    What R.F. Wittmeyer Ltd can do for you
    and why you will be happy you hired our personal injury law firm

    • 1)
      We take on the burden of handling your case, so you can focus on regaining your health.
      We will help you understand and get your medical bills paid, and guide you on how to best utilize all available insurance coverage to maximize your net recovery. We will manage your case throughout, and protect you from the insurance companies who are not your friend. We will answer all of your questions at any time.
    • 2)
      We will preserve evidence
      If necessary, we will send investigators to the scene of the accident to locate and interview witnesses and collect and preserve evidence.
    • 3)
      No recovery-No fee.
      If you don’t make a recovery, you don’t pay! We work only on a contingency fee basis (basically, a commission), and we advance all out-of-pocket expenses so you pay no up-front costs.
    • 4)
      We maximize verdicts and settlements
      Our firm has a proven track record of multi-million dollar cases. But not every case is a million dollar case. We have also obtained top dollar verdicts and settlements on many other cases. If we take on your case, our experienced team of attorneys will fight to maximize your recovery.
    • 5)
      Winning in the courtroom
      Many law firms refer their clients out when a lawsuit has to be filed. If a lawsuit needs to be filed in your case, our firm will file suit and fight your case in the courtroom. Our litigation team has lawyers with many years of experience fighting cases in court.
    • 6)
      If you are in the hospital or can’t make it to our office, we will come to you.
      Sometimes people are in the hospital, rehab center, or their injuries otherwise prevent them from coming into our office. If you can’t make it to our office, we will come to where you are to meet with you. Either way, one of our lawyers will meet with you in person, answer all your questions, explain the process to you, and get any necessary forms signed to allow you to hire us as your attorneys.

    I was represented by the attorneys and staff in an amazing turn of events. They handled my case with the utmost attention and care. Always getting back to me with any questions I had and explained to me every step of the process. I would recommend Mr Wittmeyer’s firm for your personal injury case. I was very pleased with the outcome.

    Eileen Prendwegast

    The whole attorney’s office is highly professional from start to finish and even beyond the finish line. They never stopped caring about me as a person, which tremendously helps to build up the trust you need, to have the office as a partner in your dealings. Communication always was initiated very quickly by the office and any response concerning my questions came back equally quick. Thank you so much for taking care of your clients like this! I strongly recommend this office!

    Sheryl Guill

    I used this law firm. Cindy is my attorney. I felt comfortable with this firm from the moment I walked in the door. They are so great to work with. Cindy and the staff kept me updated throughout my whole process. I would highly recommend them.

    When I was hurt I had no idea if I had a legitimate case. Mr. Wittmeyer sat down with me and my wife to listen to my situation and determined that I did have a case. Mr. Wittmeyer and Mr. La Cost carefully guided us through the process, answering all of our questions. The end result turned out much better than we ever thought. Thank you Ron, Greg and your top level staff!

    Caitlin Golota

    After being in a car accident with my mom in August of 2018, I was fortunate enough to receive a recommendation to meet with Ron Wittmeyer for my sustained injuries. He met with us early on after the accident and provided guidance on the overwhelming financial aspect of the accident, leaving me to focus on myself and healing. Once my case went to suit, Cindy Scolaro became my point person. She was the most excellent attorney. The law suit process can be extremely stressful, but she kept my mom and I informed throughout the entire process. Cindy was patient with our many questions and listened to all of our concerns. I couldn't have asked for a more supportive, honest, and hardworking attorney. I would highly recommend Cindy Scolaro, for personal injury law, from the Law Offices of Rf Wittmeyer.

    A big thank you to Cindy Scolaro for all her help and support on settling our case. She was incredibly professional, courteous and provided timely information and feedback on all of our questions and concerns. We can't speak highly enough regarding all the staff at Ron's office. We highly recommend them to anyone.

    I had a great experience with Greg LaCost and the entire firm of RF Whittmeyer . I was here for a personal injury case that many others wouldn’t even look at. Greg was very attentive to my needs and to our goal of winning this case! He answered all of my questions and never made me feel I was bothering him. I will recommend Greg to as many as need his services ! The others in the firm were always a big help as well and some of the nicest people I’ve met!

    How much time do I have to file a lawsuit?

    It is important to keep the statutes of limitation in mind. With any civil claim, you have only a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit. Generally speaking, after that time frame, the courts will not consider your case. Over the years, we have seen many people contact our office who have not been able to recover the compensation that they would otherwise be entitled to, simply because they waited too long to contact a lawyer.

    Don’t make the same mistake. The quicker you contact a personal injury lawyer, the better your chances of receiving full compensation for your injuries. See our table of the statutes of limitations for different claims in the state of Illinois. If you have a question about whether or not you can still file a lawsuit for an injury claim, always contact a personal injury attorney. Statutes of limitations questions can be complex and should be addressed by an experienced lawyer. Any information on this website is not to be used as a substitute for legal advice.
