“Looking out for the little guy” — you’ve probably heard the phrase before, and maybe the first time you heard it, it sounded a bit cliched.
But when you become the little guy, all of a sudden, when looking at the world from the point of view of a Belleville, IL personal injury lawyer, that phrase takes on new meaning. You want to know there are people out there who care about you and believe in leveling the playing field.
If you have cause to file a lawsuit, it probably means your life has changed and not for the better. You have been harmed, and more likely than not, the party or parties responsible are a lot bigger than you.
Construction injury? Defective product? Most of the time, the responsible party is a corporation. Hurt in the hospital? You may be suing the doctor, but they will be backed by a tight-fisted insurance company that will play a large role in the case.
Corporations are not evil. They play important roles in society. But they are often big and powerful and beholden to a board and officers and shareholders who are less than keen on parting with their hard-earned money — no matter how grievous the error that changed your life for the worse.
So you need someone in your corner who isn’t afraid to knock on the door of the big guy. That’s where we come in.
We represent you — which means we take seriously our responsibility to learn exactly how you have been impacted by their mistake. What happened, and why? How could it have been prevented, and who is responsible? Who needs to be held accountable?
A verdict or settlement won’t replace what you lost, but it can give you what you are owed: full and fair compensation.
At Keefe, Keefe & Unsell, P.C., we believe strongly in looking out for the little guy. It’s what we do — day in, day out. Leveling the playing field, one client at a time.
