Personal Injury Lawyer Pekin

Incidents that lead to personal injuries always catch the victims unawares but tend to leave far-lasting impacts on one’s physical, mental, and social life. For most people, these injuries are a result of another party’s negligence, and with the sudden changes to your life, it is best that you protect yourself and your loved ones by seeking compensation from the responsible party’s insurance company.

At LeFante Law Offices, we know the importance of getting the right legal representation, as this ultimately determines whether you and your loved ones will keep leading a dignified life. And, with over 25 years of experience representing injured persons and their families, you can count on us to do everything needed to ensure you get full and fair compensation.

What is a Personal Injury Case?

A personal injury case arises when an individual suffers bodily or emotional harm due to another party’s acts, negligence, or malicious intent. For example, if you have injuries resulting from a motor vehicle accident that was caused by the other driver who was making a wide turn into oncoming traffic, you should report this to the police and file a personal injury claim.

The primary purpose of filing a personal injury claim is to ensure that the at-fault person is held accountable and that fair compensation is provided for the injuries and losses suffered, including death, disability, and property damage.

There are 3 general categories of personal injuries that we will look into for every case, and these are:

  • Bodily harm. This covers any injury or harm that affects the health or comfort of the victim. These include; bruises, swelling, fractures, cuts, disfigurement, burns, and organ damage.
  • Pain and suffering. This covers the physical and mental discomfort one suffers from an injury.
  • Emotional distress. This is the psychological trauma one goes through after a physical incident.

Navigating Personal Injury Claims

You need to act fast after you or a loved one suffers personal injuries because of another party as their is a time limit to filing these cases. In Illinois, as with most states, the standard statute of limitations for filing a personal injury case is 2 years, and the clock starts running immediately after you suffer an injury.

The good news is that LeFante Law Offices is only a phone call away from taking up your case and working tirelessly to defend your rights, as we know how to handle an insurance adjuster or attorney representing the other party. We can further take up any personal injury case, regardless of whether your injuries and losses were caused by a car accident, medical malpractice, on-the-job injuries, animal attacks, nursing home negligence, or slip-and-fall incidents.
