Filing a Personal Injury Claim in Illinois

A personal injury claim can result from someone’s negligence, recklessness, or an intentional act. Although you may have the right to seek justice after an injury, filing a successful claim and negotiating for a fair settlement is far from easy. In the more than 25 years since our firm opened its doors, our attorneys have successfully represented individuals and families who have suffered serious injuries in Charleston and across Central and Southern Illinois, including an office in St. Louis. We fight for our clients inside and outside the civil courtroom to pursue fair compensation on their behalf.
