Make It Better
For over 31 years, I have helped the people of Chicago and its surrounding suburbs to move forward with their lives after suffering an injury or to relieve the overwhelming burden of debt—two of the most stressful experiences a person can experience. I have devoted my practice to these two types of personal crisis and have successfully represented many individuals and business within these two umbrella areas of the law. At the end of the day, my ultimate goal is to protect you and your interests and to help you “make things better.”
For whatever reason, your life has taken an unexpected turn. Perhaps you have been injured in an accident at little or no fault of your own. Maybe you have lost an important person in your life. Maybe you have been injured at work. Or maybe you are drowning in debt and unable to overcome the burden of debt. It is my job to help you get your life back on track as much as possible, so you can begin to enjoy life again.
What separates me from other attorneys is the time and attention I give each person who walks through my door. I am your lawyer, I will be your lawyer from beginning to end. I am a solo practitioner and have been ever since I began my professional career, which means I am the lawyer working on your case, along with my support staff. Unlike other larger or high-volume firms, I am not hidden behind layers of administration. I am professional and thorough and understanding of your needs. I will actively listen to you, offer you sound legal advice and guide you through the legal process and options, so you leave my office in better shape than when you came in.
Injury Attorney in Chicago, IL
When someone else—company, institution or individual—is partially or fully responsible for an injury you have suffered, you deserve and have the right to financial compensation for that injury or damages you suffered. If you have been injured in an automobile accident, a work-related accident or another type of accident, in or near Chicago, Illinois, I will help you receive the compensation you deserve so you can move forward with your life.
It is important to know time is very important when it comes to injury cases. The State of Illinois has specific time limits to pursue these cases. In other words, you must pursue your case against the responsible party, within the allowed time period, otherwise, your right to compensation is lost. After this time is up, you will no longer be able to bring a claim or suit against the responsible party. These time limits may vary depending upon the type of accident and who was involved in the accident. Therefore, it is essential you contact an injury attorney right after an accident to see if you are entitled to compensation for your damages.
There are several types of compensation to which you may be entitled, including current medical expenses, pain and suffering, emotional distress, lost wages or income, future medical expenses and care and future lost earnings. Depending upon your unique situation, we may be able to secure compensation for one or more of these injury-related effects.
Some of the more common questions clients have asked, after being injured in an accident are:
I can’t work; can you help me pay my bills?
I can’t come to you due to my injury; can you come to me?
I think I was partially responsible for my accident; can I still file a lawsuit?
Can I receive compensation for emotional trauma?
The short answer to all of these questions is “yes.” For more thorough answers, be sure to follow the links to my FAQ section.
