What You Should Know About Personal Injury

Any time that someone is injured by someone else, there is a potential personal injury claim. But there’s a lot to prove in a personal injury case in Illinois or Missouri.  As a general rule of thumb, you may not need a personal injury lawyer unless you suffered injuries that require medical attention beyond basic first aid.  Likewise, it should be relatively clear that someone else caused the injury. Here are some key points to remember about personal injury cases.


This is just a brief list of the types of injury cases we generally accept. If you don’t see your specific injury, that’s okay. Give us a call and we will discuss whether it’s something we may be willing to help you resolve.

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Trucking accidents
  • Motorcycle crashes
  • Scooter, bicycle and pedestrian crashes
  • Boating or recreational accidents
  • Slip and fall injuries
  • Dog bites and animal attacks
  • Wrongful death

If you have contracted COVID-19 as part of your work environment, please contact us and we can discuss if your condition falls under the Workers’ Compensation Act. If we can prove that you contracted your virus as part of your work environment, you would be entitled to compensation that would include payment of all medical expenses; lost time benefits while you recovery; and a settlement for any ongoing problems after you recover. 


Please note that in Illinois, first responders and essential employees are presumed to have contracted COVID-19 at work.  Missouri recognizes that same presumption but limits it to first responders.  Regardless, if believe that you contracted COVID-19 at work, please contact us immediately so that we can inform you of your rights under the Workers’ Compensation Act.
