Imagine that you got hurt at your job and the company feels you were at fault or being negligent, so they refuse to compensate you for the medical bills that you sustained. What is worse, they fire you for being a “safety risk” to the job. What do you do? If you are in Illinois, a Personal injury lawyer in Chicago may be able to help. The Law Offices of Friend, Levinson & Turner, LTD wants to be the one to help you see if you have a case.
Because the laws governing the State of Illinois are so stringent and difficult to decipher when it comes to understanding your liability rights for injuries, not to mention the many factors involving how you sustained the injury, you would just about need a professor of law to help you get through it. Or, you really don’t have to go that far, just hire an experienced attorney who knows how to navigate his or her way through the difficult process. However, be sure to started right on the process of getting a lawyer to handle your personal injury case, as the laws in Illinois regarding the statute of limitations is a 2-year window. That window starts on the date of your injury. In the cases of your injury being caused by medical malpractice, that date starts on the day you were aware of your injury, unless it involves a child, in which case the window becomes 8 years. Even then, that claim should be filed no later than the 22nd birthday of the minor.
