Mount Vernon, IL Personal Injury Attorneys

Get Experienced & Compassionate Legal Representation On Your Side

Suffering a serious injury can have a negative impact on your life. In addition to missing work to make the best possible recovery, you lose the ability to support your family. On top of everything, the negligent party and their insurance company may deny being responsible for the accident and your injuries, meaning you will have to pay all expenses yourself.

If you were injured in an accident caused by negligence, our Mt. Vernon personal injury lawyers at Sam C. Mitchell & Associates can help you recover your entitled compensation. With more than a century of combined legal experience and over $100 million recovered on behalf of our clients, we can evaluate your case, determine your available legal options, and maximize the award or settlement you deserve.

Personal Injury Laws in Illinois

To successfully file a personal injury lawsuit, you must prove that the other party had a duty of care, breached that duty, the breach caused your injury, and there are damages associated with the injury. A plaintiff can recover both economic (e.g. medical bills, lost earnings, property damage, etc.) and noneconomic damages (e.g. pain and suffering, emotional trauma, loss of consortium, etc.).
