Firm Overview

Our Skills, Effort and Resources Mean Maximum Compensation for You

At the Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid, our Illinois personal injury attorneys have decades of experience representing accident victims and their families. We have recovered millions in compensation for our clients. We only represent individuals and families. We do not represent insurance companies or corporations.

Once we accept your case, you can be confident that our lawyers believe in you, believe in your case and are determined to hold the wrongdoer accountable and obtain maximum financial recovery for all of your harms and losses — just as we have done thousands of times before.

How We Beat the Insurance Companies in Personal Injury Cases

We have been successfully obtaining financial recovery for our injured clients and their families for over ten years, and we continue to refine our trial strategies with each case. In representing injured victims of car accidents, medical malpractice, defective product injuries and other events causing injury or wrongful death, we know how to:

Prove that the person or company responsible for your personal injury should be held accountable

Accurately determine the value of your case in light of your harms and losses and compare those losses to jury verdicts and settlements in other comparable cases

We will likely reach a decision point: Should you accept a settlement offer or take your case to a jury trial? We make sure that our clients understand the risks and benefits of any decision regarding settlement, and we rely on all of our resources to adequately inform our clients so that they can make an informed decision that is in their best interest. But when our client says she wants to go to trial, we will already be ready because every case we accept is prepared as if it is going to trial anyway.

Ready for Trial When Negotiations Are Not Enough

We have extensive trial experience that insurance companies and opposing lawyers respect. We understand what juries in cases like yours will be looking for at trial. We understand how to present your case at trial to give you the best chance for maximum financial recovery for your harms and losses. Often times, this requires high-tech media presentations showing precisely how someone's careless actions caused injury, suffering and financial hardship. Other times, a highly regarded expert witness may be necessary at trial. Sometimes, the injured person's own explanation of the events may be the most convincing to the jury. Every case is different.

Our lawyers, at the Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid, also know how to advocate for you and to convince a jury to award you maximum compensation for your damages after a tragic event such as car accident, medical malpractice, a preventable birth injury to your child, defective product injury, construction accident, slip and fall accident, or any other unfortunate accident.

Skilled Legal Representation Without Financial Risk for You

From auto accidents and defective product accidents, to medical malpractice and premises accidents our Chicago-area and Naperville personal injury lawyers represents all clients on a contingency basis. This means you will not pay any attorney fees unless we obtain a settlement or verdict for you.
