Many personal injury cases are submitted and filed every year. Personal injury cases involve any injury inflicted upon a victim as a result of the careless and reckless actions of another. If you are the victim of a personal injury, you have the right to file a claim and sue the offender for just compensation.

Each claim requires an extensive followup process, including filing paperwork, ongoing communication with various institutions, and occasional court cases. In addition to these, some legal and technical terminology requires the interpretation and understanding of seasoned professionals.

Maneuvering the legal system can be overwhelming to those recovering from injuries, making it necessary to seek legal advice from a qualified, experienced personal injury attorney.

Our personal law professionals in Steger, Illinois, will work tirelessly to ensure that you receive proper compensation. It is imperative to seek out highly knowledgable representation in order to receive the best possible outcome.

We acknowledge the trauma people endure from personal injuries and strive to alleviate some of that suffering with the proper legal help. We are aware of the extensive consequences these incidents can have, sometimes lasting after treatment has been completed. Our lawyers will use this knowledge to build a strong, thorough case before a law court.

We will handle every detail to alleviate your stress, ensure your just compensation, and guarantee you a comfortable life post-incident. Our lawyers will provide you with personal support and work tirelessly so that you can focus only on recuperation and recovery.

We recommend that you take full advantage of the services of a personal injury lawyer in order to be treated fairly and receive just compensation. Often, guilty parties will offer to settle rather than going through the court process, and many victims would prefer to skip the stress and inconvenience of a lengthy trial. In cases like these, it is imperative to employ a personal injury lawyer’s skilled services. Your attorney will consider the settlement offered and decide if the magnitude of your loss, including missed work days and necessary treatment, is reflected in that settlement.

Our attorneys possess an innate understanding of how to utilize their litigation and negotiation skills in order to guarantee a just process, helping ensure that you obtain fair compensation from the other party.


Building a negligence case requires the injured party to prove actual negligence through both factual and legal causation. The injured party must also prove that the act was legally sufficient to make the defendant liable.

Evidence of legal and actual causation can prevent an ongoing or indefinite trial for the defendant. Proof that one party caused the injury can be used as evidence of legal causation.

Proximity between the negligent and injured parties is a prominent deciding factor on the legal causation decision. Establishing negligence is easier with less distance between the two parties, making it also easier to prove legal causation. Evidence of legal causation is crucial in legal proceedings because it allows the court to ensure that there is sufficient evidence against the defendant before ordering the payment of damages.

Proving proximity in medical malpractice cases, particularly surgical errors, is much easier. However, it can be more difficult to find a proximate cause for a failed diagnosis because you cannot prove a physical encounter. Unless the injured person was subject to multiple surgeries with different doctors in a given period of time, surgical errors are generally easier.

A skilled negligence lawyer can help you differentiate between the actual and legal causation in your case. They can use this information to prove the specific damage caused by the defendant. We have highly experienced Steger attorneys at Costa Ivone, LLC, who can assist you with your case. We offer extensive legal assistance to help you build your negligence case and receive the compensation you deserve.

Experienced attorneys with high success rates can handle negligence law. It requires extensive time, work, and money to prove negligence, making it beneficial to employ the services of a certified legal expert to handle your negligence case.

Every detail of your case will be handled by your attorney, including the gathering of evidence and analyzing of this information to build a strong and compelling case. As soon as a lawyer is able to prove negligence, negotiations will proceed, especially if there is no need for additional charges and the negligent party is eager to conclude the procedure.


Say, for example, Maria is moving houses, so she is driving her car with items piled to the ceiling, which are obstructing her view. Jessica is driving too fast along the street that Maria’s street crosses.

Take the example of Lindsay moving to a new house and driving her car with her personal items piled to the ceiling, effectively obstructing her view. Michelle is driving too fast along the street that intersects with Lindsay’s. Lindsay doesn’t see Michelle’s car and pulls out in front of her, hitting her car and causing an accident. Michelle would have had more time to swerve or stop had she not been speeding. As both drivers are partially responsible for this accident, their insurance company will apply comparative negligence laws to determine which party is liable to pay for the damages accumulated in the car accident.

In order to recover damages, Illinois uses modified comparative negligence, which states that an injured person may be able to recover damages if he or she is less than 50 percent at fault. How much is recovered can be reduced in proportion to the amount of fault each party contributes to the accident.

In the previous example, a judge might find one person in the automobile accident 75% at fault, and the driver who is 25% at fault could then collect damages, as their portion of blame is less than 50%. However, he or she may only be awarded 75% of the cost of damages and medical costs by the other driver’s insurance company.

We have skilled negligence law attorneys in the Steger area. We can assist you to provide the best result in your negligence case.
