Plainfield, IL Personal Injury Lawyers Ready to Fight for Fair Compensation

If you have been seriously injured, you will need to understand who was responsible and what options you may have for addressing the ways you have been affected. If another person or party was at fault, such as a driver who violated traffic laws and caused an accident or a manufacturer of a product that did not function correctly, you may have a personal injury case, and you may be able to recover financial compensation.

With 20+ years of experience, Fotopoulos Law Office can provide you with knowledge and compassion to guide you through this difficult time.

Personal Injury Claims in Plainfield

Your life can be severely disrupted if you are seriously injured in an accident. Depending on the severity of your injuries, you may miss weeks or months of work, you may be unable to engage in the activities you once enjoyed, and you may face huge medical bills. You should not have to bear the brunt of the financial costs of someone else's negligence.

At Fotopoulos Law Office, we handle a variety of personal injury cases in Plainfield, including but not limited to:

  • Motor vehicle accidents - With millions of motor vehicles on the road each day, accidents can occur for many reasons. Negligent drivers are often responsible for collisions, and they may be held responsible for engaging in dangerous behaviors such as drunk driving or distracted driving. If you have been injured in a car crash, we can help you hold the at-fault party accountable so that you can receive compensation for your injuries.
  • Motorcycle wrecks - These types of accidents often lead to catastrophic injuries due to the lack of protection for motorcyclists. Collisions can occur due to the negligence of other drivers, such as failure to yield the right of way, reckless driving, or tailgating. Injured motorcyclists often suffer from fractures, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and serious road rash. To address the impact of these injuries, we work to ensure that they can recover compensation from negligent drivers who caused motorcycle accidents.
  • Pedestrian and bicycle accidents - These accidents usually involve people being struck by motor vehicles while walking or crossing roads, or biking in designated bike lanes. Victims may endure severe physical pain and debilitating injuries, and we work to ensure that negligent drivers are held responsible for causing them to suffer harm.
  • Truck crashes - Commercial trucks can cause extensive damage in collisions due to their size and weight. Accidents involving big rig semi-trucks frequently result in severe injuries. Truck accidents may have many contributing factors including truck driver fatigue, load and balance issues, and improperly maintained trucks. Truck accident victims can benefit by working with a skilled attorney who understands the applicable safety regulations and the steps that can be taken to hold truck drivers and their employers responsible for their negligence.
  • Construction accidents - Workers on construction sites may be injured in a variety of situations, including falls from heights, scaffolding collapses, faulty machinery incidents, electrocutions due to exposed wiring or malfunctioning equipment, and falling objects. Construction workers who suffer injuries in these incidents may be able to file workers' compensation claims or take legal action to address negligence by third parties such as subcontractors or property owners.
  • Dangerous and defective products - When a product is sold with design flaws or manufacturing defects that cause harm to users, or when consumers are not provided with warning or instructions about the safe use of products, injuries can occur. People who have been injured by defective products can pursue product liability claims against manufacturers and receive compensation for their damages.
  • Medical malpractice - When healthcare professionals provide substandard care that results in patient harm, they may be held responsible for their negligence through medical malpractice lawsuits. These cases may involve issues such as misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, failure to diagnose, surgical errors, anesthesia errors, medication errors, or other situations where doctors, nurses, or other providers deviate from the accepted standards of care. We can help victims of medical negligence recover compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages and earning capacity.
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect - Elders residing in nursing homes may experience physical abuse, sexual abuse, neglect, inadequate hygiene, lack of medical treatment, malnutrition, dehydration, or other forms of harm resulting from the negligence of a facility or its staff. We work to ensure that families can address these issues and hold a nursing home responsible for failing to protect patients' health, safety, and well-being.
  • Wrongful death - When someone dies as a direct result of another person's negligent actions, the victim's loved ones may seek to hold the person responsible. In wrongful death lawsuits, family members may be compensated for the financial impact of a person's death and the grief, sorrow, and emotional trauma they have experienced.
