Chicago Injury Lawyers

The question for us today is from Gloria who passed out and fell down at a funeral home.

Remember if you have a question that you would like to submit, you can do so atcalls@desalvolaw.com or you can call and leave your question at 888-HURT-318.

Here is Gloria’s question:

I was at a funeral and all of a sudden I felt a sharp pain and I had to be rushed to the hospital.

Now I have medical bills that I cannot pay.

Is there anything you can do for me?

Thank you for the question, Gloria.

I am sorry to hear that you got hurt, but you know, in every kind of injury case we have to prove that the other person or company that we are trying to sue did something wrong and what they did wrong caused your injury.

Unfortunately, based on the information you gave me, it sounds like you were at a funeral, you became light headed, you passed out and you fell down.

So the question is, under that situation, who is really at fault for causing you to pass out and fall down.

It would be a completely different circumstance if you were walking and tripped on a loose stair or loose carpeting.

Since in every kind of case we have to prove that someone did something wrong, and what they did wrong caused your injury, I don’t think you have a case.

Now there is a big exception to that having to prove something wrong which injured you.

That exception is in workers compensation cases.

In workers compensation cases in the state of Illinois, all we really have to prove is that you were employed, and you were doing your job when you got hurt.

So in a workers comp case, we don’t have to prove that your employer did anything wrong.

We don’t have to prove an unsafe condition.

We don’t have to prove a dangerous work environment.

All we have to prove is that you were employed and that you were hurt while on the job and the case is actionable.

But in every third party case, whether it was a car crash, a fall down, any kind of injury case that goes to court not at the workers comp commission, we have to sue somebody that was legally responsible for your injuries.

So I am sorry I cannot help you with this one, but if you have more information and want to call my office, by all means give me a call.

Sometimes the news that I give clients or potential clients is not great news, but it is better that you know the truth early on than have false hope for a case that we cannot recover on.

If you have more information you can call me at 888-HURT-318 or you can contact me at calls@desalvolaw.com

And for our viewers who are not Gloria, by all means please send them in to calls@desalvolaw.com or you can call at 888-HURT-318 and I would be happy to answer your questions.

I offer a free consultation in person or by telephone, your choice.

I can answer all of your questions with no obligation.
