- Amputation Accident
Amputation injuries are permanent injuries that will likely result in lifelong disability. An amputation, by definition, is the loss of a body part, usually a finger, hand, or arm, or a toe, foot, or leg. Traumatic amputation injuries occur when the limb is wholly or partially severed in an accident. Amputation can also be surgically performed when a limb cannot be saved due to serious injuries. Victims of traumatic amputation are at risk for serious complications, including bleeding, infection, shock, and death.
- Dog Bites
Anyone who has been bitten by a dog may experience physical injuries requiring physical rehabilitation, surgery, post-traumatic stress disorder and emotional problems. Over 43,000 facial injuries a year are the result of dog attacks – many of which necessitate medical attention. If the dog has a disease such as rabies, then you run a high risk of suffering from it, as well.
Blindness injuries are expensive, both immediately after the accident which caused the blindness and possibly for the rest of the victim’s life. Medical bills will likely be extensive. If you are unable to work due to a blindness injury, you may be eligible for compensation for lost wages and loss of future earning capacity. To maximize your compensation, we work with highly qualified experts to determine your future medical and financial needs as a result of your blindness injury.

More than 1 million Americans suffer from burns every year, with many of those ending in death. Pain associated with burn injuries can be excruciating, and victims are often left with physical and emotional scars. Beyond that, the costs involved with burn treatment can be overwhelming; burns can require years of hospitalization, doctor checkups, and physical therapy.

- Medical Malpractice
The Chicago medical malpractice attorneys of Willens Law Offices, P.C. understand the field of medicine is very complicated and constantly progressing. Therefore, health care professionals must be well trained in their areas of practice, have adequate experience in making diagnoses and administering treatments, and maintain up-to-date knowledge of new drugs and techniques. These expectations set a duty of care that medical professionals are to follow, as they usually do.
- Birth Injury
Having a child is one of the most joyous and rewarding occasions of a parent’s life. However, this day can take a turn for the worst when you learn that your newborn suffered a birth injury during or just after delivery. While not every injury caused during child birth is due to the medical malpractice or the negligence of a health care professional, when there are complications in the process of pregnancy or labor and delivery, the result can be a variety of complications for the newborn baby and/or the mother.
- Brachial Plexus Injury
Brachial plexus injuries, (also known as brachial plexus palsy, Erb’s Palsy and Klumpke’s Palsy) can sometimes occur during child birth. Brachial Plexus injuries during child birth are almost always associated with the occurrence of “shoulder dystocia”. Shoulder dystocia occurs when one of the baby’s shoulders (although on rare occasion it can be both) becomes lodged up against the mother’s pubic bone during delivery.
- Delayed Diagnosis
Diagnosis errors can be devastating in the cases of aggressive illnesses and severe injuries. It is a medical professional’s duty to have the knowledge and skills necessary to accurately and timely diagnose and properly treat his patients’ medical conditions.

We put a lot of faith and trust in our health care providers to accurately diagnose our medical conditions and treat them properly.

When you visit a medical professional with a problem, you expect to receive a correct diagnosis and the proper treatment. Because the proper diagnosis is the first step in the recovery process, it is imperative that the medical professional accurately analyzes your condition so you can receive proper care. A missed diagnosis or failed diagnosis can result in the wrong treatment, a delay in treatment or worse.
- Surgical Errors
The thought of having any type of surgery can be highly stressful. However, the thought of positive results from the surgery calms and reassures patients.

- Asbestos Exposure
Asbestos is the name given to a group of naturally occurring minerals that occur as bundles of fibers. When materials containing asbestos are disturbed, they can release tiny asbestos fibers which are then inhaled into the lungs. People who are exposed to asbestos can contract mesothelioma, also known as “asbestos cancer” which is a rare form of cancer found in the lining of the heart, lungs, abdomen, or the internal reproductive organs
Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer. “Mesothelioma” is the term used to describe a cancerous tumor which involves the mesothelioma cells of an organ, usually the lungs, heart or abdominal organs. The most common type of mesothelioma is pleural mesothelioma. The pleura is a thin membrane found between the lungs and the chest cavity. It provides a lubricated surface so that the lungs do not chafe against the chest walls. Thus, a pleural mesothelioma is often referred to as a “lung” cancer. Another form of mesothelioma is peritoneal mesotheliomas. The peritoneum is the membrane that encloses the organs of the abdomen.
- Boating Accident
Like most accidents, boating accidents are preventable. Many boat accidents involve alcohol use, and many fatalities can be prevented if boaters use life jackets or other flotation devices. The majority of boating fatalities are from drowning. Careless operation, reckless operation, operator inattention and operator inexperience are top contributors to boating injuries and deaths.
- Construction Accident
Every year there are thousands of construction accidents which cause serious personal injury and even wrongful death. Employers, site owners, architects, insurance companies and manufacturers of equipment can all be held responsible for inadequate safety provisions when a construction site accident occurs. In addition, the general contractor and all subcontractors are also required to provide a reasonably safe site, to warn of hazards, to hire careful employees, to coordinate job safety and to supervise safety compliance.
