Personal Injury Defense Lawyer in Chicago

Have you been wrongfully named in a personal injury lawsuit? Make sure you have aggressive and competent legal representation. At The Horwitz Law Group, we defend people, businesses, and government agencies named in personal injury lawsuits in Chicago. Our client-centered attorneys will update you on case developments and work relentlessly to successfully defend your case.

What Is Personal Injury Defense?

Personal injury defense is the practice of law to defend individuals, businesses, and government entities against accusations they are responsible for causing injuries to another person. If you enlist an attorney to fight personal injury accusations against you, the first thing your lawyer will do is review the plaintiff’s legal claim to determine if it is valid. Your attorney will file the required court documents to defend your case and advise you of your legal options.

Individuals often have insurance that will cover their personal injury defense. For example:

  • Drivers have auto insurance
  • Homeowners and businesses carry property insurance
  • Doctors have malpractice insurance

This means both the defendant and the defendant’s insurer can hire personal injury defense counsel.

Why You Must Hire a Personal Injury Defense Lawyer With Experience

In a personal injury case, the plaintiff’s medical care expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering are taken into account when determining a settlement claim amount. That amount often rises for wrongful death claims.

However, the legal team at Horwitz Law Group will defend you against those claims by investigating the facts. We’ll also call on medical experts and other specialists whose testimony can bolster your defense.

We understand personal injury law and the maneuvers the plaintiff’s attorneys will employ, and we have the experience to successfully combat those tactics. We’ll work diligently to build an iron-clad defense and, as we have in many cases, we may be able to resolve your case without litigation.

Personal Injury Claims Requiring Legal Defense

The following are only some types of personal injury claims that we fight against:

  • Auto accident injury claims: Injuries stemming from car accidents are the most common personal injury claim.
  • Slip and fall claims: These claims are against the property or business owner where the accident occurred.
  • Medical malpractice claims: Medical professionals are sometimes accused of causing injuries to their patients. 
  • Product liability: Many people file claims against a product manufacturer asserting that a defective product is responsible for injuring the consumer.
  • Defamation claims: Defendants may face claims they have caused injury to another person’s reputation.

Of course, this is just a small representation of the types of personal injury claims that are made. Our firm has experience defending all matters of personal injury claims.
