Personal Injuries Can Be Life-Altering, Know How to Handle Them

Every year, roughly 6 million car accidents occur around the United States, injuring some 3 million Americans. According to the statistics, about 2/3rd of these individuals’ injuries will never fully heal, serving as a permanent hindrance that will completely change their way of living. As Chicago car accident lawyers, we understand that the effects of traffic fatalities and traumatic injuries are diverse and far-reaching, deleteriously affecting individuals, families, and communities alike.

Unfortunately, head injuries, nerve damage, spinal cord paralysis, broken bones, or even losing the use of a limb are all very real outcomes in violent automobile accidents. For individuals who have spent their lives pursuing in depth knowledge related to fields like business, technology, or medicine, a head injury could prevent them from returning to their job, and in jobs that require physical labor or exertion, virtually any serious injury could mean losing thousands of dollars in wages. This is just one example of the many burdens that victims must deal with, and it is also illustrates why choosing the right law firm matters when pursuing a lawsuit.

Together, our personal injury lawyers possess over 130 years of legal knowledge and experience. We are proud of the diverse collection of talent found within our law firm because this directly translates to our success in securing the best possible results for every client we take on. We know that for victims, the most important and pressing matter is getting their medical bills, insurance costs, lost wages, and future healthcare expenses covered, and since 1992, our staff has helped thousands of individuals do just that.

In one of our most recent cases, our attorneys represented a 27-year-old man who had suffered serious injuries in a Gold Coast pedestrian accident. In this case, a Chicago City employee had lost control of his vehicle and swerved onto a sidewalk, striking our client and three other individuals. In a lawsuit, our lawyers were able to prove that the worker had been operating his vehicle while under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident, leading to a $2.4 million verdict for our client and his family.
