Common Personal Injury Cases
According to the National Safety Council, there were 38.9 million medically consulted injuries in 2009 (up almost 40% over 2008). Of these unintentional injuries, more than 128,000 resulted in death. When a permanent injury or wrongful death occurs as the result of negligence, it becomes a personal injury case.
Motor vehicle accidents are one of the most common types of personal injury cases. Incidents at work, at home and in public places round out the claims. These include tripping accidents, product defects, poisoning, drowning, fires and personal assault.
Physical injury as a result of negligent, reckless behavior on the part of an individual or business is one type of personal injury case. Intentional or negligent infliction of emotional distress is another. In both instances, the emotional, financial and logistical stresses involved with recovery are significant.
Professional and Personal Approach to Your Personal Injury Case
Our goal with each case and client is twofold: (1) deliver the highest quality representation to secure the highest possible recovery; and (2) ensure that our clients are treated with the respect they deserve, and are kept informed and involved in the progression of their case. The professional, yet personal approach of our Chicago injury lawyer to your case truly sets us apart from other firms.
We have had the privilege and honor to represent hundreds of clients securing substantial awards for them and their families. Because of the personal approach of each Chicago injury lawyer at Passen & Powell, our clients continually refer their family, friends, and co-workers. Our aggressive approach to your case is geared to help our clients recover the compensation they are entitled and the justice they deserve.
We Are Trial Lawyers
Once we accept a personal injury case, we devote our full attention and resources to each stage of every case. This allows our clients and their families to focus their attention on getting the emotional and physical care necessary to aid with their recovery from an accident.
Each Chicago injury lawyer prepares every case the same way: we prepare your case for trial. As evidenced by Stephen Passen’s recent $19 million jury verdict on behalf of a 9-year-old boy who sustained a traumatic brain injury in his elementary school, a record in Illinois, we are experienced and seasoned trial lawyers. And we will not hesitate to take your case to trial, if that is the only way for you to receive fair compensation for your injuries.
Still, our reputation as accomplished trial lawyers gives us leverage at the negotiating table, which often results in our clients being able to settle their cases for substantial compensation.
