There’s a popular misconception that personal injury lawyers are expensive. That may be true for other firms, but not ours. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, meaning we can start working on your case at no cost. You don’t pay retainers or hourly fees, either. We get paid from the money we recover for you.
If we don’t win your case, you don’t pay our attorney’s fees. We are confident in our ability to settle your personal injury claim.
Compensable losses in your personal injury or wrongful death case could comprise:
You could be eligible for additional types of losses.
It can be difficult to figure out how much your personal injury case could be worth, as it depends on a variety of factors, including:
To understand the value of your case, we encourage you to discuss your situation with our injury team. While there are no guarantees, past verdicts can offer some insight into what constitutes a fair insurance settlement or court award.
The steps that you take immediately after suffering an injury can have an impact on your ability to take legal action in the future. The following are only recommendations. However, they could mean the difference between a successful case and paying for your own losses. You should consider:
It is critical to seek medical treatment after a personal injury, regardless of whether you believe you have been seriously injured. The fact is that some injuries can take hours or days to become apparent.
If you wait to seek medical treatment until the symptoms worsen, you lose the ability to properly document your injuries.
If you were injured at a department store, notify the store’s management. If you were hurt in a car accident, you may be required to notify law enforcement. By reporting your accident, you begin a paper trail that can be used to support your allegations.
If any of the following come into your possession, keep them. They could be used to verify the cost of your damages. Documents to keep include:
You don’t want to leave any money on the negotiating table when your case concludes. By keeping track of your damages, we can assign an appropriate value to your claim.
Our goal is to reach a suitable settlement outside of the courtroom. Going to trial can be time-consuming. Per the American Bar Association (ABA), in many instances, personal injury cases are settled through insurance negotiations.
However, our team of personal injury lawyers is prepared to take your case to trial. We will present all available evidence, present your argument before a judge and jury, and cite state law. While your case unfolds, we will continue negotiating with the insurer. If they decide to offer fair compensation, you can accept that money, and we will drop the case.
Even if you don’t intend on filing a lawsuit, it’s always good to be prepared. One way to do that is to understand the statute of limitations. According to 735 ILCS 5/13-202, you generally have two years to file your suit. You have the same period to file your wrongful death case.
By connecting with our team, not only can we evaluate this deadline, but we can also file your case’s paperwork within the appropriate timeline. By failing to file your case on time, you could lose the right to seek damages.
The courts would dismiss your case with prejudice, meaning you can never file it again––no matter how compelling your case is.
You have a right to hire a Chicago personal injury lawyer when you have experienced an injury at the hands of someone else or due to their negligence. You have every right to expect personal safety, especially in businesses, public spaces, and private residences.
