The Stein & Shulman team has a long history of helping people in Will County seek justice and compensation after they have suffered an injury. We regularly try cases in the Will County courthouse in Joliet, and we have traveled to meet with injured clients from Bolingbrook to Braidwood, to the Illinois state line, and everywhere in between.
Our years of experience helping injured people in Will County and beyond have shaped us into aggressive advocates who will do everything we can to help our clients get the maximum amount of money possible to compensate them for their injuries.
Personal Injury Lawsuits in Will County
When Will County was formed in 1836, it was named after Dr. Conrad Will, a businessman who owned a salt company and served as a member of the first Illinois Constitutional Convention and as a member of the Illinois Legislature. Whoever chose Dr. Will as the county’s namesake picked well. Will County has a strong industrial base, and its residents have a passion for serving others.
The county has long been known for ExxonMobil’s Joliet Refinery and the many natural gas pipelines, railroads, and major highways that crisscross the landscape. Thanks to its industrial know-how and strong infrastructure, Will County is now earning a reputation as a distribution hub for Amazon. The online sales giant has distribution centers in Channahon, Crest Hill, Joliet, Monee, and Romeoville.
These blue-collar jobs support families and communities that look out for one another. When a local resident is injured, coworkers and others in the community often come together to support them. They make meals, drive the injured person to doctor appointments, and even support them financially. This is amazing, but it is not always enough. That’s where we come in.
The personal injury attorneys at Stein & Shulman have helped injured residents of Will County seek compensation when they are hurt through no fault of their own. As soon as we take a case, our client can relax and begin to focus solely on their healing. We take over all the legal aspects of the case. We begin by:
- Investigating the site and circumstances of your injury;
- Examining police reports and medical data;
- Interviewing witnesses; and
- Consulting with experts.
We also become the point person for all of our client’s negotiations with their insurance company. Our goal is to get our clients all the money they deserve and need to heal, so they can move on with their lives.
As home to The Chicagoland Speedway, which hosts a NASCAR Sprint Cup race in addition to long-running races on the Route 66 Dirt Oval and the drag strip, Will County knows a thing or two about driving. You might even say that Will County residents have a need for speed.
The county’s racing heritage and the sheer number of vehicles on the road may have something to do with the number of serious accidents that occur in Will County. The experienced accident attorneys on the Stein & Shulman team have helped Will County residents recover millions of dollars in compensation for injuries suffered in car, truck, motorcycle, and Uber/Lyft accidents. 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
Bison may roam the Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie, but don’t let that fool you into thinking that Will County is a rural area. It is one of the most populous and fastest-growing counties in Illinois.
The Stein & Shulman team has helped a number of Will County residents seek compensation for injuries suffered during a slip and fall accident at a local business or on government-owned property. As proud Midwesterners, suing someone whose property we slipped or tripped on is not our first inclination. Instead, we pick ourselves up with an “Ope!” and try to move on with our lives.
Sometimes though, a slip and fall can lead to serious injury. Our firm has helped Will County residents get financial help for things like serious broken bones, brain injuries, head injuries, and post-fall surgeries. There is nothing wrong with asking for help when someone else’s negligence is the reason you are suffering.
Our firm’s office is in downtown Chicago, and our team members live all over the Chicago area, so it is easy for us to travel to the scene of a slip-and-fall accident to gather evidence, talk to witnesses, and meet with injured clients who are not up to making the trip to our office.
We Fight For Your Full Monetary Compensation
At Stein & Shulman, we provide advice, counsel, and aggressive representation to Will County residents who have suffered a serious personal injury. All of the attorneys at our firm graduated from John Marshall Law School in Chicago, and have dedicated their careers to serving clients in the Chicago area. We are here to help if you have been involved in a car accident, injured yourself in a slip and fall accident, 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.
