    We stand up to bullies, trolls, stalkers and companies who don’t take our clients seriously when they are being sexually harassed. Gunderson Law brought a claim for a staff member at a restaurant who’s employees were sexually harassing her. Our client was subject to a hostile and unbearable workplace. She had co-workers who would grab her, use sexual innuendos, and would make here do extra demeaning working just to prove that they were “superior.” Gunderson Law pursued this company and brought the harasser and their enablers to justice.

    We are committed to providing the advocacy you need without the attitude you don’t. If you have found other lawyers to be more about their egos than about your case, talk to Gunderson.

    Did you know that every year nearly 9 million people go to the emergency room due to slip-and-fall accidents? And many those people have family members who love them and depend on their ability to earn a living. In fact, over 25,000 people die as a result of injuries from slip-and-fall accidents every year, and even more suffer debilitating head, spinal, back, leg, and other injuries that lead to exorbitant medical expenses and costly time off from work.

    From poorly-lit parking lots and crumbling walkways to wet floors with no warning signs and loose area rugs, slip-and-fall accidents are waiting to happen all around you. And insurance companies often blame victims so they can settle claims for far less than your injuries warrant. Contact us as soon as something happens to assure you don’t “settle” for less than you deserve.

    In 2011, over 283,000 auto accidents were reported in Illinois, resulting in nearly 85,000 people injured in one year alone. Most car accidents are due to the negligence of a driver — like Distracted Drivers on their phone and Impaired Drivers drunk or on drugs — or due to unsafe road conditions, where a driver is speeding, weather is bad, or if the road has potholes or debris in the way. Even defects in the car, like failing brakes or a blown-out tire, can put you at risk.

    If you or a loved one has been injured — or a loved one killed — in an automobile accident, The Gunderson Law Firm can help. Insurance companies are notorious for paying auto accident victims who have no attorney FAR LESS than those who have representation. Often, once an attorney is hired, victims have received 3 times the amount of an initial offer.

    At the Gunderson Law Firm, we want you to be able to ride your bicycle safely, so we work very hard to defend bicyclists’ rights, and get them compensation when they’re hurt. Being hit by a car is painful and frightening, often rattling riders in a way few who haven’t endured it can understand. Once you entrust your case to us, we will do all in our power to ensure that you see the money you deserve for the other party’s negligence. You can end up with very large medical bills, plus months or years of recovery. You don’t need to be worrying about how to pursue legal action, and with Gunderson, you won’t.

    Personal injury cases also discourage bad behavior. Your legal action helps punish those who act irresponsibly around bicyclists. You don’t need to be frightened to ride your bike. If you have been in a accident, contact us as soon as you can and we’ll start working to build a case for you. And to make the road safer for bicyclists in the process.

    Serious motorcycle riders know — motorcycle accidents can be incredibly traumatic. Lifelong injuries, chronic pain, lost limbs, and death are common, and these accidents are often due to the negligence of other drivers. If you or a loved on were in a motorcycle accident, Gunderson Law can probably help if we can represent you in a lawsuit against the person responsible for the accident.

    If you win such a lawsuit, the other party can be required to compensate you for medical bills, lost wages, funeral costs, and/or punitive damages. Typically, you can sue the other party involved in the accident if he or she ignored road signs, was under the influence of alcohol or drugs, drove recklessly, or was driving distracted, like being on the phone.

    Choose the Gunderson Law Firm to represent you and we will help you gather evidence, file the right paperwork, and prepare for your day in court, where we’ll also be by your side throughout.

    Every year in the U.S., people are injured over a million and a half times by drugs and medical devices, including side effects. Lawsuits have been filed involving thousands of drugs, including Adderall, Botox, Xarelto, Zofran, Fosomax, Zoloft, Viagra, Celebrex, and more, as well as many medical devices. Even a drug that’s approved for use by some may NOT be 100% safe for use by all, so you need to know your legal rights if a drug or medical device adversely affects you.

    Just as essential, if you think you’ve been injured by a drug or medical device, you need legal representation BEFORE you speak with a drug company, retailer, hospital, or even your doctor. The problem may be with the drug or medical device, or it may be the dosage you were given, how a medical device was implanted, or another variable. The Gunderson Law Firm can review all aspects of your case and counsel you step by step, even about what forms or agreements to sign and which ones may prevent you from getting the compensation or care you deserve.

    If you are injured on the job, it is important that you know, (a) your rights, and (b) the best ways to handle workmen’s compensation and personal injury claims. We’re talking about your health, your livelihood, and your employer, so every step must be handled well. For example, do NOT talk with insurance adjusters – they’re not on your side and just want to settle for a minimal amount. Also, workplace injury laws vary from state to state and city to city, so you want an experienced Chicago work accident lawyer, like Mike Gunderson at the Gunderson Law Firm.

    We get it — it’s tough to even talk about pressuring an employer for your fair compensation. But they have legal responsibilities, and many workplace accidents occur due to negligence or lack of adequate safety equipment or procedures. If that’s the case, you need a partner capable of holding employers accountable in effective and appropriate ways. Because it’s not just about you. If you die in a work accident, your family is also entitled to seek compensation for medical and funeral expenses, lost income, and more. We look out for them, too.

    The Gunderson Law Firm supports animal rescue and care programs. However, we do NOT support owners of dogs who have trained their dogs to be dangerously aggressive, but don’t control them when it puts individuals and families at risk of dog bites and other attacks that can cause injuries or death. Illinois is strict about holding dog owners liable for the actions of their dog(s), and people bitten by dogs have the right to compensation for medical costs, lost wages, and pain and anguish.

    People today have also suffered bites, scratches, and worse by unusual animals now kept as pets, from snakes, spiders, pigs, and alligators to ferrets, lizards, armadillos, and pygmy goats. These may not seem threatening, but it’s smart to know your legal — and medical — options if you suddenly find one in your face, your hair, or snapping at your fingers.

    If you or a loved one has been bitten or attacked by a dog or other animal, call or email us today for a free consultation.
