Personal injury refers to any variety of injuries or death that occurred because of the negligence of another person or party. Under the law, if an injury victim is able to demonstrate that another entity was legally responsible for an accident, the person, their insurance, and others associated with the accident can be held liable for compensating medical costs, property damage, loss of wages, and more.
Osvaldo Rodriguez, P.C. helps injury victims claim the compensation they deserve under the law when the fault of an accident lies with the other party.

Compensation For Your Injuries
If you or someone you love was injured or killed in an accident, it is likely that you have several concerns about medical bills, insurance claims, and how you will be able to pay for the accident. You are not legally obligated to pay for the costs of hospitalization, doctor’s visits, property damages, or funeral costs, all of being areas where we have helped others like you before. It is important that you consult with a personal injury attorney to discuss your options and pursue avenues that will help you receive compensation for all damages caused at the hands of someone else.
Illinois law provides that any person who is injured due to the fault of another is entitled to receive fair compensation for any associated monetary setbacks. These rights, among others, are afforded to those who have suffered a significant injury, including:
- Compensation for reasonable and necessary medical care
- Compensation for lost time or earnings
- Damages for pain and suffering from the injury
- Damages for loss of enjoyment of normal life experienced or likely to be experienced
These rights should alleviate a lot of your concerns if you have been involved in a personal injury. At Osvaldo Rodriguez, P.C., he seeks to claim compensation so that the burden of monetary loss doesn't fall on you. He will also fight for a fair compensation that adequately covers your pain and suffering. In addition, all our cases are taken on a contingency fee basis, so you never have to pay upfront legal fees. Call us today for your free consultation.
