Why Us

We’ll Help You Make the Most of Your Accident Recovery

When you enlist the help of our team, we’ll pursue every angle to identify the entities who may be liable for your injuries. We will present a unified and organized case against all responsible parties and their insurance companies.

Simultaneously handling multiple claims arising from the same accident helps us streamline the recovery process and put more money into your pocket.

Why Us

How Much Is Your Injury Case Worth?

The amount of damages that may be awarded in your injury case varies depending on the type of accident, the degree of negligence involved, and the extent of injuries and damages you’ve suffered. You should not accept a settlement offer until the full extent of your injuries and losses is known.

The factors that are considered when determining your case’s value include:

  • The medical bills you’ve incurred
  • The treatment you’ll need in the future
  • Your lost wages and earning potential
  • Your physical pain and suffering
  • Your emotional distress
  • Whether your injuries were caused by egregious behavior

Don’t Settle for Less

It may be tempting to take the first settlement the insurance company offers. Unfortunately, insurance adjusters often contact victims before the true impact of the injuries set in.

While these insurance companies might act like they are on your side or that they have your best interests in mind, that simply isn’t the case. Their main concern is their own bottom line and they can be relentless when it comes to minimizing injury claims.

Remember, the people you’re going to be dealing with in the aftermath of an accident are likely experienced professionals and they represent the entities who have caused your pain. You need an experienced professional on your side to represent your rights as well. Once you have settled a case it will be difficult, if not impossible, to get compensation for additional losses that were not negotiated in the settlement.

Why Us

An Injury Attorney Who Takes Your Pain Personally

At Eames Law Group, Ltd., we pride ourselves on establishing close and personal relationships with our clients. You will not be just another anonymous name and number in our office. When you hire our firm, you’ll meet face-to-face with the injury attorney who will be handling your case. You will receive clear communication and updates as your case proceeds. We welcome the opportunity to answer your questions, guide you through the legal process, and help ease the stress and financial strain your accident has caused. We will even travel to meet with you if necessary to make this process more convenient for you.

Brent was there every step of the way with superior knowledge and intellect. What struck me was the kindness I found in him. He has always made sure my family and I were doing well. This kindness bridged the gap from the beginning of my case to the end, and continues today.

I’m convinced there isn’t a workers’ compensation issue too big or small for he and his law group to handle. Because of Brent these past Holidays were the best I could have imagined. You will not be disappointed when you choose Eames Law Group.

John D. (Bourbonnais, IL)Stars5/5

Mr. Eames is competent, efficient and approachable! He never fails to take my call if he is in the office and ALWAYS returns a call if he was not. Brent truly loves and cares about his job and works tirelessly to get results! Eames Law Group won’t be found advertising on tv and he doesn’t need to! I’ll gladly refer Brent Eames EVERY time! FIVE STARS!

Joey M.Stars5/5

Contacted all these commercial lawyers and even a couple local lawyers and they all said I had no case. I reached out to Mr. Eames and it was the best experience I’ve ever had with a lawyer. Not only was he very informative, kind, easy to get in contact with, he won my case. Would absolutely recommend him to anybody. Thanks Brent!!

Levell J.Stars5/5

For what I can see Brent is the kind of lawyer you want he sounds like a phenomenal lawyer some one I would like to know and have as my attorney I pray he takes my case..

Rob F. (Woodridge, IL)Stars5/5

I highly recommend Attorney Brent Eames of Eames Law Group. Brent is extremely personable, compassionate and will fight for you when no one else will. He has a specialty and extraordinary knowledge with all types of injury and work injury cases. However, if you are a police officer or firefighter injured in the line-of-duty in Illinois, you simply cannot afford to use anyone else. Thank you for all you have done and I know many others will benefit from your services for many years to come.

John B. (DeKalb, IL)Stars5/5

I’m a union ironworker and I suffered an injury on the job, resulting in a broken foot. Although the insurance company was paying me while I was off recovering, it seemed like they were not paying at the correct rate. I hired Brent Eames, and he got that all straightened out. He filed a request for hearing and got the insurance company to agree to the proper rate of pay, and then he got me a settlement which was more than double the amount the insurance company originally told me was their “final and best” offer. Brent is the best work comp lawyer there is!
