Today, we’re still committed to helping our customers in their time of need.

Our law firm has represented first responders throughout the state of Illinois. Some of our recent success stories include outstanding settlement, verdicts, and awards on behalf of:
Our office is proud to have recently expanded Illinois law to provide benefits available to first responders for accidents that previously were not compensable under the Workers’ Compensation Act. A west suburban police officer suffered a herniated disc in his back while lifting his duty bag at home. Although the department argued that the injury was not compensable because it occurred at home, we successfully argued that lifting the duty bag, even off premises, was a necessity of the job. The department appealed, but the Illinois courts agreed it was a compensable accident, and the case now stands as law. These are only a few of our successes representing police officers, firefighters, paramedics, EMTs, and other first responders who often sacrifice their safety in the name of protecting ours. Each case is unique. Call today for a free consultation regarding your case.
