Founding Attorney Jared Staver

Helping people who’ve been injured is my calling, and I will fight to make things right for you.

The insurance system is built to work against you. Billion dollar insurance companies take money for premiums, but when you get injured, they look for any excuse to deny your claim. But when I step in, they know it’s time to play by the rules.

Everyone at Staver Law was very knowledgeable about my case and went above and beyond.

More about Jared

My whole life, I was surrounded by blue-collar, working-class people who made their living through physical labor. When a factory worker, mechanic, or laborer experienced an accident that came out of left field, their world — and the lives of their entire family — turned upside down. I saw how the insurance companies handled people like them after an accident and how the denials and delays only amplified the pain.

I knew I needed to help. I needed to stand by them in the courtroom and level the playing field in a system that was too often unfair. And so I built my career around personal injury law. I’ve spent the last 20+ years fighting for my clients and the compensation they deserve.

From the moment you talk to me or a member of my team, your case becomes our case. Your battle becomes our battle. We move with speed and determination, because putting your life back together can’t wait.

Jared represents clients in both Chicago’s State and Federal courts and surrounding communities including Cook, DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Lake, and Will counties. He has helped injured people all across Illinois and its neighboring states. Staver has offices in Aurora, Elgin, Joliet, Naperville, Hinsdale, Waukegan, and Chicago ready to serve you and your family.

“One thing I have to remind people of, and almost on a daily basis, is that we’re typically not dealing with the actual person who caused an injury. We’re dealing with their insurance company, not them personally. That’s what this whole thing is really about. Whether it’s a car accident or slip and fall, people are covered by insurance policies intended to protect against this kind of loss. The insurance company accepts premiums for this protection, but their business model requires that they pay out as little as possible for claims.”

“So I learned what the game was, and I learned how to level the playing field for individuals having to face off against big, well-funded insurance companies. That’s why I basically fell in love with this work. It’s about making the insurance companies do the right thing – realizing that it’s a matter of fairness.”
