Areas Of Success
Our lawyers have successfully handled all types of injury and accident matters throughout Illinois, included but not limited to those involving:
A personal injury claim or lawsuit arises when people are injured by the careless or intentional acts of others. When someone is legally responsible for injuring someone else, they are liable for the injury and may be made to compensate the victim.
Every time a driver gets behind the wheel of a motor vehicle, he or she is accepting responsibility for the safety of everyone else on the road. Accidents can and do happen. But if a driver’s negligent behavior or careless actions lead to the personal injury or death of another party, that driver must be held accountable.
Injuries suffered as a result of truck accidents can be severe and sometimes deadly due to the sheer size of many semi trucks and tractor-trailers. As a result, it is important to take action to recover compensation for the harms caused. If you are injured in a truck accident you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, including compensation for lost wages, hospital bills, and pain and suffering.
Wrongful death as a legal term is a death that has been caused by the fault of another person. For example, deaths caused by drunk driving, the manufacturing of a defective or dangerous product, the construction of an unsound structure or building or failing to diagnose a fatal disease may be considered under the law as “wrongful deaths.”
Common injuries include injuries to the neck, back, eyes, broken bones and sometimes even death. These injuries are often suffered from falls, electrocution or being struck by objects. Injuries suffered at construction sites can be severe, life-altering and life-threatening. Special laws are in place to protect the health and safety of construction workers. Unfortunately, quite often these laws are not followed.

Nursing Home Abuse And Neglect
These types of lawsuits commonly involve wandering and elopement, bedsores/pressure ulcers, falls in nursing homes, elder abuse, physical or sexual assault, physical or chemical restraints, malnutrition or dehydration, choking, clogged breathing tubes, burns and other personal injuries that occur in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and by home health care providers.
Medical malpractice claims and lawsuits arise when patients are injured or killed as a result of the careless or intentional acts of a doctor, nurse or other health care provider. These commonly involve medical errors, injuries at birth, surgical errors, pharmacy medication errors, misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose cancer (breast, bladder, lung, ovarian, cervical, pelvic), misread tests or X-rays, HMO misconduct, adverse drug reactions and medical device failure.
Products liability is an area of personal injury law that focuses on dangerous and defective products. Our attorneys represent injured victims throughout Illinois in matters against corporations or manufacturers which have sold or manufactured unsafe products to consumers.
Birth injury litigation comes about when a baby suffers an injury either before birth or during the birthing process because of careless, negligent, or intentional acts on the part of a doctor, nurse, health care provider, hospital, or other medical staff or facility.
