Lawyers Representing Victims in Personal Injury Cases in Cook County, Kenwood, and Ashburn

A serious injury can cause many different setbacks for a victim and their family. The costs of medical treatment alone can be massive, and the inability to work while recovering can cause additional financial difficulties. In addition to problems related to money, victims and their loved ones can also struggle with emotional trauma, especially if an injury has resulted in a permanent disability or death. When injuries occur because of someone else's negligence, victims need to understand their options for pursuing financial compensation that will address their losses and their ongoing needs.

The law firm of Karchmar & Lambert, P.C. provides legal help for those who have suffered personal injuries, and we are dedicated to helping our clients receive the compensation they deserve. Since the founding of our firm in 2002, we have represented clients in many different types of cases, helping them receive millions of dollars in compensation. We offer free consultations, and we provide legal services on a contingency basis, meaning that clients will not owe any legal fees unless we successfully collect compensation. Whether a case involves relatively minor injuries and property damage or serious bodily harm and permanent disability, we will provide legal representation to ensure that victims and their families are fully compensated.

Legal Help With Multiple Types of Personal Injuries

We work with victims to identify the parties who were responsible for their injuries, gather the necessary evidence to establish liability, and pursue all avenues of compensation, including by making insurance claims or pursuing personal injury lawsuits. We assist with a wide variety of injury cases, including:

  • Car accidents - Motor vehicle collisions can lead to serious injuries for drivers and passengers, as well as significant property damage. We provide representation for victims of rear-end collisions, rollover accidents, hit and run collisions, and accidents involving distracted drivers, drunk drivers, taxi or rideshare drivers, and uninsured or underinsured drivers.
  • Pedestrian and vehicle accidents - People on foot are likely to suffer severe injuries when struck by a motor vehicle, and in many cases, these collisions occur because of the negligence of drivers.
  • Bicycle accidents - Bicyclists should be able to safely share the road with other vehicles, but they may be injured because of aggressive driving, violations of traffic laws, or "dooring."
  • Truck crashes - Tractor-trailer trucks are large, heavy, complicated vehicles, and collisions can occur if truck drivers violate traffic laws or drive while drowsy or under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Trucking companies may be held liable for negligence that led to truck crashes, including in cases involving inadequate truck maintenance or unsecured cargo.
  • Premises liability - A negligent property owner may be held liable for injuries to visitors that occurred because hazards were not addressed properly. We assist with slip and fall accidents, injures that occur at malls or stores, and cases involving building owner or landlord negligence.
  • Dog bites and animal attacks - The owner of a dog may be held responsible for injuries that occur when their animal attacks someone without provocation.
  • Mass transit injuries - Accidents involving trains or buses can lead to serious injuries for passengers, people in other vehicles, or pedestrians.
  • Severe and catastrophic injuries - Some injuries can result in permanent disabilities and issues that affect a victim and their family for years to come. We represent victims of traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and other forms of severe bodily harm.
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect - Residents of nursing homes and assisted living facilities can suffer serious harm if they are subject to intentional abuse by staff members or others or if they are not provided with the care and treatment they need.
  • Wrongful death - In cases where a person is killed because of someone else's negligence or intentional actions, their family members may pursue compensation for damages such as medical expenses, loss of income, funeral and burial costs, loss of companionship, and mental anguish.
