About Carlson Bier

Personal Injury Lawyers in Winfield Illinois

At Carlson Bier, we steadfastly advocate for those who have sustained injuries due to the negligent actions of others. Our commitment is unyielding; as a premier personal injury law firm based in Illinois, our sole focus is on serving you and ensuring your rights are protected at all levels. We understand that experiencing unintended harm can be physically debilitating and psychologically distressing. It throws into disarray your daily life, resulting in lost wages, medical bills, and prolonged suffering.

Transcending mere legal representation, we position ourselves as unwavering pillars of support throughout your recovery journey. As specialized personal injury attorneys, it’s not just about winning the case but helping you reclaim control over your life post-incident. Shouldering this responsibility demands a thorough understanding of the intricate realms of personal injury law – something we at Carlson Bier take immense pride in.

Personal injuries can stem from multiple sources – vehicular accidents or slip-and-fall incidents among others. Irrespective of its origin, the outcome remains burdensome for the victim both financially and emotionally.

• Vehicular Accidents: Whether a car crash or motorcycle collision caused by reckless driving or impairment, these can result in devastating physical trauma or worst-case fatalities.

• Slip-and-Fall Incidents: These usually occur due to unsafe premises with hazards like wet floors, insufficient lighting, or improper maintenance attracting strict liability norms.

• Medical Malpractice: When incompetence leads healthcare providers astray from standard care protocols resulting in undesired consequences for patients.

As daunting as these situations are – fear not! With us at your side, you will not face them alone. Every stage serves an integral part of attaining justice – determining fault implying negligence on one party’s behalf causing said accident; identifying damages incurred which may encompass broader aspects beyond immediate medical expenses; The final stage revolves around assigning monetary value to said damages encapsulating economic (eg., lost income) and non-economic (eg. pain and suffering) aspects.

We believe in empowering you via comprehensive understanding – the more aware you are, the stronger your position during this challenging time. Hence, appreciating how Illinois’ statute of limitations impacts personal injury cases is critical – claims must be filed within a two-year window post-incident or from discovery date for latent injuries.

Let’s further deliberate on third-party negligence attributing to accidents and subsequent harm, majorly constituting fault determination basis in personal injury law. This concept highlights that a party failed to execute ‘reasonable care,’ thereby inflicting unjustified injuries. For instance, if neglecting road safety rules leads to an accident causing significant physical damage – it becomes attributable as ‘negligent action’.

Moreover, venturing into ‘strict liability’ laws underpinning specific incidents (like slip-and-fall scenarios), we decode their inherent difference from general negligence norms – absence of any requisite proof regarding careless behavior by accused party causing said accident.

Given this intricate legal landscape characterization surrounding personal injury law sphere, establishing robust legal representation becomes indispensable. Herein comes Carlson Bier’s pivotal role! Backed by a formidable team armed with deep subject knowledge coupled with rigorous experience handling diverse litigation across Illinois’s complex judicial system ensures you’re offered nothing short of best-in-class advocacy services at every interaction juncture right from initial consultation towards final settlement negotiation fulfilment.

Carrying forward our promised dedication towards armoring you better through awareness enrichment, let’s explore compensation facets associated with personal injury claims. Often considered confusing due to varying individual-specific factors determining payout amounts like severity magnitude of sustained injuries or impact scope on victim’s ability earning potential among others need precise calculations forming claim substantiation basis:

• Economic Damages: These reflect direct financial loss bearers bearing reimbursement necessity like medical expenses covering hospitalization costs or lost wages from work incapability.

• Non-Economic Damages: Addressing psychological inflictions such as distress or trauma, these calculations can prove challenging due to their inherent abstract nature demanding skillful articulation for successful acceptable valuation establishment.

At Carlson Bier, your fight becomes ours – be it accommodating flexible consultation schedules to meticulously crafted arguments echoing your viewpoint resoundingly; we leave no stone unturned.

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. 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)
