Chicago South Side Personal Injury Attorney

Lawyers for Serious Injuries in Pullman, Chatham, Gresham, Englewood, and South Shore

Serious injuries can change a person's life forever. In some cases, injury victims may experience permanent disabilities, but even if they are able to make a full recovery, they may struggle to pay for medical treatment and address other expenses. While victims can pursue financial compensation from a person or company that was responsible for their injuries, many people are unsure about the steps they will need to take to do so. For people who live on the south side of Chicago, including those who earn lower incomes or who do not have significant financial resources, it is crucial to work with a personal injury attorney to determine the best options for recovering financial compensation.

The attorneys of Karchmar & Lambert, P.C. provide legal help and representation for people throughout Chicago's south side who have experienced serious injuries. With more than 50 years of combined legal experience, our lawyers have the knowledge and skills needed to help victims receive the payments they need to address their damages. We will fight tirelessly to achieve justice for those who have been injured by others' actions or negligence.

Personal Injuries on the South Side of Chicago

Our attorneys assist with multiple different types of injury cases, including:

  • Motor vehicle collisions - Car accidents and truck crashes often take place on the busy city streets of Chicago's south side, as well as interstate freeways such as I-90 and I-94. Those who are injured in these crashes can take action to hold a negligent driver liable, and they may also be able to pursue compensation from others who were liable for car crash injuries, such as manufacturers of defective auto parts or city government authorities who did not correct hazards on a dangerous road or intersection. Our lawyers can assist with injuries in cases involving hit and run collisions, rear-end crashes, pedestrian injuries, rollover accidents, distracted driving collisions, drunk driver liability, bicycle accidents, underinsured or uninsured drivers, and collisions with Uber, Lyft, taxi, or limo drivers.
  • Mass transit injuries - Many south side residents rely on public transportation, including trains and buses operated by the Chicago Transit Authority. Injuries to passengers can occur if drivers do not operate these vehicles correctly, if the equipment is not properly maintained, or if negligent drivers do not drive safely around buses or trains. Pedestrians or drivers and passengers of other vehicles can also be injured in collisions involving public transportation vehicles or because railroad crossings or elevated train tracks are damaged or are not functioning correctly.
  • Premises liability - Those who are injured while on someone else's property, including on private property or a public place such as a store, may be able to hold a property owner liable for their damages. Our attorneys provide legal help in cases involving slip and falls or injuries caused by negligent security or maintenance.
  • Landlord negligence - South side residents who rent apartments or other types of homes may suffer injuries because a landlord failed to repair hazards or address safety or security issues. We can help tenants hold a landlord responsible for injuries that occur due to this type of negligence.
  • Dog bites - Animal owners may be held liable for injuries inflicted by their pets, even if they did not know that a dog was dangerous or if an animal had not previously displayed violent or aggressive tendencies. Our lawyers can help victims receive compensation for dog bite injuries, including lacerations, puncture wounds, infections, nerve damage, and scarring and disfigurement.
  • Severe injuries - An injury may result in catastrophic bodily harm and permanent disabilities, and victims should be fully compensated for all expenses and damages they have suffered. We assist with spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, and other types of traumatic injuries.
  • Wrongful death - A victim's family members may seek compensation from the person or parties responsible for a person's death. The damages available in these cases may include medical expenses for treatment received prior to death, income that the deceased person would have earned throughout the rest of their life, expenses related to the person's funeral and burial, and non-economic damages such as loss of companionship and emotional trauma experienced by family members.
