Retaining the services of an attorney is not required in an Illinois motorcycle accident claim, but it puts you at a significant advantage when you’re up against insurance companies with ample resources. There is no upfront cost to hire a lawyer to represent you in a motorcycle accident case because most personal injury attorneys accept cases through contingency-fee arrangements.
Even if you are not at fault for your motorcycle accident, a skilled accident attorney can mean the difference between receiving a minimal insurance payout or a substantial settlement that will fully compensate you for your present and future damages. At Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC, we represent individuals injured in Illinois motorcycle accidents on a contingency fee basis, which means our firm will take your case regardless of your financial situation.
We understand that this is a financially challenging time for you and your family. In lieu of charging you directly for our services, we only receive a legal fee when we win financial recovery for you through settlement negotiations with the other party’s insurer or a court-ordered award. If we are unable to obtain compensation for you, our services are free and you do not owe us anything.
Under Illinois law, a contingency-fee agreement must set forth the terms of the agreement in writing and be signed by you and your attorney.
Put Our Experienced Motorcycle Accident Law Firm to Work for You
While there are many lawyers who may offer to represent you in an Illinois motorcycle accident case, you need to make sure the law firm you hire has the legal skill, experience, and resources to ensure you are properly represented in what might be a long-term effort. Accidents involving motorcycles involve unique issues, and before you hire a lawyer ask them the following:
- How many motorcycle accident cases have you handled?
- Have you ever tried a motorcycle injury case before a jury?
- Do you have access to expert witnesses such as physicians, economists, accident reconstructionists, life care planners and vocational counselors?
- Can you provide examples of the monetary recoveries you’ve obtained for other injured motorcyclist clients?
- How many other cases are you currently working on (this is designed to find out if the attorney can devote enough time to your case)?
- Are you available by phone or email to answer my questions while you are handling my lawsuit?
If the attorney whom you are meeting with cannot answer these questions or attempts to diminish their importance, you might want to keep looking for a lawyer who is willing to do so. Before you choose an attorney to represent you in a motorcycle accident case, we invite you to contact Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers to schedule an in-office or at-home meeting with one of our attorneys who will answer the above questions and any others concerning your situation. We have successfully represented many motorcycle accident clients and their families; let us put our expertise to work for you.
