This can be quickly noted about personal injury representation: It applies to a broad universe.

Many readers of our blog at the established Chicago metro law firm of Scott W. Sheen & Associates perhaps think first – and solely – of car crashes when they consider the personal injury realm.

That is certainly understandable. In fact, most law firms providing services in that legal sphere do focus on adverse consequences linked with motor vehicle accidents.

Comprehensive personal injury advocacy extends to matters far beyond that, though. Modern-day life in the United States is generally fast-paced and complex for most people across many dimensions. That reality breeds risks, which can spawn material downsides where third-party negligence is involved.

By that we mean this: some careless or otherwise indifferent behavior of one or more individuals that causes injury to an innocent party.

The scenarios that play into that are many and varied. In addition to the above-cited motor vehicle accidents, they include matters like these:

  • Premises liability (for example, injuries linked to slip and fall accidents, dog bites and inadequate security)
  • Product liability (injuries resulting from dangerous or defective products)
  • Medical malpractice (e.g., surgical error, misdiagnosis or medication mistake)
  • Work-related mishaps yielding serious injuries or wrongful death

That bullet point list is broad yet only a partial rendering of the personal injury universe. We duly note on our firm’s website that, “Personal injury/negligence cases arise in all types of situations and occur in a variety of ways.”

A proven legal team with a confirmed performance record on behalf of injury victims stands ready always to deliver best-case results for individuals and families needing trusted legal advocacy.
