At Zayed Law Offices, our firm handles catastrophic personal injury cases as a result of another person's negligence. These cases often involve complex legal issues that require the expertise of a skilled personal injury attorney. We have a proven track record of success in handling these types of complex cases and recovering maximum compensation for our clients. Our firm handles various types of personal injury cases including, but not limited to:
Wrongful Death and Catastrophic Injury
Catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases can stem from several types of negligence including: medical malpractice, vehicular negligence, and trucking negligence. These types of cases commonly require extensive treatment, rehabilitation and corrective surgery. Victims are not able to perform many of the activities they once had and their lives are permanently altered. In wrongful death cases, our firm pursues every remedy available to the victim's family.
Motor vehicle accidents are one of the leading causes of injury throughout the United States. In Illinois, there are more than 296,000 motor vehicle collisions reported annually. All of these accidents are preventable. The most common causes of motor vehicle accidents are drunk driving, distracted driving and even drowsy driving.
All motorists owe a duty of reasonable care to others when operating a motor vehicle on Illinois roadways. When a motorist breaches that duty of care, he or she is liable for damages. Our firm helps victims of vehicular negligence seek the justice they deserve and recover compensation they are entitled to.
Every physician in Illinois is required to operate under the standard of care. When a physician deviates from the standard of care, and that breach results in injuries, a physician may be held liable for damages. Examples of medical malpractice include misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of an illness, amputation of the wrong limb(s), and surgical equipment being left inside a patient. Medical malpractice cases are expensive and require the expertise of a skilled medical malpractice attorney to address the various complex legal issues that accompany these type of suits. Our firm has the resources and access to the best medical experts to ensure we successfully resolve your case.
Animal and Dog Attacks
Illinois imposes strict liability for owners of animals that attack innocent victims. Recent statistics show that approximately 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs each year. These attacks can result in severe injuries including permanent disfigurement, broken bones and even death. Dog bite cases pose complex legal issues that require the expertise of a skilled dog bite attorney. Founding attorney Adam J. Zayed set a $255,000 record high award in Will County for a dog bite injury to a minor.
Property owners, store managers and landlords are responsible for keeping their premises safe. When a condition exists on their premises and an individual becomes injured as a result, these parties can be held liable. Our firm has handled numerous complex premises liability cases such as slip and falls on ice/snow and improperly constructed municipal sidewalks.
When a product manufacturer constructs and sells a product, consumers have an expectation that it will not harm them. When manufacturers breach this expectation, they can be held liable. If you have been injured by a defective product, it is in your best interest to contact a skilled defective product attorney that can advocate on your behalf to ensure you obtain the compensation you deserve.
