Our Personal Injury Practice Areas

At Vinkler Law, we have years of experience in personal injury. Our commitment to personal injury representation shows in our diverse practice areas and depth of expertise. With a long-standing dedication to serving the legal needs of victims of injuries and wrongful death caused by the negligence and wrongful actions of another, our highly skilled team of injury attorneys provides compassionate aggressive advocacy to help you to maximize the compensation and justice you deserve. 

The Vinkler Law legal team continues its outstanding record of success in Chicago and throughout the state of Illinois handling accident and injury cases in the following key areas of personal injury law:

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor or other healthcare provider provides treatment considered to be below the acceptable standard of care to a patient, and, as a result of such treatment, the patient suffers injury or death. 

Birth Injuries

When the negligent actions of hospital staff or doctors cause preventable injury to a new baby or the mother, the law requires that hospitals, doctors and nurses or other care providers who caused the birth injury to provide compensation for the resulting harms and losses.

Brain Injuries

When someone negligently causes a brain injury, whether minor or severe, the law requires the party responsible to provide compensation for past and future medical and life care costs, as well as to make up for the pain, suffering, and disability they have caused.

Construction Accidents

Our construction accident attorneys represent injured workers and their family members in construction accidents and complex construction-related cases, and pursue financial recovery from all parties responsible, whether employers, general contractors, suppliers, business owners, developers, engineers, or product manufacturers.

Truck and Semi-Truck Accidents

Negligence in the operation or maintenance of trucks can cause catastrophic injury and death. When the truck drivers and the companies that employ them fail to follow these rules, the law makes them responsible for compensation for wrongful death or any personal injuries that result.

Sexual Abuse

Whether you are an adult victim of sexual abuse or your child has suffered sexual abuse, holding an abuser accountable by seeking compensation for your injuries, pain, and suffering is an essential step in moving forward.

Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home residents have a legal right to receive the care necessary to ensure they do not suffer abuse, preventable injury, or deterioration in condition. When a preventable injury occurs in a nursing home, the law holds the facility and its owners accountable for the harm and losses.

Product Liability

Product liability law requires that the products that we buy from manufacturers and sellers are suitable for their intended purpose and safe. When these products cause injury, the manufacturers and sellers are responsible for paying compensation for the harms and losses the product has caused.
