Helping People Injured Due To The Negligence Of Others

A personal injury case is defined by an injury that happens as the result of negligence or careless acts on the part of another person or entity. For example, when someone cuts down a tree without a proper guiding rope and the falling tree injures another person, it can be grounds for a personal injury case. The person who cut down the tree was negligent in failing to take proper safety precautions and can be liable for the injury caused. There are many situations, which arise and cause injuries and/or damages. The best way to tell if you are entitled to compensation is by talking with an attorney.

Getting Fair Compensation For Motor Vehicle Accident Victims

Motor vehicle accidents involving cars, trucks, bicycles and/or pedestrians can have a devastating lifelong impact on your physical, emotional and financial health. While this may be your first serious collision, it’s definitely not ours. If you’ve been seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident that wasn’t your fault, we can help get you the medical care and financial compensation you deserve.

We have experience with all types of motor vehicle collisions, including:

  • Fatal car collisions
  • 18-wheeler and commercial truck collisions
  • Motorcycle collisions
  • Boating collisions
  • ATV collisions
  • Metra and CTA collisions
  • Bicycle collisions
  • Aviation collisions

The insurance industry will make it extremely difficult for you to receive this compensation on your own. They’re looking out for their own best interests, which may lead them to deny your claim, delay payment or offer you a fast, small settlement that doesn’t adequately compensate you. You need an experienced car lawyer who understands how to manage these obstacles and can be your advocate. Contact us today to discuss how your accident has affected your life, your family and your ability to earn a living. All motor vehicle accident cases are handled on a contingency basis, which means you don’t pay us unless we recover a settlement for you.

Representing People Injured In Slip-And-Fall Accidents

Property owners have the duty to protect people who are lawfully on their property from getting injured by dangerous conditions. These cases are premises liability cases and involve injuries that happen in public places, stores and retail areas and private property. Dangerous conditions that are often the basis of premises liability claims include:

  • Poorly maintained walkways, stairways, porches or balconies that caused a fall or a trip
  • Snowy or icy conditions causing a fall
  • Inadequate lighting leading to an accident
  • Injuries caused by a malfunctioning or lack of smoke detectors

If you or a loved one was injured on someone else’s property due to unsafe conditions, preserving evidence and careful examination of the premises is crucial to determining who should be held accountable. Contact us right away so we can protect your interests.
