Orland Park Car Accident Lawyer

Illinois Personal Injury Law Firm

If you have been injured in a car accident, it is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible. Evidence such as tire marks and eyewitness memories can fade over time. Contacting a lawyer early in the process of your case can better enable him or her to investigate and pursue your case.

If you have been injured in a car accident, truck accident or motorcycle accident, I encourage you to contact my law office in Chicago or Orland Park. I have more than 25 years of legal experience, and I fight for every client I represent. To schedule a free consultation, call 708-633-6005.

Experienced Negotiator and Trial Lawyer

Auto accident cases can be highly complex. Knowing how to prepare a case and formulate and prove damages is a skill that comes with knowledge and experience. Throughout my legal career, I have tried more than 200 trials to verdict, and negotiated settlements on thousands of other cases.

Although most personal injury cases ultimately settle without the necessity of trial, it can be a major advantage to have an attorney on your side who knows how to effectively present and argue your case at trial when necessary. I have negotiation and litigation experience, and can pursue full and fair compensation on your behalf. My goal in each case is to get my client the complete compensation that the law permits and that he or she deserves.

Working With Expert Witnesses

One of the things that I have learned through experience is how to effectively use expert witnesses to present and strengthen a case. Throughout my legal career, I have used numerous expert witnesses in car accident cases to better enable my clients to receive the compensation they deserve.

Some of the experts I have worked with include accident reconstructionists, bio-mechanical engineers, human factors experts, economists, psychologists, neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, ER doctors and radiologists.
