About McHargue & Jones, LLC

Personal Injury & Workers’ Compensation Lawyers in Chicago

Originally named the Law Offices of James P. McHargue, McHargue & Jones, LLC was founded in 2000 with a single purpose in mind. The goal was to apply the law to improve the lives of people who have been injured at work or due to the negligence of others. The members of McHargue & Jones, LLC remain committed to this goal today. We have had the honor of helping thousands of people recover money and benefits related to work injuries, car accidents, dog bites, and many other accidents throughout the state of Illinois.

The attorneys of McHargue & Jones, LLC have represented people who have been severely injured and family members of people who have died from their injuries. These tragic accidents have long-lasting and far-reaching effects on the injured person and their families. We recognize the significant and sensitive issues that our clients must deal with, and we strive to assist them in their recovery.

Although many of the clients of McHargue & Jones, LLC have suffered severe, life-changing injuries, we know that thousands of people are involved in accidents every year which are not as severe. Many law firms are not willing to devote their time or resources to helping these injured people. The attorneys of McHargue & Jones, LLC believe that everyone should have access to legal help for their injuries.

Not all injury cases are equal. Although many cases have clear facts and evidence that support a good settlement or trial award, there are many cases that have difficult or unclear facts that make an injury case more difficult to win. The attorneys of McHargue & Jones, LLC are proud to have the skill and willingness to fight the difficult cases for the benefit of our clients. We have been hired many times by clients who previously dealt with attorneys who were unwilling to aggressively litigate their cases. Under such circumstances, we have often achieved successful results for our clients despite the fact that their cases were initially denied when they hired us.

Keep in mind that insurance companies have access to millions of dollars to defend the companies and people they insure. They are able to hire experienced defense attorneys to minimize the amount of money that they must pay out to injured people for compensation in accident cases. You can level the playing field by hiring experienced personal injury attorneys in Chicago to represent your interests!

McHargue & Jones, LLC has recovered millions of dollars in settlements and awards for clients over the years. If you or someone you know has been injured at work or in any other type of accident, please call (312) 487-2461 today for a free consultation. McHargue & Jones, LLC charges no legal fees unless we recover money for you. Also, we do speak Spanish for the convenience of our clients.
