Attorney Fees in Personal Injury Cases

Attorney fees in all personal injury cases handled by Leonard Law Group are 33 1/3% if the case is settled prior to suit having to be filed. If suit must be filed, the attorney fee is 40% because of the legal work that must then be performed, including written and oral discovery, the hiring of experts, and all pre-trial and post-trial motions. Leonard Law Group is also reimbursed for all expenses incurred during the representation. This fee structure applies to all personal injury cases of any nature and kind.

Attorney Fees in Workers’ Compensation Cases

Attorney fees in workers' compensation cases are governed by Section 16 of the Illinois workers' compensation act. The Act provides for contingent fees with no upfront retainer owed to begin and carry on the representation. Generally, attorney fees will not exceed 20% of the total settlement or trial award plus expenses incurred by Leonard Law Group throughout the life of the case. Expenses are usually very minimal when compared to the value of the case. These expenses may include medical record copying fees, deposition fees and expert witness fees. The remaining 80% is tax free to the client. Leonard Law Group does not charge attorney fees for undisputed periods of TTD or undisputed payment of medical bills. If the client has secured a written offer prior to representation by Leonard Law Group, the attorney fee is 20% of the total settlement or 50% above the written offer, whichever is less.

If Leonard Law Group does not recover for you or cannot increase the prior written offer, no attorney fees are owed. Contact us at (312) 487-2513 today for more information about our fees.
