Calculating Attorney's Fees for a Car Accident Case

Personal Injury Lawyers Serving Chicago, Cicero, Oak Park, Berwyn and Nearby Areas in Illinois


TRANSCRIPT: Attorney's fees under personal injury cases are contingent, meaning my fees or my law firm's fees are contingent upon us recovering you an award of compensation for your injuries. Typically they are one-third recovery fees, meaning that we do not get paid unless we recover for you. So if I don't make a recovery for you, you don't pay me. If I do make a recovery for you, typically, we receive one-third of that recovery.
