Cook County Personal Injury Attorney

All it takes is one mistake, but if someone else's negligence has caused a serious personal injury to you or someone you love, you will be left searching for answers. You do not want to go through this difficult time without effective legal guidance.

At the Law Offices of Francis J. Discipio, we can help you recover the appropriate compensation. Whether you have been injured in a car accident or on the job in a construction accident, our goal is to maximize your compensation.

After your personal injury, the first thing you should do is contact a doctor and make sure you get the medical attention you need. In the event of an accident, it is truly important to document any injuries and/or information related to the accident. At your earliest possible convenience, take pictures of the following:

  • Any cuts and/or bruising
  • Damage to any vehicles
  • Skid marks
  • Weather conditions
  • Any and all street signs including:
    • speed limits
    • stop lights
    • constructions signs
  • Any other hazards or information that may be helpful to a case

Once your injury has been properly documented, contact us straight away, and we can answer your personal injury claim questions. We have the resources needed to handle a wide range of personal injury claims, including:

  • Wrongful death: Have you lost a loved one due to someone's negligence? We can help your family through this difficult time.
  • Auto accidents: We protect the rights of motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians who have been injured in car accidents.
  • Motorcycle accidents: With such little protection, even small motorcycle accidents can lead to life altering injuries.
  • Truck accidents: There are strict laws governing truckers on the road, and we will make sure they are held accountable for any negligence.
  • Drunk driving accidents: There is no excuse for a drunk driving accident. We will take a stand and protect your rights.
  • Pedestrian accidents: People struck by vehicles can suffer devastating injuries. We can help recover compensation for damages caused by a negligent driver.
  • Bike accidents: We help bicyclists seek compensation for injuries caused by driver negligence, including dooring and failure to yield.
  • Public transportation accidents: We seek maximum compensation for people injured in mass transit accidents, including CTA, Metra and PACE.
  • Construction accidents: If you have been injured in a construction accident, you may be eligible for compensation beyond workers' comp.
  • Premises liability: From negligent security to elevator injuries, we pursue premises liability claims against public and private entities.
  • Slip and fall accidents: All it takes is one slippery floor or uneven walkway to cause a serious accident. We can help you get fair compensation.
  • Dog bites: Pet owners have a responsibility to restrain their animals. You can and should hold them responsible for dog bite injuries.
  • Nursing home abuse: Has your loved one been the victim of neglect or abuse in their nursing home? We can help protect those who need it most.
