Attorney Profile

Brad Pollock has been successfully representing people hurt or killed by the wrongful conduct of others for more than twenty years. He has secured numerous record setting financial recoveries for his clients both at trial and through settlement, which have been featured in the news. While the award of money damages cannot undo the life changing effects of a traumatic injury, it can provide necessary compensation for the losses and future needs experienced by victims of wrongful conduct. 

Brad began his legal career in 1995 working as an insurance defense attorney in Chicago. He then elected to switch sides taking his defense experience and using it for the benefit of his injured plaintiff clients. Since that time, Mr. Pollock has dedicated himself to obtaining justice on behalf of his clients and, at the same time, promoting change to prevent future unnecessary injury or loss of life. Brad concentrates his legal practice in areas that include: wrongful death; catastrophic injury; traumatic brain injury; transportation/motor vehicle collisions; construction injuries; medical malpractice; products liability; premises liability; and nursing home neglect and abuse.
