Mitchell Lipkin is an experienced personal injury lawyer with an emphasis in automobile, construction, medical malpractice, slip and fall, nursing home and workers compensation cases.

Among the hundreds of clients Mr. Lipkin has successfully represented as an Illinois personal injury attorney:

  • Two young brothers, ages 10 & 7, received $3.25 million, after their mother died from a uterine rupture as a result of being ignored by her obstetrician and hospital nurse.
  • 31 yr old woman received $2.5 million after her doctor failed to follow up on an MRI ordered to determine the source of her severe low back pain. A two day delay in learning the results of the MRI, and making a referral to a neurosurgeon resulted in permanent neurologic injury to the ultra sensitive spinal nerves, with bowel/bladder and walking problems.
  • 52 yr old woman received $1.13 million after a cubicle wall improperly secured to the floor fell on her, while loading her work materials into an open pull-out drawer.
  • 39 yr old cable installer received $1.2 million after falling through an unsecured trap door in a ceiling access shaft in a high rise apartment building while attempting to retrieve his 2 way radio.
  • 36 yr old woman, an admitted drug and alcohol addict, wandered about the middle of a busy street at night while under the influence, and was struck by a car, sustaining massive injuries. After first denying the claim, insurance company for driver paid maximum policy limits after driver testified at deposition that he had seen the woman a block away, and failed to either slow down or take evasive action.
