Maximize Compensation for Your Injuries
Immediately after an accident it is important to contact an attorney who can preserve evidence for your claim. Our attorneys will perform an investigation, collect medical and police records, contact witnesses, and preserve any material evidence necessary for your case.
Trusted Advocacy From an Experienced Mass Transit Attorney
We understand the life-altering consequences that a mass transit accident or injury can have on you. You may have suffered a serious or disabling injury, become unable to work or care for your family, or lost a loved one. Our attorneys will take a comprehensive approach to your case and claim, making sure that you have the medical care you need.
Our firm has recovered millions of dollars in settlements and trial verdicts, most notably, in a case involving a client locked in the doors of a Chicago Transit Authority train. The C.T.A. offered $50,000.00 to settle the case based upon the $11,970.00 worth of medical bills. Mark Horwitz and his client refused to take this offer to settle and instead went to trial obtaining a verdict of $1,197,000.00, thus making Mark a member of the “Million Dollar Verdict Club”.
Aggressive Representation — Quality Legal Services
Do not lose your right to sue. There are different statutes of limitations on personal injury claims when suing public mass transit authorities. Instead of having the normal two years to file suit, you only have one year from the date of the accident to file suit against a mass transit authority. By taking immediate action you will protect those rights that those agencies hope you will overlook. We offer free consultations and do not collect a fee until we recover a settlement or verdict in your favor.
If you or someone you care about has been injured, contact an injury lawyer at The Horwitz Law Group in Chicago, Illinois, by e-mail or by calling 312-641-9200.
