Litigation   

Just as each industry has its unique nuances, so does each area of litigation. From the arcane aspects of admiralty law to the evidentiary rules of workers compensation hearings, we have experience handling complex as well as routine matters. We represent clients in lawsuits involving negligence claims, catastrophic injury claims, commercial litigation, and class actions.

Workers' Compensation

Our workers' compensation attorneys represent businesses and employers throughout Illinois before the Illinois Industrial Commission.  Our philosophy is to quickly evaluate claims, proactively resolve cases when appropriate, and strongly defend other claims when trial is the only option.  In addition, our workers’ compensation attorneys have experience in advising on loss prevention and safety.

Querrey & Harrow represents a wide variety of respondents, including self-insured local and national corporations.  In addition, we have had the privilege of acting as counsel in the area of workers' compensation litigation for a national risk management consulting corporation, as well as serving as counsel for numerous insurance companies, governmental entities, hospitals, and small businesses.

Querrey & Harrow has long been recognized as leader in civil litigation in Illinois.  Our talented workers' compensation attorneys allow us to service all areas of possible exposure to our valuable business partners.  Among the various cases we have handled, our attorneys defended and were successful in the first case of its kind in Illinois when the Industrial Commission and Illinois Appellate Court agreed with our position for Will County that jurors should not be considered employees of the county, making them ineligible to receive workers' compensation benefits.

Transportation

Our transportation attorneys have extensive experience in representing companies in the transportation industry, with particular emphasis on representation of interstate and intrastate trucking companies and mass transit. We directly represent major interstate transportation firms which are self-insured or which retain substantial self-insurance limits. Additionally, we represent many interstate and intrastate trucking companies through several major insurance carriers. We have significant experience in the following areas, among others:

 

Trucking, Buses and Train Accident Litigation


We have represented trucking and transportation companies of all sizes and transit authorities in both the federal and state courts in Illinois in accident cases involving personal injury and wrongful death. The firm's extensive jury trial experience (Querrey & Harrow is perennially one of the leaders among Illinois firms in number of jury trials) and reputation as a trial oriented firm assists the firm in obtaining the best possible results for its clients, whether by verdict or settlement.

 

Transportation Coverage and Contract Issue


Our attorneys are well versed in the reading and interpretation of insurance agreements commonly used in the transportation industry. Additionally, we have a resource in the firm's Insurance Law Practice Group, which has broad based experience in all aspects of insurance coverage practice. Indemnification, lessor-lessee, agency and independent contractor issues are routinely handled by members of this group for transportation and rental/leasing companies alike.

 

Cargo Claims


We are experienced in handling claims for cargo losses and related cargo claims. We have represented major interstate freight carriers and carriers of household goods in connection with cargo claims.

 

Administrative Matters


We advise trucking companies in all aspects of compliance with USDOT safety regulations and hazardous material regulations, and regularly represent companies in administrative challenges to Notices of Proposed Safety Ratings and civil penalty actions. We also represent trucking companies in matters before the Illinois Department of Transportation and the Illinois Commerce Commission.

Subrogation

Our subrogation attorneys help insurers pursue at-fault parties through litigation to make them responsible for their negligent or intentional actions.  We have extensive experience in handling automobile and property claims, product liability issues, and uninsured motorist claims, as well as health insurance subrogation, including ERISA claims. 

Our attorneys deal with claims in Indiana, as well as in central and northern Illinois, and represent national and regional carriers.  Although we strive to achieve settlement prior to litigation, should legal action become necessary, the case is moved forward in a prompt and efficient manner through the courts to effect a speedy trial date or to obtain a judgment.
