Illinois Personal Injury Lawyer

What Is a Personal Injury Claim or Lawsuit?

A personal injury claim or lawsuit provides a way for an injured person to receive compensation for losses caused by the carelessness or negligence of another. The injury may be due to the intentional or unintentional act of another.

We are committed to protecting ordinary people like you and if you are injured due to someone else’s carelessness, negligence, fault or wrongdoing, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, including, payment for medical bills to treat your injury, time off from work due to inability to work from your injuries, pain and suffering, mental anguish, property loss and for any permanent disability you are left with from the injury.

There are time limits on pursuing a personal injury claim. Delaying may jeopardize your right to receive any compensation.

Whether you have been injured in a car accident, motorcycle accident, bicycle accident, a medical professional’s actions or omissions or injured on someone’s property, we are pleased to review your matter and provide you with an honest opinion, at no cost to you.

What Is a Work Place Claim or Worker’s Compensation Claim?

Falling objects, being exposed to toxic fumes, equipment or machinery that is improperly maintained, or dangerously slippery floors are a few of the many reasons work-related accidents occur and lead to employee injury.

A workplace claim, also known as a worker’s compensation claim is when you are injured in the workplace or develop a job-related illness due to the work environment. If you are injured while working or while in the workplace, as an employee, you may be entitled to have your medical bills and expenses paid and to also receive temporary disability payments for the period of time you cannot work due to your workplace injury. Once you have been released from medical care, in addition to having your medical bills and costs paid and receiving disability payments, you may also be entitled to compensation for any permanent injury you are left with, following the workplace injury.

There is a process to legally remove debt burdens from your life and to move forward to rebuild credit and obtain financial freedom and independence. We use the bankruptcy laws to help people get out of debt. The bankruptcy laws are complicated and we provide the experience and knowledge to help clients understand and navigate through the bankruptcy process.

Chapter 7

Chapter 7 bankruptcy gets rid of qualifying debt and allows our clients to get a fresh start, debt-free. For most people, Chapter 7 is the best option to get out of debt and move forward, without losing their home or car or having their wages or bank account seized by a creditor. Client will then be able to immediately build their credit and often are able to gain new credit and purchase a vehicle, since they are now debt-free and qualify for new credit.

Chapter 13

Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows you to address your debt situation by making monthly payments over a period of time. This bankruptcy is like a repayment plan, where creditors receive monthly payments, over a period of time, while allowing you to live your life, keeping your home, car and other assets safe from creditors.
