Personal Injury

We represent people who have been seriously injured and the families of people killed as a result of the negligent or wrongful conduct of others. We do not represent insurance companies against injured people. We have proven experience right here in the Rockford and Northern and Central Illinois areas, so, when someone is injured here, there is no need to go out of town for quality representation. In fact, since we know the local insurance adjusters, defense attorneys and judges, you may lose a potential advantage if you go out of town for representation.

We have successfully prosecuted cases throughout Northern and Central Illinois, including Cook, Winnebago, JoDaviess, Stephenson, Boone, McHenry, Whiteside, DeKalb, Lee, Ogle, Carroll, Kane DuPage, Lake, LaSalle, Peoria and McLean Counties. We have represented over three thousand injured people over the years.

Our firm understands how insurance companies and lawyers on the other side think. Insurance companies are interested in minimizing their economic exposure when a serious injury or death has occurred. They hire attorneys whose job it is to aggressively undermine each aspect of your claim. We know their tactics. That’s why we prepare each case as if it will proceed to trial. In this way, we ensure that we have assembled the strongest and most persuasive evidence possible to maximize your recovery. By doing this, we believe we actually decrease the chance that each case will go to trial, by showing the insurance companies the overwhelming strength of each case. This also helps shorten the amount of time it takes to resolve each case.

If, however, an insurance company refuses to fairly compensate our client, we will not hesitate to take a case to a jury verdict if that is what is necessary to produce the best possible result. We have earned a reputation as a firm that takes a high number of cases to trial by refusing to accept anything less than a fair recovery for our injured clients. So insurance companies know not to take us lightly.

We represent individuals injured in all types of situations, including transportation injuries (cars, tractor trailers (also known as semis or big rigs), trucks, motorcycles, bicycles and pedestrian injuries), injuries due to defective products, railroad injuries, construction injuries, fall downs (slip and falls)and animal attacks. If you have sustained such an injury, contact us now for a free consultation. Time limits apply, so do not delay.
