Car Accident

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.

Fall Down

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.

Workers Compensation

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.

Nursing Home Injury

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.  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.

Dog Bite

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. Call us so we can help you.

Neck Injury

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.

Back Injury

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.

Motorcycle Crash

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.

Medical Malpractice

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.

Serious Injury and Death

Crippling or killing your loved one is something that is unforgivable to most. Your best bet is to hire a Chicago personal injury attorney with compassion, experience, and the willingness to help you and your family through the trauma of a lifetime.  You do not have to do this by yourself. We can help.

Shoulder Injuries

You never realize how much you use both hands then when you have a shoulder injury.  Not being to lift your arm or use your hand while dressing, working or caring for children introduces you to a new world of frustration.  From torn rotator cuffs to nagging sprains to broken bones, a good Chicago injury lawyer knows how to help you.  Feel free to give us a ring or send an email.

Truck Accidents

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.  Give us a call and let’s talk about it.

Bicycle Accidents

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.

Pedestrian Accidents

Crossing the street seems like such a simple thing.  But we live in the age of cell phones, tablet, texts and social media.  Driver distractions are at an all time high.  if you’ve been hit by a car, talk to a Chicago injury lawyer with the know-how to get things done and to protect your right to fully recover no matter your injuries.  A lawyer who knows what he or she is doing will want to know exactly where the crash happened, and whether it happened at or near a crosswalk, and any traffic lights or signs in the area. Photos help.

Emotional and Psychiatric Injuries

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.

Brain Injury/TBI

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.

All Accident and Injuries

No matter what happened to you, if it is the fault of another and you got hurt, we would welcome the chance to talk to you about it.  You may not even know if you have a case or not.  But leave it to the personal injury lawyer Chicago who has the knowledge to evaluate the case.  It might be you can get hep with those medical bills after all.

If you’ve been hurt, you are fighting against an insurance company, in all likelihood.  They have lawyers on staff.  Shouldn’t YOU at least get the benefit of talking to a lawyer for free who is on YOUR side?  Even if you aren’t ready to speak with a lawyer, I offer a free Injury DVD and Book.  Call my office and I will the DVD and Book out to you, 100% FREE, 100% No Obligation.  Just call 1-888-HURT-318 (1-888-487-8318) and say “I want the Free DVD and Book” and they will ask where to mail it to and we will send it right out, no obligation.

Injury Lawyer Testimonials

I Was 200% Satisfied!

"Mr. DeSalvo took my case even though I brought it to him right before the case was about to expire. He reviewed the case right away and took it to Court.

He is different from other lawyers because he keeps me in touch about my case, tells me what I need to do, and tells me what he is doing on my case. With him handling my case, I felt confident and relaxed.”

Guy Oppedisano Chef

Keeps In Touch With Me.

"A friend of mine referred me to Mr. DeSalvo, and when I spoke with him over the telephone, he seemed like he was very straight up. He kept me informed and gave me his opinion on the case, but he let me make my own decision.

He made me feel very confident about my case. I would refer a friend or family member who needed a lawyer to him.”

Vanisha Jamison Store Manager

"Mr. DeSalvo is a very fair lawyer. When I hired him, my number one concern was the insurance company paying me for the time I lost from work because of my injury. Mr. DeSalvo helped me get the money I deserved.

I would refer a friend or family member to him any time because I like him as a person and a lawyer.
