Car Accident Injuries And Injuries Related to Other Vehicle Accidents

Elman Joseph Law Group, LLC has handled thousands of vehicle accident injury lawsuits. Our car accident attorneys in Chicago assess each case on an individual basis to determine what level of compensation is warranted given the circumstances surrounding the accident and the resulting injuries. It is common for injuries sustained during vehicle accidents to have both medical and financial consequences, either on a temporary or permanent basis. Once the circumstances and all consequences of the accident and injuries are determined, our attorneys determine the best method to attain the highest level of compensation for the client. Among the methods to attain compensation via a lawsuit include settlement, court trial, or mediation.

Pedestrian Accident Injuries

Due to various factors, injuries that happen when a person is hit by a vehicle frequently are serious in nature – and, as seen in many Chicago-area pedestrian accidents – can become life-threatening if not fatal. Injuries that can happen when a person is hit by a vehicle range both in severity and extent. There are a broad range of injuries that can result, among them broken bones, abrasions, bruises, and chest and abdominal trauma. Among the most frequent serious injuries are head injuries, which by their nature can be complex. Due to the range and seriousness of injuries that occur during pedestrian accidents, the Chicago car accident lawyers at the Elman Joseph Law Group, LLC work diligently to attain the highest levels of available compensation for clients who have been hit by a car or other vehicle.

Bicycle Accident Injuries

As bicycling continues to gain popularity both as a form of recreation as well as a way of commuting, the potential for bicycle accidents has increased. There are many reasons as to why a bicycle accident can occur. Streets are often busy with traffic, and an ongoing consideration is whether bicyclists can safely interact with motorists. Other types of bicycle accidents include “dooring” accidents, which can occur both in urban and suburban settings. While some bicycle accidents result in minor injuries such as scrapes and bruises, often more serious injuries result. Many serious bicycle accidents involve broken bones; spinal cord and back injuries; brain injuries and injuries to the thoracic region.

Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Motorcycle accidents commonly result in serious and life-threatening accident injuries. While there are many reasons as to why such motorcycle crashes occur, one of most common reasons for motorcycle collisions – and one that often results in fatal accident injuries – is when another vehicle makes a left-hand turn immediately in front of an oncoming motorcycle. When this occurs, a collision often results. This type of frontal collision can cause many types of injuries to the motorcyclist, including severe trauma to the head, neck and spinal column, as well as to the thoracic region. Unfortunately, such frontal collisions often lead to the death of the motorcyclist at the accident scene. The car accident lawyers at our Chicago firm work to get as much compensation as possible for those injured during motorcycle accidents. For those accidents in which the motorcyclist (and, if applicable, passenger) is killed, a wrongful death lawsuit can be filed by relevant parties.

Premises Liability Accidents

The Elman Joseph Law Group, LLC also handles other lawsuits that occur when a person is hurt or killed due to the negligence or recklessness of others. These lawsuits vary by their underlying circumstances. Some examples include instances when a person has been injured on properties due to negligence, i.e. premises liability cases. Among the most common of these premises liability cases are “slip & fall” cases. In these premises liability cases, our Chicago personal injury trial lawyers have a proven record in success in attaining high levels of monetary damages – even in instances when the final settlement offer is inadequate. An example of such a case was a “slip & fall” lawsuit filed after a woman slipped and fell in a bakery and suffered a rotator cuff injury. The Elman Joseph Law Group, LLC was able to get a $746,000 Cook County jury verdict after taking the case to court after there was no settlement offer from the insurance company.

Nursing Home Abuse and Nursing Home Accidents

The Elman Joseph Law Group, LLC handles lawsuits involving injuries or death that occur due to nursing home accidents, nursing home neglect, and nursing home accidents. As seen in various statistics, articles, and nursing home lawsuits, many injuries and deaths that happen to Illinois nursing home residents are due to various types of mistreatment. Among the most common injuries – that at times result in fatalities – are due to nursing home falls; the development of pressure sores; lack of proper administration of medicines; and lack of proper supervision. The Elman Joseph Law Group, LLC’s nursing home accident lawyers will investigate and pursue compensation for each case to determine how best to get compensation commensurate to the level of harm that has occurred due to nursing home mistreatment.

Other Accident Injuries

There are a wide range of other injuries and deaths that result from the negligence or carelessness of others. Among other types of accidents are those that occur in the workplace (such as work injuries, construction injuries, and deaths) as well as other instances of harm, such as dog attacks.

In these cases the Chicago trial attorneys at the Elman Joseph Law Group, LLC have a proven capability of taking cases to court - and achieving notable court awards - in instances when the final settlement offer is inadequate.

Traumatic Brain Injuries

While there are a broad range of accident injuries and associated health impacts, among the potentially most serious injuries are traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Traumatic brain injuries often have many short-term impacts, and depending on the type of brain injury can cause ongoing and possibly permanent impairments. Brain injuries can have complex impacts on one’s health and ability to function. It is not uncommon for serious brain injuries to require significant recovery times, which require significant medical treatment. This medical treatment often takes the form of significant testing (including MRIs); surgeries; and physical and occupational rehabilitation. As serious head injuries often require significant medical care and incur other adverse financial consequences, being able to get sufficient monetary compensation is very important for those who have suffered head injuries. Serving victims throughout the Chicago area, the car accident attorneys at the Elman Joseph Law Group, LLC has substantial experience in dealing with such complex injuries and their consequences and achieving attractive compensation levels for such harm.
