Personal Injury


Personal injuries can happen to anyone, and they usually occur when you are least expecting them. Maybe you were on your way to work on the road you drive every day. Perhaps you were bit by a dog in the park or slipped and fell at your neighborhood grocery store. Whatever kind of personal injury you sustain, a well-versed Joliet personal injury attorney can help you recoup your losses. Speaking to an attorney as soon as possible after your injuries can help you secure the compensation you are entitled to.


What is a Personal Injury Claim?

A personal injury claim is a legal tort claim.

These claims have two essential elements; liability and damages. There are two questions to ask to determine if you have a personal injury claim:

  • Was someone liable for the damages you sustained?
  • If yes, what is the nature and extent of your damages?

If you or your Joliet personal injury lawyer can prove that the other party caused your damages, the civil court system will provide you with compensation for your losses.

There are many types of personal injury claims we handle at Pinkston Law Group P.C.

Types of Personal Injury Claims 

We help injured victims with a variety of different injury claims, such as:

  • Car Accident
  • Dog Bite
  • Food Poisoning
  • Malicious Prosecution
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Nightclub Incident
  • Nursing Home Negligence
  • Police Abuse
  • Slip & Fall
  • Wrongful Death

You do have the option to file and pursue these types of claims on your own. However, studies show that people who hire a Joliet personal injury attorney to help them receive more compensation than those who don’t. This remains true even after their attorney’s fees are paid. Insurance companies know that when a claimant hires an attorney, they are serious about receiving a fair settlement or court award.

Your Legal Rights are Time-Sensitive

In Illinois, the statute of limitations is two years from the date of the incident that caused your injury. This means you have two years to file your personal injury lawsuit. If you do not file within this time period, your legal claim will be invalid. One way to ensure that your case is filed within the statute of limitations is to hire a personal injury attorney as soon as possible after sustaining your injury.

Not only will contacting a lawyer sooner rather than later help you file your case before the statute of limitations expires, but it will also help ensure that evidence in your case is collected in a timely manner. The more time that goes by, the bigger the risk that evidence could be destroyed or lost.
