Had a great experience with your firm. Everyone was very helpful and always returned phone calls in a short period of time. I've had past experiences with other firms with no one ever returning phone calls, and it would take forever to get in touch with someone much less any answers. Thank you for everything. I was very pleased with my experience with your firm.

Yes, the insurance company that represents the person at fault for the accident will have a team of experienced attorneys, investigators and adjusters working to attempt to minimize any compensation you receive. You need an experienced Personal Injury Attorney working for you to help ensure you receive the maximum compensation for your injuries.
You should retain a Personal Injury attorney as soon as possible after your accident.
No, you should hire a Personal Injury attorney as soon as possible. The insurance company representing the person at fault for the accident will immediately begin their investigation. Unfortunately, if you wait too long, valuable evidence to your case may be lost, and this may affect the amount you will be compensated. By hiring a Personal Injury attorney you will be protecting your legal rights and they can immediately begin investigation on your behalf, by preserving any physical evidence, taking photos of the accident scene, your vehicle, locating and interviewing witnesses, and making photo documentation of your injuries and recovery process.
You can retain our firm for your Personal Injury case on a contingency fee basis. What this means is that the Law Office of Daniel E Goodman will collect our fees when your case is settled or tried to verdict from the proceeds of the compensation we secure for you . This allows you to hire a personal injury attorney without having to pay any upfront fees.
The majority of our cases are 33 1/3% contingency fee.
You could hire any lawyer licensed to practice in Illinois, but not all lawyers have the training, and trial experience that we have at The Law Office of Daniel E Goodman. We always represent our clients' best interests. If you needed heart surgery, would you rather have it done by a cardiologist who is a specialist in heart conditions or a podiatrist who specializes in feet? While both are doctors, the cardiologist has the training and experience you need for your particular medical treatment. We believe the same is true for lawyers, especially when you need a personal injury lawyer in Illinois. The divorce lawyer that prepared your divorce may not have the personal injury experience that is necessary to ensure your legal rights are protected and that your receive the maximum compensation for your injuries.
If necessary, when a client cannot get to our offices, we will arrange for one of our personal injury attorneys to come to you.
While there are still drivers on the road who either are uninsured or underinsured (meaning they are in accident where they cause injuries and damages which exceed the limits on their liability policies), this does not mean you cannot seek compensation. We can check your policy for uninsured/underinsured coverage. Further, we will investigate to ascertain if the person who caused the your damages or injuries has assets that can be accessed to compensate you for injuries they caused.
Your friend/relative/boyfriend has insurance that they pay premiums for. If you decide not to seek compensation for your injuries, the only party that benefits is the insurance company representing them.
At the Law Offices of Daniel E Goodman, we recognize that some our clients have schedules that prohibit them from coming in during normal business hours, in those cases we will stay late or come in early, when necessary, to meet with our clients.
No, there is no minimum or maximum settlement amount. The amount of a settlement in a personal injury case depends on lots of factors and the circumstances of each individual case, including:
If you are not happy with your current representation, you can hire another attorney at anytime without incurring any additional costs or fees.
