Personal Injury

Personal injury cases involve an injury to an individual. This area of law covers a wide range of accidents and injuries. Our highly experienced attorneys represent clients in personal injury actions including, but not limited, too, those involving motor vehicle accidents, slip/trip and fall accidents (see premises liability), sexual abuse, dog bites, and other areas of personal injury.

Automobile Accidents:

Each year, automobiles cause a multitude of injuries and deaths. Every driver has a responsibility to exercise reasonable care in the ownership and operation of their vehicle, and the failure to do so is called negligence. Our practice represents clients injured in car, train, bus, motorcycle, or truck accidents, including those individuals injured as pedestrians.

Sexual Abuse:

Our attorneys work hard to obtain compensation for victims of sexual abuse including clergy sexual abuse and child molestation. We appreciate the sensitive and personal nature of these cases and the immense pain and suffering that results from abuse. We take steps to keep these cases confidential. We strive hard and have had great success in obtaining fair and just compensation for the pain and suffering, treatment and counseling, and other necessary expenses incurred by our clients as a result of sexual abuse.

Dog Bites & Animal Attacks:

Pet owners have a responsibility to ensure that their pets do not cause harm to others. Illinois law and the Illinois Animal Control Act provide that people who “own” or “harbor” animals are responsible for all damages suffered by the victims of any animal attack as long as the attack was unprovoked. A client who suffers injury from an attack, but no bite, still has legal rights to seek compensation. Our attorneys are well experienced in the litigation of dog bite cases and have achieved great success in resolving these matters to the satisfaction of our clients.

Our attorneys have extensive experience in personal injury cases to help victims and their families receive compensation for their injuries sustained.
