Dedicated Legal Representation From An Ottawa Accident Attorney You Can Trust

Accidents happen for a variety of reasons, and generally when you least expect them. Unfortunately, the injuries that result can end up being severe and potentially disabling, threatening your ability to work or even engage in hobbies and activities you once enjoyed.

At Brassfield & Krueger, Ltd., we provide clients with dedicated legal representation from a local attorney they can trust. When accidental injuries occur, our Rockland injury attorneys can advise you on how to hold responsible parties accountable for the harm you have suffered, and assist you in getting the compensation you deserve.

The Truth Behind ‘Accidental Injuries

Nearly every day, there are news reports concerning people who suffer from accidents and injuries, such as the January 2017 CBS News report of a Forest Park man who was struck by a hit and run driver while he was out walking. While reported as an ‘accident’, the truth of the matter is that the man’s injuries occurred due to the reckless and negligent conduct of the driver involved.

Negligence is a legal theory under which victims can get compensation for their injuries. Ultimately, negligence is defined as:

  • Doing something a reasonable person would not do under similar circumstances. Examples include a driver whose speeding is responsible for an accident, or a doctor who performs the wrong procedure or operate on the wrong patient; or
  • Failing to do something a reasonable person would have done. Examples include a store owner who fails to warn customers of wet floors, or a dog owner who fails to keep their dog on a leash.

 Compensation for Accidental Injuries

Under the Illinois Compiled Statutes (735 ILCS 5/), those who engage in reckless and negligent acts can be held legally liable for any injuries that result. Compensation may include medical costs and expenses, lost wages and future losses in income, as well as compensation for pain and suffering.

At  Brassfield & Krueger, Ltd , we represent clients who suffer injuries as the result of the following:

  • Car, truck, and motorcycle accidents;
  • Bicycle and pedestrian accidents;
  • Premises liability accidents, involving slips and falls;
  • Workplace accidents;
  • Product liability accidents.
