Overview: Personal Injury in Southern Illinois

Legal Professionals Guiding You Through Hard Times

At the law firm of Hassakis & Hassakis, P.C., we have been providing client-centered representation to our Southern Illinois clients since 1950. Our attorneys focus on your needs, and we do everything we can to help you get the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Personal Injury Cases

The attorneys at Hassakis & Hassakis, P.C. have successfully handled all types of personal injury cases, including the following:

  • Auto/truck accidents: Auto accidents are by far the most common source of personal injury claims. Accidents are caused by aggressive drivers who are driving at excessive speeds, running red lights or sending text messages while driving. If you’ve been injured by a car, truck or other motor vehicle (while on a bicycle, motorcycle, motor scooter, 3 and 4 wheelers, or as a pedestrian), we can help.
  • Workers’ compensation: If you have been hurt in a workplace accident, your concerns include lost wages, the cost of medical care and possibly even issues of vocational rehabilitation and retraining. The benefits are designed to help you mostly cover your costs associated with the accident so you can move forward with your life. We can help you through the complicated workers’ compensation system to help you get back on your feet.
  • Wrongful death: Are you the spouse, parent or child of a person who died as the result of someone else’s negligence? Do you want to see that justice is served? Do you want compensation for your loss? You have the right to take action, and our law firm can help.
  • Premises liability: Property owners are responsible for safeguarding visitors to their property from hazards. This is true for owners of homes, stores, office buildings, shopping malls and any other type of property. When they fail to fulfill this responsibility, the victim can take action. These actions are referred to as premises liability claims. Our law office is experienced in taking action against negligent property owners/maintainers.
  • Boating accidents: Collisions and incidents in the water are frequent. Our attorneys can help you recover damages resulting from a boating, jet ski and sailing accidents.
  • Product liability: Consumers have the right to expect safety and that they will not be injured by products they are using in compliance with the manufacturer’s instructions. When manufacturers put dangerous or defective products into the hands of consumers, they can be held responsible for the harm that product caused.
  • Social Security Disability: We can help you through the process of filing and appealing claims for social security disability benefits.
  • Nursing home negligence: When individuals suffer abuse or neglect in nursing homes, hospitals or assisted living facilities, they are entitled to compensation. We are dedicated to helping victims of negligence and abuse — whether from nursing home negligence or medical malpractice — obtain the legal assistance and compensation they deserve. We can help you.
  • Medical malpractice: Sometimes doctors make mistakes; but when the doctor’s mistake could have been avoided, and that mistake caused your injury, we can help you recover the compensation you deserve.
  • Railroad accidents: In the United States there is a train collision approximately every 90 minutes. If you have been hit by a train, we have experience in litigating railroad collision cases.
  • Other cases: We also handle personal injury cases involving intentional acts, spousal torts, dram shop liability, and the like. Even if your personal injury case isn’t listed here, we probably have the experience in the area you require.

Formal Administrative Hearings for Driving Relief Before the Secretary of State

We also represent clients who have had their driver’s license suspended or revoked due to excessive violations or related to drug and/or alcohol abuse. If you’ve been charged with a DUI, the State may suspend or revoke your license. We can represent you at formal administrative hearings for driving relief before the Secretary of State in Illinois, fighting to restore your driving privileges.
