How much does the Gorey Law Group charge for handling a personal injury case?
We do not charge our clients a fee unless we are successful in obtaining a recovery on their behalf. We work on a contingency fee contract, which means that our fee is entirely dependent upon the recovery made in the case.
If we accept your case, we charge a fee based upon a percentage of the recovery obtained by settlement or verdict. If we are unable to obtain a recovery for you, there is no fee for the work that we have completed. The percentage charged depends upon the type of case that is pursued. Most personal injury and wrongful death cases involve a fee of one-third of the recovery, while medical malpractice fees are governed by an Illinois statute and the percentage depends upon the amount of the recovery. We will go through the contract in detail so that you fully understand the fee arrangement as well as the costs and expenses related to the case.
