About Illinois Accident Lawyer Christopher R. Dixon
Personal injury lawyer Christopher Dixon works extremely hard for his clients. His dedication, compassion and work ethic have been been able to help numerous injury victims achieve financial security following their accident.
According to Dixon, any recognition from his efforts pales in comparison to the satisfaction he receives from helping families get through difficult times, guiding them through the legal system and obtaining fair compensation for their injuries.
Dixon understands that when a client first contacts him, that person has a number of anxiety-provoking unanswered questions: Do I really need a personal injury attorney? Should I make a statement to the insurance company? Is there enough insurance to cover my injuries? How much will it cost me to hire an attorney? Dixon is happy to provide the answers and leave the individual with a sense of ease.
The Dixon Injury Firm aggressively defends their clients from attempts by insurance companies to deny or devalue a claim. They understand that the desire to maximize corporate profits leads insurance companies to unfairly discount claims. Familiar with the many tactics that insurance claims adjusters and insurance defense attorneys adopt to further their company interests, The Dixon Injury Firm will fight back to ensure the injured party receives full reimbursement for all of their harms and losses.
If full compensation cannot be obtained through settlement negotiations, a community jury will be responsible for determining the value of the personal injury claim. Insurance corporations do not have the last word when it comes to case value. While some attorneys will try hard to force their client into a low settlement out of a fear of going to trial, Chris is comfortable taking the matter to trial if necessary. It is that willingness to go to trial which makes Dixon a formidable plaintiff’s attorney.
The hard work has paid off in concrete and tangible ways. Dixon’s recent recoveries include a $30 million trial judgment in a sexual assault case, a $2 million settlement involving a commercial bus crash, a $2,750,000.00 judgment for a paintball injury, a $1,000,000 settlement for a commercial truck crash, a $600,000 settlement for a car accident, and a $250,000 settlement in a slip-and-fall at a restaurant.
Helping clients get on the road to recovery is extremely important at The Dixon Injury Firm. It is also important to give back to the community. That’s why Dixon co-founded a nonprofit group, the St. Louis Suit Project, whose main goal is to provide quality new and gently used business attire to those in need. The Suit Project has helped give thousands of suits to individuals in need to help eliminate the barriers caused by financial inequality.
