Ankin Law Is Chicago's Injury Law Firm

Our attorneys combine all aspects of injury law to maximize your recovery. Those include injury claims against multiple defendants in motor vehicle accidents, slip and fall accidents, medical malpractice, workers’ compensation, and mass tort law cases.

Our personal injury attorneys help clients throughout Illinois, including Chicago, Arlington Heights, Rockford, Peoria, Orland Park, Peoria, Schaumburg, and Rosemont.


Medical mistakes, like surgical errors, misdiagnoses, delayed diagnoses, medication errors, failure to treat, birth injuries, and defective medical devices cause severe injury and death to countless patients every year.

At Ankin Law, our medical malpractice attorneys will help you recover compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. We will make sure the negligent medical provider is held accountable. And we won’t back down until we win.


Construction accidents, falls from heights, struck-by accidents, explosions, falling objects, transportation accidents, lifting incidents, overexertion, and machinery accidents injure thousands of workers in Chicago every year.

Getting compensated for an Illinois work injury isn’t as easy as filing a workers’ compensation claim. If you suffered injuries at work, give our workers’ compensation attorneys a call. We will help you get full and fair compensation for your losses.

Motor Vehicle

Most car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian and bicycle accidents, rideshare accidents, and multi-car pile-ups are caused by negligent drivers. Speeding, distracted driving, and drunk driving injure or kill hundreds of thousands of people every year.

If you suffered injuries in a motor vehicle accident in Illinois, you may be able to file an injury lawsuit to recover compensation from the at-fault driver, a car or truck manufacturer, or another negligent party. Let the experienced accident lawyers at Ankin law help you win.


Mass torts typically arise when a dangerous product causes injuries to multiple people. They involve dangerous or contaminated medications, foods, and drinks, defective appliances, dangerous equipment, unsafe toys, and other products. Sometimes, injured victims are innocent bystanders who are exposed to hazardous substances like toxic weed killers or asbestos.

If a product manufacturer or large corporation put their profits before your safety, and you were hurt as a result, the mass tort lawyers at Ankin Law can help you sue for damages.

Slip and Fall

Slip and fall accidents are most often caused by slippery or wet floors, cluttered walkways and stairways, missing or loose guardrails, uneven flooring, and unexpected step-downs. These accidents cause traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, penetration injuries, neck injuries, and fractured bones and broken hips.

If you suffered injuries in a slip and fall, our premises liability attorneys will help you file an injury lawsuit against the property owner, business owner, or negligent third party. We will help you recover compensation for your medical expenses, lost income, emotional distress, physical pain, and more.
