Evanston Personal Injury Lawyer

Effective Legal Representation in All Cases

A personal injury, whether from a car accident or nursing home neglect or abuse, causes physical, emotional, and financial damage. In the most severe cases, that damage can be astronomical due to the high cost of hospitalizations and medical care, additional therapies, property damage, and more. Furthermore, these injuries can sideline you for extended time periods, putting your livelihood at risk, as well as cause enormous physical and emotional trauma that may be difficult to overcome.

For all these reasons and more, you need the services of an aggressive and effective legal representative who has the know-how and experience to fight for fair compensation. This often involves going up against large corporate insurance companies that will fight equally hard to reduce their liability and your claim. At The Rooth Law Firm, we handle these issues all day every day in battling for maximum compensation for our clients. Our Evanston personal injury attorney has over three decades of experience in the legal arena. He knows how to hold negligent parties and their insurers accountable for the injured and their families.

Personal Injury Cases in Evanston, IL

Personal injuries can vary in severity and in their causes. No matter how they occur, however, they involve some type of negligence, carelessness, or wrongdoing on the part of someone else. That other party can be an individual, a corporation, or even a government entity that owed you a duty of care. Holding them responsible involves proving their fault and the fact that their fault caused your injuries. Personal injury claims of this nature are most often settled outside of court through negotiation. In cases where that does not lead to a fair and just settlement, however, you will need an attorney to take your case to court.

At the Rooth Law Firm, we handle all types of serious and catastrophic person injury cases. These can be the result of the following:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents and other premises liability injuries
  • Defective or dangerous products (product liability)
  • Dog bites/attacks
  • Medical malpractice

We also focus much of our practice on nursing home abuse and neglect. In these cases, we take pride in providing a voice for those most underserved in our community, the elderly and vulnerable individuals residing in these facilities who are often totally dependent on others for their care and wellbeing. We dig deep into investigating these and all personal injury cases so as to find the truth, to build our clients’ claims, and to pursue the justice they deserve.

How Do You Know You Have a Claim?

The first question potential clients ask us is how to know if they have a valid legal claim.

When it comes to personal injury cases, there are two basic elements you must prove:

  • You suffered injuries
  • Someone else’s negligence caused your injuries

Merriam-Webster dictionary defines negligence as the “failure to exercise the care that a reasonably prudent person would exercise in like circumstances.” Instances of negligence can include texting while driving, making mistakes during an operation, or failing to provide necessary care for a nursing home resident.

Modified Comparative Fault in Illinois

The State of Illinois enacted modified comparative fault in personal injury cases. This means that a plaintiff’s portion of fault in the accident or incident affects his or her financial recovery. A plaintiff will recover nothing if she or he is more than 50 percent at fault. This means that you could receive no compensation for your injuries if a court of law finds you 51 percent responsible. For this reason alone, it is important to work with our Evanston personal injury attorney who understands the nuances involved with Illinois negligence law.

Valuing Your Case

Another question that comes up often is, “How much is my personal injury claim worth?” The answer to this question depends on a number of variables such as the severity of your injury, the extent of your existing medical bills, expected medical needs in the future, lost wages and loss of potential income. We will work hard to assess these and other factors to ensure that we are seeking a financial recovery that addresses your current and future losses.

Time Matters in Personal Injury Cases

Time is of the essence when it comes to bringing a personal injury claim. You want to ensure that you see a doctor immediately after sustaining your injury and start to build a medical record. Follow your doctor’s instructions as stated. Moreover, you will want to seek out legal representation to protect any evidence that may affect your claim.
