As Chicago personal injury attorneys, we initially began our practice defending Chicago Police officers in all matters that they needed defending. Since our law firm is led by a former member of the CPD, the Cook County Prosecutor’s Office and the In-House Counsel for the FOP it made a lot of sense. It turns out that a lot of police officers also get injured, and we soon found our practice fighting many personal injury cases and winning. This led to referral cases from officers’ relatives and friends and before long, we were earning very favorable settlements and awards for them as well. Before we knew it, we were some of the most highly sought after personal injury attorneys in Chicago.

We represent police officers and other Chicagoans who have been injured as the result of someone else’s negligence. Our attorneys fight for the rights of law enforcement officers and their families whether they’ve been injured on the job or off.
Like other injured Chicago residents, police and other emergency responders have the right to bring an individual civil damage claim against a party who injures them. The law even allows officers to bring such a claim against their own employer for injuries the employer caused.
Our attorneys serve the needs of injured victims in cases involving:
Our law firm understands that injured officers have unique losses and concerns. Work restrictions, lost overtime, retirement and other benefits, off-duty assignments, fitness-for-duty and safety concerns, injury aggravation from ordinary work duties, permanent injury, and loss of seniority can wreak havoc on an officer’s future.
Officers can file an individual claim for duty-related injuries just like they can when injured off the job. Police and other law enforcement officers have the right to bring an individual civil damages claim against any party whose wrongful acts or negligence injures them. The law even allows officers to bring such a claim against their own employer for injuries the employer caused.
