Personal Injury Claims in Illinois
Personal injury cases can involve many circumstances. For example, if you are injured in a car accident due to another driver's reckless behavior, you may have a personal injury case. Essentially, the critical element to all personal injury cases is negligence.
Negligence is a legal term used to describe the neglect or willful ignorance of ethical practices, basic safety guidelines, or the duty of care. When one person or business entity does not take the safety of others seriously, and someone is injured as a result, they are negligent.
One of the most straightforward examples of negligence is medical malpractice. Healthcare providers have a professional and ethical obligation to correctly use their years of medical training to improve their patients' health and well-being. If a nurse or doctor fails to promote ethical medical practices or cuts corners during a procedure, they may be held liable for any resulting injuries or death.
Other personal injury cases include the following:
- Truck accidents
- Dog bites
- Premises liability
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Workplace accidents
- Slips and falls
- Nursing home abuse
- Birth injuries
- And more

We prove our dedication by working tirelessly to investigate the minute details of your circumstances to build a solid case on your behalf.
What Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Do?
There is more involved in personal injury cases than you might assume. The critical point of any personal injury case is proving liability/negligence. As explained in the previous section, negligence is when someone ignores or fails to follow safety guidelines, and someone else is injured as a result.
Liability is a legal term for responsibility. If a grocery store is responsible for alerting customers of unsafe conditions, they are liable for any lapses or mistakes that lead to injury. Attorneys must prove that negligence was a contributing factor to the injury and that someone is responsible for the accident.
If you are injured on commercial property, you may face stiff opposition from the company's legal team. Grocery store chains, construction companies, and other midsize to large businesses often have access to high-powered attorneys and bottomless budgets. Building a solid case against another party with immense resources is nearly impossible without the help of an experienced attorney.
The legal system is highly complex, but a skilled lawyer can guide you through the process and help you pursue the compensation you deserve.
