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.

Dog Bites Need a Dog Court

Grazian & Volpe has represented the victims of dog bites in Chicago and surrounding suburbs for over 25 years. We have found that injuries can be particularly traumatic and disfiguring to the young and often the result of poor control by the pet owner.

As lovers of animals and the advocates of the victims of animal attacks, we are always searching for ways in which the interests of the pet owners and the safety of potential dog bite victims can be balanced and protected.

This month marks the first anniversary of “pet court” which convenes Friday mornings as part of the municipal court system in San Antonio, Texas. This new and innovative court focuses on enforcement of the city’s animal control laws, including failure to register or vaccinate pets and allowing pets to roam unleashed. Many cases involve dog bite victims and pets that are accused of being a public nuisance.

There are now 78.2 million dogs in the United States, a goodly portion of which are free roaming strays. The judge in San Antonio has focused less on generating revenue for the city and more on the education of pet owners and the welfare of the animals, themselves. The enforcement of control laws and education of the pet owning public are important tools in the prevention of animal attacks and health issues due to more pet maintenance or improper handling of pet waste.

Grazian and Volpe applaud the court in San Antonio for its enlightened and altruistic tenor and hope that existing and future “Pet Courts” adopt the same progressive attitude.
