At Healy Scanlon Law Firm, we take the safety of others as a serious concern. This concern shows not only in the types of cases we handle, but also in the things we do when we are not in the courtroom. Our Chicago law firm focuses on serious personal injury cases involving products liability, motor vehicle accidents, construction accidents and nursing home neglect. We are very proud of our results. Our attorneys have obtained numerous multimillion-dollar recoveries for our clients, including several verdicts and settlements over $20 million. Our cases have also helped to get dangerous consumer products off the market and held interstate trucking companies accountable when they put profits ahead of safety.
