Nolan Law Group is a Chicago personal injury law firm committed to holding responsible parties accountable when serious personal injuries or wrongful deaths occur, seeking justice for victims and their families. We have been dedicated advocates for injured parties for more than three decades, helping them recover the compensation to which they’re entitled under Illinois law.
Understanding Personal Injury Law
Personal injury is a broad area of law that allows an injured person or surviving family members legal remedies in our civil justice system after a devastating accident.
Each citizen has the right to file a civil action, also called tort action, against a person or company that was negligent. Personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits allow the court to provide remedy in the form of monetary compensation if the defendant is found responsible.
When you hire a Chicago injury lawyer from Nolan Law Group, you’ll have a skilled legal team on your side, fighting to help right a wrong and working to ensure the party that harmed you is held accountable.

Injuries to construction workers are often the result of unsafe working conditions. As the son of a union electrician, Don Nolan worked on construction sites to put himself through law school. He saw firsthand how safety measures were ignored and unrealistic deadlines were set in order to keep labor costs down.
Successful prosecution of personal injury and wrongful death claims requires a keen understanding of the industry as well as the law. When workers are injured, insurance companies are quick to blame them first to avoid liability for the construction company, contractor or others who are responsible.
Our clients have immediate concerns about workers’ compensation benefits to make ends meet during recovery and long-term considerations of future medical expenses or the inability to continue working in their trade. Nolan Law Group has been successful in winning compensation for our clients and helping them piece together their lives in the wake of a serious injury or unexpected death.
Motor Vehicle Liability
A motor vehicle accident is the most frequent type of personal injury involving transportation liability due to negligence or reckless behavior. A significant motor vehicle accident can cost all of those involved their health, their livelihood or, worse, the life of a loved one. While accidents do happen, oftentimes, they are avoidable. Nolan Law Group has represented many victims of motor vehicle accidents and won many trials for our clients, giving them the means to provide for their families and futures in the aftermath of a tragic loss or injury.
Premises liability is an area of law in which the person who is in possession of land or premises is held accountable for certain injuries suffered by persons who are present on said premises. It primarily deals with accidents that occur on someone else’s property as a result of negligence or unsafe conditions. Nolan Law Group has represented many people who have been injured while lawfully on another’s property. Nolan Law Group’s attorneys investigate whether defective conditions on the property led to injuries and will determine whether the defect was known by either the owner or the occupier of the property.
Railroad & Federal Employer Liability Act
Our railroads are an integral part of our country’s transportation infrastructure. This intricate rail system transports passengers and freight across the country inexpensively and efficiently. Typically known as one of the safest ways to travel, the railroad system has served our nation reliably for many years. However, the system is beginning to age and derailments are becoming more frequent. Under great financial strain, the railroads’ much needed repairs are being neglected, which may lead to more derailments, more train collisions and more motor vehicle collisions at crossing gates.
Nolan Law Group has a tremendous amount of experience in this area of the law. We have represented many passengers and their surviving families after a tragic railroad accident. In addition, we fight on behalf of federal employees in the railroad industry who are using their rights to file a claim under the Federal Employer Liability Act (FELA).
Our attorneys are knowledgeable about the complex federal regulations governing the rail industry and are well-versed in transportation law. Don Nolan has served as Chairman of the Railroad Law Section of the American Association for Justice (formerly the Association of Trial Lawyers of America). Our years of experience with the Railroad Safety Board, the agency charged with regulating the industry, and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), the agency charged with investigating accidents, gives Nolan Law Group the competitive edge for our clients.
Our attorneys and experts know what to look for and how to construct a winning case.
