Personal Injury

We are dedicated to helping accident victims pursue proper actions against those responsible for their harm. Mr. Ackerman has extensive trial experience and is willing to take matters to court when fair settlements cannot be reached, always acting in the best interest of the client given their situation. Whether you have been injured in a car or truck crash, in a work-related accident, or due to a medical provider or nursing home’s negligence, our firm can help you determine your next legal steps.

As a personal injury lawyer in the Springfield Illinois area, Jim Ackerman understands that a serious injury as a result of another party's actions requires considerable efforts in recovery that can leave you with substantial medical bills and time missed from work. Personal injury claims are most often based on the legal theory of negligence, which applies when one party breaches their duty of care to a victim. Most personal injury cases in Illinois must be filed within the two-year statute of limitations set by the state, but exceptions exist for some claims. Consulting an experienced attorney at Ackerman Law Office can help make sure that your rights are preserved after you have been injured.
