Catastrophic Personal Injury

If you or a loved one was injured as a result of someone else’s carelessness, needlessly dangerous behavior, or otherwise negligent conduct, please contact our firm for a free consultation.  At Raymond & Raymond, Ltd., we believe that if someone is injured and that injury is due to negligence and no fault of their own, the injured person deserves full compensation, and the law in Illinois allows full compensation for your injuries.

At Raymond & Raymond, Ltd. we work tirelessly to ensure our client’s receive full compensation under each of the available categories of injury under Illinois Law. The injuries for which a person is allowed compensation include:

  • Loss of normal life (both past and future);
  • Disability (both past and future);
  • Pain & Suffering (both past and future);
  • Medical Bills (both past and future);
  • Loss of Income / Lost Wages (both past and future);
  • Wrongful Death;
  • Loss of Society (A family’s loss for a deceased relative)
  • Emotional Distress

Some people believe that although they were unjustly injured as a result of someone else’s negligent conduct, they should not have a lawyer investigate their potential claim because they believe lawsuits for personal injuries are wrong.  These same people often do not realize that the wrongdoer has insurance for this very purpose and have been paying premiums for years just in the very thing that caused their injury were to happen.  Therefore, the effect of a lawsuit against the wrongdoer will be small and not devastating to their well-being.  After all, that is the reason that they have liability insurance to begin with.  If the wrongdoer is sued they will likely notify their insurance company who then hires attorneys to defend them in court.  A vast majority of the time any settlement or verdict that is received from a personal injury lawsuit is covered by the liability insurance policy.  Thus, the only thing a person loses out on by not contacting a lawyer to investigate their potential personal injury lawsuit is the possibility of compensation for the harms and losses they have suffered as a result of their injuries.  Why live with the injuries caused by a wrongdoer without the chance of receiving full compensation?
