Why File a Claim?
After an accident, you may just want to move on with your life. While we understand this instinct, we also understand that moving on with your life is not always as easy as it sounds. You may need time and medical attention to recover properly, and those necessities do not come for free.
Filing a personal injury claim can help you access the resources you need to recover. A successful settlement or verdict can help you afford:
- Present and future medical expenses
- Rehabilitative care
- Missed wages
- Decreased earning potential
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
In cases of extreme negligence, you may also be entitled to punitive or exemplary damages. These damages are designed to punish and make an example of the person who harmed you, so others do not exhibit similar negligent and harmful behavior in the future.
Winning a personal injury case can help you secure your future and gain a sense of justice. Our Tinley Park personal injury attorney can help.

How Do You Win a Personal Injury Claim?
Personal injury claims are based on negligence, so we have to prove the person who harmed you (the defendant) was negligent in order to win. We do this by gathering all the evidence of your accident and showing that:
- The defendant owed you a duty of care
- The defendant breached that duty
- You (the plaintiff) were injured
- Your injury is a result of the defendant’s breach
In car accidents, for example, we do not have to prove that the defendant owed you a duty of care because all licensed drivers in Tinley Park owe a duty of care to those around them. We do have to prove that the defendant was careless, though, which we usually accomplish by proving a behavior like drunk or distracted driving. If the defendant was driving drunk or texting while driving and caused an accident, this should be enough to show that you were injured by their carelessness. Sometimes, however, the defendant’s lawyers will try to deny liability by claiming you had a pre-existing injury or pointing out flaws in your driving.
Our team has your best interests at heart, and we are dedicated to proving the facts of your case. No matter what kind of case you are dealing with, we will fight for you.
