Our lawyers have successfully handled all types of injury and accident matters throughout Illinois, including but not limited to those involving:

Personal Injury

Personal injury lawsuits arise when people are injured by the careless or intentional acts of others. When someone is determined to be legally responsible for injuring someone else, they are liable for the injury and may be made to compensate the victim.

Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

These types of lawsuits commonly involve wandering and elopement, bed sores/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 healthcare providers.

Medical Malpractice

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 healthcare 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.

Wrongful Death

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 manufacture 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."

Products Liability

Products liability is an area of personal injury law that focuses on dangerous and defective products. Our attorneys represents injured victims throughout Illinois area in matters against corporations or manufacturers who have sold or manufactured unsafe products to consumers.

Car Accidents

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.

Truck Accidents

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.

Birth Injury

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, healthcare provider, hospital, or other medical staff or facility.

Jones Act and Maritime Law

The Jones Act is a law enacted by Congress that provides protection to persons who are injured while working as a member of the crew of a ship or vessel. The Jones Act applies to inland river workers as well as offshore workers who work on a jackup rig, semi-submersible ship or rig, barge, drill ship, tug/towboat, crew boat, drill ship, dredge, floating crane, tanker, cargo ship, fishing vessel, chemical ship, research vessel, construction barge, lay barge, motorized platform, diving vessel, cruise ship, recreational boat or other floating/movable structures.

Construction Accidents

Common injuries include injuries to the neck, back, eyes, broken bones, and sometimes even death. These injuries are often suffered from falls, electrocution, and 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, often times these laws are not followed.
