Personal Injury

Do you need a personal injury lawyer for an injury you sustained in Cook County or one of the surrounding counties in Illinois?

We can help.

Sustaining a serious personal injury can have a very negative impact on your daily life. Simple, routine tasks become difficult or impossible when performed in constant pain. If you have dependents and you're missing work, then other people suffer from your injury as well.

If you've been injured through the negligence or intentional act of another person or company, you may be able to recover damages for your injuries. These damages often include compensation for unpaid medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and more.

You need to make sure that you hire an experienced personal injury lawyer who can get the best possible settlement or verdict for you. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff of referral counselors can help you find an experienced injury lawyer who is right for you.

Meeting the American Bar Association's Standards for Lawyer Referral, our service has among the highest experience requirements for its personal injury lawyers in the entire nation.

What Does It Cost?

If you meet with the personal injury lawyer we refer, the lawyer will collect $30 at the initial consultation (which goes towards the operating costs of our service). The lawyer may also charge a fee for their time/service, which should be discussed directly with the lawyer prior to the meeting. During or after your initial consultation, the lawyer will discuss the legal fees required to handle your matter. There is no obligation on your part or the lawyer to go beyond the first initial telephone contact or meeting.

The Lawyer Referral Service is a non-profit public service of the Chicago Bar Association. Trusted since 1874.
