for your injuries. Additionally, a skilled personal injury lawyer can find other sources of recovery you may not have known you had, thereby adding to the amount of restitution you obtain.
