When you are hurt, you need help. I am Valerie Leopold, a Chicago lawyer who has successfully obtained millions of dollars in recoveries for those injured by medical malpractice and motor vehicle accidents.
If you or a loved one has suffered because of another person's reckless or negligent behavior, contact me online or call (312) 781-6212. We will discuss your legal options during a free consultation.
Helping You Through a Difficult Time
I have been a Chicago personal injury attorney for more than 30 years, and I know how to protect your rights. After an injury, you need money to pay for current and future medical bills and to compensate you for lost earnings and income. Besides these monetary damages, you are entitled to compensation for pain, suffering, disfigurement and disability.
When one person is injured, another has to become the care provider, taking on many extra tasks and responsibilities. With a death, the entire family is affected forever. I became a lawyer to help these people.
Assisting Victims of Medical Malpractice
When you or a loved one is injured due to the negligence of a doctor, a lawyer can help hold that individual responsible for his or her negligence. I will investigate your claims and strive to recover compensation for you after your medical injury.
If you have lost a loved one due to medical malpractice, it is even more important to consult with an attorney. By bringing a wrongful death claim, you can prevent injuries like this from happening to other families.
Guidance After a Car Accident in Chicago
Car accidents are far too common in the Chicago area. If you have been hit by another driver and are now injured, I can work with you to help recover money for all of your damages. You can rely on me for guidance after any car crash throughout the city.
What to Expect at Leopold & Associates
At Leopold & Associates, we begin by personally meeting with you in a free consultation to go over what happened in detail. It is important to discuss your case with a lawyer as soon as possible so that your memory is fresh and important evidence is not lost.
We may want to get copies of your medical records or police report before anything is changed or lost. We may need to take photographs of recent injuries before healing begins or pictures of an accident scene before skid marks disappear or conditions change. Similarly, it may be important for us to find and locate important witnesses for your case. We interview nurses and fellow patients in medical malpractice cases and other drivers in car accident claims. Delay may make these things harder and sometimes impossible.
In our meeting, I will answer your questions and explain the law and standards of care that apply to your situation. We will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of your case and what needs to be done.
I focus my Chicago personal injury practice on medical malpractice, accidental death, and personal injury accidents including pedestrian, truck and car accidents.
