Medical Malpractice Lawyers

When we go to a doctor or hospital, we all expect to receive the highest level of care from our physicians. However, many people are severely injured and sometimes die as a result of mistakes made by doctors. A medical malpractice claim is a claim of medical negligence by a health care provider who fails to follow the accepted standards of practice and care for the relevant procedure. Professional health care providers, which include doctors, nurses, dentists, technicians, hospitals, nursing home facilities and any person or entity that provides medical care, need to be held accountable for the pain and suffering they cause their patients as a result of their negligent treatment. Medical malpractice can also occur through outpatient services or if issues arise with prescription medication.

Workers Compensation Attorneys

Illinois Workers Compensation laws are designed to protect those who suffer work related injuries. Some workplace injuries may even be serious enough to prevent the injured party from working again.

The Illinois Workers Compensation Act provides the following benefits among others: medical care that is reasonably required to cure or relieve the employee of the effects of the injury; temporary total disability benefits to compensate injured employees while they recover; permanent partial disability benefits for employees that are able to work but suffer from a permanent disability or disfigurement; permanent total disability benefits for employees that are rendered permanently unable to work; and death benefits for the families of employees that die as a result of workplace injuries.

Workers Compensation laws are complex, but the attorneys at Fisher & LaMonica have the skills and experience to help you reach the settlement you deserve. We understand that workplace injuries can be devastating and losing the ability to work is incredibly stressful.

It is important to us that our clients be able to return to satisfying and productive lives after their injuries. Contact the attorneys at Fisher & LaMonica to discuss your work related injuries and obtain representation for your Workers Compensation claim.

Chicago Dog Bite Injury Lawyers

Even the friendliest of dogs can attack without provocation. Attacks by dogs and other animals can result in serious injury and even permanent disfigurement. The victims of this type of attack often suffer significant physical and emotional damage. Injuries can include severe lacerations and puncture wounds, nerve damage, broken bones, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Often, the most grievous injuries are inflicted upon children who may then suffer permanent psychological damage. Generally, the owner of the attacking dog or other animal is held liable for the injuries caused by his or her pet. The owner of an attacking animal will be responsible for resulting medical expenses, pain and suffering, and disability.
