personal injury

Phil has handled an array of personal injury cases throughout the last 31 years. Some cases can be settled fairly and expeditiously. However, when settlement is not possible, he will aggressively litigate your case at trial. There are no out-of-pocket expenses to retain our firm to handle the case. There are also no fees with regard to personal injury cases unless the client wins.

workers compensation

For serious injuries, it is important to hire an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer to assist you in receiving a large recovery for the damages and injuries caused. If your employer retaliates or fails to provide you with proper benefits, we will fight them in the Illinois Workers' Compensation Division or move forward with a civil wrongful discharge claim. There are no fees with regard to workers’ compensation cases unless the client wins. To find out if you have a case, give us a call for a free consultation.
