[ultimate_heading main_heading=”Nursing Home Neglect & Abuse” el_class=”white”][/ultimate_heading]

Nursing home residents are often injured by the people entrusted with the care of our frail or elderly loved ones. If your family member suffered from nursing home neglect or abuse, you know that residents often do not have the resiliency to spring back from an injury.

[ultimate_heading main_heading=”Medical Malpractice” el_class=”white”][/ultimate_heading]

We are proud to be recognized for our outstanding work representing victims of medical malpractice. A review published in the Jury Verdict Reporter named our firm as one of law firms to try five or more cases to verdict in venues outside of Cook County between 2002 and 2007.

[ultimate_heading main_heading=”Motor Vehicle Crashes” el_class=”white”][/ultimate_heading]

Our personal injury attorneys file motor vehicle injury claims on behalf of people who were seriously injured in all types of car and truck crashes. We also represent the family members of those who suffered a wrongful death in a fatal accident.

[ultimate_heading main_heading=”Wrongful Death” el_class=”white”][/ultimate_heading]

A fatal accident can occur anywhere. Our experienced lawyers have the experience and the resources to counsel and represent families who have lost loved ones due to medical malpractice, a car accident, a trucking accident, dangerous products, and toxic exposure.

[ultimate_heading main_heading=”Construction Injuries” el_class=”white”][/ultimate_heading]

If you or a coworker or family member has been seriously injured in a construction accident, you may have been told to file a workers compensation claim to be reimbursed for lost wages, unpaid medical bills, and any temporary or permanent disability.

[ultimate_heading main_heading=”Personal Injury” el_class=”white”][/ultimate_heading]

Every day people are seriously injured through no fault of their own. If you have been seriously injured because someone else was careless, reckless, or negligent, you have a right to seek financial compensation for all the damages caused by the accident.

The attorneys of Walsh, Knippen & Cetina, Chartered, are well-known and respected for the results we have achieved for clients throughout Illinois. We work with individuals involved in extremely challenging and complex cases including personal injury, wrongful death, and medical malpractice claims. We have also obtained significant verdicts and settlements in cases involving business disputes and commercial litigation.

A Selective Approach to Best Serve You
We are not a high-volume law firm. Instead, we limit the number of cases we accept so that we can provide the highest quality and most sophisticated legal representation possible. This selective approach allows us to give each case and each client the full benefit of our legal experience and personal attention. Our attorneys have tried to verdict more than 350 jury and non-jury cases lasting three days to six weeks, each. This is more cases than most attorneys will try in a lifetime. Our reputation as effective trial lawyers often motivates opponents to agree to reasonable settlements outside of the courtroom.
