We always welcome you to contact our office for complimentary consultations with one of our Chicago personal injury lawyers.
Is It Worth Hiring an Attorney?
The decision to hire an attorney is a personal decision and is up to the individual. However, from an economic perspective, retaining your own lawyers, may dramatically increase the value of your case.
Astudy conducted by the Insurance Research Council (IRC) revealed that people who hired a lawyer received 3.5 times more compensation for their case compared to those who handled the matter on their own.
Further, another IRC report “Auto Injuries: Claiming Behavior and Its Impact on Insurance Costs,” revealed that 85% of insurance company settlements related to accidents were made to people who had an attorney representing them
What Percentage Do Most Lawyers Take From a Case?
Our law firm handles each case on a contingency fee basis. Our legal fees typically range from 1/3 (33.33%) to 2/5 (40%) of the gross recovery via settlement or trial in an injury or medical malpractice case. In workers compensation matters, our fee is 20% of your recovery as controlled by theIllinois Legislature.
For example, in a truck accident case involving multiple broken bones that settles for $1,000,000 the legal fee would typically be $333,333.33. If there are any costs involved (such as court costs, deposition fees, medical records), these would be deducted from the balance and the client would receive the remainder.
When you retain our firm, you will receive a written contract setting forth all legal fees and expenses related to your case. Our goal is to be as transparent as possible when it comes to your legal representation so you have a clear understanding of the legal process and all fees and costs involved.
What Falls Under Personal Injury Law?
Personal injury is a broad area of the law that is designed to provide economic compensation to a person who is injured due to the negligence of another person or corporation.
Sometimes referred to as 'tort law', the law entitles an individual that suffers injuries to recover compensation for all past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, permanent disability and lost wages.
While this area of the law can be complex, most cases involve injuries sustained in a car accident, truck accidents or motorcycle accidents.
Medical malpractice also falls under the umbrella of personal injury law and may involve matters such as surgical errors, anesthesia mistakes and birth injuries that occur during labor and delivery.
In the situation where a person dies in an accident, defective product or due to medical negligence, the surviving family may pursue a wrongful death lawsuit. Most wrongful death cases involve a recovery for the deceased's medical expenses, loss of economic support and loss of consortium or loss of emotional support.
How Much Is My Case Worth?
Most injury and accident cases are dependent on two factors, the extent of the individuals injuries and the amount of insurance coverage available. The value of a case is also dependent on your age and if you will require future medical care.
For example, John Smith and Sally Smith are injured in a rear-end car accident. John injures his back and goes to the emergency room and undergoes a series of physical therapy sessions after which his back injuries have resolved.
Meanwhile, his wife Sally suffers spinal cord injuries and a herniated disc in her neck that requires epidural injections and eventually undergoes a fusion surgery after which she has permanent disabilities. In this situation, Sally will likely receive a larger settlement than her husband due to the nature and extent of her injuries.
At Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC, our goal is to maximize the value of each Chicago personal injury matter to accommodate the wishes of each client.
How Long Will It Take to Resolve My Case?
The time frame for resolving an injury or medical malpractice case will differ considerably for each matter. Factors such as the complexity of the case, the number of defendants involved and the extent of the injury are a few of the factors that may shorten or extend the settlement process.
Most of our straightforward car accident cases are resolved prior to filing a lawsuit in negotiations with an insurance carrier. In some situations, we can resolve these cases within 90 days of our client's discharge from medical care.
However, more complex medical malpractice cases involving birth injuries may take years to resolve as many of these cases require extensive litigation and may require a jury trial.
Similarly, most wrongful death cases tend to take longer to resolve both due to their complexity as well as the need for court oversight in the distribution of funds from a settlement or verdict.
Our Chicago personal injury lawyers are mindful of the time constraints that each of our client's face with their case. In addition to keeping you apprised of the status of your case, we will also respect your decision as to how you wish for us to handle your case from a settlement or litigation perspective.
