A Former Insurance Defense Lawyer Who Is Ready To Fight For You In Injury Cases

Injuries from car accidents and other mishaps can have far-reaching implications. When they occur because of someone else's negligence, the injured party should not have to suffer the financial consequences.

At The Lerum Law Firm in Chicago, we advocate aggressively for injured parties in a broad range of personal injury lawsuits. While our focus in these cases is on recovering the full amount of compensation our clients deserve, our services go well beyond the pursuit of money. We emphasize a personal approach, helping injured parties receive the medical treatment they need and removing the stress involved with dealing with insurance company representatives by handling all communications for our clients.

Our personal injury cases are taken on a contingency fee basis. You will only pay an attorney fee if we obtain a financial recovery for you, either through a settlement or a court judgment. Call 312-782-1087 to schedule a consultation.

A Record Of Success

The firm's founding attorney, Norman J. Lerum, has been an unwavering advocate for injured parties for more than 30 years. He has obtained a number of sizable settlements and judgments by developing strong cases that hold up to the insurance companies' intense scrutiny.

He is an accomplished litigator who will not hesitate to go to trial if a fair agreement cannot be reached through negotiation. His trial experience is a key to negotiating from a position of strength in attempt to reach a fair settlement without litigating.

Mr. Lerum worked in insurance defense early in his career. That experience provides him insight into the tactics insurance companies use to deny or underpay claims in injury cases. We are well-equipped to handle all types of injury lawsuits, including:

In the case James L. Wahle v. Duane D. Kolbrick, 14 L 816, Circuit Court of Lake County, Illinois. Mr. Lerum obtained a jury verdict and judgment on behalf of the plaintiff in the amount of $189,428 for a 79-year old plaintiff who suffered an inner ear injury in an automobile accident. The plaintiff's left ear became useless because he was unable to understand sound or wear a hearing aid in his left ear. State Farm offered $8,000 to settle the case.

Call Us Immediately Following Your Injury Accident

Personal injury cases often hinge upon evidence collected at the accident scene or key details provided by victims or witnesses soon after the accident. It is critical to speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible following your accident. Do not provide details about the accident to an insurance representative until you speak with your own lawyer.
