Personal Injury Lawyers in Peoria Illinois

When you’re hurt in a car accident, or injured from something that is not your fault – the law calls it a tort.  The person responsible for hurting you is called a tortfeasor – they often get sued.  But because of insurance laws – the deep pockets in most personal injury cases – many times the insurance company gets sued to honor polices in place to protect against such things

Personal injury lawyers in Peoria Illinois help innocent people get compensation for their pain and suffering.  Often these cases are taken on a contingency, which is not common in most attorney client relationships because most lawyers charge by the hour.  The possibility of a large recover, however, means that personal injury attorneys are willing to work on a contingency basis and typically take one-third of the total recovery.

Here are the types of personal injury cases that attorneys in Peoria, Illinois, often take:

  1. car accidents
  2. DUI accidents
  3.  motorcycle accidents
  4. slip and fall injuries
  5. boating accidents
  6. distracted driving accidnts
  7. wrongful death
  8. brain injuries
  9. medical malpractice claims

The first lawyer that I would turn to for a personal injury legal question in Peoria, Illinois, is Fadi Rustom.

Workers’ Comp Lawyers in Peoria Illinois

When you’re injured at work in Illinois, the business is required to have insurance policies to protect its employees and provide them compensation – perhaps even for life – as a result of injuries that happen during the course of employment.

Many law offices in Peoria Illinois exclusively specialize in workers’ compensation cases because there is an entire statute in Illinois dedicated to processing the cases.  Workers’ comp even has its own courts so please hire someone that concentrates in workers’ comp if you are injured on the job.

Typical workers’ comp cases include specific injuries found in the Worker’s Compensation Act of Illinois, including:

  1. accidental death,
  2. loss of a limb
  3. carpal tunnel syndrome
  4. hearing loss from explosions
  5. disability arising from injury

For a worker’s compensation lawyer in Peoria, Illinois – I turn to the Law Offices of Pat Jennetten.

Immigration lawyers in Peoria Illinois

Immigration lawyers help people of the world navigate the complex legal system administered by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). The process at its core can be quite political and very confusing.

Finding a good immigration lawyer is difficult but groups like the America immigration lawyers Association (AILA) helps its members better serve their clients with tons of resources.

  1. adjustment of legal status (i-485) common for family law issues.
  2. H-1B work visas (form i-129).
  3. L-1 work visas (also from i-129).

Business lawyers in Peoria Illinois

ANY business lawyer should know that lawyers are an expense and not a profit center. A good business lawyer will help you weigh the costs against the benefits of the legal service you need.

Business may have a general counsel to help guide the company, but that is usually a corporate law position helping with operation issues.  But business law can encompass the following areas:

  • employment legal issues: this can be any company policy, from maternity leave to an employee handbook. Employment law is an a practice area unto itself and discussed more below.
  • contract issues: All businesses are contracts.  Contracts form business. Contracts are how businesses survive, or die in the case of bankruptcy. Contracts can be as simple as paying a dollar for a can of soda – to as complicated as having numerous ambiguous definitions of option contingent on certain things that may never happen.
  • regulatory issues facing businesses:  Some businesses face little regulatory hurdles from the government, like the herbal supplement industry – while others may have lots of environmental regulations to comply with like mining and certain industries.

As you can see, business law has many different subparts.  In Peoria Illinois, if I need a business lawyer, well, I often ask myself what I would do.
