Law Offices of Parente & Norem, P.C., a firm based in Chicago, Illinois, has announced with pride that they have won a 2 million dollar settlement for their client who had sustained a back injury in a car accident. Their client was Justin Wojtkowski, whose car was rear ended by a Will County Sheriff’s Deputy. The accident resulted in the herniation of a disk in Wojtkowski’s lower back rendering him unable to continue with his career. The 1.95 million dollar settlement was provided as compensation for the potential shortening of his career, as discussed in the article, “Chicago Personal Injury Attorney Wins 2 Million Dollar Settlement.”

The firm’s areas of practice include asbestos exposure; construction site accidents; defective products; medical malpractice; nursing home negligence; railroad accidents; slip, trip and fall accidents; transportation accidents; traumatic brain injury; uninsured motorist claims; vehicle accidents; work place accidents; and wrongful death.
Actually, personal injury and wrongful death have the capability to do more than just physical harm to the victims and their families. The victims and their families after the accident are often severely affected financially because of the injury or even death of the victim. There are substantial medical bills to pay and if the victim is a significant financial contributor to the household, the family may even be in danger of losing insurance benefits or even their home.
Vehicle accidents are a common cause of personal injury. Being involved in a car accident can be very stressful for the car driver and the passengers. This may even result into a wrongful death lawsuit if a loved one died due to the accident. Meanwhile, there are administrative matters that have to be attended to with regards to the accident. There may be a need to notify certain individuals or state agencies, according to state or local laws. The lawyers with the Law Offices of Parente & Norem, P.C. can handle the administrative issues, submit the required paperwork with local or state agencies, and start negotiations with the insurance companies.
The attorneys will also locate and interview eye witnesses, compile medical bills and various medical information, and collect information on lost wages and pain and suffering. All of that will help later when seeking compensation for damages like the amount won by Justin Wojtkowski.
Meanwhile, in wrongful death, in addition to the emotional distress felt by the loved ones of the victim, they also suffer financial hardships, especially if the victim was a main contributor to the finances of the household. There are lost wages and future earnings that need to be considered when seeking for compensation. Furthermore, the surviving family members may suddenly find themselves without medical insurance coverage and may no longer be able to pay for the mortgage and/or the college tuition fees. A lot of times, surviving family members do not know who to turn to in getting the answers to their questions on what really happened to their loved one. By using a number of legal tools, the wrongful death attorneys can obtain the information they need and then help them in securing the compensation that they deserve under the law.
Those who want to seek for compensation for a personal injury they have sustained may apply for a consultation with an attorney from the Chicago Personal Injury Attorneys law firm. Their offices are located in downtown Chicago. They can be contacted through the website, by phone or by email.
