Reliable Accident and Injury Attorneys Serving Victims from Chicago’s South Shore
South Shore, home of the likes of Michelle Obama and Kanye West, offers spectacular architecture such as the Saint Philip Neri Roman Catholic Church, along with the lakeshore diversions of Rainbow Beach and the eminently walkable Jackson Park Highlands area. The South Shore Cultural Center alone offers enough to keep an urban explorer busy for days on end.
We enjoy places like South Shore when we feel the need to unwind from a hard day’s work. When it’s time to work, however, we face a more unpleasant reality – life can turn on any one of us at any moment. The possibilities, unfortunately, are nearly endless – a motorcycle crash, a dangerous prescription medication, or a surgeon who is in just a little bit too much of a hurry.
Life is Unfair – But Personal Injury Law Can Restore Justice
Too many serious personal injuries would have been utterly unavoidable, if not for the carelessness or outright recklessness of someone who caused an accident unnecessarily. When you become the victim of a personal injury because of an accident caused by someone else’s misconduct, you have the right to complain – and the right to seek full compensation.
Hands-On Experience is Our Winning Edge
The financial burden of a serious injury can be devastating to an innocent victim. What we do is shift this financial burden where it belongs – to the person who caused the injury, or to the insurance company. This burden includes fair compensation for the pain, suffering, and mental anguish you have endured. Your claim might be worth more than you think!
In our 23 years of practice, we have recovered over $200 million for 20,000 injured victims like you. Ninety-five percent of our clients walk away with compensation, and 95 percent of these end up signing a settlement agreement rather than having to wait for a courtroom verdict. We would like to do that same for you.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
1) What are the main causes of traffic accidents?
Most car accidents are caused by:
- Aggressive or impatient driving
- Vehicle malfunction due to a defective part or improper maintenance
- Texting and driving
2) How do traffic violations affect a car accident claim in Illinois?
If you can prove that the defendant’s violation of a traffic law caused the accident, you have a great advantage. This does not guarantee you victory, however – the defendant can still try to prove that the violation was reasonable under the circumstances.
3) How can I win a dog bite claim?
The Illinois dog bite statute, unlike the dog bite statutes of many other states, contains no “one bite rule.” This means that you can win a dog bite claim even if the dog’s owner was not negligent in any way. Two possible defenses, however, are provocation and trespassing.
4) What are the steps in the settlement process?
The following steps are typical:
- Decide whether to seek settlement rather than (i) abandon your claim or (ii) file a lawsuit immediately.
- Calculate the value of your claim.
- Negotiate your claim.
- Draft and sign a settlement agreement.
- Enforce the settlement in court if necessary.
Our Zero Fee Guarantee
We work on a contingency basis. This means that you only pay us legal fees if you win compensation, and the amount you will owe us will be calculated as a percentage of your compensation. If you win nothing, you will owe us nothing.
