Koester Law, PLLC Understands that Results Matter the Most in Personal Injury Cases

Champaign Urbana personal injury law firm Koester Law, PLLC understands that when you or a loved one is injured, whether in an automobile accident, through doctor errors and medical malpractice, or by a defective or dangerous product, you want to achieve the highest monetary recovery possible for you pain and suffering. This does mean that you are “greedy” or “taking advantage of the system.” In fact, most personal injury and accident case settlements and jury verdicts are paid by insurance companies, so even the doctor or other driver will not suffer tremendous loss.

Furthermore, In Illinois personal injury victims are only allowed one form of compensation to recover the costs of their medical bills and pain and suffering—the civil justice system. This means that filing a lawsuit, or negotiating with an automobile insurance adjuster, is the only way that a resident of Champaign Urbana or any other town across Illinois, is the only method that is available for recourse and compensation after an accident or act of negligence.

At Koester Law, PLLC, we are very proud of our large recoveries for our past clients. Our team of Champaign Urbana personal injury and accident attorneys are also proud of the long-running relationships that we develop with our clients and often their families. We have achieved large money settlements across Illinois including Champaign, Monticello, Danville, Bloomington-Normal, Chicago, and beyond. If you live In Champaign County, or anywhere in Illinois, you do not need to find a lawyer in Chicago to receive the level of expertise associated with big-city law firms. Koester Law, PLLC is here to provide you with the highest level of protection, along with a small-town mentality. We think our result speak for themselves.
