Get Help with Medical Bills and Obtain Fair Compensation
If you or a loved one was hurt because of someone else’s negligence, Illinois law allows you to pursue damages for pain and suffering, lost wages, disfigurement and loss of a normal life, in addition to your medical expenses. With the help of an experienced lawyer, you can obtain compensation and get your medical expenses paid for through a personal injury or wrongful death claim.
At the Law Offices of Damon La Porte, I help injured people and their families seek justice and proper compensation through the law. I, attorney Damon La Porte, represent clients in injury/accident cases involving:
- Car and truck accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Motorcycle accidents and bicycle accidents
- Construction injuries and machine injuries
- Dog bites and animal attacks
- Brain injury
- Pharmaceutical injuries
- Workers’ compensation
- Slip-and-fall injury and premises liability
- Professional negligence
- Catastrophic injury
Do Not Try to Negotiate with an Insurance Company
If you have been injured, trying to negotiate with (or even talk to) an insurance company on your own is a mistake. Insurance company representatives are experts at minimizing claims, denying claims and underpaying injured people who they know are entitled to much more. If given the chance, the insurance company will take advantage of you. Instead of talking to them, talk to me.
If your attorney can get involved early on, he or she can position the case appropriately before you are talked into providing information without advisement. In the end, proper and timely legal intervention will enable you to obtain maximum compensation.
I have worked with insurance companies in the past on both sides of liability matters, so I know how they think and operate. I can advise you regarding the best way to proceed if you have a case.
