How Our Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help
After a serious injury, unpleasant accident, or even a deep personal loss, you may be wondering how taking legal action is going to help anything. Unfortunately, nothing we do can change what happened. Nevertheless, you may be facing some difficult financial realities as a result of your injuries. Personal injury law is designed to help you cope with these hardships by ascribing liability to the party or parties that harmed you and recovering compensation on your behalf.
A successful personal injury lawsuit can result in damages for:
- Your medical bills
- Any rehabilitative care you need
- Time off of work
- Changes to your earning potential
- Changes to your quality of life
- Pain and suffering
- And more
In some cases, you may also be entitled to punitive damages, which are meant to punish the wrongdoer and give you additional financial comfort. In cases of wrongful death, damages can also cover the costs of your loved one’s funeral, burial, and lost earning potential.
Call us today to learn how you can pursue maximum compensation with our Hazel Crest personal injury attorney.

While many accidents and injuries are covered by liability insurance, you will still need to prove fault and negotiate a fair settlement. If the responsible parties refuse to cooperate, we may need to go to court, as well. At any stage, the key to a successful personal injury lawsuit is proving liability, which usually means proving negligence.
To prove negligence, you must show:
- The person who harmed you (the defendant) owed you a duty of care
- The defendant breached that duty
- You were injured
- Your injury is a direct result of the defendant’s breached duty of care
We prove the above elements by thoroughly investigating your claim and compiling evidence, which might consist of your medical records, a police report, and pictures of the scene of the accident. Once we present the facts, the other party gets an opportunity to respond.
Many times, the defendant will respond with a generous settlement offer. In personal injury law, most parties, and especially insurance companies, want to avoid lawsuits, so having an attorney on your side can make all the difference.
