Illinois Injury Attorney Protects Seniors & Victims of Accidents

Dedicated Illinois lawyer represents victims of nursing home abuse, medical malpractice & motor vehicle accidents

When entrusting your loved one to caregivers, you expect that their health and happiness will be in capable hands. For some, this is not the case, and the consequences can be devastating. If your family member has suffered from abuse, neglect or medical errors at a nursing home, a knowledgeable personal injury attorney can help you pursue claims against the responsible parties and obtain due compensation. At Southern Injury Law in Carbondale & O'Fallon, we have worked to achieve justice for seniors nationwide since 2011. We provide experienced, attentive representation with the goal of helping clients overcome distressing situations and resolve matters effectively.

In unison with our Nursing Home Advocacy efforts, we also fight for those injured in auto, truck or motorcycle accidents throughout Illinois. An accident can affect your life forever, and we can help you prepare for life's changes by holding the responsible parties (and insurance companies) accountable. You don't pay a thing, unless we win your case!

Reputable Illinois law firm provides services to injured nursing home residents

Our firm concentrates on personal injury law, from nursing home litigation to motor vehicle accidents. We take cases in the following categories:

  • Nursing home abuseNursing homes sometimes do not meet basic standards of care, leaving residents vulnerable to neglect, abuse and resulting problems such as repeated falls, malnutrition and dehydration. This harmful behavior can lead to severe injuries and, in some cases, even death. If someone close to you is at risk or has already been hurt, we can help you understand your options.
  • Personal Injury — A serious personal injury can drastically affect your health, your job, your family and your future. If you have suffered an injury because of somebody else’s negligence, an experienced and responsive personal injury attorney can work to ease your burden.
  • Motor Vehicle Accidents — We understand that the physical pain, disability, mounting medical bills and lost wages resulting from an auto accident can have devastating and life-changing consequences for victims and their families.
  • Medical malpractice — Negligent acts during healthcare procedures can result in severe or fatal health consequences for nursing home residents. We are committed to effectively representing elderly victims of medical malpractice and their families.
  • Wrongful Death — The unexpected loss of a family member is even more tragic when their death is caused by someone else’s careless, negligent or deliberately malicious behavior. Our attentive attorneys at Southern Injury Law aim to ease the devastation suffered by victims' loved ones.

We advise our clients with skill, experience and dedication to achieving successful and meaningful resolutions.
