Whether you were injured in a traffic collision, or your loved one was hurt while residing in a nursing home, you may not be sure where to turn. The odds may seem stacked against you.
In a perfect world, you would be able to file a personal injury claim. The negligent party's insurance company would pay for your damages. Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way. Insurance companies have an arsenal of tricks up their sleeve to get out of paying damages owed to you. Furthermore, negligent drivers, property owners, and nursing home staff may deny any wrongdoing.
Without an experienced Chicago attorney on your side, you could end up paying your medical expenses out of your own pocket. Simply hiring an attorney isn't enough, however. You need someone with a proven track record, who will put your needs first.

How our firm can help you
are the most vulnerable road users in the Chicago area. They are often struck by drivers who fail to pay attention or behave recklessly. Some drivers even view bicyclists and pedestrians as a nuisance, rather than people who share the same rights to access the roadway.
Our firm has helped injured bicyclists and pedestrians in the Chicago area pursue justice since 2008. We leave no stone unturned when it comes to investigating collisions and presenting crucial evidence in court.
Our legal practice isn't just limited to bicycle, motor vehicle, and pedestrian collisions. We also represent victims of nursing home abuse and neglect. We often see families devastated by negligent and abusive nursing home staff, infectious disease outbreaks, slip and falls, bedsores, and unsafe facility conditions.
