Injury Claims in Chicago

When an unexpected situation occurs, whether an accident, work incident, or when a dangerous product resulted in an injury, illness or loss of life, it is urgent to contact a Chicago personal injury attorney to address the legal matters involved. Injury cases vary widely in degree and what type of settlement, judgment or verdict could be expected. Each case should be carefully evaluated by one of the legal team at Steven J. Morton & Associates Ltd. to determine what types of damages should be sought in a claim or lawsuit. Those who have suffered a catastrophic injury will be facing a future that has many challenges, and their need for financial compensation and the highest quality medical care and treatment is crucial to their health.

Our firm has over 60 years in combined experience, and our years in practice have allowed us to develop powerful resources to bring to our injury cases, such as independent investigators, financial experts, medical experts and others. We carefully prepare each case, with full supporting documentation, and press the insurance company for the liable party to provide our client with compensation that reflects all the damages they have suffered.
