hiring a personal injury lawyer

If you have been hurt in an accident in Chicago or Illinois through no fault of your own, one of your first calls should be to an attorney who handles personal injury cases.

For instance, at Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard P.C., we provide free initial consultations. You can schedule one by simply calling us or contacting us online.

We use these consultations to learn more about the facts of your case and to help you understand your legal options. If we take on your case, we can then provide legal assistance that includes:

  • Making sure your claim is filed on time.
  • Protecting your rights when dealing with insurance companies.
  • Fighting to seek the compensation you deserve.

With our legal skill, experience and resources, we believe we can play a major role in helping you and your family to recover from an accident and move on with your lives.

Consider the following:


Pursuing a personal injury claim brings with it many legal challenges. You need to:

  • Understand the evidence required for your specific claim and what you will need to prove in order to recover compensation.
  • Know who to take legal against in the form of a lawsuit and when, where and how to file the lawsuit.
  • Negotiate smartly and strategically with the insurance company or convince a jury of how badly you were harmed and your need for compensation.
  • Comply with all court rules and complete all paperwork correctly.

Most injury cases begin with settlement negotiations with the at-fault party’s insurance company. If no settlement is reached, the case goes to trial. At each stage, it helps to have someone with experience on your side.

At Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard P.C., we have years of experience with presenting injury claims to insurance companies and arguing cases before juries. We know what makes a case a strong one and how to build on those strengths.
