Medical Malpractice Lawyer

When we seek medical attention from a healthcare provider, we expect to be treated with a standard of care that promotes our wellbeing. However, when a nurse, doctor, or another medical professional does not uphold this established standard, the consequences can be far-reaching and life-threatening.

If you have been injured or lost a loved one due to medical malpractice, with Adesina Law Firm, you have legal options. A Chicago medical malpractice lawyer can assess the details of your situation, launch an investigation, and advise you on a method of pursuing financial recovery.

All medical professionals are held to a high standard of care when making the decision to treat patients. Anything less than that standard could qualify as negligence.

We Handle All Medical Malpractice Cases

Regardless of how your medical malpractice injury occurred, we will investigate your case, determine who was liable, and fight for compensation.

We can help you win money for injuries caused by:

Surgical Errors

If your surgeon made a mistake out of negligence that caused you to unduly suffer during a procedure, we can hold them liable for damages and help you recover compensation. We may also be able to pursue funds from the facility where the operation was performed.

Birth Injuries

According to the University of Rochester, some situations are more prone to causing birth injuries than others. Still, not taking measures to promote the safety of a mother and child could constitute negligence. Birth injuries can lead to a lifetime of difficulties for both the parents and the injured child. If you or your child was injured during labor or childbirth, we will investigate and determine if a member of your attending medical staff was liable.

Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis

The speed and accuracy of a diagnosis can determine the likelihood of a full and fast recovery. When a doctor misdiagnoses an ailment or fails to diagnose it correctly, they may be guilty of malpractice.

Dangerous Drugs

If you took a drug that was prescribed by your doctor and suffered adverse effects, we can investigate to determine if the doctor failed in their due diligence before writing the prescription. Your doctor may have prescribed the wrong dose or failed to take into consideration a contraindication with another medicine.

Your Case Must be Built on Negligence

For your medical malpractice case to be successful, your Chicago medical malpractice lawyer must establish four elements:

Duty of Care

We must show that the responsible party (or parties) owed you a specific duty of care. This duty exists between all doctors and their patients, and it extends both to their staff members and to the medical facility that employs the doctor.

Breach of Duty of Care

We must demonstrate that the responsible party (or parties) breached their duty of care to you. To show this, we must provide evidence to prove how the responsible party acted negligently. One of the ways we can accomplish this is by consulting with another medical professional to gain further insight into your situation and what went wrong.


We must show how the responsible party’s actions directly contributed to your injuries. How we can accomplish this goal varies on the details of your situation and the injuries you suffered.


Finally, we will lay out, in dollar amounts, the economic and non-economic damages you incurred as a result of the responsible party’s (or parties) negligent actions.

We Can Help You Recover Compensation

At Adesina Law Firm we are determined to guide you through the financial recovery process. While we will strive for an out-of-court settlement, if we cannot reach a fair settlement offer from the involved parties, then we have the option of filing a lawsuit and taking your case to court.

We believe that you should not have to incur any out-of-pocket expenses due to the negligence of a healthcare provider. Our legal team can review your medical bills, lost wages, and other costs to assign an accurate value to your case. From there, we can approach the other party with a figure that represents the extent of your financial and emotional damages.

Should your case be successful, regardless of what route it takes, you may be able to receive compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages, including the cost of benefits, tips, and bonuses
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • The cost of physical therapy or mental health counseling
  • Pain and suffering and inconvenience
  • Emotional trauma

You may be seeking coverage for damages that we have not listed here. If so, you should share with your Chicago medical malpractice lawyer what losses you are hoping to recover through the negotiation process.

Workers’ Compensation Lawyer

If you were injured at work, you may be eligible for compensation to cover your lost wages, medical bills, and other expenses. Under the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act, employers must provide workers’ compensation insurance to their employees. If you get hurt on the job, you may file a claim, no matter the circumstances of your injury. Unfortunately, workers’ compensation claims get denied all the time which should not be. Adesina Law Firm can help you fight a denial and collect a financial recovery.

At Adesina Law Firm our lawyers help injured workers fight to get their claims approved so they can start rebuilding their lives. In addition, we can investigate your claim to determine whether any negligent parties were directly responsible for your losses. If so, we can pursue them in a private civil action, which can open up additional avenues of compensation.

Our legal team works on a contingency fee basis, meaning that we do not get paid our attorney’s fees unless your case is successful.

Your Work Injury Compensation

If you are successfully able to receive workers’ compensation benefits, you may be able to recover the cost of various items.

This could include:

  • The reasonable cost of your medical bills
  • The cost of rehabilitation
  • Lost wages
  • Reduced earning capacity

During the course of your legal team’s investigation, they may discover that your injuries resulted from another party’s negligence. For example, if you were working as a mechanic, and a tool you were using malfunctioned and injured you, you could have the basis of a product liability claim.

If this aspect is relevant in your case, through a civil action, you could recover the cost of:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering and inconvenience
  • Emotional trauma
  • Disability

The compensable damages in your case will rest upon the details of your situation.

Work Injuries Eligible for Compensation

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), in 2018, over 110,000 nonfatal injuries and illnesses affected Illinois’ workers. Not all of these workers had traditionally dangerous occupations. Sometimes, even office jobs result in work-related injuries that require medical care and force employees to spend time away from their jobs.

No matter what type of work injury you suffered, you have legal options. The worker’s compensation lawyers at Adesina Law Firm, PC can help you file a workers’ compensation claim and collect money to cover your medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses.

We have helped injured workers recover compensation for the following types of work injuries:

Construction Site Injuries

Construction sites can be minefields of potential injuries. No matter how careful you are or how diligently you perform your job, the danger of injury is ever-present. We can help you file a workers’ compensation claim and get paid for your construction site injury.

Auto Accidents

If you are required to drive as part of your job, an auto accident on the clock is considered a work injury, and you are eligible for workers’ compensation. If your employer disputes your eligibility, we can advocate on your behalf and help you get your claim approved.

Manual Labor and Lifting

If you got hurt doing any type of lifting or manual labor on the job (even if you do not have a traditionally labor-intensive job), you could still qualify for workers’ compensation benefits. Our legal team can review the details of your situation and determine a course of action that suits your case.

Repetitive Stress Injuries

Repetitive stress injuries, according to Healthline, are caused by repetitive motions. They are present in office work, particularly among employees who type, file, make copies, or perform other tasks dozens of times per day. These injuries are every bit as legitimate as manual labor injuries, and we can help you get compensated for them.

Slip and Fall Injuries

If you slipped and fell on the job, we can help you recover compensation, whether you were performing a job-related duty at the time of your fall or otherwise.

Other Workplace Injuries

We want to hear from you no matter how your workplace injury occurred.

Fighting Against Your Claim’s Denial

While most workers’ compensation claims are handled without getting into the weeds of legal action, sometimes, employers deny these claims.

For your employer to deny your claim, they must be able to show one of two things:

Alcohol or Drug Intoxication

An employer may deny a workers’ compensation claim if evidence shows the employee was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of their injury. However, the burden is on the employer to prove that the worker was intoxicated.

Gross Recklessness

An employer may also deny a workers’ compensation claim by showing that the injured worker exhibited gross recklessness when they got hurt. Gross recklessness does not mean carelessness or simple negligence; it means the worker was doing something clearly and obviously dangerous without regard for the consequences.

We will push back against any claims made by your employer that you were intoxicated or grossly negligent at the time of your injury.

Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Motorcyclists are not afforded the same level of safety that those traveling in passenger vehicles receive. Without the protective body of a car to absorb impact, motorcyclists have different risk factors and patterns in motorcycle injuries, according to a study published in the journal of Accident Analysis & Prevention. If you or a loved one were involved in an accident while riding a motorcycle, you may be eligible to seek financial recovery.

Motorcyclists have a 34-fold higher risk of injuries than those traveling in other vehicles, resulting in prolonged recovery periods, missed time off work, and life-altering complications.

You do not have to go through the legal process alone. At Adesina Law Firm we provide exemplary service for survivors of motorcycle accidents. When you work with us, you can expect that Adesina Law Firm, PC will thoroughly examine your case, including its cause, liability, and resulting damages.

When your accident occurred may affect how long you have to act under the state’s statute of limitations. Failing to move forward within this window may affect your ability to seek compensation.

We Will Prove the Negligent Party is At-Fault

How your accident occurred will be the starting point of assigning liability to the at-fault driver.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported that the following risky driving behaviors were contributing factors in all types of vehicular accidents:

  • Distracted driving
  • Fatigued driving
  • Driving under the influence of drugs, alcohol
  • Speeding

Environmental hazards and vehicular malfunction may also play a part in causing accidents.

You may not see the reason for your collision listed here. However, when we meet with you and learn about your situation, we can examine the details of your testimony to determine your accident’s cause. For example, we may be able to make the argument that the responsible driver was too tired to be driving if they were driving for a long period of time or if your accident occurred late at night.

If you were hit by a young motorist, we may be able to argue that inexperience contributed to your injuries. If we cannot pinpoint a certain action or behavior that contributed to your accident, we may be able to establish human error as a probable cause.

After we have established liability, Adesina Law Firm, PC can begin the process of pursuing the other party’s insurance company for your damages. Remember: every detail of your case is important. No matter how your accident occurred, we want to hear about every detail of the events before the collision.

What You Need to Know About the Services We Provide

Your financial recovery is our main priority. We perform a vast array of services that are designed to promote each case’s chance of success, either out of court or before a judge.

With your best interests in mind, we can provide the following services:

  • Initiating prompt legal action to fall before the state’s statute of limitations expires

  • Collecting items that support your damages, including medical bills, and photographic evidence of the accident scene

Our goal is to do what we can to help you put this challenging time behind you. Motorcyclists have protections under the law, and we are dedicated to making sure that you receive fair benefits. Do not hesitate to reach out to Adesina Law Firm, PC today.

We Work on a Contingency Basis

To minimize your financial risk when working with us, our team operates on a contingency basis. At the beginning of our partnership, we will draw up a contract that outlines our expectations, services, and methods of payment. When you work with us, we only get paid if your case comes to a successful conclusion.

From there, we take a predetermined portion of your settlement to cover our rendered services. The agreed-upon percentage will be clearly outlined in our contract agreement and is only implemented upon your explicit approval.

The Illinois Statute of Limitations May Limit How Long You Have to Take Action

Illinois has a statute of limitations of up to two years for personal injury victims under 735 ILCS 5/13-202. However, certain elements may play a role in extending or limiting this timeframe, including:

  • When your accident occurred
  • What date you filed your claim
  • When your injuries were treated or diagnosed
  • The ages of those involved in the collision

A legal professional can examine the details of your situation and determine how the state’s laws apply to your case. We recommend that you speak with one of our representatives promptly, as building a successful case takes time. We want to give your case the attention it deserves without being pressured by the clock.

Motorists must adopt safe driving practices to uphold their duty of care, meaning that they should not recklessly endanger others while driving. A negligent driver should be held responsible for your damages.

Truck Accident Lawyer

Adesina Law Firm wants to help anyone who was injured or harmed in a Chicago truck accident. Tractor-trailer trucks and 18-wheelers pose a great risk to other drivers on the road and must be operated with great care. Drivers of these heavy vehicles need to be vigilant and dependable. If they are not, they can inflict severe injuries on other motorists.

If you or a loved one were injured in a truck accident in Chicago, let our team fight for fair compensation on your behalf.

We Want to Help You Determine How Your Accident Occurred

The negligent driver who harmed you could have been recklessly driving or may have struck you due to other circumstances. Your Chicago truck accident lawyer can devote themselves to determining the cause of your accident and identifying any responsible parties.

Some reasons the negligent party may have harmed you can include:

  • Texting while driving
  • Intoxicated driving (due to alcohol or drugs)
  • Reckless driving (road rage, swerving, etc.)
  • Encouragement from management to drive longer hours without resting
  • Vehicular malfunction, such as faulty brakes or steering system

As for figuring out who to pursue financial recovery, Adesina Law Firm can analyze the evidence available in your case to establish liability. Depending on the circumstances of your situation, we may be able to identify multiple roles in your collision. These can include the individual motorist, their employer, or the company that manufactured the truck.

Types of Damages You Could Recover

The physical injuries you suffered in your accident are not the only loss for which you may be able to collect damages.

Some forms of compensation a Chicago truck accident lawyer could pursue on your behalf could cover:

  • Pain and suffering and inconvenience

  • Additional medical expenses (such as physical therapy, follow-up doctor appointments, and assistive devices)
  • Any psychological therapy you may require
  • Transportation costs to and from doctor’s appointments

A Chicago Truck Accident Lawyer Can Help You Prove Liability

When pursuing damages from the responsible party, you will be required to prove that said party was, in fact, liable for your injuries and losses.

You will have to do this by proving that:

  • The other driver owed you a duty of care
  • The other driver violated this duty
  • The violation resulted in or contributed to your injuries
  • Your injuries caused you financial losses

Requirements of this kind can feel daunting when you are trying to recover from your injuries and rebuild your life. Adesina Law Firm, PC can stand by your side during this process and take on the task of proving liability in your accident. They can even represent you in court if negotiations with the responsible party’s insurance company result in a wrongfully denied claim or a settlement that is too low to cover all your losses.

Vehicle Accident Lawyer

A car accident can leave you with painful injuries and heavy anxiety about the economic consequences you are suddenly facing. Medical bills start streaming in and stacking up, demanding to be paid, with no consideration for the fact that you have missed days at work while you recover from your injuries.

If another party’s negligence caused your car accident and injuries, you should not be stuck with these bills. The Chicago car accident lawyers at Adesina Law Firm can fight the insurance company for your right to recover damages and, if necessary, file a lawsuit against the negligent party. We will champion your right to receive compensation in a civil court.

Types of Car Accident Cases We Represent

Car accidents happen as a result of any combination of multiple behaviors and conditions. We handle every type of car accident case, regardless of the cause, including those resulting from:

  • Drunk driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Defective car parts
  • Failure to yield right of way
  • Road construction
  • Poor road conditions
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Tailgating
  • Incorrect turns
  • Driving too fast
  • Not obeying traffic laws
  • Debris on the road
  • Aggressive driving

A Chicago car accident lawyer and the rest of our legal team are ready to make sure that justice is served, and you receive the compensation you deserve.

Investigating Your Chicago Car Accident

The car accident lawyers at Adesina Law Firm, PC will build your claim on a sturdy foundation of compelling evidence. We will collect this evidence as a product of our private investigation of your accident. Some of the steps we will take in this investigative effort include:

  • Visiting the scene of the accident
  • Gathering and documenting photos and videos
  • Talking to witnesses and recording their testimonies
  • Obtaining a copy of the police accident report
  • Requesting and reviewing all your medical records related to the accident
  • Acquiring wage and benefit statements from your employer
  • Seeking written opinions from various experts about the economic impact of your injuries

The evidence we assemble will serve to convince the insurer, judge, or jury of the validity of your claim.

Identifying the Liable Party for Your Damages From a Chicago Car Accident

As the next step in crafting your case, our legal team will need to establish, in legal terms, that the party we have identified as being at fault for your accident was also negligent. To prove negligence in a court of law, your Chicago car accident lawyer will set out to fulfill the legal criteria often referred to as the duty of care.

Duty of care is typically defined by these four elements:

  • The defendant had a responsibility to behave in such a way to prevent you from being injured.
  • The defendant failed to fulfill their responsibility to you.
  • The defendant’s violation of their responsibility caused the accident that resulted in your injury.
  • You suffered physical and/or emotional injury that led to your economic damages that should be recovered.

Again, we will tap into the evidence we gather in our investigation of your accident to support each of our duty of care arguments.

Identifying and Calculating the Damages We Will Seek to Recover

Some people who try to settle their claims directly with insurance companies tend to underestimate the value of their claims. They scratch only the surface of the broad range of losses they can recover and end up leaving a lot of money on the table.

On the other hand, Adesina Law Firm, PC will dig deep to uncover all the ways in which your accident and injuries have and will impact you, both with economic losses and in intangible ways.

Although every case is different, some of the damages we may seek to recover in your car accident case include:

  • Costs of surgery (past, present, and future)
  • Cost of medical treatment and care (past, present, future, and ongoing)
  • Emergency transportation
  • Physical rehabilitation
  • Hospitalization
  • Prescription medicines, including pain management
  • Lost income and benefits (past, present, and future)
  • Diminished future potential earnings
  • Pain and suffering
  • Diminished quality of life
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of consortium
  • Assistive mobility devices
  • Replacement services (childcare, lawn care, housekeeping, cooking, etc.)

This information will come from the evidence we gather in our investigation, as well as from expert opinions we obtain from respected members of the fields of economics, medicine, vocational therapy, and life-care planning services. We will leave no stone unturned when it comes to itemizing the ways in which you have suffered because of the defendant’s negligence.
