Cases We Handle
The personal injury attorneys of Spiros Law, P.C. handle a wide range of personal injury cases and other civil lawsuits. We represent clients in central and eastern Illinois in the following types of cases:
- Business Interruption Insurance – Bad weather events or once-in-a-lifetime pandemics can severely stall your business or force you to have to temporarily shut your doors. You can incur significant losses during this time. By filing a business interruption insurance claim with your insurance provider, you may be able to recover some of your losses.
- Medical Malpractice – When a doctor or medical facility responsible for your care makes an error while treating you, you can be severely injured. The healthcare provider may have to compensate you for the injuries you suffered as a result of their malpractice.
- IVF and Fertility Misconduct – While the science of fertility treatments has advanced and medicine has allowed those with reproductive struggles to overcome their challenges to have a child, medical professionals can still make life-threatening and costly mistakes. They can also engage in fraud. If you were harmed by medical malpractice or fraudulent behavior during your IVF or fertility treatments, you could be compensated.
- Car Accidents – If another driver’s negligence caused the car accident you were injured in, you could be entitled to compensation. Similarly, if your car accident was caused by defective parts or poor road conditions, the manufacturer or government entity/property owner could be liable for compensating you.
- Trucking Accidents – Auto accidents involving trucks and tractor-trailers are even more dangerous than those only involving passenger vehicles. Commercial trucks are large vehicles and may weigh up to 80,000 pounds, making their impact in a collision greater. You’re at increased risk of sustaining life-threatening injuries in a truck collision. The truck driver and their employer may be liable for compensating you for your injuries.
- Farming Accidents – Farmers use heavy machinery while working in fluctuating elements outdoors. This could lead to serious accidents. If negligence was the cause of your farming injuries, you may be entitled to compensation from the at-fault party.
- Hunting Accidents – You can be critically injured in a hunting accident due to the negligent actions of other hunters or the owner of the property you’re hunting on. You could also be injured due to a defective weapon, in which case the manufacturer could be liable.
- Construction Accidents – Construction sites are inherently dangerous. Whether you’re a construction worker who was injured by the actions of a third-party contractor or the property owner’s failure to mark a hazardous condition, or a visitor to the site who was injured in some other way, you are entitled to compensation from the negligent party.
- Wrongful Death – There are no words to describe the pain that families experience when they lose a loved one. If someone’s or a company’s negligence was the cause of your loved one’s death, you may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit against them to hold them accountable and receive compensation for your losses.
- Defective Drugs and Devices – Medical and pharmaceutical companies must create safe drugs and devices for medical use. Unfortunately, consumers have been harmed after using dangerous drugs and defective medical devices. The companies that created these drugs and devices may have to compensate you for your injuries.
- Product Liability – Consumers have a minimum expectation that when they use products that they’ve bought as recommended, they won’t be harmed by their use of the product. However, some products can be defective and dangerous, causing consumers to suffer injuries after using the products. The manufacturers of the products can be liable for injured consumers’ losses.
- Premises Liability – If you’re injured while on someone’s property, you may be owed compensation. Property owners are responsible for maintaining safe premises.
- Workers’ Compensation – When you’re injured at work or develop a serious, work-related medical condition, you may not be able to work for an extended period of time. You have the right to obtain worker’s compensation benefits to pay for your medical care and to replace part of your income so that you can continue providing for your financial needs.
Additionally, we represent clients who have suffered burn, brain, and animal bite injuries, as well as broken bones and scarring through no fault of their own.
We also represent victims of the following offenses in civil lawsuits:
