The experienced attorneys at Stein & Shulman have a long history of helping McHenry County residents seek justice and compensation after they have suffered an injury.
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 McHenry County courthouse in Woodstock, and regularly travel to meet with clients from the Illinois state line to Huntly, and everywhere in between.
We are aggressive advocates who are ready to help our clients seek justice and get the compensation they deserve. Over the years, our personal injury attorneys have helped residents of McHenry County and beyond recover millions of dollars in compensation for injuries they have suffered.
Personal Injury Lawsuits
At Stein & Shulman, we help our clients recover when they have suffered a serious injury through no fault of their own.
While our clients concentrate on recovering from their injures, we:
- Document the site of the accident;
- Interview any witnesses;
- Gather information about the negligent party’s actions;
- Examine police reports and medical data; and
- Consult 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.
We focus on getting 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 McHenry County are automobile accidents, slip and fall accidents, and dog bites.
Automobile Accidents In McHenry County
McHenry County has a rich railroading history. Union boasts the country’s largest railroad museum, and Eugene Debs was held in the jail complex at the Old McHenry County Courthouse during the tragic Pullman Strike.
Many county residents jump a Metra train into downtown Chicago on a daily basis, but for the most part, trains have given way to cars. Whether you are zipping along the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway, or traveling down a familiar gravel road in one of the more rural portions of the county, there is nothing like the freedom you feel behind the wheel.
Unfortunately, that freedom also results in a number of 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 McHenry County and throughout the Chicagoland area.
In many of these cases, our client would have been strong-armed into accepting a lowball offer from their insurance company if it were not for our assistance.
Slip & Fall Accidents In McHenry County
Whether it is a simple trip to the store or a bike ride on the Prairie Path, McHenry County residents like to get out and about. Most of the time, leaving the house is a mundane experience. Sometimes, however, a slip and fall accident makes what would otherwise be a forgettable day one that you remember for the rest of your life.
If you have been hurt in a slip and fall accident anywhere in McHenry County or the surrounding area, the Stein & Shulman team is ready to help. As attorneys that live and work locally, we can easily travel to the scene of the accident to gather physical evidence, and interview witnesses, no matter where in the Chicagoland area it occurred.
Dog Bites In McHenry County
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.
Dogs are treated like members of the family, so accusing someone of harboring a vicious beast does not go over well. On the other hand, if no action is taken following a bite, the dog may strike again. 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
The Stein & Shulman, we provide advice, counsel, and aggressive representation to McHenry County residents who have suffered a serious personal injury. We are here to help if you have been involved in a car accident, injured yourself in a slip and fall accident, been bitten by a dog, or have been harmed in some other way that was no fault of your own.
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.
