Have You Been Injured? We're Ready to Fight for You.

Lawndale, IL Personal Injury Lawyer

While it’s likely most of your days go as planned, it only takes seconds for an accident to completely change the course of your week, month, or even life. When someone else’s action contributes to or causes your accident and injuries, Illinois state law lets you pursue a claim against them to seek compensation for your losses and hold them accountable. If you have a case against someone, a Lawndale, IL personal injury lawyer from Thomas Law Offices can help.

Common Personal Injury Claims

An accident can happen just about anywhere, at any time. So when clients come to us, we evaluate what they’ve been through to determine if there are grounds for a claim. Some of the most common claims we see result from the following:

Car Accidents

Drivers are supposed to abide by the rules of the road and ensure their actions prevent harm to others. Unfortunately, when drivers are negligent, it only takes moments for a severe accident to occur. Some of the most common causes of accidents in Lawndale include distracted driving, fatigued driving, driving under the influence of alcohol, and speeding. If you’ve been involved in a crash you believe someone else caused, we’ll investigate the accident, determine what happened, and negotiate a fair settlement offer from the insurance company.

Truck Accidents

Truck drivers and trucking companies are responsible for the vehicles they put on the road. Tractor-trailers, 18-wheelers, and semi-trucks can cause fatal injuries when a smaller passenger vehicle is involved. In addition, truck accidents are often more complex than a standard auto accident because of the number of potential parties that could be at fault.

Medical Malpractice

Doctors and other medical professionals are supposed to provide patients with a certain level of care when they seek medical attention. Unfortunately, factors like understaffing and inexperience can result in an accident. Medical malpractice can happen in the operating room, while a patient is at a standard appointment, or during a hospital stay.

Nursing Home Abuse

When we can no longer provide adequate care for our loved ones, long-term care facilities can ensure a place where their needs are met and they can live comfortably. Not all nursing homes, however, are created equal. If you suspect your loved one is being abused or neglect in their elder care home, you may be able to seek compensation for their losses and hold the facility accountable so no one else is harmed.

Wrongful Death

In the event you’ve lost a loved one in an unexpected and preventable accident, your family can file a wrongful death claim on their behalf. Doing so will ensure you have the funds needed for funeral and burial expenses as well as medical bills. If they were the breadwinner in your family, you can also seek compensation, so your family doesn’t have to worry about paying bills or putting food on the table.

While the claims discussed above are the most common we see, they are not the only types of cases we represent. For example, some of the other claims we have taken on have involved the following:

  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Birth Injuries
  • Brain Injuries
  • Sexual Assault
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Construction Accidents
  • Premises Liability
  • Slip and Falls
  • Product Liability
  • Social Security Disability
