“Shoulder Injury Car Accident”

“Auto Accident Settlement”

Mr. Halliday represented me in an auto collision about two years ago. I was very impressed with his knowledge in this area of law and fairly quick resolution. I had a shoulder injury that the insurance company tried to initially deny. I was very happy with the result of settlement.

– Dillon

“Wrongful Death”

Mr. Halliday represented my family in the Wrongful Death of my mother following a misdiagnosis of cancer. Despite his youthful appearance, he was well informed in the area of law of which I didn't know a great deal about. He was able to keep my family calm and was able to answer the questions we sought and we wound up with as satisfactory resolution. I highly recommend Mr. Halliday to handle any injury matter that involves the death of a loved one.

Do I Have to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

The personal injury claims process is very complex and can be overwhelming for many accident victims. While many people expect insurance companies to oversee the process in an equitable manner, these major companies consistently put their interests before accident victims, attempting to manipulate people into settling for a smaller payout. With an experienced attorney from Halliday McCall, we will make sure you are awarded the highest settlement possible.

How Much is My Claim Worth?

This is a common question many clients have. The truth is, every case is different. To better determine the value of your claim, you must take into consideration the cost of your past, present, and future medical expenses. Claims can also include pain and suffering, property damage, lost wages and lost earning capacity, and rehabilitation.

Can I Still Get a Free Consultation?

Yes. You are entitled to a no-obligation, free consultation on your case.

How Long Do I Have to get an Attorney After an Accident?

Every type of case has a statute of limitations. This means that you only have a certain amount of time to file your claim. In Illinois, the statute of limitations is generally two years for an auto accident claim, but some matters have as little as 6 months and 1 year depending who is at fault. Worker compensation claims must give notice within 45 days to their employers; Some employment claims are limited to 180 days. Since time is of the essence, don’t put off seeking legal help. Other statutes for limitations can be much shorter and many people do not realize the short window they have to file their claim. *Disclaimer: different types of cases have their own statute of limitations, please call and ask about your situation.
