- Motorcycle Accidents
Statistics indicate that 80 percent of motorcycle accidents result in serious injuries or death, compared with 20 percent of car accidents.

- Wrongful Death
Wrongful death is a death caused by the misconduct or negligence of a person or entity. Family members of the deceased may sue the responsible party for costs incurred by the death such as funeral expenses and lost wages. The recently passed Illinois Wrongful Death Act also allows damages to be awarded to family members for “grief, sorrow, and mental suffering.” If you think an individual or company is responsible for the death of a loved one, seek the services of an experienced wrongful death attorney immediately.
- Boating Accidents
Over 5,000 recreational boating accidents take place annually in the United States, and as many as 12% results in death. The vast majority of boating accidents are caused by reckless operation or alcohol abuse. Boating accidents, which often result in injuries and property damage, can be very costly. If you have suffered as a result of careless or negligent boat operation, an experienced boat accident attorney can get you the compensation you deserve.

Spinal cord injuries are most often caused by car accidents and falls and range in seriousness from whiplash and herniated disks to injuries that result in permanent paralysis. Some spinal cord injuries require a lifetime of expensive medical care and can prevent the afflicted individual from earning income. If a spinal cord injury is causing you or your family financial hardship, you can still afford the best legal services available, because we take all our personal injury cases on contingency-fee basis.
- Brain Injuries
Brain injuries occur when external trauma or lack of oxygen impairs the normal function of the brain. Almost half of severe brain injuries are the result of a vehicle accident. Of the 250,000 Americans who survive a severe brain injury every year, 99,000 suffer a lasting disability. Brain injury survivors often incur lifetime expenses of more than million dollars, but if someone else is to blame for the injury, the financial burden shouldn’t be yours to bear.

- Medical Malpractice
Mevorah Law Offices devotes considerable time and skill to preparing a medical malpractice case. Such cases typically are challenging to prove, requiring the competence of an experienced lawyer along with the technical expertise of medical professionals. Medical records must be analyzed and evidence gathered to support and prove negligence, which includes arranging witness testimony. The medical practitioner’s behavior will be evaluated against the behavior of similar professionals to determine whether he or she reasonably failed to meet medical standards of care. Your attorney must substantiate that the serious injury resulted from the medical error. While many cases are settled out of court, others go to trial in order to obtain fair and just compensation.

We spare no efforts in using expert medical- and construction-industry experts to substantiate the cause and extent of the injury.

The lawyers at Mevorah Law Offices stand ready to put their years of experience to work on your behalf. Rely on our skills and integrity to provide you with effective legal advice and help you get the compensation you are entitled to receive.
- Pedestrian Accidents

When a vehicle strikes a pedestrian, it can cause serious injury or death. The attorneys of Mevorah Law Offices have experience investigating and litigating cases involving pedestrian accidents. We take a personal interest in each and every case we handle—from investigating the incident to finding the best legal options to get you the compensation you deserve.
- Uninsured / Under-Insured Motorists
If an uninsured or under-insured person is at fault for an accident, you’ll need to recover your entitled compensation from your own insurance policy. Cases involving uninsured or under-insured motorists can be complex and difficult to understand. If the driver at fault has no coverage, or limited coverage, your insurance company should provide at least a minimum amount of compensation to help you recover. Our attorneys have experience in challenging insurance companies to make sure our clients recover their damages. Don’t settle with an insurance company until you’ve spoken to one of our Illinois uninsured or under-insured motorist lawyers.
- Aviation Accidents
When something goes wrong on a commercial airplane, private airplane or helicopter, the consequences can be devastating.

If you’ve been injured on an aircraft, you need an aviation accident attorney who has the skill and expertise to litigate complicated aviation-related cases. Aviation accident cases are very complex and there are major differences in the safety and maintenance regulations of commercial aircraft, private airplanes and helicopters. Our personal injury lawyers have years of experience standing up for the rights of individuals injured in aviation accidents.
- Gas Explosions
The most common gas explosion accidents are due to gas grill malfunctions or defective propane tanks. Even when an individual lights a grill correctly, he or she can still be seriously burned. These malfunctions often occur due to a failure of the company to inspect valves or comply with safety regulations. If the negligence of a natural gas company has caused trauma to you or a loved one, don’t wait. Let our personal injury lawyers start the investigation process today. When you call our office, you’ll speak to a natural gas explosion attorney with a wealth of experience litigating cases involving negligent gas companies.
