Comprehensive Personal Injury Services in Cook County

  • Auto accidents- An auto accident can be caused by several negligent parties including negligent drivers and bad road design.
  • Trucking accidents- The injuries sustained from a trucking accident are often severe. We help clients obtain compensation for serious injuries, or even the wrongful death of a loved one.
  • Defective property- Property owners have the duty to maintain and secure their property. We help people in cases of premises liability where a dangerous property has caused an injury. Our firm pursues compensation for people who have been injured in slip and falls resulting from improper maintenance and building code violations.
  • Defective products- We help people who are injured by unsafe or poorly made automobile equipment. Cars have functions that offer drivers and passengers safety features when they work properly. However, when auto defects such as an air bag that fails to deploy or defective brakes cause injury, we hold manufacturers accountable. We also represent people who are injured in defective elevators. If a counter weight or pulley system breaks, people can be seriously injured when the elevator falls. We also help people who have been injured in trips and falls while getting off an elevator. This occurs when an elevator does not stop level with the floor, creating a hazard for people getting on and off.
  • FELA (Federal Employers' Liability Act) - We help railroad workers who have been injured while working on the railroad. FELA includes laws that protect railroaders who have been injured on the job. We represent switchmen, brakemen, conductors, engineers, and other railroaders who are injured on the job. We pursue compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
  • Maritime law and Jones' Act claims- Our firm pursues compensation for seamen, longshoremen, captains, and harbor workers who are injured while working on the water. If you are injured at work, you are entitled to maintenance, cure, and other compensation.
