1. How much do you charge?
There is no charge or obligation for your first visit or telephone call. We work on a contingency fee basis. This means that you do not pay attorney’s fees up front; your attorney gets paid only if he or she recovers money for you, either by settlement or jury verdict.
2. What about other costs?
Kanoski Bresney will advance all necessary costs associated with your case including legal document filing fees, fees for expert witnesses, fees to obtain medical records, postage, copy charges or deposition fees. These costs are deducted from your damage recovery.
3. How much is my case worth?
Generally, if the liability issue (who was at fault) is clear, we base a case’s value on your past medical expenses, future medical expenses, lost wages, loss of your future earning capacity, and pain and suffering. Based upon our extensive experience with personal injury cases, we are normally able to provide you with a range of estimated value.
4. How long will it take to close my case?
That depends upon the complexity of your case. If you are still healing and your future medical needs have yet to be determined, we will not rush to resolve your case. A typical case can be resolved within four to eight months after being accepted by the firm, but that time period fluctuates depending upon the facts of the case. Some cases can last months, even years. We do everything we can to move your case forward in a timely manner.
5. When should I get started? Is there a Statute of Limitations on my case?
Do not delay. Illinois has statutes, or state laws, governing the time allowed for filing specific types of lawsuits. These time limits are called “Statutes of Limitations.” If you miss the deadline for filing your case, you lose the right to do so. You are best protected by discussing your case with an attorney as soon as possible.
