Client Stories

Husband and Wife Sitting

You helped us have financial security.

When Fred first met John, his cognitive and physical abilities were impaired by Listeria’s attack on his central nervous system. He was just starting to recover from the meningitis. None of that stopped Fred from talking straight up to John, with all the compassion you could imagine. It was an approach that meant a lot to us, especially to John.

Fred is like family now. He’s close to being a brother.

No amount of money can truly compensate for the kind of losses that John suffered, and all the anguish. But the funds Fred obtained for us have become an important part of our financial security. We are grateful for what Fred did for us.

Client Food Poisoning

You showed compassion.

The settlement from my case allows me to live independently after having been forced to rely on others for care.  I can now afford to hire folks to help me with any physical task I cannot do on my own without needing to depend on my parents for financial support to live on my own.

I remember one of the first things Fred said to me on the phone was that he was so sorry this happened. I can’t describe the meaningfulness of that sort of simple, genuine acknowledgment. If I had any doubt that this was the right firm for me, Fred’s comment sealed the deal.

Moreover, I sought experience and the firm provided it. It’s clear from the firm’s history and their handling of food poisoning cases that they have been successful in achieving significant monetary awards to compensate clients devastated by the effects of food-borne illness, particularly the Listeria bacteria. The relatively small size of the firm is a definite plus. You aren’t a “number” and it’s a place that’s very family-oriented.

As important to me as it was to gain a financial settlement, an even greater reward of our food poisoning litigation was holding the food company accountable for selling products tainted with such a dangerous bacteria.

Client Burn Survivor

You helped our family in so many ways. 

We lost everything… but the amount of help we received from Fred and his law firm was incredible. No amount of money can replace what we lost. I went through 15 to 20 surgeries. But I’m still alive and I get to spend the rest of my life with my family and we’re going to be happy the rest of our lives.

Before the case was settled, we had no income. My wife couldn’t go back to work. Fred stepped in and guided us to a bank that loaned us the money we needed. And the law firm was extremely helpful in finding us a new place to live. We were under so much stress and they helped in so many ways.

Answering Your Important Questions

We’re here to help you get to the other side.

We understand that you’re going through the most excruciating time. But we’re here for you. You find the system confusing and don’t want to say anything that will cause a problem. We’ve got you covered.

How do I know if I have a case?

When you contact our law firm, you can request a free consultation with one of our lawyers. He or she will listen to your story and possibly ask for additional information, including medical records.

To have a case, your injuries must have been caused, at least in part, by the negligence of another person or a company. For example, if you were burned when a pipeline exploded, the gas company or another entity would have to be legally responsible.

We’re a small, personal firm that regularly wins against Fortune 500 companies. We’ve successfully represented hundreds of people like you in similar cases over the years.

What about medical bills?

Our lawyers can work with insurance companies and your medical providers to put off payment of medical bills until you get a settlement or win money at trial.

How much is my case worth?

To detemine how much your case is worth, our lawyers need to answer several questions. How badly were you hurt and how are the injuries affecting your life? How long were you unable to work? Who was at fault? Is a company legally responsible?

Your Pritzker Hageman lawyer will work with you to get the information needed to determine how much your case is worth. We handle large cases and have over 60 settlements and verdicts over one million dollars, including a $45 million settlement obtained by attorneys Fred Pritzker and Eric Hageman, who have started a new blog: Explosion Burn Lawyer.

Will my lawyer keep in contact with me?

Yes, your lawyer will guide you through the process and keep you updated on your case. In addition, our lawyers regularly travel to meet with clients.

How long will it take to get compensation?

It depends. In some cases it is months; in some, years. We don’t cut corners to quickly settle a case, but we understand the need to get full compensation as quickly as possible.

Can I lose my right to get compensation from the wrongdoer?

Yes, if you wait too long to go after the wrongdoer, you may lose your right to do so. The law gives an injured person only so long to file a claim, generally one to three years. Waiting to take action can also result in lost or destroyed evidence.

What if my injured family member died?

We are sorry that your loved one has died. We understand that you want answers.

Wrongful death laws provide families with the right to seek answers and get compensation. Our lawyers have used these laws to help families find out what happened and win multimillion-dollar recoveries. Find out if you can sue for wrongful death.

What if my child is injured?

If your minor child is injured, you can take action on your child’s behalf. We have helped many families whose children were harmed in accidents and by defective products, including food.

In a recent case, we won $7.55 million for a child who contracted an E. coli infection and developed hemolytic uremic syndrome, a severe complication that causes kidney failure.

How Much Will Hiring Your Law Firm Cost Me?

Our law firm is not paid unless you win. You do not have to pay any hourly fees, nor do you have to pay any amount of money up front.  The expenses and attorney fees are taken out of the total amount of your settlement or jury verdict.

I need a lawyer to get my bills paid and make sure there’s more than enough money for my future

Most people who suffer a severe injury or love someone who has are worried. And with good reason: there are significant medical expenses, lost income and physical and emotional injuries that may never heal.

We help our clients get the compensation they deserve which includes making wrongdoers pay for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress and all the future harms and losses severely injured people are likely to experience. You should not have to face a life of financial hardship and we’ll do our best to make sure you don’t.

We’ll do everything we can to make sure your medical bills are paid and you’re receiving any wage loss or disability benefits to which you’re entitled. If you’re recovering from severe injuries, the last thing you need to worry about is unpaid medical bills or getting the run-around from an insurance company.

We’ll also make sure you’re receiving all the medical care and equipment you need to get better. For example, if you need a wheel chair or the proper medical device, we’ll help you get them. If you’re not seeing the proper doctors, we’ll help with that too.

In fact, if you’re having any problems at all due to your injuries, we’re there to help and guide you through it. After 40 years and thousands of clients, there’s not very many things we haven’t seen or fixed before.

We’ve represented thousands of clients in some of the biggest and most complicated cases in the United States.

You also want wrongdoers held accountable and face consequences for what they did to you.

We strongly agree. Justice for injured people includes but is not limited to money; it means preventing harm to others and making wrongdoers responsible for their injurious conduct.
