Personal Injury

No matter where you live or work, an accident can happen anywhere. If you are injured due to someone’s negligence or reckless behavior, you may be very confused and in a lot of pain, but you still have options. You may be able to seek a recovery through a personal injury claim in order to hold the responsible individual accountable and obtain compensation for any damages or losses you experienced. The Cates Law Firm, LLC is experienced in all types of personal injury cases, and is prepared to fight on your behalf for what’s right.

Car Accidents

The majority of car accidents are the result of negligent behaviors such as distracted driving, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, fatigued driving, manufacturer errors, speeding, or the failure to follow traffic laws. If you were hurt in a car accident that was not your fault, you should consult the Waterloo injury lawyers at The Cates Law Firm, LLC immediately. Our firm can help you avoid the financial burden that comes with medical bills, lost wages, and a damaged vehicle by communicating with the liable party’s insurance company to secure fair compensation for your damages.

Aviation Accidents

Although there have been significant advances in the technology used on airplanes and helicopters, mechanical failure, as well as human error, continue to cause aviation accidents. If you were injured or lost a family member in a plane or helicopter crash, you should reach out the Southern Illinois injury lawyers at The Cates Law Firm, LLC. We are well-versed in the state, federal, and international laws that are often involved in aviation litigation and can assist you in obtaining the justice and compensation you deserve.

Product Liability

Most products that you use should not harm you if used properly. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Defective products often come to market and lead to serious injuries that a manufacturer or distributor can be held liable for. If you’ve been harmed by a faulty product, the Southern Illinois injury lawyers at The Cates Law Firm, LLC can file a claim on your behalf.

Through a product liability claim, you may obtain a recovery to help pay for medical bills, loss of current and future wages, disability, loss of enjoyment of life, disfigurement, and pain and suffering. Our firm can assist with a wide range of premises liability cases including those that involve defective medical equipment, defective power tools and machinery, exposure to toxic chemicals, and flawed industrial equipment.

Medical Malpractice

Have you suffered because of the mistake of a physician, surgeon, nurse, or another medical professional? If so, you may be able to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. The Waterloo injury lawyers at The Cates Law Firm, LLC have handled a variety of medical malpractice cases involving misdiagnosis, the failure to diagnose a heart condition or cancer, surgical errors, anesthesia mistakes, birth injuries, and medication errors.

Our attorneys have the experience and resources to prove that a healthcare provider was negligent in providing you with a standard duty of care and is responsible for your injury or the death of your loved one.
