Chicago Personal Injury Lawyers

Chicago Personal Injury Lawyers

Suffering an injury that was caused by someone else’s negligence can be especially difficult. The first hurdle is figuring out what to do and how to protect yourself – while you’re in this emotionally and physically compromised and injured state. Fortunately, you don’t have to just wait and see what happens or attempt to tackle the matter on your own. In fact, a dedicated Chicago personal injury lawyer is standing by to help.

Common Personal Injury Claims

There are all kinds of negligence out there in the world, which can lead to a nearly limitless variety of personal injury claims. Most, however, can be classified into basic categories, including the following:

  • Traffic accidents, including car, truck, motorcycle, bike, and pedestrian accidents
  • Accidents on the job, including construction accidents (workers’ compensation)
  • Slip and falls (premises liability)
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect 
  • Defective products (product liability)
  • Wrongful death

What if I Can’t Afford a Personal Injury Lawyer?

You’re facing mounting medical bills and may have to stay off the job for an extended period, so it’s only natural to be concerned with how you’re going to afford to pay a personal injury lawyer. The fact is, however, that reputable personal injury lawyers work on what is called a contingency basis. This means that they don’t get paid unless you prevail with either a settlement from the insurance company or a judgment from the court. In the end, you’re far more likely to be compensated fairly with a personal injury lawyer in your corner, and there is no need to concern yourself with the expense upfront. 

You Are Owed a Duty of Care

When you head out in your car, you owe other motorists a duty of care that comes down to following the rules of the road, and other drivers owe you the same. This duty of care extends to store and business owners and managers who are responsible for maintaining their properties in reasonably safe repair – to allow for the safe passage of patrons like you. Your employer is similarly responsible for maintaining a reasonably safe work environment. When someone who owes you a duty of care fails to uphold this important responsibility, you have a legal remedy in the form of a personal injury claim. 

Your Damages

The physical, financial, and emotional damages associated with a serious injury acquired as a result of someone else’s negligence are often significant, including:

  • Medical Cost, which can be ongoing
  • Lost wages, which can reverberate into your future
  • Emotional and physical pain and suffering, which can represent the most difficult hurdle you face
