Chicago Car Accident Lawyer

A car accident can have devastating impacts on one’s life, as it can mean anything from property damage to long-term injuries, and high medical expenses to lost wages. Because the consequences are very real and can be very severe, it would be in your best interest to consult with an auto accident attorney if you were involved in a Chicago car accident. The right attorney for you is one that is not only experienced, compassionate, and committed but also one that will utilize every resource available to ensure that you receive the compensation you need and deserve to recover in a timely and comfortable manner.

At The Horwitz Law Group, our Chicago auto accident lawyers have dedicated their careers to ensuring a positive outcome for each and every one of our clients. Because we understand that every situation is unique, we provide personalized care and attention to each case that we handle, and do not rest until our clients have received the compensation they need to get back on their feet. 

Screening Potential Auto Accident Lawyers to Handle Your Case

When hiring a lawyer to handle your car accident case, you need to put in some legwork to find an attorney who is well-suited to your case. Our Chicago car accident attorneys ask each potential new client to come to the initial consultation prepared with as much information as possible regarding their accident and the circumstances leading up to it. Furthermore, we ask them to bring any evidence of their injuries and other damages, such as medical records, doctor’s notes, photos (if available), the police report, and lost wage statements, among other things.

On your end, you may find it helpful to come prepared with the following questions:

  • What percentage of your practice do you devote to auto accident cases?
  • What experience do you have in dealing with the specific type of injury in question?
  • What do you value my case at?
  • How much of my case will you handle yourself?
  • What is your fee structure?
  • What out-of-pocket expenses am I responsible for?

A good auto accident attorney should be able to answer each of your questions with ease; if they deny answering one or more questions, you may want to continue your search. 

Have You Found the Right Chicago Auto Accident Lawyer for Your Particular Case?

As we mentioned above, a lawyer may be good at what they do, but they may not be the right lawyer for you. When searching for the right lawyer for your particular case, you want to make sure that they not only have experience in dealing with cases of your nature, but that they have achieved successful outcomes for other clients in similar circumstances. Furthermore, you want to know that when you hire them, they are going to make you a priority, and that they will be committed to your case until they have successfully negotiated a fair and adequate settlement on your behalf. Finally, you want to be sure that they have only accepted your case because they believe that they can win it, and not because they need a paycheck. This is where knowledge of his or her fee structure comes in handy. 

Most personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, meaning that they only get paid when you do. In a contingency fee arrangement, an auto accident lawyer will collect a percentage of their client’s winnings, which is to be set prior to any contracts being signed. This means that you do not have to pay any legal fees upfront; rather, your lawyer will handle all expenses associated with your claim, and arrange for reimbursement on the condition that they negotiate a successful outcome.
