DuPage County Personal Injury Attorney

The experienced attorneys at Stein & Shulman have helped scores of DuPage County residents seek justice and compensation after they have suffered an injury. We are aggressive advocates who are ready to help our clients seek compensation — and justice — they deserve. 

All of the attorneys at our firm graduated from John Marshall Law School in downtown Chicago, and have dedicated their careers to serving clients in the Chicagoland area. We frequently try cases in the DuPage County courthouse in Wheaton, and regularly travel to meet with clients from Wood Dale to Naperville, Wayne to Palisades, and everywhere in between. 

Personal Injury Lawsuits

Every day, researchers at Fermilab in Batavia send atomic particles crashing into one another to study what happens during these intentional accidents. These experiments are an important part of the growing field of particle physics. 

Outside of the lab, DuPage County residents are not intentionally getting into accidents, but they sometimes still occur. If you are seriously injured in such an accident, you may begin to wonder why this happened to you and how you are going to get your life back on track. 

The Stein & Shulman team can’t prevent accidents or explain why they happen to good people, but we can help our clients recover from them. Our personal injury attorneys have helped residents of DuPage County and beyond recover millions of dollars in compensation for injuries they have suffered. 

While our clients concentrate on recovering from their injures, we get to work: 

  • Investigating and photographing the site of the accident;
  • Interviewing any and all witnesses;
  • Gathering information about the negligent party’s actions;
  • Examining police reports and medical data; and 
  • Consulting with medical specialists or other experts to validate our findings.

We also become the point person for all of our client’s interactions with their insurance company. 

Our goal is always to get our clients the money they deserve and need to heal, so they can move on with their lives. Three of the most common types of personal injury accidents we see in DuPage County are automobile accidents, slip and fall accidents, and dog bites. 

Automobile Accidents 

DuPage County’s proximity to O’Hare International Airport means there are always a lot of people traveling through the county. People headed to the airport are often in a hurry or anxious. Those coming home from a trip are tired and eager to get to their destination. These situations lead to an unusually large number of traffic accidents. 

Distracted driving, traffic, and the constantly-in-need-of-repair state of our roads leads to even more accidents. 

The experienced automobile accident attorneys at Stein & Shulman have helped the victims of car, truck, motorcycle, and Uber/Lyft accidents get compensation for the injuries they suffered in auto accidents in DuPage County and throughout the Chicagoland area. 

Slip & Fall Accidents 

DuPage County is consistently ranked as one of the most desirable places to live in America. One of the things mentioned in the articles toting life in Naperville or Clarendon Hills is how friendly everyone is. And it’s true, people in DuPage County are always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need and wave hello to their neighbors. 

Sometimes when meeting with a client, they tell us that they feel bad for seeking compensation from someone who has injured them. This is particularly true in slip and fall cases where our client has been injured on their friend’s property, or at a local store, they love shopping at. We remind these clients that people and businesses have insurance for this very reason.

As attorneys, it is our job to negotiate with the defendant’s attorneys and all of the various insurance companies involved in the case. That way, our clients can preserve the relationship they have with the defendant, and get the compensation they need to recover from their serious injury. 

Dog Bites 

Residents of DuPage county love their pooches! Unfortunately, even the most mild-mannered pup can have a bad day. When one of our clients is bitten by a dog, we step in and make sure the case is handled appropriately. 

Our team can work with the pet owner, other attorneys, and all the insurance companies involved to sort things out and get our client the compensation they deserve for the injury they have suffered. 

We Fight For Your Full Monetary Compensation 

At Stein & Shulman, we provide aggressive representation to DuPage County residents who have suffered a serious personal injury. 

We know that no matter what type of injury you have suffered, from a “simple” fracture to a spinal cord injury, the pain you have gone through and continue to endure is almost always accompanied by financial difficulties. Our goal is to obtain damages to cover your costs, both calculable and intangible, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income, present, and future
  • Property damage
  • Physical pain
  • Emotional anguish
  • Permanent disfigurement or disability
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

If we can prove that the accused acted with disregard for human safety or engaged in criminal behavior, Illinois law allows us to seek punitive damages.
