After an accident, injury victims are often in pain and worrying about their future. You may feel like you’re alone, but there are people who can help. Schweickert Ganassin Krzak Rundio, LLP is a personal injury law firm in Peru, Illinois that gives injury victims a voice. With aid from a Peru personal injury lawyer, you can file a lawsuit and hold the person who caused your injuries responsible for their actions.
When you stand up to someone, you’re showing their actions were unacceptable. While your personal injury case can help you recover financially, you can also send a message to the liable party. This could be a distracted driver who wasn’t paying attention to the road and rear-ended your car, a trucking company who pushed their drivers and put profit over safety, or a company that put out a defective product which put you in the hospital with injuries. A personal injury claim can do more than help you and your family. Your claim could bring about change that prevents this from happening to another person. We’ll work diligently to make sure your voice is heard.
If our lawyers take on your case, you can rest assured knowing we will protect your best interests every step of the way. We leave no fact or detail unchecked when we investigate your case. For example, was the driver of the car that hit you drinking or taking an illegal substance? Was the truck driver who caused a serious accident asleep at the wheel, texting, or fatigued from a lack of sleep? Each case is unique and just because it may be similar to others, it doesn’t mean the outcome is the same. We evaluate and work each case up, individually and with extreme attention to detail. We consult with experts when necessary, and review all the necessary documents like medical records, police reports, photographs, videos, witness statements, and anything else relevant to your case.

How Can Legal Action Help You?
Deciding to take legal action takes a lot of consideration. You may be wary of taking a legal route because of the time it will take and the potential costs of case that takes a long time to reach a conclusion.
However, there are many benefits to exploring your legal options. When you have expenses piling up, they can completely upend your life and also affect your family, but your personal injury claim can provide you with compensation that will cover these costs. A successful claim can give you financial peace of mind. This can include covering losses like:
- Lost wages
- Medical expenses
- Future medical costs (rehabilitation, physical therapy)
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of consortium
We’ll fight for you to recover the damages that resulted from the accident. While this won’t undo the pain the accident caused, you can take solace in knowing that you’ll have means to move on from the financial repercussions. This will allow you to focus on the steps you need to take to recover instead of how you’re going to afford medical care or pay bills if you cannot work.
If you’re considering filing a claim but haven’t yet found legal representation, you may encounter insurance adjusters trying to get you to make statements about your health and to try to settle your case quickly. While reaching a conclusion to your claim sounds appealing, it’s likely their settlement offer is less than you deserve. An insurance company is looking out for their best interests, not yours. If you accept a settlement too early, it may not cover your losses, which means you may have to pay for expenses out of pocket.
Dealing with insurance companies can be intimidating, but our Peru lawyers can help you. When you have Schweickert Ganassin Krzak Rundio, LLP at your side, you can depend on us to conduct a thorough investigation of how your injury happened, take every measure to hold the responsible party accountable for their actions, and aid you in fully presenting your case to obtain the maximum compensation for your injuries.
Proudly Based in Peru, Illinois
Our firm is proud to call Peru home. The citizens of Peru are hard-working, trustworthy people, and they deserve to know we are here to protect their rights no matter what.
Peru’s combination of rich history and beautiful scenery make it an ideal place to put down roots. For example, our city is home to the Westclox Museum, which showcases the history of the Western Clock Company. The company was founded in Peru and operated in the city for decades. Their history of making clocks for the country reaches back to 1885.
Our city also is right next to the Illinois River, which provides plenty of entertainment and natural beauty for those who love the water. But that’s not the only natural attraction we have. Peru is about 15 minutes away from Starved Rock State Park, Illinois’ No. 1 attraction. The trails are full of waterfalls and wildlife and make for the perfect getaway. While most would probably want to hike in nice weather, the park also offers fantastic winter sights to those who brave the cold. When the waters freeze and turn into icefalls, the pristine winter landscape is something no hiker will ever forget.
We know the value of our city and we respect our place in it. Our firm protects the citizens who have been wrongfully injured so they can continue to live here in peace. We want you to know that if we are handling your case, you can trust that we’re going to do everything we can to help you.
