How Sean Burke Law Is Different From Other Law Firms
If you’re injured because someone or some company wasn’t acting safely, the injuries can leave you in pain feeling lonely and frustrated. The person or business that harmed you won’t admit that they did anything wrong. You don’t know which doctors to see to get better. Insurance investigators call asking personal questions and then deny your claim.
If you’re seriously injured, I work to make those worries go away. I deal with the insurance companies for you. I know how to hold wrongdoers responsible. If they refuse to fix your harms and losses, then I AM ready for trial to win the compensation you deserve.
Unlike some law firms that sign up hundreds of cases and treat clients like a number, i work with a small number of seriously injured clients. I give each client personal attention from start to finish.
You will know that i take your case seriously.
Who Sean Helps
I have successfully represented people from all walks of life including: a $1.6 million jury verdict in June, 2016 for an elderly woman who lost the use of her lower leg and foot after knee replacement surgery; a $2.5 million settlement for an elevator mechanic injured on a construction site; recovery for a woman who suffered nerve damage in her hand during a routine CT scan; settlement for a mailman bitten in the jaw by a Great Dane; recovery for a young woman seriously injured by a drunk driver; a settlement worth $3.5 million for a window washer whose leg was amputated after a 30-foot fall and compensation for the adult children of a man who died from a bleeding ulcer that his doctors failed to diagnose. I have also helped numerous patients who have suffered nerve injuries during elbow, back and neck surgery.
I am a trial lawyer with more than 25 years of trial experience. One year after law school, I went to work as a prosecutor for the Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office in Waukegan, IL where I tried felony cases involving drug deliveries, sexual assault and murder. As a prosecutor, I loved trial work and how the job allowed me to help everyday people harmed by serious crimes.
After five years, I left the prosecutor’s office to join a highly-regarded medical malpractice law firm in Chicago. I continued to take cases to trial and I loved how my job allowed me to help everyday people who were seriously harmed by people and companies that didn’t take safety seriously. Three years later, I opened my own law firm. I have worked to help the seriously injured ever since. I have won large verdicts and settlements in difficult cases involving medical malpractice, construction injuries and automobile crashes.
I have received Martindale Hubbell’s AV Preeminent Peer Review Rating, the highest rating available. I have been named an Illinois Super Lawyer each year since 2012. I am a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum. I am an officer in my community’s chapter of Lions Club International. The Lions Club is dedicated to helping the visually impaired and children in need in my community.
