Our Clients’ Most Frequently Asked Questions

At The Fakhouri Firm, LLC, we are dedicated to getting you the answers you need so that you feel empowered to proceed. Review the questions below and contact us today to receive in-depth answers regarding your case.

Civil Litigation

What Should I Do If I Am Sued?

Immediately contact legal counsel. You may make a mistake on your own that could cost you resources and have a long-term negative impact on your future. An attorney can protect your best interests and use the law to your benefit.

How Long Does It Take To Reach A Settlement?

Every case is different. Without knowing the details of your case, we cannot predict how long the settlement process will take.

Personal Injury

How Long Do I Have To File My Personal Injury Claim?

Under Illinois’ statute of limitations, you have two years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury claim.

How Do I Know If I Have A Personal Injury Claim?

We must prove that the other party’s negligence contributed to your injury. Just because you were injured does not mean that you have a personal injury claim. We will review your case and inform you of your options.

What Should I Do If My Insurance Company Offers Me A Settlement?

Do not accept a settlement offer prior to speaking with an attorney. It may be less than you are entitled to receive, and once you agree to a settlement amount you cannot come back later asking for more.

Business Litigation

How Do I Know What Entity Is Right For My New Business?

The entity you select depends on your business’s needs, the number of partners involved, tax benefits and other important considerations. We can help you to determine the entity that is right for your company.

When Do I Need To Create A Business Succession Plan?

You should have a succession plan in place when you start your business.

How Should My Partner And I Resolve A Dispute?

You have several options. You can choose to resolve a dispute through arbitration, mediation or litigation. Our lawyer will recommend the resolution strategy based on the situation.
