Injury Lawyers Near Me

When an injured person arrives at a hospital emergency room, money is the last thing on anyone’s mind. The hospital staff is focused on treating the patient’s injuries promptly. After you get released from the hospital after treatment, your focus is on recovering from your injuries. You are grateful that the injuries are not worse than they are and that your family and friends are with you. When the medical bills start to arrive, though, reality sets in. The financial hardship of a serious injury can be as hard to live with as long-lasting physical symptoms. The Chicago personal injury lawyers at Saks, Robinson, and Rittenberg can help you exercise your right to get money from the people legally responsible for your injuries to compensate you for your injury-related financial losses.

How Do Personal Injury Lawsuits Work?

Not every accidental injury qualifies for a personal injury lawsuit. You can only recover compensation in a personal injury lawsuit if a person or entity that had a legal responsibility to prevent the accident failed to prevent it. You must prove the following things in order to win your case:

  • The defendant had a duty of care, which is a legal responsibility not to expose others to the risk of injury.
  • The defendant breached the duty of care by causing the accident or failing to prevent it.
  • Your injuries occurred as a result of the defendant’s breach of the duty of care.
  • You suffered financial losses, including but not limited to medical bills, because of the injuries.

The Chicago personal injury attorneys at Saks, Robinson, and Rittenberg can help you make these claims persuasively.

Types of Personal Injury Cases in Illinois

You can file a personal injury lawsuit for many different types of accidental injuries resulting from many different causes. These are some of the kinds of accidents and injuries for which injured people can recover damages:

  • Car, truck, motorcycle, or bus accidents
  • Boating accidents
  • Slip and fall
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Bone fractures
  • Work accidents
  • Dog bites
  • Product liability, such as faulty car parts or dangerous pharmaceutical drugs
  • Burn injuries

Can You Get the Money You Need Without Going to Court?

Lawsuits that go to trial or settle for millions of dollars are the ones that make the news headlines, but they do not represent the majority of cases that Chicago personal injury lawyers handle. In many cases, the parties legally responsible for accidents are required to carry insurance that will pay enough to cover your accident-related medical expenses. For example, if the vehicle that struck you belongs to a company, commercial liability insurance can easily cover your claim. Even in accidents involving personal vehicles, sometimes all you need is a lawyer to negotiate with the insurance company to get you a big enough settlement.
