About Carlson Bier

Personal Injury Lawyers in Sheffield Illinois

Welcome to Carlson Bier, your trusted partners in the complex realm of Personal Injury Law. As an Illinois-based law firm, we possess profound knowledge and expertise about the legal intricacies you may face when navigating through a personal injury case. Our purpose is to simplify these complexities for you while ensuring that justice is served with proficiency.

Let’s take some time to understand what Personal Injury Law entails. This branch of law offers legal remedies primarily sought by victims who have been injured due to an action or negligence of another party. The scope of personal injury cases is wide-ranging from auto accidents, workplace injuries, medical malpractice, product defects, wrongful death to slip and fall incidents among others.

• Liability Determination: One key aspect of any personal injury claim rests upon establishing fault or liability. Several factors are taken into consideration such as carelessness, negligence or wilful intent that led to the injury.

• Damage Assessment: This includes quantifying suffering in financial terms like lost wages, property damage and emotional distress.

• Insurance Company Negotiations: Having a personalized approach towards dealing with insurance adjusters can help substantially maximize settlements.

At Carlson Bier, our experienced team works relentlessly towards equipping our clients with essential insight within various nuances concerning Personal Injury Law:

• Statute of Limitations: In Illinois state law mandates specific deadlines for filing different types of personal injury claims.

• Comparative Fault Rules: Should there be shared fault involved in an accident; we inform how compensation stands likely affected in terms of percentage responsibility

• Out-of-Court Settlement VS Trial Verdicts: We transparently discuss strong points and drawbacks associated within both paths thereby providing informed options suiting individual case scenarios

The attorneys at Carlson Bier have represented individuals across all walks of life securing fair compensation for their physical suffering and mental anguish alongside other losses related directly or indirectly because of their injuries. Our guiding principle in representing each client lies secured on three pillars:

1) Client Education: Before presenting legal strategies, we make it a point to explain all relevant aspects in plain English.

2) Extensive Research: Each case is meticulously examined and researched to ensure no stone is left unturned.

3) Best Legal Counsel: We process every little detail with unparalleled professionalism.

We believe in playing an instrumental role not just during the peak of litigation but also ensuring you recover smoothly post-trial or settlement period. Our focused support encompasses help in dealing with medical providers, negotiating with health insurers and rendering much-needed guidance through bureaucracy that follows most personal injury cases.

With our committed efforts combined with formidable acumen, Carlson Bier endeavors to achieve optimal outcomes for our clients ensuring justice prevails beyond courtroom walls making us a reliable partner within their path towards reclaiming normalcy after traumatizing incidences.

We urge victims of personal injuries to seek expert legal counsel at the earliest not only due to time constraints imposed by statutes of limitations but also helping build stronger cases from inception itself by safeguarding critical evidence which can otherwise get compromised over-exhaustive duration. Particularly essential when keeping future potential ramifications aligned within mind subsequently justifying rightful entitlement covering lost income opportunities and additional incurred costs relating chronic prolonged care if necessary related directly to injuries caused initially.

At successful closure of each case, success lies crowned for team Carlson Bier seeing restitution reached thus ensuring suitable compensation catered effectively matching intricacies involved weaving seamlessly with individual requirement nuances ever so unique needing personalized attendances absolutely worth each strive placed diligently pursuing justice served righteously making us feel accomplished professionally above and beyond literal successes engraving humble victories themselves solely acknowledging client smiles restored graciously reminding constantly why we call ourselves your trusted partners indeed standing worthy being known as ONE within vast multitude many singing praise melodies echoing vastly across virtues represented professionally balanced delicately harmonizing tirelessly team spirit Carlson Bier radiates signing vibrantly passion enriched defining dedicated relentless strive reaching absolute commitment abiding sincerely mission vision defining Carlson Bier essentially now, tomorrow always each day every way.

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.
