When filing a personal injury claim in Illinois, many victims of car accidents, trucking accidents, dog bites, and slip and fall accidents want to know how much pursuing a claim will cost them. Find out from an experienced personal injury lawyer if you need to be prepared for any out-of-pocket expenses.

Personal injury lawyers in Illinois are hired on a contingency fee basis, which means that you do not pay any money to an attorney out-of-pocket. Your lawyer will advance the filing fees, deposition fees, expert fees, and any other court costs associated with your case. If your attorney is successful and makes a financial recovery for you, those fees as well as the attorney costs of around 33 percent come out of your settlement at the end of the case. The benefit of hiring an attorney on a contingency fee basis is that you don’t have to pay any money in advance to get started, and you don’t have to pay any money if your attorney doesn’t collect compensation on your behalf.
