I found Adam after searching reviews for someone to represent me after an accident. I met with him and decided on his law firm. I mainly worked with Jeremy Lee. He always kept me up to date, answered all my questions. He worked hard for me and was very happy with the outcome. If you’re looking for a lawyer I would highly recommend Zayad Law firm.

  • Medical Malpractice

    Medical malpractice is a term used to describe conduct that deviates from the applicable standard of care. A standard of care is a generally a minimum level of care that should be exercised by a health care provider.

  • Wrongful Death

    When someone is killed due to the negligent conduct of another, the heirs will have the right to file an accidental death lawsuit. Illinois law allows a cause of action to be brought on behalf of family members of the deceased. The pain and suffering caused by a wrongful death is often difficult, even unbearable, and it can take years for a family to recover from the loss.

They may have missed significant amounts of work. In the event of a catastrophic injury, they may have even lost their life.

  • Truck Accidents

    Truck accidents can inflict untold catastrophe upon the life of an individual and his or her family. In the event of a truck accident, a personal injury attorney will be able to help victims recover for: pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of earnings, loss of earning capacity, medical bills (present and future) and disability.

  • Car Accidents

    For many people who have been injured in an accident caused by another, they do not even think about trying to get compensation. They do not realize they are entitled to compensation for the replacement of their vehicle and other material damage. They are also entitled to compensation for other things that they have lost, including lost wages, medical bills, future medical bills, pain and suffering or loss of enjoyment of life.

  • Premises Liability

    When someone is involved in an accident and suffers a personal injury, they feel as though they have been wronged. They may have undergone significant discomfort, inconvenience, and injury. They may have missed significant amounts of work. In the event of a catastrophic injury, they may have even lost their life.

  • Construction Accidents

    Construction accidents can lead to some of the most devastating injuries. This is not only because of the exposure that workers have to extremely dangerous environments but because workers frequently have families who are dependent on them for support. We have significant experience when it comes to guiding clients in the aftermath of construction injuries.
