What types of accident claims do your Carlinville attorneys handle?

Our experienced personal injury attorneys know how to handle a variety of personal injuries and accidents. These include:

Vehicle accidents

With Routes 108 and 4 cutting right through Carlinville, the risk for vehicle accidents is high. We represent drivers, passengers, bicyclists, pedestrians, and motorcyclists when they’re injured in accidents like:

  • Car accidents. We handle all types of Carlinville car accidents. This includes rear-end crashes, head-on collisions, single-vehicle accidents, Uber & Lyft accidents, and the like.
  • Truck accidents. We also handle truck crashes, including underride accidents, rollovers, blind spot accidents, and cargo spills.
  • Motorcycle accidents. Motorcycle riders are at an extra risk on the road due to a motorcycle’s inherent lack of protection. Our attorneys handle all accidents caused by negligent drivers, as well as those caused by defective motorcycles and parts.
  • Bicycle accidents. Bicyclists have a similar risk to motorcyclists, in that their vehicle provides very little protection against accidents. We can help when a cyclist is injured in an accident that wasn’t their fault.
  • Pedestrian accidents. When pedestrians are struck by cars or trucks, no matter where that accident happens, our attorneys are here to help. We can help bring a claim against the at-fault driver.
  • Boating accidents. Our Carlinville attorneys also handle all kind of boating accidents that can occur when an operator acts in a negligent manner and causes a crash.

Other accidents

We also understand the types of claims to bring when property owners or others fail to follow basic safety procedures. Our attorneys will handle the following types of claim on your behalf:

  • Wrongful death claims. If someone’s negligence causes the death of a loved one, we file a wrongful death claim on your behalf, seeking all the compensation Illinois law permits.
  • Premises liability accidents. Property owners have a duty of care to maintain safe premises for their customers and visitors. If you were injured in a slip and fall, swimming pool accident, or assaulted due to negligent security, our attorneys bring a claim on your behalf.
  • Product defects. Product manufacturers also owe their customers a duty of care to sell products that are safe for use. Our Carlinville attorneys handle cases involved defective vehicle parts, electronics, children’s products, household appliances, and many other similar claims.
  • Medical malpractice. Our lawyers also represent patients harmed by all types of medical negligence, including misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis, medication errors, surgical errors, birth injuries, and other types of medical malpractice.
  • Nursing home neglect. If a loved one has suffered injuries, abuse, or neglect in a nursing home, we will protect their rights to compensation. This includes physical, emotional, financial, and sexual abuse in a nursing home.

  • Review all federal, Illinois, and local laws as they pertain to your case.
