Record-Breaking Case Successes in Illinois

We offer the convenience of a suburban-based firm with the resources and experience to handle all phases of injury and death litigation, against even the most sophisticated insurance or corporate interests. Our success against injustice is reflected in the record-setting, multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements we have obtained on behalf of many brave and deserving people. All cases are handled on a contingent fee basis. No money is owed unless and until a recovery is made. We are honored to accept referrals from other attorneys with clients in genuine need of advocacy.

Experience Inside and Outside the Courtroom

In order for personal injury or wrongful death victims to be fully compensated, the lawyer representing them must have a strong track record of successfully trying cases in court. Any lawyer can settle cases and the Internet and Yellow Pages are filled with thousands of them. But full and fair settlements are paid by companies only when your lawyer is willing and able to try the case to verdict. It is only the credible threat of trial that keeps insurance companies honest and makes true justice possible.

At Kinnally Flaherty Krentz Loran & Masur P.C., our attorneys are among the best trial lawyers in Illinois. That recognition allows us to obtain favorable settlements without trial and, in some cases, without litigation. However, if the insurance company fails to do what is right voluntarily, we are ready to pursue justice inside the courtroom. We are soldiers in the struggle for justice. Fighting for you would be our highest honor.

If someone you love has been injured or killed by the negligence of others, you need an aggressive, experienced, and dedicated trial lawyer to fight for you. Our family of lawyers will help your family. We will be your voice until justice is heard. Please contact our personal injury and wrongful death litigation attorneys by calling 630-907-0909 today.

If you or someone close to you has been seriously injured in an auto accident in Illinois, you will need help navigating the complex road to justice. It is important to act quickly in order to preserve evidence and to understand your legal rights. During this financially and emotionally difficult time, insurance companies often take advantage of car accident victims by pressuring them to settle early and cheap, before they have a chance to appreciate the full extent of their injuries or learn the full scope of their rights. Before talking to the insurance company, be sure to speak with an experienced auto accident attorney.

Medical negligence is widespread, deadly and often difficult to identify. Johns Hopkins University reports that diagnostic errors alone are responsible for 80,000 to 160,000 deaths in the United States each year. Despite the prevalence and human toll, medical negligence cases are some of the most difficult to prosecute and to prove. Multiple parties, complex issues and “a conspiracy of silence” contribute to this difficulty. If you or someone you know has been the victim of negligent medical care, it is essential to obtain an experienced and aggressive malpractice attorney. You will not have a chance without one.

Consumers have a right to expect that the products they purchase will be safe as well as functional. Despite a regulatory process designed to improve safety, defective products flood the market every year. Often the danger is not discovered until after the product causes harm. If a dangerous or defective product causes injury or death, you may have a right to a product liability claim.
