Preventable injuries are not only physically painful and emotionally stressful, but they also cause prolonged financial hardship to injured people and their families. Even if you make a full recovery from your injuries and are able to return to work, the medical expenses related to the injuries can cause years of financial distress. When the injuries are severe enough that you are not able to return to the workforce, then an accidental injury can upend your life. Illinois law grants people injured in preventable accidents the right to seek compensation from the parties responsible for the accidents. The Chicago personal injury lawyers at Saks, Robinson & Rittenberg can help you get the money you need after suffering a financially devastating accidental injury.

In order to win a personal injury lawsuit, you must prove the following claims:
Personal injury lawsuits require a great investment of time and energy, even if you end up with a judgment or settlement that covers your financial losses. In many cases, though, it is possible for injured people to get the money they need without going to court.
