Dedicated Elgin Attorney Assists Personal Injury Victims
Experienced lawyer seeks compensation for clients harmed by others’ negligence
An injury caused by someone else’s negligence or misconduct creates physical and financial problems for victims. At the Law Offices of Jonathan L. Carbary, Ltd., people who have been hurt receive strong legal support so that they can collect payment for medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Whether you have been injured in a car crash or injured in another way, attorney Carbary will aggressively pursue a fair result either at trial on in a settlement. Illinois has a two-year statute of limitations for personal injury cases, but immediate action gives you the best chance to keep track of key evidence and witnesses. Once you retain the firm, you will have a tough advocate on your side so that you can win the result you need to overcome your challenges.
Illinois firm litigates claims arising out of vehicle accidents
The firm represents clients from Kane, DeKalb and McHenry counties in all types of vehicle crash cases, providing assistance with:
- Insurance claims — Hiring a skillful lawyer is crucial if you have been injured in an Illinois auto accident. In Illinois, a fault-based jurisdiction, crash victims are eligible to sue the driver responsible for the accident or file a claim with their insurance company. You can also seek payment from your own insurer. Mr. Carbary reviews each relevant fact and advises clients which option works best in their situation.
- Motorcycle crashes — Collisions between motorcycles and larger vehicles trigger serious harm for riders. The firm enforces the rights of injured riders and pursues appropriate damages against negligent drivers.
- Bicycle accidents — Attorney Carbary represents bicycle riders who have been hit by cars and trucks so that they can obtain the compensation they are entitled to under law.
Knowledgeable advocate represents plaintiffs in slip and fall cases
Property owners have a legal responsibility to maintain safe conditions to protect people on their premises from suffering a harmful fall. Attorney Jonathan Carbary investigates whether a failure to obey reasonable care standards led to the incident. Even if you bear some responsibility for your fall, you can still obtain damages in a premises liability action as long as the percentage of fault assigned to you is less than 50 percent.
Attorney asserts the rights of individuals injured by dog bites
If you have been hurt in an unprovoked dog attack, Illinois law offers financial relief for your injuries. Pet owners are strictly liable for the harm done by their animals as long as the victim did not trespass or provoke the incident. Attorney Carbary prepares thorough cases on behalf of dog bite victims.
Experienced attorney advises family members after a wrongful death
When a person dies because of someone else’s negligence or recklessness, the victim’s loved ones are changed forever. A measure of legal relief is available to family members to pay for damages such as funeral costs, medical expenses and the loss of companionship. Attorney Jonathan Carbary files wrongful death claims for estate representatives and beneficiaries. Prompt action is necessary, however, as the statute of limitation runs two years from the decedent’s death.
