Frequently Asked Questions About Our Firm And Legal Representation

Our legal team focuses on what matters most – your case. We carefully research your accident, routinely interview witnesses, and consult with experts–including accident reconstructionists and medical doctors.

Deratany & Kosner has been voted among top Illinois law firms for 13 years, and its founding attorney, Jay Paul Deratany, has been voted among top lawyers nationwide. Our firm puts more than 100 years of experience to work for each of our clients and have helped injury victims across Illinois recover more than $400 million dollars.

Deratany & Kosner is one of the most highly respected personal injury law firms in Chicago, as well as nationally. We handle a wide range of legal cases nationwide. Our areas of practice are:

  • Medical Malpractice
  • Nursing Home Negligence
  • Social Services Abuse and Negligence
  • Child Abuse and Neglect
  • Personal Injury

That depends on the circumstances of your case. Factors to consider include the type of abuse or neglect, how long it went on, and the injuries sustained by your loved one. We will also consider the medical expenses for your loved one related to the abuse or neglect, as well as emotional distress and pain and suffering. Once we ensure your loved one is healthy and safe and receiving necessary care, we can help you determine the amount of compensation you can seek for such injuries.

Not necessarily. Many times, we are able to negotiate a favorable settlement with the insurance company. But we are prepared to fight your case in court if that is what it takes. Either way, we will investigate what happened and build the strongest possible case. We will gather the evidence you need to prove there was abuse or neglect. These cases can be complicated and often take time to resolve. But our focus is always on getting the best possible outcome for you and your loved one.

The short answer is you can afford top legal counsel. That is because we work on a contingency fee, which means we get paid a fee only if the case is won, either through a settlement or verdict. Contingency fee lawyers do not charge clients by-the-hour. This fee structure provides a strong incentive for the attorney to win the case on your behalf. If we do not recover compensation, you will not owe us. If we win, you win! There are no hidden fees or strings attached.
