It depends on what the contract is for. Generally, the answer is "no," unless the contract provides for the payment of attorneys' fees if one party breaches. However, there is an Illinois law that an employer has to pay attorneys' fees on a suit to collect wages, provided that proper notice is given prior to suit. So, if the contract is for wages, you could get attorneys' fees. Since the question is asked in "independent contractors" I doubt that what you would be suing for would be wages.
