The History of the South Side in Chicago, IL

The South Side is the largest of the three sections of Chicago. A land survey in the 1830s identified everything south of the Chicago River as the city’s “South Side.” Since that survey, The Loop was carved from it, but the South Side otherwise exists as it was originally mapped.

This area was home to meat packing plants and immigrant neighborhoods. Today, millions of people live and work in the South Side. Notable landmarks include the following:

South Side is an iconic Chicago neighborhood that has much to explore.

Our Personal Injury Law Firm’s Primary Practice Areas

Attorneys of Chicago Personal Injury Lawyers handles all types of personal injury cases, including those in the following practice areas:

Car Accidents

There were nearly 100,000 traffic accidents in Chicago in 2022. Many of these crashes happened on the South Side. Attorneys of Chicago Personal Injury Lawyers lead the charge for car accident compensation after a negligent driver crashes into you.

Construction Accidents

The South Side is alive with construction activity ranging from skyscrapers to residences. However, job sites expose workers to many hazards, such as falls, vehicle impacts, and electrocution. After a construction accident, our attorneys can explain all your legal options, including third-party lawsuits against anyone other than your employer who contributed to your injury.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycles have advantages because of their maneuverability and ease of parking. But crowded city streets and careless drivers can lead to motorcycle accidents. Attorneys of Chicago Personal Injury Lawyers will fight for fair injury compensation from insurers for negligent drivers.

Slip & Fall

Businesses, landlords, and property managers in the South Side are liable for injuries on their property caused by negligence. When you slip and fall on someone else’s premises, we fight for you against those responsible for the property.

Truck Accidents

Millions of trucks cross the South Side each year, whether they are carrying goods to and from local businesses or passing through on their way to Wisconsin or Indiana. When a truck crash happens, the victims may suffer catastrophic injuries. Our lawyers stand up to local and out-of-state trucking companies for compensation after truck accidents.

Wrongful Death

Sadly, people die in South Side accidents every day, from falls to auto crashes. When someone dies due to another’s negligent or wrongful conduct, their executor or personal representative can pursue a wrongful death claim on behalf of the surviving spouse, children, or other next of kin. Our lawyers lead the fight for compensation for your loved one’s death.

Damages Available in South Side Personal Injury Cases

The compensation you receive after an injury covers two categories of losses. Economic losses represent all the ways your injuries affect you financially. These losses include:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Future earnings losses
  • Out-of-pocket costs

Non-economic losses cover the ways your injuries affected your happiness and satisfaction with life. These losses include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Disability
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Disfigurement

You will document your losses with financial records like bank statements, receipts, and bills. Your testimony will also help prove your losses.

What Does It Cost To Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer in Cook County?

Personal injury lawyers in Illinois usually charge a contingency fee. This fee is calculated based on a percentage of the compensation the lawyer recovers for the client. This type of fee rewards lawyers for the outcomes they produce.

This fee benefits injured victims. First, you can hire a lawyer for your case without any upfront fees or charges. Second, the lawyer does not charge any attorney’s fees for a losing outcome. Finally, you can seek advice and updates during the case without worrying about incurring fees.

Hiring a contingency fee lawyer in the South Side is relatively easy. Illinois law requires lawyers to provide written fee agreements. Review the agreement carefully and consult the lawyer about any terms you don’t understand.

Statute of Limitations in Illinois Personal Injury Cases

The statute of limitations sets the deadline for filing a personal injury lawsuit. In Illinois, this deadline falls two years after the injury happened.

However, you should speak to a lawyer promptly after suffering an injury. Some claims, such as negligence claims against a government entity, might have shorter timelines for filing. 

Additionally, the deadline applies to the filing of a lawsuit. Your lawyer needs time to prepare an insurance claim and negotiate to settle it before resorting to a lawsuit.
