Once a rich German farming community, Skokie became more of a residential suburban village after World War II. With a diverse population of well over 65,000 residents, many enjoy the attractions in parks in the community. This includes the North Shore Center of Performing Arts, Symphony Orchestra, Northlight Theater, and the Illinois Holocaust Museum.

The community has a strong economic base founded on many health science jobs, retail commerce and strong manufacturing. Pfizer, North Shore University Health System, and the Skokie Hospital are the main employers in town. This beautiful community has become highly populated in the last few decades, with a recent rise in personal injury cases filed in Cook County.

Hiring Skokie Personal Injury Attorneys

As a suburb of Chicago, Skokie has experienced a rise in truck accidents, where semi-truck trailers cause serious accidents with injuries. Eighteen-wheeler accidents can be catastrophic, causing serious injuries or even death.

Receiving Compensation For Injuries & Damage To Property

Anytime a victim is seriously injured in a semi-truck accident, it is essential they receive enough financial compensation to handle all of their ongoing and future expenses. Skilled Skokie personal injury lawyers work hard to ensure that their client receives the full amount of they are compensation their entitled to, including money for:

  • Hospital bills
  • Medical expenses for all injuries related to the accident
  • Any major or minor damage to the motor vehicle involved along with any damaged property
  • Past, current and future lost wages directly resulting from the injury
  • Physical, mental and emotional pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages through the court system to punish the driver and/or the driver’s employer for actions or inactions that caused the accident.
Developing the Claim: Every Case Must Be Prepared As Though The Case Is Headed To Trial

Time is always of the essence when filing a claim or lawsuit in a semi-truck accident. This is because Illinois tort law has an established statute of limitations based on the type of accident, and the length of time to file necessary paperwork. Because of that, it is essential to hire the skills of experienced Skokie personal injury attorneys as soon as possible.

Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers can develop an effective plan or strategy for handling the case. The lawyers will work directly with the claims adjuster through the negotiation process to provide an adequate out-of-court settlement. In some incidences, the case may need to go to trial, which can be an wide-ranging and expensive process. In any event, the attorney will need to complete interviews and depositions along with possibly reconstructing the scene of the accident.

Fortunately, reputable personal injury attorneys work on contingency. This means that through a contingency agreement, the victim will pay no upfront fees, and the attorney will only receive payment for their services after an award at trial, or when a settlement has been reached out of court.

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.
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, Google User
