Personal Injury

It is a sad reality that accidents can happen almost anywhere. If you have the misfortune of suffering an injury because of someone’s careless or reckless actions, you may not know where to turn, but you have options to make things right. Sometimes a personal injury claim can help ensure the individual at fault or their insurance company provides you with a fair settlement for any damages and losses. Our firm is experienced in several types of personal injury cases, including wrongful death, nursing home abuse and neglect, assault and battery, product liability, premises liability, slip and fall accidents, food poisoning, and more.

Medical Malpractice

Each year, hundreds of thousands of people lose their life because of negligent medical care. If a medical professional makes a mistake or fails to adhere to the appropriate standard of care, there may be an instance of medical malpractice.

Some examples of medical malpractices can arise due to a failure or delay in diagnosing a disease, the misuse of a medical device or prescription drug, a mistake during a surgery, improper treatment for a certain diagnosis, and birth injuries.

For years, The Cates Law Firm, LLC has successfully represented countless clients in medical malpractice cases and helped them obtain compensation for their past and future medical expenses, past and future pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of quality of life, and physical impairment.

Wrongful Death

When you have lost a family member due to someone else’s negligence, you may have a wrongful death claim. Wrongful death can be caused by, among other things, motor vehicle accidents, defective products or devices, and medical malpractice. Although taking legal action won’t bring your loved one back, it can enable you to hold a careless party accountable and recover a settlement for your losses.

At The Cates Law Firm, LLC, our Edwardsville injury lawyers can help you navigate the complex laws surrounding wrongful death claims while providing you with the support you need during this incredibly emotional and tragic time in your life.

Class Actions

Class action lawsuits are appropriate when there are a large number of individuals who have all been wronged or injured by an organization for the same reason. In most cases, only a few individuals will represent the entire group once the class action has been filed. Class action lawsuits typically involve fraud, false advertising, defective products, or wrongful debt collection practices.
