A Chicago car accident lawyer will tell you that no matter how the crash happened, you have legal rights if you or a loved one has been injured. Our team jumps into action by getting the police report and figuring out insurance and injury information in car crash cases, moving the cases efficiently to a great outcome for our clients, even if there are some challenges.
Whether you have had a slip and fall or a trip and fall injury at a private residence, or at a business, the key to these cases is speaking with an experienced Chicago fall down lawyer. Believe it nor not, these cases can be much more complicated than a car accident case. The eariler the evidence is assembled, the better your likely outcome. The key is working with a team who knows what they are doing and has a proven track record of success on fall down cases.
If you or a loved one has been hurt at work, then you are very likely covered by a law in Illinois called The Illinois Workers Compensation Act. This law gives you rights, but insurance companies often will deny your benefits unless you get a lawyer involved. Our Chicago injury lawyers have experience handling Workers Comp cases, and make sure you get the benefits you deserve.
A Nursing Home abuse case is often one of the most heartbreaking. Life forces difficult choices on us, and entrusting our loved ones to a place which seems safe but isn’t can be one of life’s most profound betrayals. There are some good nursing homes out there, but many are run in a way that we would rather not know about until the unthinkable happened to our loved one. If you or a loved on has suffered from a serious injury at a nursing home, please call us right away. We can help, and make sure that the matter is handled with professionalism and compassion.
When you are bitten by a dog, the injuries can range from a scratch or small bite all the way up to serious injury, scars and even death, depending on the breed of dog and the age and health of the victim. Yet some dog owners do not take responsibility. An experienced Chicago personal injury attorney will immediately look to who owns the dog and what insurance is in place to cover the loss. The key to dog bite cases is early and aggressive investigation regarding who owns the dog and whether there is any insurance. Call us so we can help you.
These can be some of the most painful, long term and frustrating consequences of a large corporation’s negligence. They can range from temporary whiplash all the way up to the need for serious neck injections, surgery, and can even result in permanent injury and paralysis. And the thing is, at the beginning, a neck injury can seem like it might go away. I tell people who get hurt with a neck injury two things: first, see a doctor; next, talk to a Chicago injury attorney for a free consultation.
Chronic back pain affects everything you do, from sitting, standing, walking, and even sleeping. It truly changes how you do everything in your life. But insurance companies are pros at convincing a Jury that your back injury is no big deal. You deserve an expert on your side to make sure that neither the Insurance Company nor the Jury takes YOUR back injury lightly. After all, chronic back back is one of the most common permanent injuries Americans have.
There is a bias against motorcyce riders, but most motorcyclists are safe, careful drivers, because they know that it is THEIR behind on the lines on the streets and roads of Illinois. Because of this bias, and the serious injuries a motorcyclist can get from even a minor crash, it pays to consult with a Chicago personal injury lawyer right away, because the longer you go unrepresented, the more dirty tricks the insurance industry can play to cheat you out of what you deserve after a crash.
Doctors are not perfect, but when the life of another is in their hands, we cannot give them a pass when they make an obvious mistake that they have been trained and taught to avoid. When a doctor committs negligence, it can have profound consequences on a patient and their entire family. Waiting to talk to a lawyer is the worst thing you could do. Give us a call and let’s talk about it.

The size of a truck make a crash a scary, dangerous thing. Whether its and 18-wheeler or a large pick up or panel truck, the size and weight of these large vehicle means danger for all other motorists on the road when they are not being operated safely. it also means that in the event of a truck crash, your injuries could likely be more serious.

There are more and more bicycle accidents in Chicago than ever before. Bike lanes and other accommodations have brought more people onto two wheels, but other motorists seem to be as oblivious to bicycles legally on the roadway as ever. You have very little protection from a crash on a bike and many people are quick to blame the bicycle rider. Make sure that doesn’t happen to you if you’ve been hurt on a bike.
The human body is not meant to withstand an impact with a car, truck, motorcycle or even bicycle. These are some of the mnost dangerous kinds of crashes of people who are hit in a pedesitran accident. THe injuriesd can sometimes be minor, buit are often quite serious. Educate yourself if you or a loved one has been hurt in a pedestiran injury.
While such injuries have before more accepted, handling cases with these injuries are delicate. The lawyer must balance protecting the client from further harm with having to prove the case. Early preparation is key, and only a Chicago injury lawyer with compassion and experience can give you your best shot. Some Jurors are sure to be skeptical, so you need to put your best foot forward and retain a lawyer in Chicago with the skills to handle this.
The brain is truly the seat of our souls. A blow to the head, or even a violent movement of the body, can cause brain trauma in what is called a ‘coup-counter-coup’ injury. Sometimes, there is very little evidence on MRI, and sometimes, a blow to the head can result in subdural hematoma or a skull fracture. No matter the kind of brain injury your doctor has diagnosed, you need a lawyer who will take it seriously and do the work to prove it for you.

When I was 9 years old, my father, a Truck Driver and a Teamster, was severely hurt at work. He was still a young man at the time. But that injury took everything from him. The injuries to his neck, back and spine were permanent and they changed his life forever. He was never the same.
After being hurt, he hired the wrong personal injury law firm to handle his case. They were rude to him, didn’t explain things, and did not pursue his third party case — leaving money on the table without explaining it to him. His case went on for 17 years, and it ended in a fee dispute with his old personal injury lawyer. The injury lawyer wanted more of my father’s settlement money. (Find out more here.)
We grew up poor, once my Father could no longer work. My father had to wait 17 years for his case to end.
So I worked during high school and put myself through college and law school so that what happened to my family NEVER happens to YOU or YOUR FAMILY. And I have dedicated my personal injury law firm to helping normal people like me, my family, and YOU, and YOUR FAMILY, so victims of personal injury do not get worked over by the legal system, rich insurance companies and lawyers who only think of themselves.
I only represent injured people, NEVER Defense or Insurance companies, and I even take the tougher cases other lawyers turn their noses up at. That’s because I have not just dedicated my injury law firm, but my very life, to representing injured people who otherwise would be acting without the information and help they need after being hurt at work, in a car crash, or no matter how they suffered an injury.
I spend thousands of dollars and dozens of hours every year, (more than any other lawyer I know, and far more than I am required to) flying across the country, learning the latest trial and case strategy techniques with one goal in mind: doing whatever it takes to give you the best legal representation you can find anywhere.
And check out my reviews. My personal injury clients know that I treat everyone with respect and take the time to make sure your concerns are addressed every step of the way after an injury. I am so committed to helping and educating people who have suffered personal injury that I wrote an “Injury Book and DVD“ entitled “The Five Secrets of Injury and Accident Cases” which explains and shows you how personal injury cases work, and I give it away FOR FREE to anyone who wants it, at my expense.
Your fight is my fight. You can count on my team to help you in your time of need. We can help you seek the compensation you deserve. I will fight for your rights.
Contact us 24 hours a day at our toll-free number, 312-500-4500 to get a free DVD and book which explains your rights, or call us to speak with a lawyer right away.
The call is free, the consultation is free, but the peace of mind of having your questions answered is priceless.
