Pursue Maximum Compensation After A Serious Personal Injury
A personal injury can turn your life upside down in just a few moments. Your normal rhythm of life is suddenly disrupted by emergency medical treatments, perhaps a hospitalization, surgery and a challenging recovery process. At the same time that you should be giving your full efforts to healing, financial pressures can seem overwhelming. A personal injury attorney can alleviate burdens thanks to knowledge acquired through years of experience helping others who have suffered accidental injuries similar to yours.
Effective injury litigation requires both aggressive trial skills and sensitivity to the traumatic effects of an injury. From the beginning of the case, at Futrovsky, Forster & Scherr, Chtd., we investigate and identify the responsible parties, gather the necessary information from witnesses and review fault and damages. Our attorneys work closely with our clients to protect their rights and assist with their claims and, when necessary, litigate to ensure the maximum recovery to which our clients are entitled.

Questions We Often Hear About Personal Injury Law
A large part of our role as plaintiffs’ lawyers is to answer questions from clients and potential clients, such as the following:
What is the role of a personal injury lawyer in a case?
At Futrovsky, Forster & Scherr, Chtd., our track record of success puts legal opponents on notice that we will be ready to take a case to court if necessary. Through our investigative procedures, our lawyers determine whether a lawsuit is an advisable means of obtaining a satisfactory recovery. This investigation subsequently forms the basis of the litigator’s preparation of the case for presentation in negotiations, mediation, arbitration or trial.
What can I seek compensation for after an accident?
In addition to compensation for medical bills, you may be able to recover lost wages and expenses related to your injuries, such as disability accommodations, personal care assistance and more. Also, you may be entitled to general damages for pain and suffering, limitation of function, disfigurement and other non-economic losses.
How much time do I have to file a personal injury settlement?
The Statute of Limitations (the date by which you must file a lawsuit to protect your rights) varies depending on the state or jurisdiction in which you were injured. To protect your right to claim compensation, consult with an attorney as soon as possible after an accidental injury.
