Personal Injury

Being injured in an accident that was not your fault can be a very stressful time. You may be unable to work or enjoy your life as you did previously. You may be suffering from significant and persistent pain. No matter your particular situation, you should not go through this difficult time alone. Speak to a qualified personal injury attorney with The Cates Law Firm, LLC and discuss your options and how you can pursue compensation for any losses or damages you may have incurred.

Car Accidents

If you’ve been injured in a car accident caused by another driver’s reckless actions, you are probably worried about how you will pay for your medical bills, go back to work, and support yourself and your family financially. By consulting the Chester injury attorneys at The Cates Law Firm, LLC, you may be able to recover compensation from the responsible party’s insurance company.

Since insurers are known for initially offering lower settlements to increase their profits, we will negotiate with them on your behalf to ensure that you obtain a full and fair settlement and do not get taken advantage of. When insurance companies don’t cooperate, we take your case to court to ensure you obtain the compensation you are entitled to. Whether you’ve been involved in a rear-end collision, head-on accident, a rollover car crash, side-swipe collision, or any other type of accident, we can help.

Premises Liability

Property owners are legally obligated to maintain their property in order to protect persons legally on their property. If you’ve suffered an injury or lost a loved one due to a property owner’s negligence, you may be able to file a premises liability lawsuit.

The Southern Illinois injury lawyers at The Cates Law Firm, LLC have years of experience in a wide variety of premises liability cases that involve icy sidewalks, inadequate lighting, slips, trips, and falls on slippery or uneven surfaces, construction accidents, inadequate security, swimming pool accidents, defective stairs, falling objects, elevator and escalator injuries, and toxic substances.

We can assist you in recovering compensation from the homeowner, landlord, apartment complex, hospital, hotel, shopping center, grocery store, restaurant, or hospital that is responsible for your injury or loved one’s death.

Employment Law

The Cates Law Firm, LLC specializes in a wide range of cases that involve the relationships between employers and employees. If you were injured while on the job, believe you’ve been discriminated against or harassed in the workplace or were fired for an improper or illegal reason, our Chester injury lawyers can provide you with the legal guidance and representation you need. An employment claim against your employer may make it possible for you to receive compensation to pay for medical expenses, lost wages and benefits, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and the loss of enjoyment of life.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice arises when a medical professional like a doctor, nurse, anesthesiologist, radiologist, or oncologist fails to follow the accepted standard of medical care in their field and injures or takes the life of a patient as a result. It can significantly hinder the quality of the victim’s life and lead to ongoing and future medical care.

If you’ve been a victim of medical malpractice or lost a loved one because of a medical professional’s negligent acts, the Southern Illinois injury lawyers can ensure you are compensated fairly for the tragedy you have gone through.
