We are passionate about winning cases for our clients and dedicated to providing superior client service.

Verdicts and Settlements

Our attorneys pursue even the most difficult personal injury cases, which often result in groundbreaking and precedent-setting results.

Our practice has proven that short-line railroads are covered by FELA, railroad workers who return to work after injury should recover for future lost earning capacity, and employees should be protected from retaliatory action after company ordered medical exams and disciplinary investigations.

In Illinois, we have earned some of the largest worker’s compensation settlements, and recovered from the Illinois Guaranty Fund and other sources when insurance companies went bankrupt.

In Missouri, we sought maximum recovery against the Missouri Second Injury fund to protect our clients’ worker’s compensation claims.

These are only a few ways in which our firm seeks to protect the rights of the injured. To learn more, browse our case results below.
