Healy Scanlon Law Firm takes the safety of others as a serious concern. This concern shows not only in the types of cases they handle, but also in the things they do when they are not in the courtroom. Healy Scanlon is proud to have obtained over 50 verdicts and settlements in excess of a million dollars. The Chicago law firm focuses on serious personal injury cases involving products liability, motor vehicle accidents, construction accidents and nursing home neglect: their attorneys have obtained numerous multimillion-dollar recoveries for their clients, including several verdicts and settlements over $20 million. Healy Scanlon cases have also helped to remove dangerous consumer products from the market and have held interstate trucking companies accountable when they put profits ahead of safety.
Their Chicago accident attorneys receive great satisfaction in helping injured people recover their lives as fully as possible after a construction, automobile or truck accident and they never represent corporations or insurance companies. Healy Scanlon handles all cases on a contingency fee basis, which means that they charge no fees unless successful in recovering compensation for their clients.
Their firm is small enough to provide personal service to each client, but big enough to take on the largest manufacturers in the country and around the world. Healy Scanlon attorneys have handled auto defect cases against all the major U.S. automakers and most foreign automakers. They are located in downtown Chicago overlooking the Daley Plaza, and the Daley Center, one of the largest litigation centers in the country. There is never a charge to discuss your case with any Healy Scanlon personal injury lawyer. Evening and weekend consultations are available.
