What Does it Mean When an Illinois Personal Injury Lawyer Says, "No Fee If No Recovery?"

Lake County Personal Injury Attorney Explains Contingency Fees

When our attorneys meet with a client, we try to determine whether or not they have a viable personal injury case. This can depend on many factors, such as whether an injury was the fault of someone else and the extent of the damages suffered. Under the Illinois civil justice system, if your injury was the fault of another, then you are entitled to be paid for your losses, such as lost wages, medical expenses, and repairs to your vehicle or property, as well as the pain and suffering you have experienced.

Once we know the full details of your case, if we believe that you have an excellent chance of recovering compensation, we will accept the case without charging you a fee unless there is a recovery. This is what is called a "contingency fee," meaning our fee is dependent on our success with your case. The fee will typically be a percentage of the amount recovered, and you do not need to pay Salvi & Maher, LLP until the conclusion of the case when compensation is awarded.

Attorneys often refer to the contingency fee as the “average person’s key to the courthouse.” This means that when you are pursuing compensation for your injuries, you will get the best lawyers, like the ones at Salvi & Maher, LLP, without being billed. We work as a team, and our interests are to help you receive the settlement you deserve. You can rest assured that we will only be paid if we are successful in recovering compensation for you.
