Personal Injury

What is personal injury?

Personal Injury law, sometimes referred to as “tort” law is the area of law which allows people who are hurt to recover from those who have done them harm as a result of negligence, recklessness or willful conduct.

How we can help you

The Law Office of James J. Gay fights for individuals who have sustained injuries in a variety of situations. Different degrees of fault can exist and several elements are necessary to prove a case in court and be successful against the wrongdoer or negligent party in a tort action. Also, more than one person or party may be at fault, and responsibility may be apportioned among all of the wrongdoers.

In some instances, the victim may even be partly at fault for the tragedy but that does not necessarily mean the person does not have a right to bring a lawsuit. Consulting with an experienced Chicago personal injury lawyer such as the Law Office of James J. Gay is important to determine whether or not a particular claim should be brought to court to achieve a fair resolution for an injured person.
