Injured? We're Ready to Fight for You



Accident & Personal Injury Frequently Asked Questions

If you’re seriously injured and someone else is at fault, hiring a lawyer can be one of the best you can do for yourself and your case. People represented by an experienced lawyer often recover significantly more money than they would if they didn’t. Why? Because insurance adjusters and companies know that you don’t fully understand the value of your case.

As trial lawyers, we know how to investigate and add significant value to your case. When you hire a lawyer, you’re leveling the playing field between you and the insurance company. We also take the stress off of your shoulders so you can focus on getting better.

When you contact Shannon Law Group, one of our lawyers will personally review your case at no cost to you. If we can help you, we will. If we’re unable to help you, we will refer you to another lawyer who can. Call us 24/7 at (312) 578-9501 to get started.

At Shannon Law Group, we are paid on a contingency fee basis. What does that mean? We don’t get paid until we come through for you at the end of your case. We take a fee when we achieve a settlement or award for you.

If we are unable to come through for you, we will absorb the costs of your case. As our client, you will never receive a bill or invoice from our office. 

In the United States, every state has a statute of limitations (or deadline) for filing an injury lawsuit. This deadline varies from 1-3 years. In Illinois, you typically have two years to file a lawsuit. That’s why it’s important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible after car accident or injury.

However, you should still contact a lawyer even if you believe your time has run out. It may not be too late to pursue a lawsuit. Contact us today to get started.

We are ALWAYS willing to try your case in front of a jury. We promise to go the extra mile to make sure you get the compensation you deserve--not what the insurance company thinks your claim is worth. 

We Will Put You First

We will ALWAYS treat you like how we would like to be treated. Your lawyer is your advocate, and he will be by your side throughout your case. 

Our job is to bear the burden of dealing with insurance companies and defense attorneys so that you can focus on your own recovery. Our #1 goal is to help you move forward toward a successful and secure future.

We'll Keep You Updated

We will always keep you updated on your case. If you have any questions, you can call us 24/7.  If you have a question about your case, you will speak with your lawyer, not a legal assistant. We'll return your call within 24 hours. The moment you hire us, we'll move your case to resolution as quickly as possible. 

We Go Above and Beyond

As our satisfied clients can attest, we come through for them when they need it most. We take our responsibility to our clients seriously.

Our Team Will Help You Get Back on Your Feet After a Catastrophic Accident

Every day, we place our trust in others.

We trust that transportation companies will hire and properly train their drivers. We have faith that doctors and medical staff will protect us rather than make a mistake. We hope that we won't get injured on the job.

Unfortunately, there are too many times when that trust is violated and innocent people suffer.

Unqualified truck drivers cause serious accidents, children are injured during birth, or our employers expose us to dangerous asbestos-containing products. When this happens to you, your trust is shattered. You've never been in this situation before, and you don't know where to turn or who to trust.

At Shannon Law Group, we have been there before. We've helped people in your shoes put their lives back together. As your personal injury attorney, we promise to always be by your side.

If you're not sure where to start after a serious injury, we welcome you to reach out to us. We'll point you in the right direction.
