Personal Injury Law in Illinois
Champaign firm helping victims recover for their losses
James D. Cottrell Law Office, P.C. successfully helps injured clients recover just compensation for losses resulting from auto accidents, medical malpractice, unsafe products, dangerous drugs, slips and falls and unsafe work conditions. I also represent people with workers compensation and Social Security disability claims.
Seeking just compensation for injuries
Personal injury claims are filed by victims who suffer physical or psychological injury directly due to another person’s negligence. I employ a practical and professional approach to ensure our clients obtain full and fair recovery for their injuries, including damages for their past and future medical bills, lost income, emotional distress, and pain and suffering. I use my extensive civil litigation experience, my knowledge about insurance company tactics and my skills at settlement negotiation to obtain the best possible recovery for my clients.
Personalized legal guidance
Your welfare is my priority. I provide personalized legal guidance at every step of your case and fully inform you about the legal strategy and recovery options available.
I consult with knowledgeable and respected experts to assist with case preparation. With the support of physicians, trauma doctors, pharmacists, chiropractors, forensics engineers, mechanics and accident reconstruction analysts, I can negotiate the best possible settlements. At trial, these experts are available to deliver clear, professional testimony.
Protecting your claim
Illinois law sets limits on the amount of time you have to file a personal injury claim. Consult an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible so your claim is filed within crucial statutory deadlines. By investigating your claim immediately, I help ensure that valuable evidence remains available and witnesses’ memories remain fresh.
