The Healy Law Firm - Exceptional Results
Representing clients in products liability, transportation, defective products, medical malpractice and workplace injury cases
Aggressive representation combined with compassionate, personal service are what account for the success of the Healy Law Firm. Dedicated exclusively to helping seriously injured people and their families, our attorneys have the skill, resources and experience to go up against even the biggest multi-billion dollar corporations and their insurance companies to get full and fair compensation for our injured clients. The Healy Law Firm has litigated against and recovered from the big three U.S. automobile manufacturers as well as Japanese and Taiwanese manufacturers.
The Healy Law Firm takes the safety of others, especially children, as a serious concern. For example, Martin Healy, Jr, while President of ITLA, initiated the Bike Helmet Project in Illinois, a program that provides free distribution of bike helmets to children in the Chicago area to help keep them safe when riding bikes. Every year 350,000 children under the age of 15 go to the hospital emergency rooms with bike related injuries. Of those, 130,000 suffer head injuries. Wearing helmets can prevent 80 percent of deaths and 88 percent of brain injuries from bicycle crashes.
Our defective products attorneys are willing to fight and work tirelessly on our clients' behalf. The Healy Law Firm has an established track record for obtaining full value for our clients, obtaining millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements, including some landmark, precedent-setting verdicts that have influenced subsequent personal injury litigation in Illinois. Six of our attorneys have been selected to Super Lawyers® and Rising Stars.
The attorneys at the Healy Law Firm have particular experience representing injured people and the families of those killed in complex cases involving products liability, transportation, interstate trucking, auto and railroad injury, aviation injury, medical malpractice, workplace injuries, workers compensation, construction injury, premises liability and other serious or catastrophic injuries.
