MEET
SAMUEL R.
CARL “SAM”

Samuel R. Carl is the co-founder of Midwest Injury Lawyers and a premier personal injury lawyer who has successfully resolved cases in numerous states throughout the country.

Prior to founding his law firm, Sam spent years protecting the rights of injured victims and their families, securing millions of dollars for his clients through jury verdicts and settlements.

In 2019, he obtained a record-setting jury verdict for a motorcycle accident in Dixon, IL after rejecting the insurance company’s policy-limits offer on the first day of trial. Sam has settled or taken to verdict hundreds of cases throughout his career, recovering in excess of $25 million dollars for his clients and their families.

Education and
Background

Sam was born and raised in the Chicagoland area. He obtained his Juris Doctor from DePaul’s College of Law in May 2011, where he was named to the Dean’s List. Before that, he received his Bachelor’s Degree at the University of Delaware where he earned distinctions as a scholar-athlete.

Sam was admitted to the Illinois State Bar in 2011, but his courtroom experience started before he graduated law school. As an Illinois Supreme Court Rule 711 law clerk with the Cook County Public Defender’s office, Sam successfully litigated and won his first trial when he was only 24 years old.

A decade later, Sam continues to dedicate himself to his clients, using every tool at his disposal to provide the highest level of service for those he represents.

Personal Dedication
to Victims

Sam has shown throughout his career that he is not afraid of a challenge and will fight passionately to hold accountable those responsible for harming innocent people. Known as a caring, diligent, and fierce advocate, he is well-respected by his colleagues as well as his opponents.

As your personal injury attorney, I realize that behind every accident and injury case there is a human, a family whose life has been greatly affected. I firmly believe that legal justice should be available to everyone. That is why I became an injury lawyer: to give victims the power to fight for themselves and their families.

Sam is aware that many injured people have little to no experience with claims or lawsuits, which is why constant communication with his clients is a top priority. He believes that an attorney’s duty is not only to aggressively and creatively pursue justice, but also to ensure that the people he represents fully understand and feel comfortable with what can often seem like a confusing or intimidating process.

There have been few things in my life that feel more rewarding than advocating for an injured client, and I look forward to doing so every day. I fight and will continue to fight for the rights of each and every one of my clients.

Extensive and Varied
Experience

With the wide range of cases that come across his desk, Sam has dealt with matters at all ends of the spectrum of personal injury law. In doing so, he has developed an understanding that no two cases or clients are the same, and that each deserves his full attention and effort.

When an individual or family hires a personal injury attorney, they deserve to have their case treated with the utmost care and respect. We simply will not take on a case unless we are able to give it 100% of the attention it requires.

Sam also understands the importance of working with qualified experts to assist in getting his clients the full amount of compensation they are rightfully entitled to; not just for the losses they have suffered, but the losses they will continue to suffer in the future.

Mr. Carl routinely consults with medical experts, engineering experts, vocational rehabilitation experts, and economic experts to assist in proving these damages.

Outside of the office, Sam spends most of his free time with family and friends, is active outdoors, and enjoys reading and traveling. Sam is also active in numerous charitable organizations including Pencils of Promise, a non-profit organization that builds schools and increases educational opportunities in the developing world.

In 2020, Sam Carl sponsored the building of a school in Ghana, Africa, providing access to education for hundreds of local underprivileged children.

We’re proud to be one of the personal injury law firms in Chicago to participate in philanthropic activities. When we say we’re here to serve, we mean it. Our firm has made it a mission to donate a portion of our personal firm earnings to several charities supporting children, schools, and people in need.
