About Carlson Bier

Personal Injury Lawyers in Vernon Hills Illinois

At Carlson Bier, we take pride in our unrelenting commitment and unparalleled expertise as a leading personal injury law firm servicing the great state of Illinois. Our mission centers on delivering exceptional legal assistance to clients who have unfortunately been side-lined by injuries caused due to another party’s negligence.

In understanding personal injury law, it’s crucial to note that it encompasses situations where one sustains harm due to someone else’s wrongful actions. This can span various scenarios from car accidents and slip and fall incidents, medical malpractice or even assault claims. It is within these instances that you may find yourself needing expert legal support which is what the professional team at Carlson Bier stands ready to provide.

A vital point for your awareness pertains to Statutes of Limitations laws in Illinois which essentially dictate deadlines for filing lawsuits. In most personal injury cases, this time limit consists of two years from when the incident occurred. Moving swiftly upon realizing an injury has happened can be consequential towards achieving a desirable settlement.

Moreover, Illinois practices what’s called comparative negligence law meaning that blame isn’t assigned absolutely but proportionately between involved parties based on their degree of fault for causing the accident. This benefits those partially liable since compensation won’t be denied entirely under such circumstances. Personal Injury Damage Caps are non-existent in Illinois; hence compensatory damages awarded recognizes no upper limits except in medical malpractice cases subjecting noneconomic damages like suffering upon patients or emotional distress incurred from providers’ errors or neglect.

Now while navigating such intricacies might seem daunting, do not fret. At Carlson Bier, our decade-long experience ensures meticulous handling every step of way through rigorous investigations into accident causes providing sound advice as well securing high-value settlements wherever feasible allowing for adequate recuperation both physically financially without undue stressors burdening clients further than already imposed unjustly.

Also noteworthy is – just as critical a detail – that obtaining justice doesn’t necessarily require proving opponent’s action illegal but conclusively establishing their wrongful conduct that procured injury. Proving this necessitates considerable legal know-how and dexterity, traits our accomplished personal injury lawyers possess in abundance.

Additionally, through our no-win-no-fee assurance policy means no payment will be due unless our earnest endeavors yield favorable outcomes for your claim. This noteworthy factor underscores not only the confidence vested in Carlson Bier’s ability to achieve positive results but also stands as a testament to our dedication towards ensuring justice prevails against negligent individuals or entities.

Equally indispensable when finding yourself confronting such unfortunate circumstances is understanding under what circumstance enlisting skilled legal guidance could prove pivotal. Thusly if:

– You’ve suffered serious injuries

– Liability isn’t clear

– The insurance company refuses fair settlement

A trusted professional consultation becomes highly beneficial.

Lastly, possessing knowledge never quite equals power until effectively applied where needed most – a principal coordinated link connecting clients with successful claims rests within understanding just how much one’s case is worth. Millions recovered over years in settlements ensure you unyielding representation Beside you at Carlson Bier depositor of trust navigating Illinois personal injury landscape together empowering victims back onto recovery path – stronger than ever behind resolute action we have pledged unwavering diligence delivering towards each entrusted claim rehabilitation quest seizes being merely an envisioned possibility stead transforms into steadfast realization unfolding right before your eyes ready waiting ‘click’ away don’t hesitate find out essential value rest assured while charting bold course promptly towards commencing healing journey toward both resolution restitution now matter precious moments ahead so push the button below seize opportunity discover sheer strength lies encased within recuperative potential alleviating worries bridging from past trials unknown future towards envisaged final triumph – equitable compensation bound destiny resounding justice finally ringing true Carlton Bier alongside every hard-fought step way steering course marking resolved difference victory horizon deeply etched within sight always binding promise delivered unequivocally now tomorrow forever all encompassing duty owed every valued client revered member our shared community.

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.
