What are contingency fees and how do they work?

Contigency fees are the legal fees that are charged by an attorney based upon the outcome of a case, rather than charges calculated on an hourly basis. A contingent fee is usually calculated as a percentage of the amount recovered by way of a settlement or verdict. If you do not win your case, and there is no settlement or verdict, then there is no fee that is charged to the client for the time and work done by the attorney.

What is a Statute of Limitations?

A statute of limitations is a law that establishes the times within which a lawsuit may be filed. If the case is not filed in the proper court within the time established by the statute of limitations, you may very well lose the right to bring your case, no matter how strong a case you may have had before the limitations period expired. The application of the statute of limitations and other time limitations on your case is another reason that you need Your Chicago Accident Attorney as a part of your legal team. When we are retained as your attorneys, we immediately investigate, research and determine the appropriate limitations period to apply to your case so that your rights are protected!
