About Carlson Bier

Personal Injury Lawyers in Elizabeth Illinois

In the unpredictable maze of life, unforeseen events may precipitate misfortunes that unfortunately result in personal injuries. In such situations, you require not just legal representation but a dependable advocacy committed to securing justice and fair compensation for your sufferings. Welcome to Carlson Bier – your trusted Personal Injury Attorney group based in Illinois. We are steadfastly dedicated to providing principled, aggressive, and compassionate legal services tailored to your unique circumstances.

Personal injury law pertains to instances where an individual suffers harm due to someone else’s negligence or deliberate wrongdoing. These detriments range from physical injuries like breaks or burns through emotional distress or loss of companionship, and extend right up until substantial financial duress in the form of lost earnings, towering medical bills and other related expenses.

Here at Carlson Bier, our extensive experience covers various facets within the broad spectrum of personal injury cases:

• Motor Vehicle Accidents: If another driver’s negligence has resulted in a mishap causing you harm we work tirelessly towards making sure you secure deserved reparations.

• Medical Malpractice: When healthcare professionals deviate from established norms resulting in patient harm we stand by you ensuring accountability is held.

• Slip-and-Fall Incidents: Do not let negligent property owners shirk their responsibility for failing to maintain safe premises – trust us while we relentlessly work on your case.

• Product Liability Claims: When defective products cause injuries, our team will advocate for your rights against erring corporations.

Understanding every corner intricately interwoven into the fabric of personal injury law empowers clients to better apprehend their predicament. This knowledge buffer supplemented with staunch legal assistance enables them not merely survive, but actively navigate their way out of trying times thereby reaffirming commitment towards enabling balanced scales of justice.

Our firm believes deeply in open communication; henceforth charting unambiguous strategies designed around each client’s specific need forms hallmark of our practice ethos. Battles fought in courtrooms should never be about winning at any cost – they must invariably focus at illuminating truth rewarding those wronged with justice.

Remember it is essential to act promptly if you’ve been injured due to someone else’s negligence. The law provides a finite time frame known as the “statute of limitations” within which claims can be filed. In Illinois, this generally is two years for personal injury cases from the date when injury occurred. However, some exceptions may apply depending on specifics involved hence legal advice tailored to your situation remains invaluable.

We at Carlson Bier are proud of our ability to deliver high-quality legal services while maintaining personalized attention that clients deserve – big or small. Our attorneys combine noteworthy experience, significant skills, and dedicated passion into an unwaverable force offering professional confidence while dealing with opposing counsel or handling negotiations with trickily worded insurers determinedly denying liability.

Being aligned with the right juridical support during these trying times reduces stress and bolsters positive outcomes. Aligning yourself with a reputable attorney ensures absolute optimization of leverages available under intricately woven subplots navigated by the daunting labyrinth constituting personal injury laws within Illinois’ dynamic litigation landscapes

For us at Carlson Bier, victories aren’t mere numbers added onto scoreboards – every case won stands symbolic towards mending lives unfairly dismantled by unfortunate events precipitated outside contingencies established by actionable safeplays contained within legally established spheres regarding care causing harm – because we believe everybody deserves fair compensation healing invisible scars etched deep down by tides running against pedestrian expectations about safety norms.

Take advantage of our free initial consultation: have us evaluate your personal injury claim and understand how much your case could potentially be worth. This multi-faceted exploration will grant insight concerning applicatory regulations and probable roadmap guiding prospective reparations potentially reconciling past sufferings injected through life-altering happenstances directed by another’s oversight.

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.
