Do you have evening or weekend appointments?

What do you charge to handle my personal injury case?
We work on a contingency fee basis. This means that we are not compensated unless you are. Many attorneys will raise the fee if the case does not settle and proceeds to trial. We at Goldstein, Bender & Romanoff will never charge a higher fee if we take your case trial. In fact, we accept every case with the expectation that we will proceed to trial. Goldstein Bender & Romanoff also advances litigation costs so you will not have to spend your money to prosecute your claim. We recoup these costs once we have successfully obtained a recovery on your behalf.

We also work on a contingency fee basis for workers’ compensation claims. We will also advance the costs necessary to prosecute your claim and will recoup them after obtaining an award, settlement or verdict.

How long do I have to bring a lawsuit?
There are deadlines imposed by law. For instance, in Illinois injured victims typically have two years from the date of injury to sue for damages. However, deadlines may vary depending on the type of case and the facts involved. If you believe that a deadline is approaching in your case, or are unsure when your deadline is, please consult with an attorney as soon as possible.

What documents should I bring with me when I meet with an attorney?
It is important to bring as much information as possible. Bring any documents that you believe are relevant to your case. Examples include accident reports, medical reports, signed contracts, photographs, and any other written materials you might have. If you do not have any documents at the time of your first meeting with Goldstein Bender & Romanoff, we will make every effort to assist you in obtaining the necessary documents.

Why meet with our personal injury attorneys?
If you are injured because of someone else’s negligence, you have the right to be compensated for your injury, including compensation for related medical expenses, pain and suffering, disability, lost income and more. Do not let insurance companies manipulate your rights. They have attorneys working on their side. You deserve a level playing field. The consultation is free and you only pay for our services if we settle or win your case.

When should you call Goldstein Bender and Romanoff?
Immediately. Without realizing it, you could make a decision that could have negative consequences.
