PEORIA PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER
Our Peoria personal injury lawyer Jeff Green knows that whether because of a car accident, a defective product or simple carelessness, personal injury cases start well before litigation and suit are filed.
For this reason, victims need an experienced personal injury trial attorney. Litigation is full of pitfalls for those who do not regularly handle such cases. They begin early in a case while the injured person is still seeking medical advice and attention.
Each injury should be approached as if the case will have to be decided by a trial before a judge or jury. That requires a seasoned trial attorney who knows the process and does not fear to file suit and take it to trial.
What You Need to Know about Dealing with Insurance Companies/
After you are seriously injured, you should notify your insurance company. Cooperate with them. But if it is their duty to offer you compensation and their offer is lower than the amount you deserve, you are not required to accept this offer and should contact a lawyer.
We have a record of winning and have helped hundreds of clients get the compensation they deserve. Find out why so many who were injured count on our firm for aggressive representation.
If you are contacted by a representative from another person’s insurance company with requests to make a statement, you are under no obligation to say anything at all.
Anything you say will likely be used by this “opponent” agency to refuse compensating you fairly, if at all. If contacted, you need to speak with a personal injury lawyer who will deal with all opposition to your legal damage claims and free you from this irritating, and risky, task.
Most insurance companies will deny responsibility. And they will prepare well for their legal defense of the injury.
Common insurance-company tactics include claiming that the injury is another’s fault; that it is unrelated to the negligent acts of the wrongdoer; or that the injury either existed before the accident or was false and exaggerated.
How Our Peoria Personal Injury Attorney Can Help with Your Injury Claim/
Lawyers manage the many necessary details involved in personal injury claims. They file paperwork, conduct investigations, consult expert witnesses, research the law and communicate with the opposing side’s insurance and legal representatives.
These skills enable Peoria attorney Jeff Green to maximize your chances of receiving the full and fair compensation to meet your needs. Without a personal injury lawyer, you will likely end up receiving much less than you need to cover your actual damages.

Who Should Be Sued for My Injuries?/
Anyone who is at fault in any way for causing your injury can be sued for damages. Your attorney’s investigators – sometimes in conjunction with law enforcement’s investigation –will ultimately assign blame. Depending on the circumstances, some investigations can take months to complete.
Should I Feel Bad When I Sue Someone?/
When you file an injury lawsuit, all you are doing is rightfully trying to recover just compensation from them for damages caused by their negligent actions. Most of the time, the defendant is represented by a liability insurance company which ultimately pays the damages owed you, either through a settlement agreement or at trial if a settlement cannot be reached between your lawyer and the insurance carrier.
DEFINING NEGLIGENCE AND DETERMINING FAULT/
Negligence is the failure to take reasonable care to avoid causing injury or loss to another person. Therefore, an injured plaintiff must prove that:
- The one who caused the injury owes a duty of care to the victim. Some “duties” are legally higher than others.
- If the defendant’s behavior or actions did not meet the duty owed the victim, it is called “breach” of duty.
- This breach is then compared to behavior which a reasonable person would have in the same situation, or could have foreseen would be injurious. If there is negligence, it is viewed as the cause of the accident.
- As a result of that “causation,” the injured plaintiff/victim has the right to seek financial damages compensation from the negligent defendant.
