West Side of Chicago Personal Injury Lawyers

Attorneys Providing Legal Help With Car Crashes and Severe Injuries in Austin and Garfield Park

The west side of Chicago includes multiple different communities and neighborhoods that house people of all income levels and walks of life. While people on the west side can enjoy the many opportunities that the city of Chicago and the Cook County area have to offer, they may also find themselves at risk of serious injuries in certain situations. When residents experience harm due to other people's negligence, they have the right to pursue compensation through a personal injury claim or lawsuit.

At Karchmar & Lambert, P.C., we regularly represent people on Chicago's west side who have suffered injuries, and throughout our combined 50 years of experience, we have helped our clients recover millions of dollars in settlements and jury verdicts. We will provide you with dedicated representation as we seek to hold the person who was responsible for your injuries liable for the damages you have suffered. With our help, you can receive financial compensation that will provide you with the resources you need as you recover from your injuries.

Injury Cases on Chicago's West Side

We provide legal help with a wide variety of personal injuries, including:

  • Car accidents - Traffic on the west side can be very busy, and collisions can take place on city streets, neighborhood roads, or large freeways such as I-290 or I-55. Our attorneys can help victims determine who was responsible for a car crash and hold a negligent driver liable for the injuries and damages they have suffered. We can assist with rollover accidents, rear-end collisions, truck crashes, hit and runs, and collisions caused by distracted drivers, drunk drivers, or drivers who are uninsured or underinsured.
  • Uber, Lyft, and taxi crashes - Many residents use these types of services to get around the city of Chicago, and collisions can occur when these drivers act negligently or unsafely. Our lawyers can assist with these types of cases and ensure that a driver's employer is held responsible for the actions of their workers.
  • Mass transit accidents - Public transportation allows many people on the west side to travel throughout Chicago and Cook County, but passengers can suffer serious injuries due to the negligent operation of trains or buses, inadequate maintenance of vehicles or train tracks, or collisions with other cars or trucks. In these cases, we can help victims take action to recover compensation from organizations such as Metra, Pace, or the Chicago Transit Authority, as well as any other liable parties.
  • Accidents involving pedestrians and bicycles - Vehicles must often share the streets on Chicago's west side with people on foot and bicyclists. Drivers who do not take the proper care to protect the safety of pedestrians and bicyclists may cause serious injuries, and we can help victims hold these drivers responsible for their negligence.
  • Premises liability - Property owners may be held liable for injuries suffered by visitors due to hazards on their premises. Our lawyers assist with slip and fall accidents and injuries that took place at malls or stores, as well as situations in which west side tenants suffered injuries because of landlord negligence.
  • Catastrophic injuries - Some severe injuries can result in permanent disabilities or other issues that have a long-term impact on a person's health and well-being. We represent victims of traumatic brain injuries, spine injuries resulting in paralysis, broken bones, amputations, and other forms of serious bodily harm.
  • Wrongful death - When a person is killed due to another person's actions or negligence, the victim's surviving family members can pursue compensation for the loss of their loved one. Our lawyers can help families receive compensation that addresses damages such as the costs of medical treatment, the loss of the income the victim would have earned, funeral and burial expenses, loss of support and companionship, and emotional trauma experienced by family members.
