About Carlson Bier

Personal Injury Lawyers in Marseilles Illinois

Welcome to Carlson Bier, a renowned personal injury attorney group prepared to offer our dedicated legal services across the Illinois region. Boasting extensive experience in handling complex cases and achieving favorable results for our clients, we ground ourselves in discipline, compassion, rigor, and resilience as we pursue justice for victims of negligence and accidents.

Experts define personal injuries as wrongful harm caused due to someone else’s negligence – be it in the form of car accidents, workplace incidents, slip-and-falls or product liabilities; such injuries can significantly impact an individual’s life both physically and emotionally. It is during these challenging times that Carlson Bier emerges as your steadfast partner. As skilled personal injury lawyers, our mission transcends beyond merely winning lawsuits: We strive to help you comprehend the full breadth of your rights under Illinois law while assuring utmost discretion and empathy throughout your journey.

Balancing emotional vulnerability with a need for just compensation demands practical knowledge about one’s rights and options following an accident. Here are key points to understand:

– Victims typically have two years from the date of their injury to file a claim.

– The nature or severity of their injury determines potential financial compensation.

– Compensation could include medical bills reimbursement, loss of income coverage if work was missed due to the related injury, plus pain and suffering damages.

Also noteworthy is that comparative negligence laws apply in Illinois; should partial fault lie with the victim involved in an accident – whether 1% or 50% – certain reductions pertaining to damage awards might occur. Nonetheless worry not as litigation often remains addressed out-of-court via negotiations with at-fault party’s insurers: statistics show 95% cases get settled before they reach trial.

When navigating these processes alone becomes overwhelming—an all too common scenario—Carlson Bier offers its invaluable expertise honed over plentiful successful client advocacies. Our commitment disables any fee requirement unless we win your case – thus aligning our goals strictly towards obtaining maximum possible compensation for your disheartening experience in form of substantial resolution.

Leveraging our comprehensive knowledge on Illinois law and personal injury claims, we chart a personalised strategic course to every lawsuit; meticulously unraveling facts while gathering compelling evidence for bolstering clients’ cases becomes high-priority. Aside from this extensive groundwork, negotiations with insurance companies fall within our expertise ambit as well – ensuring that any proposed settlements align accurately with the gravity of injuries sustained.

Fairness and justice play cardinal roles throughout this exhausting journey; hence having Carlson Bier at your side empowers you with an unyielding champion capable of enforcing fair treatment by insurers or negligent parties alike. Moreover, we deconstruct convoluted legal terminology into comprehensible language allowing easier assimilation. This guarantees that you remain aware regarding all crucial aspects around case developments without suffering from unnecessary mystification of complex jargon.

Trusting us never leaves room for suppressed voices: instead it breeds sustainable support bases underpinned by deeply rooted compassion and understanding for victims involved in life-changing accidents. Guided by quality-driven services outlined above, the experience remains dedicated towards implementing full legal rights married with professional responsibility – where success stays judged on personalized interactions mixed generously with meaningful results.

A quick verdict won’t suffice anyone but short-term objectives seldom rank high on our agenda; instead steadfast perseverance till last miles takes precedence over blinding rush – majorly contributing towards securing rightful dues each victim deserves under law’s purview. And while overcoming aftermaths stays inherently tough, leaning upon our indefatigable ethos converts it into poignant reality rather than elusive mirage.

Empower yourself today through enforcement of entitled rights coupled tightly with uncompromised commitment towards equity winning back critical control over affected lives post-accidents; no dents should overshadow bright futures possibly awaiting beyond din surrounding mishaps-induced turbulence inevitably striking occasionally out of blue skies.

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.
