THE JOB OF AN ILLINOIS PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER/

When done well, the job of an Illinois personal injury lawyer is both challenging and rewarding. Clients come to me after suffering serious injuries and being denied the payment they deserve. I have the chance to make a difference in their lives and ensure that insurance companies live up to their end of the bargain.

To win the payment that clients deserve, an attorney needs to be comfortable with confrontation. I never shy away from a fight with a bigger opponent, and my firm’s track record proves that we know how to get results.

Big companies often take advantage of people. Whether my client has been injured by a bad driver, hurt on the job or suffered harm at the hands of a healthcare provider, there is usually a company – often an insurer – that owes them money. It’s no surprise that they aren’t eager to pay up. If a company can get away with paying you nothing, they will.

As an Illinois personal injury attorney, I have spent my entire career seeking justice for my clients. I know my clients well, and I take my job seriously. If you’re owed money after being injured, you deserve a lawyer that will stand up for your rights. Schedule a free consultation with me today to learn more about your options.

AN ILLINOIS PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY WHO FIGHTS FOR YOU/

You’ve been told that life isn’t fair. We’ve all had experiences that reinforce this message, so it’s tempting to simply give up when there’s a fight against a powerful opponent like a big insurance company. I believe that fairness is worth fighting for. I have represented hundreds of injured clients and recovered millions of dollars on their behalf.

If you’ve been hurt and deserve payment, don’t give up. Let me fight for you.

How Much Does an Illinois Personal Injury Cost?/

Attorneys choose how they want to be paid. Some might charge a flat fee or ask for a portion of their fee before accepting a case. I work on a contingency fee. That means that if I don’t win your case, you pay me nothing. I not only believe in my team’s ability to win cases, I also want to be sure my clients aren’t forced to carry the costs of a legal claim if we don’t win them payment. That’s why I believe that a contingency fee is in the best interest of my personal injury clients.

There Is a Time Limit on Personal injury Claims in Illinois/

The statute of limitations is the amount of time you have available to file a personal injury claim in Illinois. After suffering the injury, you have two years to file the claim. I always tell clients that it’s in their best interest to act quickly, simply because the process can take time, and waiting for compensation might put more strain on their finances than necessary.

IN OUR CLIENTS' WORDS

What to Expect When Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit/

I handle to the day-to-day processes of your personal injury claim. This means doing the paperwork, dealing with insurance companies, conducting research and all the other steps needed to build your case.

These claims generally have one of two outcomes: They are either settled or they go to trial. While many claims are settled before a trial is needed, I find that it is best to prepare a case thoroughly as if it were going to trial. This not only ensures that your case is trial-ready, but it also leads to better settlement offers.

The length of the process varies, depending on the circumstances of your case. Some claims are resolved in weeks, while others take several months or longer. The amount you’ll be asking for also depends on the costs you’ve faced because of your injury. Personal injury claims can range from thousands to millions of dollars.

Each case is different, though the process might look something like this…

  • You file a claim.
  • The insurer responds with a letter stating their position.
  • Your attorney responds, and negotiations begin.
  • A settlement is reached, or…
  • The case goes to trial.

Throughout this process, your Illinois personal injury attorney should be working on building your case. They will be researching, interviewing witnesses, consulting experts and preparing presentations. Building a solid case is an ongoing process, and your attorney will make adjustments as the insurance company’s strategies become clear.

Why File a Personal Injury Claim?/

Few people want to file an injury claim. For most, it is the only option. Injuries are incredibly expensive. The cost of healthcare, lost income and other non-economic costs take a heavy toll on injured people.

If someone else was responsible for your injury, it’s only fair that they pay the costs. In theory, this is the reason why people have insurance; when something goes wrong, they are protected financially. In practice, insurance companies drag their heels, offer less than they should or deny people payment entirely.

People file personal injury claims in Illinois because they deserve payment. They don’t want a handout. They want the person who harmed them to be held accountable, and they want to focus on their recovery without being financially ruined in the process.

I will aggressively fight for your rights to ensure you get the compensation for your injuries you deserve.

A personal injury claim can offer payment for…

  • Medical expenses
  • Medication
  • Lost income due to time missed at work
  • Lost future income
  • Pain
  • Suffering
  • Diminished quality of life.

WHEN HIRING AN ILLINOIS PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER, YOU HAVE OPTIONS/

I don’t need to tell you that there are a ton of personal injury attorneys in Illinois that will be eager to take your case. But it’s important to know that the service you get will not be the same at every firm. Some firms aim to handle a high volume of cases and don’t have the time, resources or desire to get to know their clients and their needs.

I take a different approach. I’m motivated to fight for my clients because I know them, and I understand how important their case is to them. Representing a human being with loved ones is much different than representing just one case number in a long line of case numbers.

I won’t hand off your case to someone else. I will do the work and be available to talk to you about your case anytime.

When looking for an Illinois personal injury lawyer, remember that few will turn you away if they believe you have a valid claim, but that doesn’t mean they will all put the same amount of work into your case. I encourage you to meet with me personally, so we can discuss your case and you can see whether you feel comfortable with me and my team.

When meeting with a personal injury attorney, ask yourself these questions…/

  • Does the attorney have experience handling my type of case?
  • Has this attorney achieved victory for their clients?
  • Is the attorney straightforward in their assessment my case?
  • Do I feel comfortable trusting the attorney with my case?
