About Carlson Bier

Burn Injuries Lawyers in Wyanet Illinois

At Carlson Bier, we understand the devastating effects of burn injuries. As dedicated personal injury attorneys in Illinois, our main focus is to provide you with all necessary information and assistance for a fair recovery process. Burn injuries can happen anywhere, at any time – whether from an unexpected fire incident at your home or workplace accident – and can lead to life-altering consequences including ongoing pain, disfigurement, emotional trauma, financial strain from medical bills and lost income opportunities.

Knowledge is a powerful tool that can guide victims towards their legal rights. Here’s what you need to know about burn injuries:

• Types: Burn injuries are categorized into first-degree burns which affect only the outer skin layer causing redness and swelling; second-degree burns affecting both the outer and underlying layer of skin cause blistering and severe pain; while third degree burns damage or destroy all layers of skin leading to white or charred appearance.

• Causes: These could range from fires or explosions, chemical accidents, electrical incidents, overly hot liquids or steam – even exposure to radiation.

• Treatment: Depending on severity levels it may involve debridement (removal) of dead tissues followed by grafting procedures which implants healthy skin onto affected areas; physical therapy exercises for regaining normal body functioning as well as psychological support measures to address post-trauma mental health issues.

Yet another crucial aspect you must be aware of revolves around legal respites available under Illinois law – where negligence plays a huge role in determining liability. The law demands proof that the offending party exhibited negligent behavior resulting in your burn injury. For instance- if an employer fails to implement adequate safety measures at work premises leading to employee harm due to accidental fires, they hold blame for the incident thereby becoming liable for compensation payments.

It can indeed get overwhelming trying to navigate these complex battlegrounds alone amidst recovery challenges stemming from severe burn accidents – which leads us back to reemphasizing our commitment here at Carlson Bier. Our expert personal injury attorneys armed with industry insight, strategic planning skills and negotiation tactics will aim towards two main goals – holding the responsible party accountable and accurately calculating rightful compensation that takes into account your medical costs, loss of income, pain and suffering.

Bringing you closer to justice through every step of this legal journey is our fundamental priority. With careful case reviews taking into consideration unique circumstances surrounding your incident along with a comprehensive approach aimed at uncovering all viable avenues for financial recovery – we dedicate ourselves wholeheartedly to equipping you with ample resources needed for full recuperation from such devastating injuries.

Reaching out early could make or break your chances at winning rightful damages; as the ‘Statute of Limitations’ law in Illinois puts forth strict deadlines after which victims stand ineligible for legal recourse options. Hence it’s absolutely vital not waiting longer than necessary before seeking advice from an experienced attorney well-versed in intricate burn injury cases.

As trusted advocates passionately driven by protecting citizen rights here in Illinois, Carlson Bier consistently delivers professional services meant to ensure full-fledged support – from initial consultation rounds down until final verdict pronouncements inside courtroom walls.

Navigating unforeseen life challenges becomes less daunting when backed up by capable allies coding your path forward amidst potentially confusing legal complexities. At Carlson Bier, our seasoned personal injury lawyers strive towards offering just that reliability quotient mixed with professional expertise serving as assurance during tough times spun out of unfortunate incidents like severe burn injuries.

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.
