Personal Injury Attorney in Pinckneyville, IL. Personal injury laws pertain to the legal complexities associated with a civil suit arising from the negligent actions of a person, company, or corporation, that induce injury to a victim. Contrary to criminal cases, a private plaintiff solicits monetary compensation corresponding to the damage suffered caused by the careless or reckless conduct of the defendant. The Pinckneyville injury lawyers at Burger Law know that the key to obtaining fair and just compensation is to prove the negligence of the individual who provoked the accident. We collect all evidence that will support a claim including medical records, witness testimony, and police reports, to ensure we present a solid case for every client.
