In a recent newsletter, we highlighted that one of our values is standing up for the vulnerable. Our specializations reflect this:

Negligence committed by a medical professional, that does not meet a generally accepted standard of care, often results in injury or death. It can be made by a medical professional during diagnosis, treatment or surgery, or something the medical professional should have done, but neglected to do.


We trust nursing homes to care for our loved ones when they can no longer care for themselves Unfortunately, some nursing home residents suffer at the hands of the people who are supposed to care for them or other residents. Nursing home neglect can have very serious physical and emotional effects for residents, and even lead to death.


Foster care families have a right to know a child’s full history and background before agreeing to take that child in. Every child deserves a loving and supportive home, but some children have a history of behavioral or other issues that a family is not ready to handle. When parents are not informed and something happens, family members can get hurt.


Adopted children can suddenly find themselves in a chaotic, abusive environment, instead of being adopted by a loving, supportive family. Other times, adoptive parents are the victims when they are abused by a child with severe emotional or psychological issues. When backgrounds aren’t properly checked and disclosed on both the adopting and adopted parties all could get hurt or be at risk of serious injury themselves.


Accidents that lead to personal injury cases can happen fast in Chicago. Your immediate goals after being involved in an accident are to receive prompt medical treatment, to get your bills paid, make sure you do not suffer financially through lost wages, and make sure your insurance company will process your claim in a timely basis. Our firm’s passionate legal advocates represent clients injured in a variety of accidents.

At Deratany & Kosner, we want to give you the justice you deserve. If you or a loved one have been a victim in any of the above areas, contact us today at 800-529-7285 to schedule a free consultation.
