About Carlson Bier

Personal Injury Lawyers in Newton Illinois

At Carlson Bier, we bring to the table extensive experience in Personal Injury law within the Illinois jurisdiction. Our commitment to championing the rights of individuals who have suffered harm due complications arising from negligence is unwavering. Indeed, as seasoned attorneys versed in personal injury litigation, we understand the specific barriers and difficulties our clients face under such circumstances.

Noteworthy is that a personal injury may result from various sources including auto accidents, workplace mishaps, faulty products among others. Unfortunately, dealing with these injuries not only affects your health but also takes an emotional toll on you and your loved ones. It’s this understanding that informs our approach towards handling each case – every client’s predicament is unique and requires a personalized legal strategy.

Our primary goal at Carlson Bier is to ensure that you comprehend what classifies as a personal injury claim:

•Severe body harm incurred because of direct involvement or exposure to an incident.

•The aforementioned incident resulted primarily from someone else’s uncalled for carelessness or neglect.

•The victim has undergone substantial suffering—physically, emotionally, materially—or anticipates future losses like income loss due to sustained permanent damage.

In light of the above points under Illinois jurisdiction; once all conditions align fittingly to affirm it’s indeed a personal injury situation caused by another party’s disregard—the injured party could be right in their pursuit for compensation.

It’s crucial that victims understand how pursuing such claims often involve intricate processes. For instance,

•Prompt reporting: The elapse between when one incurs physical harm and when they seek medical attention matters considerably – ideally should be instantaneously later without significant delays.

•Documentation remains cardinal bearing undeniable evidence – photographs taken on site immediately after occurrence depict actual intolerable conditions

(*Note: Actions like exchange of cursory glances over accident site immediately doesn’t serve justice during proceedings*)

At Carlson Bier we recognize documentation sustains solid grounds in lawsuits against defaulters; reason being it:

•Validates and attributes the injuries to the precise incident instead of conjuring lame thoughts that attempt to deny occurrence of accident altogether.

•It serves as indisputable proof in court, convincing even further your entitlement for a fair compensation.

Furthermore, understanding the statute of limitations in Illinois law is pivotal—typically two years from date when injury escalates but cases vary depending on circumstantial factors such as delay ‘discovery rule’, tolling due to disability or fraudulent concealment. With this brief window period, our role involves promptly filing your lawsuit within stipulated timelines.

Moreover, we make it our business to know and challenge insurance companies’ tactics.Insurance companies play along nicely while banking on alleged beneficiaries’ unfamiliarity with rules governing personal injury issues – often offering way less than deserved dues. But Carlson Bier’s competent lawyers will only settle for what exactly favours client’s interest appropriately.

Comprehending varying scales in different forms of personal injuries is similarly important for clients who consult us at Carlson Bier;

•Certain claims may demand calculation based on actual costs incurred like medical bills or lost earnings

•Others could involve subjective deciding aspects founded upon level of pain, suffering alongside other abstract elements which don’t acquire direct pricing easily.

Our wealth in wide-ranging expertise becomes handy during negotiation processes ensuring each concern gets satisfactorily addressed correspondingly lending you better chances of winning desirable compensation package .We never stop fighting until justice streams down!

Finally yet importantly, should a case culminate towards trial (which surprisingly less do –most end up getting settled out-of-court mutually), be reassured it’s not by any chance indication of weak point or looming loss.No!Quite contrary-it only re-emphasises unyielding fight we’ve taken embracing all challenges head-on dedicated to seeking appropriate redress regardless unusual elevations proceedings might take under extreme conditions.Thanks to our team’s unwearied determination and impressive court-room skills bringing much-needed peace for our clients amidst otherwise chaotic moments.

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.
