Belvidere Personal Injury Lawyers

Get back to normal – Hiring an attorney can help.

If you’ve been injured by the neglect or carelessness of someone else consider hiring our personal injury lawyers to help you get back to normal.

Getting hurt can set you back not only financially, but medically and personally. When an accident could have been avoided is when you should consider hiring a lawyer who can help you navigate the legal, and insurance systems.

Hiring a lawyer is your best first step – but it won’t cost you anything when you work with our law firm. There is NO FEE UNLESS WE WIN. We work on contingency, meaning that we only take a portion of any settlement you receive. And when you work with a personal injury lawyer settlements are much larger than fighting for your rights on your own.

Here is a Typical Car Accident Settlement Process

  • The accident occurs.
  • You seek treatment and a lawyer (we can refer you to various healthcare providers if you don’t have your own providers).
  • You work on getting better through treatment (physical recovery). Yes, this can be a time-consuming process, but we take care of everything with your insurance, and handle your property damage claim to get your vehicle fixed in as short a time period as possible.
  • We investigate your claim, and perhaps bring on an accident reconstructionist or other useful experts to build your case in preparation for a jury to hear your story.
  • When you are back to how you were prior to your accident, or as close to 100% as your doctor believes you will get, we start to compile your medical bills.
  • We then compile any of your lost wages (e.g., time missed from work for medical appointments, time lost to various treatments, and time you were out of work from the injury).
  • We then assess how your quality of life has been impacted from your accident. So, if you can no longer participate in the activities you did prior to the accident, if you can’t pick your children up anymore, or if you have problems grocery shopping, among other limitations, we start to formulate what we may be seeking in pain and suffering amounts for an accurate idea of what to ask an insurance adjuster or jury to award you.
  • We then submit what is known as a “demand” letter to the other driver’s insurance company, requesting a specific amount to avoid litigation. From there, they have the choice to accept the demand, counter offer a different amount, or reject settlement.
  • If we cannot arrive at a resolution that you are satisfied with, the next step is to pursue a trial. Steps 2-9 can occur while a lawsuit is pending. If negotiations don’t work, we move into a trial or arbitration stage of your case, in which we make an argument to a Boone County, Illinois judge, jury, or panel of arbitrators, and argue over liability (i.e., who caused your accident) and/or what a fair amount of money is to resolve your case (i.e., damages).

What if my Injuries Show up Later? Illinois Time Limits on Injury Claims

Personal Injury Lawyer Paul Marriett

Illinois sets a time limit of two years to file a personal injury lawsuit in the state’s civil court system. In most cases, this two-year time limit, known as a “statute of limitations,” begins to run on the date of the accident. Sometimes, however, a statute of limitations might run from the date that you discovered you were injured, rather than the date of the event that injured you. This later date is known as a “discovery date.”

For injury claims against a city or county, you have one year to file a lawsuit. The time limit to sue the state is generally two years, but you must file a formal claim within one year in order to sue.

If you need help we can guide you through this difficult time and alleviate some of the stress.
