Illinois Personal Injury Lawyers

Illinois personal injury lawyers represent those who have been hurt in the nation's fifth largest state. Like New York City and State, Illinois is also many times thought of as Chicago and "the rest of the state".

Find a qualified and extremely competent personal injury lawyer in your location.
 

In order to choose a qualified Illinois personal injury attorney, first check out the general page on personal injury lawyers in order to get an understanding of important questions to ask when interviewing attorneys.

Illinois is known as the "Land of Lincoln" since the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln spent most of his adult life here and practiced law in Springfield, the state capital, in the heart of the state. Outside of Chicago, Illinois is a very rural and agricultural state with many small towns scattered north to south. Even so, the once mostly-Republican state has voted Democratic in the last 4 presidential elections, signaling a shift in political climate.

If your injury occurred in the Chicago area, it is advisable to retain a Chicago personal injury lawyer who has practiced for a while in Cook County and the surrounding counties. This attorney will have an advantage in knowing the policies, procedures, social and political climate and attitudes for that region over an "outsider". If the injury occurred in another part of the state, then it is advisable to retain an Illinois personal injury lawyer practicing in the county in which the accident happened for the same reasons. Whether the prospective lawyer hails from Rockport, Moline, Peoria, Decatur, Danville, Belleville or Carbondale, it will be helpful to find a "local" to represent your interests.

In searching for a list Illinois personal injury lawyer candidate, you can start at the Illinois State Bar Association, which offers a referral service unlike many other states. Co-workers, friends and neighbors are also resources that are available in order to help put together a list of candidates.

Once several Illinois personal injury lawyers have been added to the list, then its time to call for a free consultation (make sure it is free) and start the interview process. You may wish to see if your prospective Illinois personal injury attorney is staying current with case law and throw a few little "tests" their way. For instance, you may want to ask your prospect if they are familiar with Gee v. Treece, which is a wrongful death lawsuit brought about by the heirs to the estate.

Another case worth quoting is Bruckner v. Mercola, which is a medical malpractice case involving mislabeled medication. If these two cases aren't on your candidate's radar this next one should be. The Estate of Robert Anthony Russ v. City of Chicago and Van Watts involved a $9.6 million award for the plaintiff's estate because of a wrongful death caused by a police officer.

Ask the Illinois personal injury lawyer about his / her continuing legal education (CLE) courses that they take to stay current in the field. Also, find out where the candidate went to law school and how long they have practiced in their particular district in Illinois. Find out number of trials and success rate within the district is also important.

Pick an attorney with whom you have a good rapport. Remember, that the litigation may be a long one, so choosing a qualified Illinois personal injury lawyer that you get along with will be invaluable over the long haul.
