Serious injuries occur throughout the Chicago metro area every day and are often due to someone else's negligence. Injury victims can seek justified compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering through a personal injury lawsuit.

To file a personal injury lawsuit, you need an aggressive and trusted attorney who will serve as your ally every step of the way. At the Law Office of James A. Podgorny, we advocate for accident victims whose lives have been negatively impacted by the negligent actions of others. We will fight for your rights and the damages to which you are entitled.

Types of Personal Injury Cases

If you have suffered any of the following personal injuries, contact the Law Office of James A. Podgorny immediately for swift legal action:

  • Car accidents and motorcycle accidents: These may involve drivers who are found negligent due to drunk driving, driving under the influence of a controlled substance, speeding, failure to stop, or distracted driving.
  • Truck accidents: Large semis often collide with other vehicles because of excessive speed, improper maintenance, driver fatigue, improperly secured or shifting loads, DUI, or a combination of these.
  • Pedestrian accidents: The frequent causes of many car crashes also contribute to accidents that seriously injure pedestrians, including the failure to yield the right of way at intersections.
  • Slip-and-fall accidents: Property owners who fail to provide hazard-free premises can be found negligent due to entryway ice, spilled food or liquid, broken handrails and stairs, uneven sidewalks, and other improperly maintained facilities.
  • Dog bites: Studies indicate around 4.5 million dog bites occur each year in the U.S. Nearly 20 percent require medical treatment, and 18 percent become infected. A dog bite may cause rabies, MRSA, or tetanus infection, all of which can produce serious medical problems.
  • Workplace accidents: Job-related injuries include construction accidents and other job mishaps in which proper safety equipment and training were not provided to employees. 
  • Food poisoning: Food processing and packaging plants, restaurants, and other food-service operations can be found liable for your sickness if they failed to provide a safe product, including outbreaks of norovirus, salmonella, and E. coli.
  • Wrongful death: An individual or business can be the target of a wrongful death suit for a fatal accident that involved negligence on their part.

We can conduct a full investigation into the circumstances of your injury to determine the full facts and liability in your case. We will gather evidence to support your claim and illustrate the severity and impact on your life, so you can get the compensation you deserve.
