Personal Injury

Personal injury accidents often occur due to the reckless or negligent actions of someone else. This is especially true in cases involving construction actions, car accidents, boating accidents, and fires or explosions. Knowing what to do next can be confusing. Even knowing what your options are might not be clear. That’s why our Chicago personal injury lawyers want to help.

Our dedicated legal team has extensive experience helping injury victims take legal action against the at-fault party and seek the compensation they deserve for medical bills, lost income, and other injury-related expenses. Such expenses can add up fast. That’s why it’s critical that injury victims fully understand their legal rights.

Personal injury claims and lawsuits are civil court cases. In the legal community, these cases are known as tort cases. Building a successful tort claim or lawsuit often takes a tremendous amount of work. Some law firms avoid such tough cases. We thrive on them and have the case results to prove it, including a $52.5 million settlement secured for eight injury victims.

Medical Malpractice

Mistakes made by doctors, nurses and other medical professionals can have serious or life-threatening consequences.

Our experienced Chicago medical malpractice lawyers understand the importance of your legal case. That’s because we have dedicated our careers to fighting for the rights of people injured due to the actions or negligence of medical professionals. When you have our legal team on your side, you can make sure your case gets the attention it deserves.

Our Chicago law firm has secured many sizable settlements and verdicts for victims of medical malpractice, including $25 million on behalf of a woman injured due to medical negligence and $20 million on behalf of a man whose medical condition was misdiagnosed.
