Fighting For Your Future After A Personal Injury
Personal injuries due to an accident only take a moment, but they can leave the victim with a lifetime of consequences. Medical expenses can come long after your accident and major injuries can sometimes call for permanent life changes. When the consequences of an accident can be so severe, how can you be sure you are getting the settlement you deserve?
By calling the Illinois team at the Law Offices of Douglas E. Zeit, P.C., you can meet with a team of lawyers with more than 40 years of experience in helping clients secure the best settlement possible for their injuries. We know when it is appropriate to pursue things through negotiation and when litigation becomes necessary. We are ready to help you deal with insurance companies so you can fully recover from even the most severe accidents.
The Compensation You Deserve
Whether you were involved in a motor vehicle accident, slip-and-fall accident or injured because of a negligent property owner, your injuries may be life-changing. Recklessness or negligence from another person can leave you with permanent disabilities like scarring or burns, loss of bodily function, traumatic brain injuries, paralysis, amputation or death.
When you suffer these kinds of consequences, the compensation you or your family receives should be for more than just the first medical bill. We fight to secure the compensation that includes costs like:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Lost income during recovery
- Lost earning potential due to permanent injury
- Property damage
- Physical and emotional therapy
- Loss of life enjoyment
- Pain and suffering
To our team, pursuing compensation is not a quick cash-grab, it is your way of getting the resources that you need for the future. We want to be the team that helps you secure those resources. We know that you need a fair settlement as soon as possible, which is why we try to settle things quickly through negotiation. However, if negotiations cannot help you the way you need them to, we are not afraid to fight for you through litigation.
Do Not Wait For Your Settlement
In our state, you have as long as two years to file your personal injury claim, but that does not mean that you can or should wait that long. The money from your settlement can pay for your initial and long-term expenses, so be sure that you are getting what you deserve when you need it.
