Having a personal injury attorney in your corner is crucial to coping with medical expenses, property damage, and other costly obligations stemming from the injury.
Our goal is to help you heal physically and emotionally in battling for the compensation you deserve.
What is a “Personal Injury”?
In the legal sphere, personal injury refers to cases in which one person suffers from harm where someone else is responsible. The victim could be entitled to compensation from the responsible party.
There are several scenarios where personal injury laws apply, including:
Accidents: The victim is injured as a result of someone else’s negligent behavior. Examples include car accidents, medical malpractice, slip and fall accidents, etc.
Willful Acts: The victim is injured by the defendant’s intentional conduct. Examples include assault and battery, domestic abuse, etc.
Defective Products: The victim has been injured due to a faulty product. Examples generally include product liability claims.
Defamation: The victim’s reputation has been compromised by another individual’s statement.
A personal injury lawyer seeks fair compensation from the responsible party on behalf of the injured person(s). Fair compensation can help cover the various expenses incurred from hospital bills, property damage, and a myriad of incidental costs.
In Illinois, families often claim thousands of dollars in settlements after unfair injuries. The state allows a case to be presented to a judge as long as the claim takes place within two years of the date of the accident.
If you have been the victim of an injury – of which you are not to blame – look into the services of a personal injury lawyer to find out what kind of compensation you may be entitled to.

The thought of pursuing justice for your injury can be intimidating. However, the process isn’t as terrifying as you might think. A trained personal injury attorney will walk you through the entire process to understand your situation and decide what the next moves are.
