Most of the time, nothing. If you hire a qualified personal injury firm, you won’t need to pay anything up front to get your truck accident injury case started. As your legal counsel, we will take your case for free and will not bill you until you get the award you deserve.
Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC does not charge an initial consultation fee to discuss your Chicago truck accident case with you, and if you retain our services we work on a contingency basis. This means you do not pay any up-front fees for our services. In fact, unless we obtain a financial recovery for you, you will not owe us any legal fees.
We work through these arrangements because we know that accidents involving trucks and other large commercial vehicles come with tremendous costs of their own: ambulance and hospital bills, physical rehabilitation, lost income, and property damage, just to start. Rather than burden an already financially precarious situation, we want to be part of the solution. By fighting for your rights on contingency, we make sure you get the recovery you need as quickly as possible.
What Costs are Involved in Illinois Truck Accident Cases?
Despite the media’s and the public’s fascination with trials, the real work in Illinois truck accident cases takes place mainly outside of the courtroom—in the investigation, discovery, and analysis critical to the prosecution of any successful lawsuit. Consequently, this is where many of the bills rack up.
Here are some things that must be paid for in order to succeed in your Illinois truck accident case:
- Court costs: Every time you file a complaint, serve someone, enter a motion or do just about anything during trial prep, the court will normally charge you for it.
- Witnesses: When you think of witnesses, you probably think of the bystanders who saw the accident take place. While they’re important, you'll likely also need professional experts to testify on your behalf and they can be expensive—as much as $1,000 per hour.
- Staff: It takes a lot of people on a law firm’s payroll to make all the phone calls, copy all the documents, and conduct all the interviews in order to win an Illinois truck accident case.
- Miscellaneous costs: There are dozens of other costs involved in Illinois truck accident cases such as travel expenses, charges for obtaining medical records and bills, and more.
These costs might seem daunting, but they’re fairly typical and should be taken care of by the firm that handles your case. If you would like to know more about what it takes to mount a claim for damages in a truck accident suit, contact our accident injury firm.
