Personal Injury Lawyers in Chicago

The personal injury attorneys at Shea Law Group aggressively pursue every avenue to ensure that you are properly compensated for your pain, suffering, or loss as soon as possible. Our representation costs nothing until you are compensated for your injuries.

Without a clean bill of health, even the simplest of tasks can seem daunting and frustrating. It is not until you are suffering from an accident that you realize how important it is to navigate life when you are feeling your best. At Shea Law Group, our team of Chicago personal injury lawyers know that becoming injured unexpectedly not only has a huge impact on your life but the lives of those around you as well.

Our team is here to help you throughout every step of the process; from receiving the initial call that you need help with filing a lawsuit to collecting the necessary evidence to representing you in court, you don’t have to go through this trying time alone. We are dedicated to helping all of our clients fight for their rights will simultaneously bringing a level of compassion and understanding that other personal injury firms do not.

What is Personal Injury Law?

Our firm helps with personal injury (PI) cases in the Chicagoland area. Our team has seen firsthand the wide variety of ways that personal injuries can wreak havoc on the residents of Illinois. While suffering from injuries and other types of losses can be extremely frustrating, our team will fight endlessly to get you the compensation that you deserve.

Personal injury laws are in place to help people who have suffered a personal injury to go to civil court in order to regain their losses from the scenario. The end goal of personal injury lawsuits is to help the injured individual regain finances that were lost due to someone else’s actions.

Common Examples of Personal Injury Cases

While no two personal injury cases are the same, our team frequently represents clients from the following scenarios:

  • Car accidents: With such a large population in the Chicagoland area and surrounding suburbs, it’s not surprising that there are many car accidents that occur on a daily basis. The Illinois Department of Transportation notes that there are roughly 772 car accidents in the state of Illinois every day. If you have been injured in a car accident due to someone else’s negligence, it is important that you contact our team in a timely manner.
  • Slip and fall accidents: The potential for a slip and fall accident in Chicagoland is seemingly endless. Parking lots, grocery stores, and uneven sidewalks are just a handful of examples that may result in an injury. Store owners and other property managers are held responsible for maintaining their land and ensuring that it is safe for the public. If they are not able to fix their property in a reasonable amount of time, they must, at the very least, warn the public of the potential dangers.
  • Workers’ compensation: Becoming injured on the job is the last thing that you want to happen. Workers’ compensation is designed to help keep employers accountable for injuries that are caused at the workplace. While you may feel weird filing a case against your employer, don’t deprive yourself of your rights.
  • Dog bites: Dogs are everywhere in Chicago, and if you’re a dog lover, it’s tempting to go up to every dog you see and pet them. However, dogs don’t always have predictable behavior, so it is important to ask the owner before petting the dog. If you were attacked by a dog in any way, you could be entitled to compensation.
  • Nursing home neglect & abuse: As our loved ones get older, we may turn to professionals to help take care of them with daily tasks. Unfortunately, nursing home abuse is more common than you may think. If you believe that your loved one is suffering from mistreatment, that qualifies as a personal injury case.

How Does A Personal Injury Lawsuit Work?

As a general rule of thumb, you want to contact our Chicago personal injury lawyers as soon as you are able to following the accident. While the statute of limitations in the state of Illinois on personal injury lawsuits is two years, filing as soon as possible can help you get the maximum amount of compensation. If you are filing an injury claim against a city or a county, you have one year to file the lawsuit. Our team at Shea Law Group can make sure that your case is filed on time as well as help collect the evidence needed to prove your case.

Shea Law Group Client - Amanda K.

I went to Shea Law Group when I was injured in an auto accident recently. I thought it was going to be a terrible process trying to get everything sorted out. They did all the work and made the process so easy. They were efficient, professional, and were beyond helpful if I needed anything or had a question. Their staff (from the paralegals to the attorney’s themselves) was so amazing and did everything they could to make sure I received the compensation I deserved. I would recommend them to anyone who needs a personal injury attorney.
