Personal Injury & Wrongful Death
At Lawler Brown Law Firm we represent the injured. We can meet with you, free of charge, in a consultation about your injury, your concerns, and your chances for recovering compensation. We charge no attorneys’ fees until you receive a verdict or settlement. In short, we are here for you, helping you all we can.
Our clients in this area of our practice include people seriously hurt in automobile or other motor vehicle accidents. We also help people injured because of dangerous property conditions. We provide families grieving over the loss of a loved one in a fatal accident with the support and advice they need to file a wrongful death claim.
After suffering serious personal injuries or wrongful deaths, families are plagued with questions and concerns. They need money to pay for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, etc. — but they are uncertain as to future needs. The insurance companies or those responsible will not want to adequately compensate them for their true needs, and will no doubt try to undervalue their claim.
If you have been seriously injured, you are trying to recover while worrying about your finances at the same time. If a family member died in an accident, you are probably wondering how you will deal with the bills and the needs of your children. At our law firm, we provide you with hands-on representation for all personal injury matters. We advise you about your options, keep you informed about developments in your case, and appear on your behalf at any legal proceeding, whether mediation or trial.
We represent injured individuals and families throughout southern Illinois, including the towns of Marion, Herrin, Carterville, Murphysboro, Carbondale, Benton, West Frankfort, Harrisburg, Eldorado, Cairo, Mounds City, Vienna, Metropolis, Golconda, Shawneetown, Carmi, Fairfield, Mt. Vernon, Salem, Du Quoin, Ridgway and Anna-Jonesboro.
Illinois law allows a person’s family or dependents to recover compensation when a person dies due to someone else’s negligence. Wrongful death as a legal term is a death that has been caused by the fault of another person. For example, deaths caused by automobile accidents, drunk driving, a defective or dangerous product, the construction of an unsound structure or building, or failing to diagnose a fatal disease may be considered under the law as “wrongful deaths.”
Wrongful death lawsuits or claims are generally filed by family members or beneficiaries of the deceased. In some instances, these claims are filed in order to obtain monetary damages to cover the earnings the deceased person would have provided. Other damages that may be recovered include: loss of love and affection, compensation for the deceased person’s pre-death pain and suffering, disability, and future earning potential, along with the survivors’ loss of support and other benefits.
If you live in the State of Illinois, and feel that a loved one has suffered a wrongful death, you may be eligible to receive compensation under the law. Please contact Lawler Brown today.
