What our clients say about us
- The birth of our daughter was supposed to be a joyous occasion. Instead, it was a near death experience. The nurses failed to properly monitor my wife’s blood pressure, which led to her suffering a mild stroke. This resulted in an emergency C-section for which they were unprepared and our baby was deprived of oxygen for more than a minute. Thanks to Lucas and Cardenas we received a just settlement for the nurses’ negligence and were able to move on with our lives and focus on caring for our daughter.Tim and Stephanie Christensen
- My daughter and I were in a head on car collision with a drunk driver a few years ago and it was devastating. I was critically injured and my daughter received a brain injury. After talking with Lucas and Cardenas we decided to move forward with a case again the drunk driver. In the end, we received a settlement even bigger than we anticipated. My daughter still has complications with her speech, but at least now we’ve received justice and have the means to pay for the therapy she’ll likely need for the rest of her life.Carol Parker-FinneyBeverly, IL
- A few years ago the equipment I was operating at work malfunctioned I shattered my ankle. I was in the hospital for a week and then needed 6 months of physical therapy. Even worse, I wasn’t able to walk for five weeks, which meant I couldn’t work either. Lucas and Cardenas made sure I received a fair settlement and helped me when dealing with my insurance. I don’t know what I would have done without them!Peter HolmesPalatine, IL
