About Carlson Bier

Personal Injury Lawyers in Pleasant Hill Illinois

At Carlson Bier, we understand the complexities of personal injury law. Our firm is based in Illinois and we specialize in representing clients who have been affected by personal injury due to someone else’s negligence or intentional harm. We firmly believe that victims should be fully compensated for their physical, emotional, and financial hardship. There are various types of personal injuries such as automobile accidents, slip and fall incidents, medical malpractices, defective products mishaps.

• Personal injuries often involve more than just bodily harm; they can include psychological trauma too.

• Victims are entitled to compensation covering several areas like medical expenses (both present & future), lost wages due to inability to work during recovering period, pain and suffering endured physically & mentally.

• The statute of limitations in Illinois allows injured parties two years from the date of an accident to file a lawsuit.

Even minor accidents can lead to complex claims involving multiple parties and large insurance companies that demand vast legal knowledge beyond ordinary persons understanding. That’s where our expertise comes into play. Here at Carlson Bier, it’s our job and responsibility to safeguard your rights during these difficult times.

Understandably navigating through the laws might feel overwhelming especially when you are healing from the shock or effects of an injury incident. You might question “What if I am partly accountable for the incident?” We want you to know that even if this is true there isn’t any need for panic because Illinois uses what is known as ‘Comparative Negligence Law’ which means a victim can still receive damages provided they were less than 50% at fault.

A few salient points about comparative negligence law;

• It subtracts your percentage at fault from 100% so you’d only be liable for your portion.

• Even as a partially liable party you could receive settlement but not punitive damages.

Legal jargon can sometimes stand between justice being served properly due its confusing nature; hence it’s crucially important to have us as your representative. We professionally analyze, collect necessary evidence, negotiate with the insurance companies and handle all urgent tasks such as filing within statute of limitations so that you can focus on recovering.

Talking about recoveries, it’s important for you to know when a settlement is fair. A lot of people get unrealistic expectations about compensation due to myths spread around them; hence resulting in longer, futile negotiations or even lawsuits glorying unscrupulous lawyers billing by hour rather than justice being served effectively and promptly. We firmly believe it’s not about how long we fight but how intelligently and ethically.

At our firm, Carlson Bier:

• Our attorney fees are structured on contingency basis i.e., we only get paid if you receive compensation.

• Be assured that no stone is left unturned before finalizing any agreements with opposing parties.

• Transparency rates highest in importance when working with us because knowledge is power.

With years of experience in dealing cases like yours coupled with an unwavering commitment towards promoting justice for personal injury victims, Carlson Bier assures peace of mind throughout this legal battle. By choosing us, you’re placing trust in reliability and dedication- two cornerstones forming basis of our reputable law practice here at Illinois.

It’s important to remember that every situation is unique & complex in its own way which means results can never be guaranteed anywhere despite their proximity or association success stories. What we assure though is a dedicated team tirelessly working around state laws ensuring your claim gets the maximum attention deserved under these circumstances further increasing chances towards positive outcomes.

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.
