Our Areas of Practice

Leskera Law Firm is experienced in all types of personal injury cases.  There are two important aspects of every personal injury case: liability and damages.  Liability means that the Defendant was negligent (at fault) and that the negligence caused your injury.  In Illinois, if the injured person is 51% or more at fault that person is barred from recovery of damages.  Damages under Illinois law include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and loss of normal life.  If you have both liability and damages you have a case.  If either is missing, you likely don’t have a case.

The Workers’ Compensation Act provides that accidents that arise out of and in the course of employment are eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits. This generally means that the Act covers injuries that result in whole or in part from the employee’s work.  Most injured employees receive three benefits: medical expenses, pay while off work, and a settlement at the end of the case.  Leskera Law Firm is experienced in handling all issues of a workers’ compensation case.

Most people think the law protects them from any form of employment discrimination.  This is not true.  Employment discrimination is the practice of unfairly treating a person or group of people differently from other people or groups of other people at work, because of their membership in a legally protected category such as race, gender, or age.  The purpose of the Illinois Human Rights Act is to protect workers in Illinois from unlawful discrimination in employment.  Illinois is an employment at will state which means that an employer can fire an employee for any reason as long as the discharge is not based on a protected statue.  An employer can treat you unfairly which does not constitute unlawful discrimination unless the action was based on race, gender, age, or another protected status.
