What to Expect When You Call Our Prospect Heights Injury Attorneys
The commitment David Resnick & Associates has to its clients is evident from the first meeting. We are willing to come to visit you in your home or hospital room if your injuries limit your mobility and you are unable to visit our office.
We take pride in getting to know you during your initial consultation. We will help you evaluate your legal options and understand whether a personal injury lawsuit is in order. We are committed to ensuring that our clients make informed decisions.
As soon as you hire us, we will commence an independent investigation of your accident scene and gather evidence to support your claim. We want to know everything about how this injury has affected your life so we can fight to help you reclaim the life you had before your accident.
You may be contacted by an insurance company for the negligent party soon after your accident, but you must be very careful with what you say to any adjuster. Some representatives will be quick to offer you a lump sum settlement to resolve your case, but you need to know that the offer is probably far less than the fair value of the claim.
David Resnick & Associates will negotiate on your behalf for a full settlement that covers all your expenses and losses associated with the accident. If the insurance company refuses to agree to a fair settlement, we will be prepared to try your case in court.
We will maintain constant communication so that you stay up to date on the status of your case and what is happening with it.

Slip & Fall Attorneys Serving Prospect Heights
There are a number of other popular public establishments in Prospect Heights near the Barclays Center. Slip and fall accidents are common in public places, and property owners may be responsible for injuries that are caused by a failure to repair or warn of dangerous conditions.
Slip and fall accidents are a good example of why victims should consult a lawyer right away. A property owner or manager may repair a hazardous condition quickly after a serious accident. It is important to document the dangerous condition before it is repaired.
Our attorneys will move quickly to preserve evidence showing how your injury occurred. In many slip and fall cases, the insurance companies for the negligent parties will argue that you were at fault for your accident and use that justification to deny your injury claim.
A skilled slip and fall attorney will be able to help you prove that another party was negligent and ensure they are held fully accountable so that you can receive all the compensation.
