MILLIONS WON FOR OUR CLIENTS

Belvidere Personal Injury Attorney

It is estimated that 100 million Americans seek emergency treatment for injuries every year. Many injuries are caused by other people’s negligence or misconduct. When this happens, the injured person may have a right to receive compensation for the cost of medical care, lost wages, and more. 

Personal injury accidents can happen in a number of ways, and they can cause injuries that range from minor to fatal. It is important that you file a claim to hold the liable party accountable so you can get compensated for all your damages. Claims can range from hundreds to millions of dollars.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

The most common way that personal injuries occur is in motor vehicle accidents. These crashes may involve passenger vehicles, trucks, motorcycles, rideshare vehicles, and pedestrians. Car crashes can happen in various ways. They include rear-end accidents, sideswipe accidents, head-on accidents, and side-impact accidents.  Motor vehicle accidents can cause serious injuries, including broken bones, head trauma, back and neck injuries, and internal injuries.

Medical Malpractice

Ironically, it is possible to get injured by a doctor. The very professionals who are supposed to provide you with medical treatment for illnesses and injuries can actually injure you by providing substandard care. This negligence is called medical malpractice and is often caused by misdiagnosis, surgical errors, and medication errors. These cases are complex and require aggressive legal representation. 

Slips and Falls

Slips and falls are a type of premises liability case, which means property owners have an obligation to prevent these types of accidents and keep the premises safe. These injuries are often caused by slippery floors covered by water, oil, or other liquids. Slips and falls can happen in stores, restaurants, offices, and parking lots, as well as on sidewalks or stairs. These accidents can be more serious than many people imagine, causing head trauma, broken bones, and back and neck injuries. A Belvidere personal injury attorney can help you show evidence of your injuries in your claim for compensation.

Dog Bites

Dog bites are another common cause of serious injury. Illinois has a strict liability policy for dog bites. This means the dog owner can be liable for the full amount of a victim’s injuries if their dog attacks or injures someone who:

  • Is peaceably conducting themselves
  • Has a lawful right to be in the place where the incident occurred
  • Does not provoke the dog

Illinois’ Animal Control Act allows for recovery for any type of dog attack. Therefore, if you were pushed down, scratched, or otherwise hurt, you may still have a viable claim even if the dog did not bite you. The outcome of a dog bite can be severe, resulting in lacerations, scarring, disfigurement, and infections.

Jerry F.

I was quite satisfied with the dedicated work of Kevin Frost last year. I was certain I had been wronged during a medical procedure. Seeking counsel, Mr. Frost approached my case as if it was his own. He quickly researched the facts of my voluminous case, sought the assistance of a doctor knowledgeable in this area of medicine and responded with impressive speed. Even though my case was not applicable to an injury matter, I was given a great peace of mind in knowing Mr. Frost’s diligent legal opinion was solid as a rock and explained to me in proper...
