Personal Injury Attorneys in Rockford
Supporting Clients with Personal Injury Claims
When an unforeseen injury occurs because of negligence or a wrongful act, those who’ve been hurt may want to hold the responsible party accountable. At Reno & Zahm LLP, we can help if you find yourself faced with a personal injury claim against you or your company, and we can also offer assistance fighting your own claim if you were injured.
Examples of common personal injury incidents include:
- Car Accidents
- Trucking Collisions
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Pedestrian Accidents
- Medical Malpractice
- Dog Bites
- Slips and Falls
- Assault and Battery
- Wrongful Death
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Although our attorneys are skilled litigators who can comfortably argue for your interests in front of a judge or jury, many personal injury disputes are resolved outside of the courtroom. We can assist you and your opposition in reaching an agreeable resolution by offering our services as mediators and arbitrators in an alternative dispute forum.
Retaining an Injury Attorney for Your Accident
If you are facing an injury claim from either side, you may not know how to proceed. You may even be unsure if you should hire a personal injury attorney.
Insurance may not be sufficient to cover the damages suffered during the accident. And, if you were injured, you will likely need time to take care of your own recovery. Only an attorney with experience in personal injury law can fully protect your interests and tackle any complexities that may come up in your case.
Our injury attorneys in Rockford can help you achieve whatever your goals may be concerning legal action. We represent plaintiffs and defendants alike; because of this, we can anticipate how the other side will argue their case.
What Are Common Results of a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
If you’re the defendant in a personal injury lawsuit, someone is attempting to hold you accountable for an injury they suffered. Reno & Zahm LLP can fight their claim against you by presenting an argument that diminishes or eliminates your responsibility for causing injury. Even if you believe judgment will sway in the plaintiff’s favor, we can take steps to mitigate the damages that can be sought and how much you’ll need to pay.
Plaintiffs in personal injury lawsuits can be awarded payment from the defendant for injuries suffered as a result of negligence or a wrongful act.
Damage awards are often meant to cover the cost of:
- Medical treatment
- Loss of income
- Damage to property
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of Enjoyment
- Loss of Consortium
Any of these may be awarded as damages for costs already incurred or expected in the future as a result of the injury. The plaintiff’s attorney fees, as well as punitive damages meant to punish a defendant, can also be awarded.
