Recovering Compensation For Injury Victims

Personal injury is the area of the law concerned with compensating victims who have been hurt by another party's negligence. If you have been injured in an accident, you may have a right to be compensated for the physical, emotional and financial losses you have suffered.

At the Peoria law firm of Schierer & Ritchie, LLC, we have extensive experience dealing with a wide variety of personal injury cases. If you have been injured in an accident, our lawyers can meet with you in person to help you sort through the legal issues associated with your situation.

Personal injury is a particularly broad area of the law, encompassing many dangerous situations, including:

This list is far from exhaustive. In general, if someone creates a hazardous situation that causes injury to another person, the negligent party can be sued under personal injury laws. This is true for everything from motorcycle collisions and mesothelioma/asbestos exposure to slip-and-fall injuries.

Don't Pay For Another Person's Negligence

In some situations, people who have been injured in accidents feel reluctant to file lawsuits against the negligent parties who caused their injuries. Victims may feel embarrassed by the accident, even if it wasn't their fault.

The fact is, however, that everyone — doctors, building owners and drivers alike — is subject to strict rules and standards that govern his or her behavior. If you have been injured because someone else failed to live up to these standards, you shouldn't be forced to suffer economic losses. You have suffered enough already.
