Kirkpatrick Injury Law Offices in Belleville, IL
Representing those injured in workers compensation, personal injury and construction accidents in Belleville and Southern Illinois
St Clair County Illinois personal injury law attorney, Eric Kirkpatrick, grew up in Benton, Illinois and attended Southern Illinois University in Carbondale where he ultimately received his law degree in 1991. For a short time after graduation he worked as an Appellate Law Clerk, and with that experience began working as a plaintiff personal injury and workers compensation attorney in Belleville, IL., handling cases and serving clients primarily from Springfield throughout all of Southern Illinois including the St Louis Metro East, Madison County and Monroe County.
Eric takes great pride in the fact that he has not and will never represent an insurance company. It simply isn’t something he has ever been willing to do. He has spent his career as an injury lawyer in Belleville, Illinois leveling the playing field and making sure the folks of Southern Illinois are not taken advantage of by insurance companies or employers. His practice, even when working for other law firms for a few years following graduation, has been focused only on representing the injured.
Kirkpatrick Law is a Belleville, IL lawyer who does not charge by the hour. We only do cases on a contingent fee, meaning we don’t get paid unless you get paid. Our fee does not change just because we have to go to trial or pursue an appeal on the case. With very few exceptions, our fee is 1/3 of the recover on personal injury claims and 20% on workers compensation injuries.
KLO has never taken an attorney fee that is more than what the client receives after all is said and done. While the client is in the end responsible for expenses associated with litigation, KLO expenses are only what is charged by an outside source. Unlike some firms – and there are horror stories – KLO does not charge for things we consider to be his cost of doing business, such as in-house copies, postage or mileage.
We have always been mindful of the costs of legal services and litigation and have never engaged in a great deal of expenses where it was not needed. This can make a great deal of difference in the final amount. If you or someone you love is injured at work, please contact us at our Belleville, Illinois offices for a free initial consultation.
