Chicago Personal Injury
Chicago residents can experience any number of calamities that may lead to the injury or death of you or a loved one. The trauma of the injury and its aftermath is often overwhelming, and it can be difficult to focus on your next steps, which should include compensation to you and your family if the injury or death occurred due to the fault of another party. As you focus on recovery and moving forward with your life, you may not want to revisit the facts of the injury, or you may not even be aware that the event or its consequences entitle you to compensation.
Even when you seek to recover compensation or damages for injury or death to you or a loved one, you can start to run into another series of roadblocks when dealing with insurance companies. Rarely do insurance companies immediately pay the requested amount of damages — the insurance business model dictates that payouts should be kept to a minimum. Therefore, you may find the facts of the incident disputed by insurance companies and other factors — even your own character — called into question. No one should have to deal with such situations without help.
Even in the face of the trauma and confusion following any type of accident resulting in injury or death, it’s important to contact a personal injury attorney in Chicago as soon as possible. Our Chicago personal injury lawyers can get started right away with assisting you in documenting and gathering facts and evidence regarding the details of your injury and accident.
It’s especially important to begin gathering this evidence for situations that may be subject to change in the near future: cleaned up after an accident, for instance, or simply a public area that will be well trafficked by people or automobiles. The closer to the time of the accident you are able to take photographs and collect other evidence, the less doubt opposing insurance companies and attorneys will be able to cast on the facts surrounding your injury.

Wrongful Dealth Lawyer in Chicago IL
In addition to injury, our Chicago wrongful death attorneys can assist you and your family in the unfortunate event of the death of a loved one as a result of fault or negligence on the part of another party.
When we consult with you on the details of your accident, we’ll explore the circumstances surrounding it to begin making a determination of what party or parties were at fault, and to what extent. These calculations are often a major part of recovering damages, and our extensive experience with these types of cases helps us make them accurately and convincingly. We also work through exactly what consequences resulted from your injury or the death of a loved one, including:
- Medical bills (including out-of-pocket and copay costs)
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Lost or decreased potential for future earnings
- Rehabilitation and medication
- Punitive damages
It can be exceedingly difficult for the layperson to determine or estimate which of these damages they are entitled to, and in what amounts. Again, our experience with these types of cases helps us mount an accurate and effective argument for the compensation that you are entitled to.
