About Carlson Bier

Personal Injury Lawyers in La Harpe Illinois

Welcome to Carlson Bier, your trusted partner in navigating the complex world of personal injury law. We are a dedicated group of legal professionals known throughout Illinois for our unwavering commitment to protecting and advocating for victims impacted by negligent or intentional acts that lead to physical harm. At Carlson Bier, we understand how life-altering an accident can be, not just physically but mentally and financially too.

Personal injury cases arise from a diverse range of incidents including car accidents, slip and fall occurrences, medical negligence, dog bites, workplace accidents and more. When these unfortunate events happen due to the lackadaisical attitude or recklessness of others, victims deserve compensation for their loss and suffering – this is where we come in.

Here’s what sets us apart:

• Experienced team: Our skilled attorneys have accrued years of experience dealing with delicate issues arising from personal injuries.

• Personalized approach: We treat each case as unique because we believe every individual’s circumstances warrant detailed scrutiny.

• Victorious track-record: Our success rate reflects our dedication towards ensuring justice is served fairly.

• Comprehensive consultation: Understanding your rights can sometimes be daunting; hence we ensure that all our clients are well informed about various aspects of personal injury law.

The aftermath of a personal injury incident involves much more than recovering from physical pain — medical bills can quickly pile up; wage losses further inflict financial distress while emotional trauma mitigates everyday life enjoyment ability. This is why it’s crucial to enlist competent representation like ours at Carlson Bier in pursuit of rightful compensation owed to you.

In Illinois state specific laws apply when making claims relating to personal injuries:

– First off there’s ‘Comparative Negligence Rule’ which determines damages based on percentage fault assigned to each party involved.

– The ‘Statute Of Limitations’ indicates that lawsuits must be filed within two years after the accident – though certain exceptions may apply depending upon situational specifics.

– In terms of liability in dog bite cases or other animal-related injuries, Illinois follows the ‘Strict Liability Rule’ which means pet owners can be held responsible even without proof of their pets having aggressive tendencies.

Moreover, various damage aspects may be covered by compensation awards including medical expenses (past and future), income loss, property damage, pain and suffering including psychological distress as well as punitive damages meant to punish wrongdoers for their negligent actions.

We at Carlson Bier advocate diligently to ensure claimants receive maximum compensation to help alleviate the many burdens that injury incidences impose on them. Our attorneys work tirelessly in viewing all evidence, consulting with medical professionals and accident reconstruction specialists to establish strong case proceedings compelling enough to implement rightful justice.

Working with us promises empathy in understanding your circumstances coupled with unmatched dedication towards ensuring your claim runs its course smoothly. We strive not only for successful legal outcomes but also peace of mind for our clients – we believe this balance is essential… something often unseen but deeply felt impacting possibilities towards recovery greatly.

So if you or a loved one has unfortunately fallen victim to an incident sparking personal injury due to someone else’s negligence; remember your rights! Remember justice is not just about punishment but also about finding closure and fairness in already challenging circumstances. Get informed – be empowered!

Don’t let uncertainty cloud decision-making or delay any longer than necessary – time can often affect claim potential adversely.

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.
