Dolton Personal Injury Lawyers

When you are injured by someone else’s negligence, you do not have to just curse your bad luck and foot the bill while you are recovering in the hospital. You can recover damages related to your injury. The Horwitz Law Group helps Dolton residents gain restitution in cases in which another’s malice or negligence is responsible for their injuries. If you have been injured in Illinois, reach out to one of our experienced attorneys today.

State of Illinois Personal Injury Statute

Each state sets a limit on when a personal injury lawsuit can be brought against an at-fault party. In Illinois, the statute of limitations on tort cases is two years. While there are instances in which exceptions may apply, it is always better to file your lawsuit sooner rather than later. If you do not file your lawsuit within two years, you will very likely see your case dismissed before it ever sees a jury or enters litigation.

Illinois’s Traffic Accident Liability Laws

In Illinois, auto accidents are typically governed by a fault-based liability system. This means that the party at fault for the accident and resulting injuries is responsible for covering the damages. Personal injury lawyers in Illinois play a critical role in determining liability by investigating the circumstances surrounding the accident, collecting evidence, and establishing negligence. These attorneys help accident victims pursue compensation by negotiating with insurance companies or, if necessary, by filing lawsuits against the at-fault party, aiming to secure damages for medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, and other losses incurred due to the accident.

Onsite Construction Accidents or Work-Related Injuries

If you have been injured on the job, you are eligible to collect workers’ compensation. As a tradeoff, employers have immunity from employee lawsuits unless their workers’ comp coverage does not cover your injury claim or a non-employee was responsible for the accident. Filing a workers’ compensation claim can be an emotionally draining experience, especially as the insurance company keeps asking you for more and more information. The attorneys at the Horwitz Law Group can help.

Premises Liability and Dog Bites

When an injury happens on someone else’s property, a seasoned personal injury attorney can prove that the owner was responsible for the accident. These claims are generally filed against commercial general liability policies or homeowners insurance. In some cases, companies or individuals can be sued directly. These include slip and fall accidents, (in some cases) dog bite lawsuits, negligent security, and other forms of premises liability.

Medical Malpractice

If you have been injured by a careless or negligent doctor, you can recover damages related to your pain and suffering, medical expenses, and missed time from work. The attorneys at the Horwitz Law Group can help you recover every penny you have lost due to your doctor’s carelessness (and more).
