When a person has suffered an injury as the result of the negligence of another, he or she may be eligible to recover financial compensation for his damages. However, for this, he or she must prove certain key elements-the duty of the other person to prevent the injury, the violation of that duty, as well as the liability of the other party. All of these elements have to be proven for you to recover compensation.
Our Chicago personal injury attorneys will review your case in order to understand all the legal issues of liability that will arise. We will identify all possible liable parties build a strong case to recover the most compensation possible.
Towards that end, we will investigate the accident, procure accident investigation reports from the police and other sources, obtain medical records, identify and locate witnesses, and put together all the other elements that will make for a successful personal injury claim. We will negotiate with the insurance company to ensure that you get the best possible settlement for your damages. However, if your insurance company is not willing to offer the settlement that you deserve, we will not hesitate to go to court to recover your legal rights.
Remember, you can recover damages not just for your financial losses, but also the mental trauma and the emotional injuries that you have suffered. It’s important to not just sign away your rights after an injury- our Chicago personal injury lawyers have helped Oak Lawn, Illinois residents who have suffered injuries over the years recover compensation for their losses.
