About Carlson Bier

Personal Injury Lawyers in East Cape Girardeau Illinois

At Carlson Bier, we pride ourselves on being Illinois’ high-caliber personal injury attorneys. We have dedicated our professional lives to protecting the rights of victims and their families, taking a stand against injustices that arise as a result of others’ negligence or misconduct.

Personal injury law is an expansive field, encompassing several types of incidents such as automobile accidents, workplace injuries, medical malpractice cases, product liability and more. Understanding these areas requires expert knowledge which we are more than equipped to provide. Our wealth of experience in handling each unique case ensures you get fitting claim settlements for your suffering and losses.

• Automobile Accidents: Traffic collisions disrupt lives every day causing physical injuries and emotional trauma. We endeavor to fight for just compensation to bring at least some solace during this difficult time.

• Workplace Injuries: Few things can leave a person feeling as vulnerable as when they’re injured at work due to unsafe conditions. At Carlson Bier, we’re committed to ensuring that injured workers receive proper compensation from employers who’ve shirked responsibility.

• Medical Malpractice Cases: Trusting your health or life in the hands of medical professionals does not mean disregarding errors; doctors must be held accountable too. We aggressively pursue justice for victims of botched surgeries and negligent care by uncloaking hidden truths.

• Product Liability: Consumers deserve assurance that purchased products will pose no harm under intended use. When manufacturers fail this trust by producing unsafe goods leading to injury or death, we step in to advocate for affected parties.

Being well-versed with Illinois laws governing personal injury claims also enables us to effectively counter any unjust defenses mounted by insurance companies trying their best not only to evade but belittle rightful claims by hurt victims.

The upset following an unexpected accident intensifies even further the less aware one is about legal recourse available amidst damages suffered – loss of income due incapacitation or exorbitant hospital bills dominating worrisome thoughts. Here at Carlson Bier, we believe in turning such turbulence into triumph by assisting you with the much-needed guidance and representation to navigate through complex legal procedures.

Moreover, awareness of one’s rights can prove pivotal in ensuring fair compensation from personal injury claims. As such, among various things:

• You’ve a right to refuse signing anything: Insurers often resort to tactics leading victims to accidentally surrender their rights – hence no statement or document should be signed without an attorney providing counsel.

• You’re entitled to benefits regardless of fault: Whether partially or fully responsible for the accident doesn’t take away your eligibility for benefits like medical payment coverage or uninsured motorist coverage.

• Time limits apply on filing lawsuits: Pay heed to Illinois’ statute of limitations indicating time frames within which claims must be filed post-accidents.

Our purpose isn’t merely about getting recompense; it’s fundamentally about care shown towards afflicted clients while reassuring them that every legal recourse is being pursued relentlessly on their behalf amidst tough times.

Injury cases handled by us aren’t just files occupying cabinet space. They’re serious matters concerning real people facing real problems – and they deserve attention beyond routine protocol. The necessary diligence put forth producing strategic approaches tailored specifically around unique circumstances works as our cornerstone striving tirelessly towards serving justice.

We understand deprivation unfairly caused due someone else’s negligence shouldn’t jeopardize your future well-being. Being cognizant of what transpired coupled with our process transparency privileging unfiltered access to case progress substantiates not only our staunch belief in open communication but reflects respect held deeply for clientele who entrust us during these hard-hitting periods deserving only top-tier legal assistance.

Notable Illinois Appellate Wins

Moruzzi v. CCC Servs., Inc., 2020 IL App (2d) 190411, 171 N.E.3d 61
Background: Insured motorist filed action against insurer for declaratory judgment seeking construction of automobile insurance policy issued to insured and that was in effect when insured was injured by an underinsured driver. The Circuit Court, DuPage County, Bonnie M. Wheaton, J., granted the insurer's motions for summary judgment. Insured appealed.Holdings: The Appellate Court, Zenoff, J., held that:1 medical payments reduction clause in automobile insurance policy conflicted with underinsured motorist provisions so as to render reduction clause ambiguous, and thus medical payment benefits were deductible from insured's damages;2 law firm representing insured did not create common fund or common funds when it reached settlement with underinsured motorist, and thus law firm was not entitled to recover fees under common-fund doctrine; and3 collateral estoppel did not bar automobile insurers from litigating whether common-fund doctrine applied in insured motorist's declaratory judgment action.Affirmed in part and reversed in part.
Maier v. CC Servs., Inc., 2019 IL App (3d) 170640, 132 N.E.3d 795
Background: After insured, who was injured in automobile collision with another driver, recovered full liability limits of driver's policy, she filed amended complaint for declaratory judgment against her own automobile insurer, alleging that insurer breached contractual duty to pay for insured's damages in accordance with uninsured/underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage in insured's policy and that insurer acted in bad faith in denying insured such coverage. The Circuit Court, La Salle County, Troy D. Holland, J., granted the insurer's motion to dismiss claims as time-barred. Insured appealed.The Appellate Court ruled that neither the insurer nor the insured could add amended policy provisions to the court record. It was decided that the policy's requirement for a written arbitration demand applied to both uninsured and underinsured motorist claims. The court found that a letter from the insured's attorney to the insurer wasn't a valid arbitration demand nor a proof of loss to toll the statute of limitations. Finally, the insurer was permitted to use the defense based on the two-year statute of limitations period. The court's decision was affirmed.
Econ. Premier Assurance Co. v. Country Mut. Ins. Co., 2021 IL App (1st) 192364-U
Holding: The circuit court's order that granted defendant's motion for summary judgment and denied plaintiff's motion for partial summary judgment was proper where defendant had no duty to indemnify its insured with respect to the underlying complaint and therefore plaintiff was not entitled to recover against defendant on its subrogation or unjust enrichment claims; affirmed.
Country Preferred Ins. Co. v. Westerheide, 2023 IL App (5th) 220343-U
Holding: The court affirmed judgment of the circuit court granting summary judgment in favor of the plaintiff where the defendant failed to make a written demand for arbitration within two years from the date of the accident as required by the underinsured provisions of the defendant's automotive insurance policy.
Country Mut. Ins. Co. v. Olsak, 2022 IL App (1st) 200695, 216 N.E.3d 291
In a complex legal case, an insurer sought to avoid defending or indemnifying a hockey player under a policy issued to the player's stepfather after the player was sued for assaulting his coach. The initial Circuit Court ruling favored the insurer, but the Appellate Court reversed this decision, leading to a protracted legal battle. Ultimately, the Appellate Court determined the insurer was liable only up to the $3 million policy limit and found the insurer's four-year delay in seeking a declaratory judgment to be reasonable. This case highlights important aspects of insurance litigation and policy limit liabilities.
Country Mut. Ins. Co. v. Durkin Elec. Co., Inc., 2022 IL App (1st) 210293-U, appeal denied, 199 N.E.3d 1187 (Ill. 2022)
Holding: The circuit court's order that denied plaintiff's motion for partial summary judgment and found that defendant was an additional insured under the policy was proper. The circuit court's order that denied defendant's motion for summary judgment and found that plaintiff did not have a duty to defend or indemnify defendant under the policy was proper; affirmed.
Country Preferred Ins. Co. v. Groen, 2017 IL App (4th) 160028, 69 N.E.3d 911
Background: Uninsured motorist (UM) carrier brought action against insured for declaratory judgment that it owed no benefits since workers' compensation received by insured exceeded policy limits. The Circuit Court, Sangamon County, Chris Perrin, J., entered summary judgment in favor of the carrier. Insured appealed.Holdings: The Appellate Court, Harris, J., held that:1 employer's medical payments entitled carrier to setoff, and2 setoff clauses were enforceable.Affirmed.
Country Mut. Ins. Co. v. Frobish, 2021 IL App (3d) 190473-U
Holding: Allegations in the underlying complaint that a township employee caused property damage by excavating and digging out a ditch failed to impose a duty to defend under township employee's individual farm insurance policy.
Country Mut. Ins. Co. v. Jones, 2018 IL App (1st) 173154-U
Holding: The judgment of the circuit court of Cook County is affirmed; plaintiff is entitled to summary judgment on its claim for a declaratory judgment that it has no duty to defend or indemnify its insured against the underlying complaint because the loss claimed in the underlying complaint is subject to an exclusion. The court held that it would also enter judgment for plaintiff because the underlying complaint does not allege an “occurrence” causing bodily injury within the meaning of the policy.
Country Mut. Ins. Co. v. Schmitt, 2021 IL App (5th) 190173-U
Holding: The appellate court reversed and remanded the judgment of the circuit court where plaintiff had no duty to defend its insured and thus was not stopped from raising policy defenses to coverage for the underlying tort action contained in the amended declaratory action.
Country Mut. Ins. Co. v. Livorsi Marine, Inc., 222 Ill. 2d 303, 856 N.E.2d 338 (2006) (the late Keith Carlson)
Liability insurer brought action against insureds for a declaratory judgment based on failure to provide timely notice of lawsuits against them. The Circuit Court, Cook County, Stephen A. Schiller, J., entered judgment for the insurer. Insureds appealed. The Appellate Court, Wolfson, J., 358 Ill.App.3d 880, 295 Ill.Dec. 665, 833 N.E.2d 871, affirmed. Leave to appeal was granted.Holdings: The Supreme Court, Garman, J., held that:1 if the insurer did not receive reasonable notice of an occurrence or a lawsuit, the policyholder may not recover under the policy, regardless of whether the lack of reasonable notice prejudiced the insurer, overruling Rice v. AAA Aerostar, Inc., 294 Ill.App.3d 801, 229 Ill.Dec. 20, 690 N.E.2d 1067, and Cincinnati Insurance Co. v. Baur's Opera House, Inc., 296 Ill.App.3d 1011, 230 Ill.Dec. 624, 694 N.E.2d 593, and2 insured did not need to prove that it was prejudiced by delayed notice of lawsuits.Affirmed.
