At Hurley McKenna & Mertz, P.C. we have a long history of getting extraordinary results for our clients. Hospitals, doctors, and other health care providers have a duty to use reasonable care in providing medical services. When they don’t, it is legal negligence, also known as medical malpractice, and innocent patients can suffer, both economically and emotionally.
Bringing a lawsuit against a doctor or a hospital does not mean you are against the medical profession, it means that you need help with the economic and personal losses created by their negligence. The law entitles you to fair compensation when your life has been changed by negligent medical care. Call HM&M at 312-553-4900 or contact us online for a free consultation. We will get you answers.

Accidents, injuries, and even death caused by the negligence of others is all too common. You have the right to seek damages if you have been physically or emotionally harmed due to the recklessness of another person.

At HM&M, our experienced attorneys assist clients with the following matters:
Nursing Home Neglect - Nursing home abuse and neglect come in many different forms. HM&M has successfully represented hundreds of injured nursing home residents who have suffered from the development of bedsores (decubitus ulcers), muscle contractures of the extremities, malnutrition, falls, medication errors, and sexual and physical abuse. We have also represented many families whose loved one has wrongfully died in a nursing home due to abuse and neglect.
Sexual Abuse - Where sexual abuse is involved, too often large institutions such as the church and the Boy Scouts have chosen to protect their reputations at the expense of innocent children. Victims of child sexual abuse often suffer for a lifetime, blaming themselves for the criminal behavior of another. Many victims are unaware that the organizations they trusted knew about the abuser, did nothing to stop him and in some cases covered it up.
Product Liability - When you buy a product you have the right to expect it to be safe. Unfortunately, the market is full of dangerous products such as defective medical devices, drugs, automobiles, airplanes and foods. The law allows you to recover for personal injury, pain and suffering, medical bills and lost wages that are caused by unsafe products.
Construction Accidents - Construction-related injuries can have many causes. Falls, dropped equipment, overloaded cranes, overhead power lines, scaffolding, motor vehicles, and use of heavy equipment are among the most common causes of injury. Other dangers such as carbon monoxide, confined spaces, and trench cave-ins can also cause serious and even fatal injuries. An experienced lawyer knows how to investigate your case properly and preserve the evidence you need to win.

Before starting our firm, Chris Hurley practiced law at Baker & McKenzie, the largest law firm in the country. While there he worked with many well-respected lawyers and represented major hospitals, corporations, and insurance companies. Chris realized, however, that he wanted to use his talents as a trial lawyer to help people on the other side—those without the power of big corporations—who have been wrongfully injured. So in 1992 he founded his own personal injury firm, now known as Hurley McKenna & Mertz, P.C.
