Do personal injury cases go to trial? If you are unable to reach a settlement agreement with the at fault party, your personal injury case may go to trial. Personal injury cases usually involve either a formal lawsuit or an informal settlement. In the former, the plaintiff files a lawsuit against the other party for compensation.
If you are unsure about when to hire a personal injury lawyer, hire one as soon as possible after you have been injured in an accident caused by someone else's negligence or wrongdoing. A personal injury lawyer can assist you in seeking compensation for your injuries and can also help protect your best interests against insurance companies who may try to avoid paying fair compensation for your injuries and damages.
“What does a personal injury lawyer do?” is a question you may ask yourself when you’re wondering whether seeking legal representation is in your best interests. From gathering evidence and valuing your claim to creating a suitable legal strategy for pursuing maximum compensation and representing you in court, a personal injury lawyer’s services help get the best possible outcome for your claim.
If you were injured in a trucking accident in Chicago, Berwyn, Oak Lawn, Cicero, or a nearby community, call the injury attorneys at Lloyd Miller Law for a free consultation.

Bicycle Recall: Trek 2013 Madone

The lawyers at Grazian and Volpe are ever vigilant for any information that can help cyclers stay safe and avoid injury.
We came across a new brief stating that approximately 6,800 Trek model Madone bikes manufactured as 2013 models have been recalled by Trek Bicycles of Waterloo, Wisconsin.

The reason is that the front brake of this bicycle may fail causing a bicycle crash hazard. Trek has received five reports of loose front brake attachment bolts but, fortunately, no injuries to date.

Consumers should stop using the bikes immediately and take the bikes to a Trek dealer for a free front brake system replacement.

These are expensive bikes ranging between $3400 and $15,000 and carrying the model numbers 5.2, 5.9, 6.2, 6.5, 7.7 or 7.9 and serial numbers starting at WTU and ending with G or H.

We applaud Trek for recalling these bikes before any injuries occurred. Grazian and Volpe have noted an uptick in bicycle recalls by various manufacturers. We feel this is probably due to the surge in cycling as a sport and commuter alternative and the need for manufacturers to supply more inventory to dealers.

Bicycle maintenance and repair are crucial in helping cyclers contribute to a safer cycling environment and avoid bicycle accidents and injuries.

Trek cyclers can contact Trek at 800-373-4594 or online at www.trekbikes.com for more information.
