Select A Winning Personal Injury Law Firm In Illinois


If you have been involved in an accident and need to find a law firm with a personal injury attorney that can win your case it is important that you keep several things in mind and know what to ask.

If you have been injured in a car accident or any other accident, you need to find a top-rated lawyer fast. However, you need to know how to get to the right lawyer and sort out the bad ones quickly.

You should start the process as soon as possible after the accident. This usually means within days, or at least the first two weeks, depending on your injuries. You can rest assured that the at-fault driver’s insurance company has a team of people working the case to reduce the amount they will have to pay you in the end.

You should understand how a personal injury law firm is compensated. Although many people have a general idea about this, most people have misunderstandings regarding the attorney contract. Almost all attorney contracts are based on a contingency fee; in other words a percentage of the settlement or judgment. This amount is not always the same and can range from 33% to 50% and higher. The percentage often depends on the amount of work involved and the type of insurance carrier that your attorney may be facing. Oftentimes, sub-standard insurance carriers are extremely difficult to work with and attorneys demand a higher percentage as a result. You should always inquire as to the amount of compensation that the attorney expects from the case.
