About Carlson Bier

Personal Injury Lawyers in West Elsdon Illinois

Welcome to Carlson Bier, an established law firm that specializes in personal injury cases in the state of Illinois. We understand that misfortune can happen at any time and when it does, you need a proven team of attorneys who will champion your rights with diligence and the highest degree of professional integrity.

Personal injury incidents revolve around diverse situations wherein an individual may be physically or emotionally injured, or their private property may be damaged due to negligence exhibited by another party. This category branches out into numerous specific areas such as car accidents, medical malpractice, slip and falls, product liability and wrongful death claims.

At Carlson Bier we have seen first hand how traumatic these incidents can be on a person’s life; not just physically but emotionally as well. Countless sleepless nights worrying about medical bills, lost wages, litigation fees; all while trying to recover from an unforeseen calamity can take a huge toll on an individual’s mental wellbeing.

We do our best for clients caught up in these unfortunate circumstances by diligently guiding them through every step of the legal process:

• We thoroughly investigate each situation unfolding the chain of events leading up to the incident.

• With meticulous precision we help collect relevant evidence strengthening your case.

• Utilizing our expert negotiation skills we fight for fair compensation optimizing your chances for recovery without financial stress.

Understanding fault is also pivotal within personal injury cases because Illinois operates under comparative fault law which means even if you were partially responsible for causing your own injuries you might still receive some compensation although it would potentially be reduced based on percentage of fault.

Furthermore, while the statute of limitations typically prescribes two years from date of accident/injury occurrence within which one must file a lawsuit; pursuing a claim sooner increases likelihood of procuring crucial evidence before its potential disappearance thereby bolstering strength of claim substantially.

All lawyers practicing personal injury law are not created equal hence why choosing right representation is so important. Here are our three tenets which form the cornerstone of Carlson Bier’s practice:

• Demonstrable Experience – With numerous successful cases under our belt we bring a wealth of knowledge to strengthen your claim.

• Expertise & Skill – When complex situations arise, our lawyers thrive! Skilled negotiation and litigation prowess are commendable traits within our team enhancing the likelihood of just compensation for your injuries.

• Client-Centered Approach – At Carlson Bier, you matter. We work tirelessly offering support while ensuring complete transparency simplifying legal jargon in a manner that is easy to understand providing clarity at all times.

Time can be both a healer and villain when it comes to personal injury cases. Hence, it is important to act swiftly not only for recovery but also to secure necessary financial compensation required for medical procedures; rehabilitation costs and potential lost wages due to incapacitation caused by accident/injury occurrence.

Every case is different with innumerable variables dictating potential outcomes making it difficult for individuals or non-experts to accurately quantify envisaged compensation. This certainly calls into question – What’s my case worth? Navigating these tumultuous waters alone can be daunting but fear not as help is merely a click away at Carlson Bier! Click the button below, allow us navigate you towards recovery freeing yourself from unnecessary stress letting justice served in your favor be your focus.

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.
