Types of Injury Cases Our Lawyers Handle
Our Illinois personal injury lawyers handle a wide variety of personal injury cases. If your injury case is one of the following, call us immediately for help. Even if your injury was not on this list, our attorneys can likely still help you file a claim to get the financial compensation you need.
Car accidents are one of the most common types of cases injury attorneys handle. People can face mild, moderate, or serious in a car crash, and our personal injury attorneys are prepared to help you no matter how serious your injuries were. If you instead lost a loved one in a car accident, we can also help you file a wrongful death claim for compensation.
Other Auto Accidents
If you were hit by a car while on foot or while riding a bike, your case might have some additional complexities. The same is true if you were hit by a commercial driver, such as a trucker, bus driver, Uber/Lyft driver, or taxi driver. In these cases, our lawyers might be able to file a claim against the company the driver worked for to help you get full compensation.
Slip and Falls
Slip and fall injuries are one of the most common types of accidents after car accidents. While many slip and falls are not that serious, victims can still face broken bones, back injuries, head injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and other very serious injuries from a fall down injury. Talk to our Illinois personal injury lawyers right away if you faced serious injuries in a slip and fall and need help getting compensation.
Other Property Injuries
Aside from slip and falls, other injury claims under the umbrella of “premises liability claims” can also be filed. These cases are often filed for other accidents on someone else’s property, such as fires, electrocution accidents, drownings, structure collapses, railing collapses, falls from heights, and more.
Defective and Dangerous Product Injuries
If you were hurt by a defect in a product or because the product was simply too dangerous, our Illinois personal injury lawyers can help you with your claim. These claims can often award damages from the manufacturer or seller of the product and involve more than just household products. Often, pharmaceutical claims, defective auto part claims, and more fall under this category of injury claim.
Medical Malpractice Lawsuits
Suing a doctor or hospital for negligence can be a difficult process. These cases often involve difficult medical terminology and require help from experts to even file your case, let alone win it. Our Illinois personal injury lawyers can help with cases involving misdiagnosis, birth injuries, surgical errors, anesthesia errors, hospital negligence, and more.
Workplace and Construction Accidents
Victims of work injuries are often left with complex cases because of Workers’ Compensation rule and the limits they might place on their right to sue. Especially for injured construction workers – who often face very serious injuries – these cases can be difficult. Contact our experienced Illinois personal injury lawyers to help understand your rights and pursue damages for your injuries.
Wrongful Death Claims
Our Illinois personal injury lawyers help victims file injury cases for injuries that they survived, but we can also help surviving family members file claims for their deceased loved ones. These cases have additional complexities under Illinois wrongful death laws and may involve areas of damages that are paid directly to you for the harms you experienced because of the loss. We can also claim the damages that your deceased loved one would have been able to claim if they had survived the accident.
How Our Illinois Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help
One of the most important things that a lawyer can provide in an injury claim is the help that comes from experience. Our Illinois personal injury attorneys have decades of experience and have helped clients recover millions of dollars. While each case is different, our injury attorneys can apply our years of experience to help you understand what your options are and what damages you could be entitled to in your case.
Another excellent benefit to having a lawyer handle your case is that it leaves you free to focus on your recovery. Allow our Illinois personal injury lawyers to handle discussions with the insurance companies and filings with the court while you focus on physical therapy and recovery. At the end of the day, our goal is to help you get back to your life as best you can after an injury, which means giving you the time you need to heal while we focus on your financial recovery.
