What is a Personal Injury?

A personal injury occurs when another individual or corporation injures your body, mind, or emotional well-being. If you have been injured or otherwise harmed as a result of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your suffering. Michael J. Brennan is a personal injury attorney who focuses in:

  • Car accidents: If you have been involved in a multi-car accident, you may be eligible for financial compensation. Our firm can help you file for fair compensation.
  • Truck accidents: 16-wheeler accidents differ from car accidents and can be complex and costly. Michael J. Brennan can help you navigate cases involving trucking insurance and companies.
  • Motorcycle accidents: Motorcycle accidents can be difficult to argue without legal counsel. Our firm is highly experienced in protecting motorcyclists’ rights on the road.
  • Pedestrian accidents: Pedestrians are particularly vulnerable to accidents, and the consequences of a collision can be catastrophic. Our firm can help you recover compensation after an accident.
  • Wrongful death: If you have lost a loved one due to negligence, our firm can help you hold the responsible party accountable and recover damages for trauma and loss of income.
  • Slip and fall: Property owners have a responsibility to maintain safe premises. If you have suffered a slip and fall accident, our firm can help you recover medical costs and other damages.
  • Dog attacks: Illinois dog owners are responsible for their pets’ behavior. If you or a loved one has been injured by a dog attack, our legal team can help you file for financial compensation.
  • Bicycle accidents: The roads are a dangerous place, and cyclists are at high risk for injury. Our firm has close knowledge of bicycle laws and can help you obtain legal compensation.
  • Drug injuries: If you or a loved one has been given a defective drug or has been prescribed the wrong medicine or improper dosage, you may be eligible for financial compensation.
  • Workers’ compensation: Injuries at work aren’t just limited to catastrophic accidents. If you need help recovering medical costs, time away from work, or pain and suffering, we can help.
  • Nursing home abuse: Our loved ones deserve respectful care. If your loved one is being taken advantage of or abused, we can help you establish a claim and bring your case to court.
  • Airplane accidents: Complicated aviation laws should not prevent you from seeking damages for an airplane accident. Our firm has extensive experience litigating aviation accidents.

If you or a loved one has been the victim of someone else’s negligence, you deserve the experienced legal advice we can give. Whether you’re facing medical costs, loss of work, pain and suffering, or other associated costs, you shouldn’t have to risk financial ruin because of someone else’s actions. Filing a claim in civil court can help you recover lost wages and pay for associated expenses. Thanks to Illinois’s comparative fault laws, even if you share some responsibility for the accident, you may still be eligible for compensation if the other party is more than 50% responsible for your injury.

How An Attorney Can Help

When filing for compensation, there are a lot of moving parts, and all of the legal requirements can be daunting. If you’re alone, it can be tempting for you to give up on your claim or accept an unfair amount. A qualified personal injury attorney can make sure you get the compensation you deserve. Our team will build your compensation claim, and Michael J. Brennan will fight for a fair outcome. Your attorney will get in contact with everyone who might be involved with your claim, from insurance companies to medical professionals and make sure that your case is filed swiftly and accurately. Your attorney will also fight for you to receive the maximum amount of compensation, and help you identify what details will increase your compensation. With a personal injury lawyer on your team, you can trust that your case is in safe, knowledgeable hands.

How Do Injury Claims Work?

Personal injury falls under a type of civil law known as tort law. Tort law operates on the principle that everyone is responsible for his or her actions. Civil law, unlike criminal law, does not require that a law be broken. If a party causes harm to come to you, they can be held responsible for their actions. Sometimes an insurance company will handle this, while other times you will need to go to court. Our firm has successfully recovered large settlements out of court for our clients—we may be able to secure your compensation without ever going to trial.

In personal injury claims, we have to prove two things: liability and damages. Liability determines that the other party is at fault for your injuries. Once this is proven, we use our records to argue for damages and prove that the amount we have requested is appropriate to your pain and suffering. This may include present and future medical costs, loss of wages, diminished earning capacity, and more.
