Our Personal Injury Practice Areas in Evanston, IL
There are many ways to become injured in our daily lives. Whether we realize it or not, some of those ways directly or indirectly involve someone else’s negligence.
As Evanston personal injury attorneys, our job at The Kryder Law Group is to figure out who was responsible for your injury, how they were responsible, and how we can convince the insurance company—and potentially a jury—of the other party’s liability.
We have helped clients recover monetary settlements in the following situations:
We can help you recover compensation from the other driver and their insurance company if you were injured in a car accident. If the other driver broke a traffic law, drove while drunk or distracted, or engaged in other reckless behavior, we can use these facts to establish liability and fight for compensation.
When you seek the help of a medical professional, you expect your physical condition to improve, not get worse. We represent claimants who suffered an injury at the hands of a medical professional. This could include being prescribed the wrong medication or dosage, or undergoing a botched or unnecessary procedure. Depending on your situation, our legal team may be able to hold your attending doctor, healthcare provider, or medical facility liable for your losses.
Construction sites have many hazardous conditions that can lead to injuries both on and around the area. No matter how your construction site injury occurred, we will scour the scene for evidence and identify every potentially liable party, which may include the company behind the project, the job site owner, the contractor, or an equipment manufacturer. We can help you recover damages from these parties.
Slip and Fall Incidents
Many people do not realize how many falls lead to life-altering injuries. If you were injured in such an accident, our Evanston personal injury attorneys can hold the responsible parties liable for your losses. These parties may include the property owner, the property manager, the building contractor, and more.
If you are injured while on the job, you generally cannot sue your employer. However, you are not barred from taking legal action altogether. For example, if you were injured by a defective piece of equipment, you could file a lawsuit against the maker of that product. If you were intentionally injured by another coworker, you could also take that route of pursuing compensation. Either way, a lawyer can help guide you through the legal proceedings and determine a method for taking action.
Nursing Home Abuse or Neglect
If someone you love was injured or killed due to nursing home abuse or neglect, we can take action against the caregiver, the supervisor, or the facility.
If you qualify, we can help you file a wrongful death claim if a loved one died because of another party’s negligence or wrongdoing. Our Evanston injury attorneys will help you win compensation on behalf of your loved one, which could include funeral and burial expenses, loss of consortium, and various end-of-life costs.
However, according to 740 ILCS 180/2, you generally only have two years from the date of your loved one’s death to file a civil action. Failure to do so may prevent you from filing a lawsuit to recover the cost of your damages.
