How Our Wheaton Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help
When you suffer a serious personal injury, it can feel like it’s you against the world. On the one hand, you have the demands of work, bills, and life, and on the other, you have insurance companies trying to fill your head with legal jargon in the hope you’ll settle quickly and with minimum hassle.
With all this chaos going on, it’s easy to just give up, take what you’re offered and try to get your life back in order, but if you do that you’ll quickly realize that the money wasn’t quite enough, the stress doesn’t quite go away, and within months you’ll be much worse off than you should be. Our personal injury lawyers in Wheaton can shoulder this burden and help you through the chaos.

- Injuries During Birth
- Surgical Errors
- Missed/Incorrect Diagnosis
The average American will visit a doctor’s surgery or hospital several times in their lifetime and they will be prescribed at least one medication. The US system is one of the best in the world, but it’s also expensive and a for-profit industry like this needs to be held accountable when it makes mistakes.
Medical negligence can turn a patient’s life around, leaving them to deal with debilitating illnesses or physical handicaps, and these can occur during routine examinations and surgeries, as well as common diagnoses. If the medical expert providing your care makes a mistake that costs you physically, mentally, or financially, you can claim.
4 out of 10 workplace injuries are minor strains and sprains, but even these can cause financial stress for the victim. What’s more, there are an average of 170 to 180 workplace fatalities every year in Illinois alone, many of which occur in the construction and manufacturing sector, where employees are tasked with using dangerous machinery and equipment.
Regardless of the type of injury sustained or the ways that this has impacted your life, if you were not at fault, our workplace injury specialists in Wheaton can help.

Wheaton is a small city, with fewer than 11.5 square miles holding less than 55,000 people. However, it suffers a disproportionate number of traffic accidents, in line with the huge number of crashes that occur every year in Illinois. In 2017, 6 people were involved in fatal car accidents on the roads of Wheaton, and thousands more were involved in crashes of some kind.
Many of these crashes are minor and the people involved are able to climb out their vehicles and walk away unharmed. But some lead to serious, life-changing injuries—burns, lacerations, breaks, brain trauma. If you are involved in an accident like this then our Wheaton personal injury specialists can help you.
This is especially true if someone else was at fault, from drunk drivers to emergency vehicles, uninsured drivers, city buses, and more.
