Chicago Personal Injury Lawyers
Personal injuries are harm caused to any individual, whether it is physical or emotional. This can include broken bones and catastrophic injuries, a burn injury, damage to your property or your reputation, and the resulting consequences. At Harvey L. Walner & Associates, Ltd., our talented and compassionate Chicago personal injury lawyers have more than 75 years of experience fighting for the rights of personal injury victims. We are dedicated to winning you compensation for your injuries as quickly as possible. We don’t only care about the size of the settlement, we care about you and how you are treated and taken care of following whatever traumatic ordeal you have been through recently. We often negotiate with doctors and insurance companies to ensure you get the most out of your settlement. We don’t just stop caring once the check is cashed.

Personal injury claims must result from negligence, malpractice or unreasonably safe conditions. These can be caused by a number of parties, such as:
- Doctors, nurses and hospital staff
- Drug or product manufacturers
- Business owners
- Any person or organization that owes you the responsibility of regular care (such as nursing home employees, etc.)

How Long Do I Have To File An Injury Claim?
In Illinois, the statute of limitations is two years. This means that you have two years from the date of your injury (or in some cases two years from when you first became aware of your injury) to file your claim. One of the biggest mistakes you can make is to wait too long after your injury to file your claim. This is one reason that you should speak to one of our Chicago personal injury lawyers as soon as possible.
If you have been hurt and you believe another person is at fault, you may have a personal injury claim. An experienced personal injury lawyer, like those at Harvey L. Walner & Associates, Ltd. can review your case and determine whether you have a valid claim.
