The party that is at fault will have to pay for your expenses and on top of that, compensate you for current and future lost income as well as compensation for unnecessary pain and suffering.

Why is hiring a personal injury lawyer important?

Like all legal issues, a personal injury case is complex. In most cases your Cicero personal injury lawyer will have to locate witnesses and call them to present testimony as to what they saw and how what happened contributed to your injuries. Records will have to be located and examined and expert witnesses may have to be called. To successfully prosecute a personal injury case, your lawyer must pay particular attention to every detail; there is always a need for voluminous supporting documentation, time and lots of “red tape.” It is vital that the lawyer you hire will protect your rights, never lose sight of the fact that the defendant will be supported by seasoned lawyers from the insurance company and these people do not like to lose.

Most personal injury lawyers work on contingency, this simply means that their fee is paid from your award, there is no need for you to deal with any up-front fees; furthermore, if the lawyer is unsuccessful, you pay nothing but the lawyers out of pocket expenses.

If you have suffered injury through no fault of your own you may be able to hire a Cicero personal injury lawyer and sue the negligent party for damages. To discuss your case in detail you are invited to contact the Shea Law Group
