How do I know if I should contact a personal injury attorney in Chicago?

Dedicated Personal Injury Attorneys Serving Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, and Will Counties

Bad accidents happen to innocent people every day, and they cover a wide variety of issues, from car accidents, to being injured during surgery, to our loved ones being neglected in a nursing home, slipping and falling on a wet floor in a store, etc. Everything and anything that involves another person’s negligence or intentional act—when it results in harm—is covered under the concept of “personal injury.”

Regardless of what exactly happens in the injuries incident, things can get confusing. We purchase insurance because we assume that, when accidents happen (especially car accidents), our insurance company will be there for us to cover it. However, especially when it comes to complicated cases that involve multiple injuries and medical bills, sometimes you will find that your insurance company is not meeting your needs, and you may need to contact a personal injury attorney instead of trying to handle it all on your own.

Our Chicago personal injury attorneys have over 35 years experience evaluating potential personal injury and wrongful death actions. Equipped with our knowledge of the laws that protect victims, if you need our assistance, we will discuss your situation and your legal options with you to determine if you have a case to pursue. Contact us today for a free consultation and we can get started explaining your options.

What Is A Personal Injury?

Personal injuries can result from the mistakes of individuals or professionals such as truck drivers, doctors, nurses, dentists, nursing home workers, pharmacists and home health workers. Victims of personal injuries and the families of those wrongfully killed are entitled to seek fair compensation for their injury or loss. Wrongdoers must be held accountable to for their actions, and lawsuits help prevent future negligence from occurring.

Sometimes, like trying to handle your own medical condition, it can be tricky to try and figure out your own personal injury claim. While simple issues—such as minor car damage—can sometimes be handled without the assistance of professionals in the field, complicated medical conditions (as well as complicated personal injury claims) almost always require the assistance of an experienced professional.

Why & When Should I Work With A Legal Professional?

It is important to note that individuals who have been harmed are more likely to receive a larger settlement if they have legal assistance. Trying to handle personal injury issues can be especially complicated if the individual who harmed you is unresponsive, uninsured, denies liability, etc. In these types of circumstances, especially if you have medical bills to cover, it can be safer to work with an experienced personal injury attorney to ensure that you have a better chance at receiving the compensation that you need to cover your bills, lost wages, and other expenses.

Taking Action

If you are injured or a loved one has died as a result of someone else’s mistakes, you may have a personal injury or wrongful death claim. We understand that you may be nervous about taking legal action. Most of our clients have never been involved in a lawsuit before. Our job is to make the process easy for you. We understand the laws and know how to best navigate the legal system to receive maximum compensation for you.

We also operate on a contingency basis, so you do not pay your attorney until you receive compensation. Consultations are completely free and do not obligate you to hire our firm, so there is no risk in calling. In other words, the attorneys at Levin & Perconti will not accept your case unless we are confident that we can recover compensation for you.
