Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney?

If you have suffered an injury because of the negligence of another individual, you will need to obtain professional legal help. With the statute of limitations set in place for filing a personal injury claim in Illinois, you will also need to take action as soon as possible. Before you try to attempt to handle the legal aspects of your case on your own, you need to realize how the insurance company can take advantage of you and prevent you from obtaining the compensation you deserve.

If you have been injured in an automobile accident in which you were not at fault and you suffered injuries, it is advisable to obtain the legal representation of a knowledgeable Chicago personal injury attorney. An experienced lawyer will have a strong understanding of the personal injury laws within Illinois. Most individuals are unaware of the laws that pertain to the personal injury claim they are filing and do not know what they are legally entitled to as far as a recovery of their damages.


Your attorney can use his or her knowledge of the laws to represent you in court and dispute unfair or inaccurate claims by the opposing party or parties. When you are deciding whether to hire an experienced Chicago workers’ compensation lawyer from our firm, consider the following benefits that our personal injury attorneys can provide:

  • Assistance with property and physical damages
  • Negotiation for diminished value of damaged vehicle
  • Pursuit of compensation for temporary damages
  • Pursuit of compensation for permanent damages
  • Assistance with filing of a lawsuit
  • Legal advice on your options
  • Pursuit of compensation for medical bills

Not all of the legal objectives listed above will apply in each personal injury case, however.

Clients who handle their cases on their own risk their opportunity to obtain maximum compensation and the chance to fully recover the damages that resulted from the accident.


When you are assessing the qualities of a strong attorney to represent you through the various steps of your case, some of the characteristics to pursue in a law firm include:

  • Experience
  • Recognition among peers
  • Attentive representation
  • Positive case results

At Boudreau & Nisivaco, LLC, we have all of the above characteristics and are prepared to help you navigate the various aspects of your case. We have a strong background that sets us apart from other lawyers in this field of law and in this region. We have recovered more than $100 million in the past 30 years on behalf of our clients.

I came to John Nisivaco after being in a hit and run accident as a pedestrian. It was a very tough time for me and my family. When we contacted John we felt much more at ease. The whole experience was alleviated by John and the firm. He was upfront with us and told us all of our options and possible outcomes. With the case, we were always informed about its progress in a timely manner. I’m glad we came to John because he made our experience with my injury much easier and it was settled very quickly. He also looked ahead and made sure that I would be able to handle my settlement responsibly. I would recommend John Nisivaco to anyone who is thinking about hiring a personal injury attorney.

I just want to thank you so much for helping me get through a difficult time. I trusted you completely and you didn’t let me down. You were very professional and caring. My sister is going through a similar situation with her daughter and this incident happened over 3 years ago and she has gotten nowhere. I would highly recommend Boudreau & Nisivaco. You are the best!

Thank you so much for all of your help regarding my settlement! I am extremely grateful for all of your hard work and professionalism. You always took the time to answer my questions, and we knew there were many (sorry about that)! Again, a zillion Thank You's!


A few years ago, I used the law firm of Boudreau & Nisivaco for a work related injury and I was very impressed with their services. I received status updates in the mail and phone calls on my case as it progressed. Even after the settlement, my lawyer continued to call me to ask how I was doing. I would definitely recommend the Boudreau & Nisivaco law firm.


We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for representing us in our workers’ compensation claim in the most professional, knowledgeable and compassionate manner possible. You were there through the tears, the pain, and the heartache, and for that we will be forever grateful. You will always be very special to us.
