Do you need to sign a medical release following an injury?
Do you know whether filing a claim is a "lawsuit"?
Do you know how soon you must report an injury?
How long do you have to file a claim?
How many doctors may you see?
How soon should you be paid after your injury?
Do you have to see the company doctor?
These are just a few questions you will be faced with after a work injury. Worker's Compensation in the State of Illinois can be quite complex. Insurance companies may not be the best source for learning your rights following an injury.
Your employer and its insurance carrier know the system and the law. The only person who may not know the law and their rights is the injured worker. You need your own expert and advocate, to protect your rights.
Reese & Reese has attorneys dedicated to the exclusive practice of worker's compensation. Let our attorneys work to protect you following your injury.
The law requires that the person or company responsible pay for your auto accident injuries and repairs. Many victims of car accidents try to handle their own personal injury cases, hoping that the insurance companies involved will settle as promptly and fairly as advertised. Unfortunately, not all insurance companies respond in that manner, and you need an Illinois auto accident expert on your side. Insurance companies' obligations are to their stockholders and policyholders, not to people injured in car accidents. Insurance companies have enormous advantages: vast wealth, armies of sharp, experienced adjusters and attorneys, and dozens of legal reasons to reduce or deny compensation. At Reese & Reese our obligation is to you.
Negotiating alone or waiting until the insurance company makes an offer can be frustrating and costly. One wrong move or one mistake can cost you money. Delaying or guessing about the value of your personal injury case can result in the loss of valuable rights and thousands of dollars.
Compensation can be sought for medical bills, lost wages, car rentals and repairs, and for any pain and suffering you've endured. An attorney from Reese & Reese is highly experienced in the field of personal injury law. We will take care of getting the proof needed to recover your damages when you've been injured. We will use every available resource to help you.

Some of the types of personal injury cases we handle include:
Our firm handles Estate Planning matters, which is the area dealing with the distribution of an individual's property at his or her death, taking into account wills, taxes, insurance, property, and trusts so as to gain maximum benefit of all laws and, at the same time, carrying out the person's wishes. Probate is the court proceeding through which a will is proved to be valid and the estate of a decedent is administered. The process generally includes collecting a decedent's assets, liquidating liabilities, paying necessary taxes and distribution of property to heirs.
Additionally Reese & Reese specializes in Probate and Estate administration. Probate is the legal process by which a person's debts are paid and assets are distributed upon his or her death. Lawyers refer to the entity that owns the deceased's assets until those assets are distributed as an "estate". Estate administration includes the probate process as well as non-probate transfers of the deceased's assets. Individual state laws direct the probate court how to distribute the deceased's estate.
