Marion Personal Injury Lawyers

Call (618) 505-1660 to Let Our Experienced Legal Team Fight for You

Accidents can happen in life, most of them minor in nature. But when a devastating accident results in injury, your life can turn upside down. Not only does a serious injury take weeks, months, or years to completely heal, being forced out of work can make it extremely difficult to take care of your family. On top of all that, the at-fault party and their insurance company may deny liability, which means you will have to pay for everything out of your own pocket.

At Sam C. Mitchell & Associates, we have helped our clients obtain favorable outcomes by guiding them through the complexities of the legal process and protecting their rights and best interests. Our Marion personal injury attorneys can investigate the accident, gather evidence, negotiate with insurers, and maximize your entitled compensation.

Here are some benefits of hiring our firm:

  • More than a century of collective legal experience
  • Over $100 million recovered on behalf of our clients
  • You don’t have to pay us anything unless we win your case
  • More than 3,700 cases handled

Illinois Personal Injury Laws

If you sustain an injury in an accident caused by a negligent party in Illinois, you may file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party to recover both economic and noneconomic damages. Economic damages include medical expenses, lost earnings, and other tangible damages, while noneconomic damages consist of pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment in life.

Common types of cases our legal team handles include:

  • Auto Accidents
  • Dog Bites
  • Drunk Driving & Dram Shops
  • Insurance & Bad Faith Claims
  • Medical Malpractice & Birth Injuries
  • Nursing Home Neglect
  • Pedestrian Accidents
  • Product Liability
  • Slip & Fall
  • Trucking Accidents
  • Workers’ Compensation
  • Wrongful Death

An injured party has a very limited time to file a personal injury lawsuit.

File Your Claim as Soon as Possible

According to 735 Illinois Compiled Statutes section 5/13-202 of Illinois law, injury victims have two years to file a personal injury claim before the statute of limitations ends. If you don’t file your claim within this time period you will lose your right to recover compensation, no matter how serious your injuries. There are, however, exceptions to this rule which can extend or shorten the amount of time you have to file a claim which is why it’s best to contact an attorney from Sam C. Mitchell & Associates as soon as possible to discuss your case. We offer free consultations, so you have nothing to lose by reaching out to our firm.
