Chicago Personal Injury Lawyers
Illinois Attorneys For Medical Malpractice Injuries
If you have been injured due to medical malpractice, you need trial lawyers who have dedicated their careers to representing victims of negligent medical care. At HM&M we have a long history of getting extraordinary results for our clients.
Hospitals, doctors and other health care providers have a duty to use reasonable care in providing medical services. When they do not it is legal negligence, also known as medical malpractice, and innocent patients can suffer, both economically and emotionally.
Bringing a lawsuit against a doctor or a hospital does not mean you are against the medical profession, it means that you need help with the economic and personal losses created by their negligence. The law entitles you to fair compensation when your life has been changed by negligent medical care.

Chicago Sexual Abuse Lawyers
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.
Read the Archdiocese of Chicago Secret Files. The Archdiocese of Chicago has released “documents relating to the sexual misconduct of thirty priests of the Archdiocese.” We have made them available for you to read. Click here to read the files on each priest.
Victims of child sexual abuse often suffer for a lifetime, blaming themselves for the criminal behavior of another. If you or a loved one has been the victim of sexual abuse, you may be entitled to compensation.
HM&M has the experience and resources necessary to get justice from the large and powerful institutions that too often failed to prevent or stop the abuse. Even if the abuse took place years ago, the law can permit you to seek damages from those institutions.

Chicago Product Liability Attorneys
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.
A defective product is one that either has a flawed design and/or was not manufactured properly. The end result is that the consumer is put at serious risk of harm or injury when using the product. There are times when the injuries caused by the product are immediate, while other times they are not realized for many years. Proving negligence in product liability cases can be quite difficult and requires a thorough investigation to gather all the evidence and get to the truth.
