Personal Injury Accidents and Claims
We represent individuals involved in controversies alleging a wrong or damage to another’s person, rights, reputation, or property resulting from events or activities such as car accidents, defective products, infliction of emotional distress, intentional misconduct, and negligence. Initial consultations are always free and contingency fees are available.
Auto and Boating Accidents—Many personal injuries result from motor vehicle accidents. Accidents may involve negligence on the part of drivers, including drunk driving and reckless behavior. If you are injured in a motor vehicle accident, we can assist you in receiving compensation for your injuries, lost wages, and other damages.
Dog Bite Attacks—Illinois has specific laws governing the care and restraint of domestic pets. If you have been injured by an animal, you may have claims against the pet’s owner. Please contact our firm for assistance and advice.
Medical Malpractice— We regularly represent individuals who have died or suffered extensive injuries resulting from negligence of a hospital, physician, nurse practitioner, or other health care provider. Catastrophic cases may arise from a primary care doctor’s failure to diagnose diseases, such as cancer, or failure to refer patients to an appropriate medical specialist, a baby who dies or is permanently maimed, and patients who are sent home from the emergency room with inadequate treatment. Not every bad result means someone was negligent. Our experience has made us adept at analyzing these cases, simplifying complex medical matters, and identifying and aggressively pursuing legal remedies.
Workers’ Compensation—Our firm represents employees who are injured on the job in claims for lost wages and medical treatment expenses against private industry, federal, state, and local government employers and their workers’ compensation insurers.
Construction Accidents— Owners and general contractors have an obligation to keep the work site safe. If there is an accident, in many cases a worker will be able to bring a claim against the owner or general contractor in addition to a workers’ compensation claim. It is important to consult a firm with expertise in this area of the law to ensure that your rights are fully protected.
Wrongful Death—If you’ve lost a loved one in an accident or as the result of a faulty or defective product or piece of equipment, we can represent your interests against the parties at fault and their insurance companies to seek damages on your behalf.
