What Should I Do After An Accident?

There are a variety of situations where people in and around Chicago may suffer injuries. When an injury is serious, it can affect multiple aspects of a person's life. Medical treatment can be very costly, and it may involve emergency care, hospitalization, surgery, and multiple forms of ongoing therapy. An injury may also impact a person's ability to work, and it may result in temporary disabilities during a recovery period or permanent limitations on certain types of activities. Addressing these issues can be difficult no matter the situation, but when someone else was responsible for an injury, victims will often struggle to determine how to proceed.

When injuries are caused by a person's negligent actions, victims may be able to take legal action to pursue compensation for the damages they have suffered.

We understand the problems that victims and their loved ones often experience in these situations, and we are dedicated to helping them receive the financial assistance they need and deserve. We have a track record of success, and we have obtained numerous verdicts and settlements of hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars.

Legal Assistance With Multiple Types of Injury Cases in Chicago

When serious injuries occur because of the negligence of a person or company, victims may be entitled to receive compensation for their damages. We work to help victims pursue compensation for injuries involving:

  • Car accidents - Motor vehicle collisions are some of the most common causes of injuries, and they occur regularly on the busy streets and highways in and around Chicago. Auto accidents are usually caused by driver negligence, which may include traffic violations such as speeding, cell phone use and other forms of distracted driving, or drunk driving. Dangerous roads or highways may also be a factor in these cases, especially when road construction is being performed or when intersections or highway interchanges were not designed safely.
  • Truck accidents - Collisions involving tractor-trailer trucks, delivery trucks, and other commercial vehicles are likely to result in serious injuries for people in other vehicles. Commercial truck accidents may be caused by a variety of factors, including driver fatigue, equipment failure, or unsecured or falling cargo. Truck drivers or trucking companies may be held liable for injuries that occur because of negligence.
  • Pedestrian accidents - Chicago sees high levels of pedestrian traffic, and people on foot are at risk of severe injuries if they are struck by drivers who failed to act safely. These injuries may occur because drivers violate traffic laws, such as by running red lights, or pedestrians may be put at risk due to dangerous roads that do not provide safe areas for people to walk.
  • Premises liability - Property owners or tenants may be held liable for injuries suffered by visitors who were legally allowed to be on a property. These cases may involve slip and fall accidents, dog bites, or other injuries caused by hazards that were not addressed properly.
  • Wrongful death - The surviving spouse or dependent children of a person who was killed by someone else's negligence may receive compensation for multiple types of damages, including loss of income and services, loss of companionship, grief and mental anguish, and expenses related to a funeral or burial/cremation.
