Not All Lawyers Get Paid Alike

In Illinois, different types of lawyers get paid in different ways.

Some lawyer are paid by the hour, or require upfront retainer fees.

Illinois Workers’ Compensation lawyers, Social Security Disability lawyers, and personal injury lawyers are paid at the end of the case based on a percentage of what amounts they recover for you.

This helps you get a lawyer to represent you and protect your interests without having to pay any upfront money.

For instance, Work Comp lawyers are paid 20 percent of the recovery. Social Security Disability lawyers are paid 25 percent of your back benefits awarded. Personal injury lawyers are usually paid one-third of the amount of money they win for you.

This provides an incentive for the lawyers to win your case for you.

Make sure that you get the help you need against insurance companies and the government. They have plenty of lawyers to assist them in defending against any claims you file.

Important Tips for the Injured

Whether your case involves a Work Injury, a car or truck crash, or a Social Security Disability claim be sure to tell your Doctor about all your problems.

In addition tell your Doctor what limitations and ongoing problems you have suffered as a result of your injury and conditions.

This is important because the value of your case increases with permanent or ongoing limitations and restrictions.

Disability is based on your permanent limitations and restrictions.

The best proof of limitations and restrictions is medical records and opinions of your treating doctor.

The doctors cannot treat you, examine you or provide an opinion unless you tell them regarding your ongoing problems and how they limit you.
