Do I need a Personal Injury Lawyer ?
When seeking compensation following an injury suffered due to the negligence of others, it’s advisable to retain legal representation. That’s because a qualified DuPage County Personal Injury attorney can assess the validity of your claim. And they can advise on the best methods open to you to win compensation from those at fault.
As often happens in Civil cases, settlement is the preferred route as it spares the time and expense of going to court. That’s because cases in which negligence by a company or manufacturer is responsible for an injury can be harder to prove. They may require lengthy periods of evidentiary discovery and long hours of repeated attempts to negotiate settlements.
This means that insurers will seek to dispose of claims quickly with offers of compensation that often are inadequate given the injuries suffered and the costs incurred. They count on victims that don’t know their rights under the law or are hard pressed by financial constraints placed on them by medical bills and lost wages. Retaining a skilled team can mean the difference between adequate compensation, an inadequate settlement or none at all.
Personal injury lawyers make it easier to gather evidence, including police and medical records. They can call on experts to support your case. Their expertise in investigating, negotiating and litigating claims makes it more likely that settlements are reached that compensates you fully for your injuries. The first step is a free consultation with a member of our Personal Injury team.

Personal Injury Claim- Negotiation & Settlement Process
Frequently Asked Questions
A Personal Injury claim is made when someone else has caused damage to you or your property, either through negligence or by accident. Injuries may be physical, such as a broken arm or broken windshield. Or, they may be mental, such as post-traumatic stress disorder. A Personal Injury claim can be made against a person or a company.
If you’ve been injured by another’s failure to exercise reasonable care, you may be entitled to compensation. Our Personal Injury Lawyer will assess your situation in a free consultation to determine whether grounds exist for pursuing a Personal Injury claim.
The value of a Personal Injury claim is based on several factors, including medical expenses, lost wages, future expenses and income, the value of any damaged property and the pain and suffering you have endured and will endure as a result of being injured. Our Personal Injury Attorney will help assess the value of your Personal Injury claim in conjunction with medical professionals, insurers and other experts.
The time it takes to receive compensation is directly tied to the time it takes to resolve a Personal Injury claim. Resolution can take place upon receipt of a Letter of Demand, in negotiation with the counterparty after a Personal Injury Lawsuit has been filed with the court, in court-appointed mediation or at trial before a judge and jury. If a Personal Injury lawsuit goes to trial, it may take years to resolve.
If an insurer approaches you with a settlement offer, it is important to obtain an independent review of the sum they’re willing to pay. Our experienced Personal Injury Lawyer can assess an offer against your claim and help achieve a better outcome if the figure won’t cover your current and future costs.
Personal Injury lawsuits typically are handled on contingency, meaning that you’ll pay no fees until the suit is settled, either in negotiation or in court. Fees for Personal Injury cases average around 40 percent of the sum won in negotiation or at trial.
If you’ve been injured in an accident through no fault of your own, it is important to seek legal advice as soon as you are able in order to avoid the time constraints placed on making Personal Injury claims. The state of Illinois places a two-year window on claims involving bodily injury (physical and mental) and five years for claims involving damaged property.
