When you or a loved one is injured by someone else’s negligence or recklessness, a lawsuit is the last thing on your mind. Your priority is simple to understand, and difficult to achieve: getting your life back to normal.
Under these circumstances, you are physically and financially vulnerable. You may be in a great deal of pain and unable to work. At the same time, you may be experiencing an influx of bills from medical treatment. Many people feel completely overwhelmed with pain, uncertainty, and desperation.
If you find yourself in this situation, and you are offered a financial settlement, it can seem like the answer to a prayer. And that is exactly what the insurance company offering the settlement is banking on. The job of every insurance company is to cover damage caused by their clients while paying out as little as possible. Their priority is necessarily on their own clients and their own financial success as a business.
That leaves you, the injured person, faced with a choice of whether to accept a settlement that may be insufficient to address your needs. If you do accept it, you will almost certainly be unable to pursue a larger recovery later if your needs turn out to be greater than expected. And in your vulnerable state, you may be unable to assess what your needs will truly be, let alone to advocate for them.
You need the help of someone objective who can help you understand your situation and fight to protect your rights. The attorneys at Beuke & Beuke have over three decades of combined courtroom experience and are familiar with the law as it applies to a wide variety of personal injury cases. They have access to the medical professionals who can help to determine what your true needs will be, both now and down the road.
Skilled negotiators as well as a strong litigators, Rick and Peter can prepare your case in such a way that the responsible party is inclined to offer a truly reasonable settlement. If an appropriate settlement is not forthcoming, they have the necessary skill to advocate for you in court in Illinois or elsewhere.
