You need to know how attorney fees are paid in injury and Social Security Disability cases because it can make it much easier for you to obtain expert legal assistance.
These cases are not like the cases where you must pay a lawyer $300 an hour or pay $5,000 in up front fees.
There are no up front fees in Illinois Work Comp cases, personal injury cases, or Social Security Disability cases.
Lawyers who represent you in these kind of cases only get paid if they win the case for you.
Attorneys are paid different percentages in each type of case.
Illinois Workers’ Compensation lawyers received 20 percent of what is recovered.
Personal injury lawyers receive one-third of what is recovered.
Social Security Disability lawyers receive 25 percent of back benefits awarded to you.
