Lawyer in Central Illinois: Personal Injury
Motor Vehicle Accidents ◊ Serious and Catastrophic Injury ◊ Wrongful Death
If you have been injured because of the careless or negligent act of another person, you want an experienced attorney to help you recover full and fair compensation for all your losses. You may be unable to work. You may have significant medical bills or need long-term medical care, including physical therapy or rehabilitation. You want a lawyer who has successfully helped other injured people get the recovery they need and deserve.
At the offices of Phillip M. Kirby, in Springfield and Mason City, we have over 36 years of practice experience. We built our practice on a commitment to personal service and attention. When you hire us to help you with a personal injury claim, you will work directly with attorney Kirby at all times. We believe that the most effective legal counsel takes place on a one-to-one basis.
Our Personal Injury Practice
We focus our personal injury practice on the needs of plaintiffs, handling claims involving:
- Motor vehicle accidents—including car, truck, motorcycle and pedestrian accidents
- Construction site accidents—cases involving improper training, negligent operation of machinery or equipment, falling objects or other negligence
We limit our practice to serious and catastrophic injury cases, taking claims involving traumatic brain injury (TBI), spinal cord trauma or paralysis, amputation or loss of limb, and accidental or wrongful death.
Because we have been handling personal injury claims for over a quarter of a century, we are intimately familiar with the comparative fault laws in Illinois. You can be found to be up to 49% liable for your own injuries and still recover from another party.
When we take your personal injury case, we will conduct a thorough investigation of the facts, evidence and circumstance of your injury, looking at medical records and police reports, and working with expert witnesses, when necessary, to build the best case for recovery of damages.
We take all personal injury cases on a contingent fee basis. We will only charge attorney fees if we are able to recover compensation for your losses.
