If you have been injured in an accident, you could have a claim for significant financial compensation. Victims of vehicle collisions, slips and falls, and other accidents often suffer severe injuries – and in many cases they do not realize the full extent of their physical, financial, and emotional harm. At Barrick, Switzer, Long, Balsley & Van Evera, LLP, we use our experience in complex litigation to help personal injury victims fight for just compensation. If you have a claim, we can fight to make sure you receive the compensation you deserve.
Types of Accident Cases We Handle
In most cases, the key to recovering compensation is to prove that someone else’s negligence caused (or at least contributed to) your injuries. If it appears that you have a claim, we will conduct a thorough investigation to identify all of the parties that may be responsible for your losses. At Barrick, Switzer, Long, Balsley & Van Evera, LLP, our attorneys represent individuals throughout Illinois who have been injured due to:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Public transportation accidents
- Nursing home negligence
- Medical malpractice
- Dangerous premises
- Defective products
- Slips and falls
- Workplace accidents (including construction site accidents)
These are just examples. If you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury, a spinal cord injury, broken bones, soft tissue damage, or any other serious injury in an accident in Northern Illinois, we encourage you to contact us promptly for a free consultation about your legal rights.
Personal Injury FAQs
Q: How much compensation can I recover for my injury?
No attorney will be able to answer this question for you without gaining a detailed understanding of what happened and the extent of your injuries. However, what we can tell you is that, as a general rule, accident victims in Illinois can recover compensation for their medical bills (current and future), lost income (current and future), pain and suffering, and other financial and non-financial losses.
Q: How long do I have to file a personal injury claim in Illinois?
In most cases, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Illinois is to years from the date of the accident. However, this is not a universal rule, and to improve your chances of securing a quick financial settlement you should contact an attorney as soon as possible.
Q: How much will it cost to hire an attorney to represent me?
At Barrick, Switzer, Long, Balsley & Van Evera, LLP, we handle personal injury claims on a contingency-fee basis. This is what you may have heard referred to as, “no recovery, no fee.” If we help you secure financial compensation, we will retain a percentage of your recovery as the fees for our services.
