Someone’s Negligence has injured Me. What do I do?

What you do immediately following an accident or event causing your injury could impact your future and the extent of your financial burdens.

If an accident caused your injury, gather pertinent evidence from the accident scene. If your injury results from a slip and fall, make sure to complete an incident report with the property owner or management if possible.

Ask to be transported to the nearest emergency room to seek medical treatment, even if you believe your injuries are only minor. In the moments after an accident, your adrenaline is running full force.

Personal Injury AccidentElevated adrenaline might be masking a severe injury like internal organ injuries, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), or spinal damage that may not be evident for hours or days. Only a competent doctor with the best diagnostic tools can determine your injuries’ extent and provide recommendations on the treatment required to heal completely.

Law enforcement may arrive at the accident scene to document what happened, gather eyewitness testimony, and evaluate who was at fault for causing the harm. However, re-creating what happened might require an outside investigator who can reconstruct the accident scene and conduct a more in-depth interview with eyewitnesses.

Hiring a Chicago personal injury attorney can ensure you receive maximum financial compensation. In some cases, any family member who has lost a loved one can seek compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit.

Negotiating a Settlement Versus Taking the Case to Trial

Nearly all personal injury cases are resolved without a judge and jury through a negotiated financial settlement when every party agrees on an acceptable amount. Avoiding a trial presentation can save both sides the expense of paying expert witnesses and court costs while reducing the plaintiff’s (injured party) stress.

Our Chicago personal injury lawyers nearly always negotiate an appropriate settlement. However, there are times when the defendants refuse to compensate the injured party appropriately or pay for the additional costs when family members have lost a loved one through wrongful death.

Our personal injury attorneys always protect the injured’s best interests and prepare the case to go to trial when necessary. Our personal injury law firm guarantee that the services and representation we provide will ensure justice is served, and maximum financial compensation is obtained to resolve our clients’ personal injury cases.

Filing a Personal Injury Case

Car AccidentsDid you suffer an injury that was not your fault? Was the accident or event caused by the negligent, reckless, or intentional actions of other people? Are you confused about Illinois personal injury law and how to seek justice, file a lawsuit, or submit a Workers Compensation benefit claim?

The result of your personal injury has likely left you with significant pain, mounting medical expenses, and chaotic life. Many victims can no longer work while they heal from their temporary or permanent injuries. Family members who lost a loved one by another’s negligent actions may no longer have their financial provider or household caregiver.

Many injured people are lost in finding a way out of the financial burdens associated with their damages and do not understand how to receive compensation to make themselves whole again. Some victims were injured through exposure to workplace hazards but did not on how to file for workers compensation benefits.

Without sufficient financial compensation, the injured parties will likely have far less money they need to pay all their bills. How can they prove their case without substantial evidence that shows what happened and the extent of their damages? How will they gain access to the resources they need to build a case to take the claim to court?

Most Illinois personal injury cases are complex, requiring the skills of attorneys who specialize in injury cases. A lawyer can evaluate the case to determine its worth and file all the required documents in the appropriate county courthouse before the statute of limitations expires.

Personal Injury FAQs

How Long do I Have to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

State statutes regulate the amount of time an injured party must file a personal injury claim seeking financial compensation from any party responsible for causing them harm. In Illinois, the injured party (plaintiff) has two years from the time their injuries occurred.

However, with a comprehensive case evaluation, personal injury lawyers might find extenuating circumstances that extend the restricted time limit beyond twenty-four months.

Will My Personal Injury Lawsuit go to Trial?

Most cases handled by our personal injury attorneys are settled through a negotiated out-of-court settlement. Negotiating a settlement saves time and avoids uncertainty while reducing the plaintiff’s monetary risks in losing their case or costing the defendant significantly more than they can pay.

At any given time, hundreds of thousands of injury cases are waiting to be heard in front of a judge and jury in both federal and state judicial systems. Personal injury attorneys might recommend settling the case to ensure privacy and confidentiality, avoiding publicity of sensitive medical information that would become public.

Should I Give the Insurance Company Recorded Statement?

Most personal injury lawyers would agree that it’s never a good idea to provide a claims adjuster a recorded statement before seeking legal advice. Having detailed information in an oral or written form could provide the ammunition the defense needs to diminish your negotiated settlement option or to take your advantages away when presenting evidence at trial.

Is an Attorney Really Necessary to Handle My Personal Injury Lawsuit?

Many plaintiffs represent themselves in civil cases involving minimal injury and property damage. However, if the case is complicated, you or your loved ones will absolutely need a personal injury lawyer to fight your key issues, work with claims adjusters, and negotiate a substantial settlement.

Client Reviews
Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case. In addition, Jonathan was understanding and patient pertaining to any of my questions or concerns. I was very happy with the end result and I highly recommend Jonathan Rosenfeld. Michonne Proulx
Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong
This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you. Daniel Kaim
Jonathan helped my family heal and get compensation after our child was suffered a life threatening injury at daycare. He was sympathetic and in constant contact with us letting us know all he knew every step of the way. We were so blessed to find Jonathan! Giulia
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa
