Auto Accidents

   Robert J. Dargis has extensive experience in all types of motor vehicle accidents. I promptly and thoroughly investigate each case to assess liability and determine fault. I work with experienced investigators to obtain photographs, witness statements and other necessary investigation. I have an excellent understanding of the intricacies of Illinois Liability Law as well as Underinsurance and Uninsured Motorist Coverage issues.

I work on all types of car crashes, including truck wrecks, motorcycle collisions, pedestrian collisions, and bicycle accidents. My detailed preparation in investigating often helps persuade insurance carriers and corporate representatives that it is in their best interest to settle a claim rather than have powerful evidence presented to a jury. I have handled hundreds of cases involving motor vehicle accidents, including accidents resulting from defective auto products. Serious car accidents may involve brain damage, spinal cord injuries, amputations and long-term disability. In my experience, insurance companies use a number of measures to reduce or minimize claim settlements and payments. As a result, many car accident injury victims have little choice but to go to court to recover compensation proportional to the actual cost of their injuries.In the event that  I am unable to obtain a settlement I am prepared and ready to represent my client’s interests in courts throughout the State of Illinois.


Wrongful Death

   I provide aggressive representation for those who have lost loved ones due to the negligence of others. I handle wrongful death claims against property owners, medical providers, drivers, and their insurance companies. Each loss is unique and extremely painful for the surviving family members. I understand that nothing can replace a father, mother or child. However, survivors of wrongful death have specific rights in Illinois, and I will work tirelessly to secure the maximum financial recovery allowed by Illinois law. I have secured settlements throughout Illinois for families who have lost loved ones. I seek to the maximum damages allowed for my clients.


Medical Malpractice

  • Every year over 1.3 million people are injured due to medication errors.
  • Every year up to 98,000 people may die in hospitals from medical errors.

Medical malpractice is the act in which a doctor, surgeon, or other licensed healthcare provider acts negligently, causing injury or death in a patient. Patients expect a timely diagnosis of a medical problem along with proper treatment. In some cases a delay in diagnosis may have serious consequences to the patient and may affect their quality of life. If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of a medical error or medical negligence Robert J. Dargis immediately.

   Doctors and other medical staff are professionals and respected by the community. It is their duty to safely and correctly treat patients with the individual’s best interest and health in mind. Some types of medical malpractice may be: Delay in diagnosis, anesthesia error, improper consent before a medical procedure, surgical error, failure to diagnose a medical condition, improper treatment of an illness or disease, and individual who owns the premisprescription drug error. In the state of Illinois, medical malpractice victims have a limited amount of time in which to file a medical malpractice claim. Certain medical malpractice situations have different time frames, so consult an attorney as soon as possible. Medical malpractice is considered an epidemic that continues to spread in the United States today. Here are some basic U.S. medical malpractice statistics:

  • Every year there are more deaths as a result of medical errors than AIDS.

Slip and Fall Injuries Robert J. Dargis stands ready to assist you through the complex maze of premises liability laws and issues related to slip and fall accidents. A slip and fall injury is by no means the only kind of premises negligence case a premises liability lawyer handles. Premises liability lawsuits may stem from unsafe or dangerous conditions on the premises, defects in the construction of the premises or inadequate maintenance of the premises where an injury or accident occurs. A slip and fall injury often occurs due to dangerous conditions of the premises and the negligence of the property owner to repair and or warn of the defect where the injury occurs. The property owner has a duty to use reasonable care to maintain the premises in a safe condition and a duty to use reasonable care to learn of the existence of any dangerous or unsafe conditions on his premises that could cause harm to anyone. The property owner also has a duty to warn of concealed perils that he knows about or should know about through the exercise of reasonable care. It is important to have a qualified lawyer on your side to protect you. Contact us today by email or phone.
