Personal Injury & Wrongful Death

When you or a loved one are injured or killed because of the negligence of another, you may have a personal injury or wrongful death action. For more than 50 years, we have represented plaintiffs in a wide range of cases who have been injured or killed:

Since the requirements for filing, pleading, preparing and trying a personal injury or wrongful death case can differ depending on the state or county in which the negligence occurs or where the lawsuit is filed, it is best to consult an attorney that is qualified, experienced, and successful to determine if you have a meritorious case.

The Chicago personal injury lawyers at Corboy & Demetrio have represented hundreds of individuals injured or killed as the result of the negligence of others. Our team of lawyers consists of 17 highly experienced and successful attorneys dedicated exclusively to the evaluation, preparation and trial of personal injury and wrongful death cases.

Our success in representing victims in personal injury and wrongful death cases has been exceptional - we have acquired over $3 billion in settlements and verdicts, of which nearly 600 were in excess of $1 million.
