When you visit a healthcare professional, you expect to receive top-notch care that helps you improve your condition, illness, or injury. Unfortunately, errors in diagnosis, treatment, after care or health management can occur and hurt rather than help. These errors may lead to a medical malpractice claim which can hold the healthcare provider responsible for their negligence.
Some examples of medical malpractice include the failure to diagnose or misdiagnose, surgical errors, premature discharge, improper medication or dosage, disregarding patient history, and the failure to recognize symptoms. The Cates Law Firm, LLC has successfully represented countless Monroe County residents in medical malpractice claims against doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals who have caused them harm.
There are many instances when someone has suffered an injury from an accident that arose because of someone’s careless or reckless act.

Our firm is experienced in personal injury cases related to wrongful death, nursing home abuse and neglect, assault and battery, product liability, premises liability, slip and fall accidents, food poisoning, and more.
Car and Truck Accidents
Car and truck accidents happen regularly in Monroe County. If a vehicle collision was caused because of someone’s poor or reckless driving and you have been injured or lost a loved one, you may be entitled to compensation from their insurance provider. Since collaborating with insurance companies can be challenging and low-ball settlements are common, it’s vital to consult skilled Monroe County injury lawyers as soon as the accident has occurred.
Although it is illegal, sexual harassment is seen in a variety of workplaces throughout Monroe County. Workplaces in which sexual harassment is present are typically hostile and uncomfortable for employees to work in on a daily basis. Under Illinois and federal laws, both men and women are protected from sexual harassment at work. If your supervisor or another co-worker requests sexual favors, describes unwelcome sexual advances, or displays any other form of verbal or physical conduct of sexual nature, you should contact one of our Southern Illinois lawyers immediately.
Class action lawsuits are typically filed by a group of individuals who have all been injured and suffered by the same product or company in the same manner. For a class action lawsuit to happen, a court has to determine that the number of those injured or suffering is large enough to make a group proceeding more efficient than trying to handle each case on an individual basis. Product liability, unfair wage, price-fixing, environmental contamination, employment discrimination, and securities fraud are all common areas of law in which The Cates Law Firm, LLC sees class action lawsuits in Monroe County.
