At Hurley McKenna & Mertz, P.C. we have a long history of getting extraordinary results for our clients.

The law entitles you to fair compensation when your life has been changed by negligent medical care. Call HM&M at 312-553-4900 or contact us online for a free consultation. We will get you answers.

Proper investigation, intimate knowledge of the many different rules and laws, and thorough preparation are the keys to our success on behalf of our clients. Regardless of the cause, you have the right to be fairly compensated when negligent behavior injures you or your family.

Advocates for Those Who Deserve Compensation in Illinois

Accidents, injuries, and even death caused by the negligence of others is all too common. You have the right to seek damages if you have been physically or emotionally harmed due to the recklessness of another person. Our personal injury lawyers have over two decades of experience representing victims of personal injury in Illinois and nationwide. You need a legal professional on your side that is well-versed in the legal tactics practiced by opposing counsel, whether it be a large insurance company or individual party.

At HM&M, our experienced attorneys assist clients with the following matters:

  • Nursing Home Neglect - Nursing home abuse and neglect come in many different forms. HM&M has successfully represented hundreds of injured nursing home residents who have suffered from the development of bedsores (decubitus ulcers), muscle contractures of the extremities, malnutrition, falls, medication errors, and sexual and physical abuse. We have also represented many families whose loved one has wrongfully died in a nursing home due to abuse and neglect.
  • Sexual Abuse - Where sexual abuse is involved, too often large institutions such as the church and the Boy Scouts have chosen to protect their reputations at the expense of innocent children. Victims of child sexual abuse often suffer for a lifetime, blaming themselves for the criminal behavior of another. Many victims are unaware that the organizations they trusted knew about the abuser, did nothing to stop him and in some cases covered it up.
  • Product Liability - When you buy a product you have the right to expect it to be safe. Unfortunately, the market is full of dangerous products such as defective medical devices, drugs, automobiles, airplanes and foods. The law allows you to recover for personal injury, pain and suffering, medical bills and lost wages that are caused by unsafe products.
  • Construction Accidents - Construction-related injuries can have many causes. Falls, dropped equipment, overloaded cranes, overhead power lines, scaffolding, motor vehicles, and use of heavy equipment are among the most common causes of injury. Other dangers such as carbon monoxide, confined spaces, and trench cave-ins can also cause serious and even fatal injuries. An experienced lawyer knows how to investigate your case properly and preserve the evidence you need to win.

HM&M has represented victims of negligence in the Chicago area and across the country for over 20 years. Our legal professionals have obtained successful outcomes for numerous clients. If you or a loved one has been injured in any type of accident, we can help you get your claim started and advise you on your other legal options.
