Giving Victims The Respect And Attention They Deserve
Our Chicago-based team of personal injury attorneys handle matters throughout Illinois and beyond. We are often called upon to handle catastrophic or complex matters such as aviation disasters, explosions, traumatic brain injuries, product liability, trucking accidents, medical malpractice, and workplace accidents. Most families have never been through this experience before, but we have on countless occasions.
Rapoport, Weisberg & Sims P.C. is also well-known on the national stage for its expertise in handling high-profile aviation cases. Our firm has been representing the victims of aviation crashes and their families for over 30 years.
Outside of the courtroom, our attorneys continuously work as advocates for the general public, pressing for safer regulations for workers on the jobsite, safer regulations for passengers on airplanes, and safer designs for medical devices used on hospital patients. Our commitment to safety has brought numerous issues to the forefront of discussions amongst both public officials and corporate decision makers in the boardroom. Many of those discussions have led directly to positive changes that protect consumers and the general public from dangerous products or work practices.
