Personal Injury Attorneys Committed To Pursuing Maximum Recovery
Schwulst & Roseberry, P.C., has been protecting clients’ rights since 1971. We are dedicated to helping personal injury victims and their families in wrongful death cases. Our lawyers understand the significant medical and financial hardships associated with personal injury accidents.
In Illinois, recovery in a personal injury suit involves consideration of the comparative negligence between the parties involved. Guidelines for comparative negligence place a percentage of blame on each party involved in the accident. The amount of responsibility is decided by either a judge or jury. If a judge or a jury finds you were responsible for 50% of your accident, you would not likely receive damages.
As experienced trial attorneys, we know how to effectively present the facts of your case to a judge or jury. Our extensive experience also enables us to anticipate how insurance adjusters will evaluate your case.
We Tailor Our Legal Services For Personal Injury Claims To Your Circumstances
We dedicate the necessary time, talent and resources to helping clients obtain just compensation for their injuries. Our experience enables us to evaluate your case efficiently and tailor our representation to your unique needs. Our personal injury practice includes:
• Car accidents
• Motorcycle accidents
• Bus and train accidents
• Truck accidents
• Premises liability
• Dog bites
• Wrongful death and survival actions
• Reckless driving/DUI accidents
• Insurance company liability litigation
We understand the importance of reviewing all insurance coverage available to our clients. Depending on the facts of your case, we will review:
• Uninsured motorist coverage. This coverage applies when the other driver has no insurance.
• Underinsured motorist coverage. This coverage applies when the other driver’s coverage is inadequate according to your needs.
• Third-party coverage. In some instances, such as if an individual caused your accident while in the scope of their employment, we can review third-party coverage.
Thorough Case Evaluation
Our attorneys conduct thorough case evaluations. We review police reports and witness statements to obtain facts about your accident that can help prove liability and damages. Our legal team also understands that your serious injuries – such as traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, paralysis or spinal injuries can have lasting effects on every aspect of your life. We consult with medical experts to discuss your long-term prognoses. Expert testimony can also demonstrate to a jury the serious nature of your injuries and your need for ongoing financial support.
Wrongful Death Advocacy
We are dedicated to helping the families of wrongful death victims obtain justice and damages. In Illinois, you may be able to file a survivor action, which provides compensation for the pain and suffering your loved one endured before his or her death.
It is important to discuss your claim with a qualified lawyer as wrongful death claims carry strict limitations and guidelines.
