Attorney Kevin T. Veugeler is an associate with the Healy Scanlon Law Firm in Chicago, Illinois. Serving clients throughout Cook County and the rest of the state, Mr. Veugeler focuses his practice exclusively on helping his plaintiff clients obtain the compensation and benefits they deserve after getting hurt at work or suffering an injury or loss caused by someone else's negligence or wrongdoing.

After graduating cum laude from Northern Illinois University in 1993, Mr. Veugeler attended the University of Illinois College of Law, where he obtained his Juris Doctor in 1996. That same year, he received his license to practice from the Illinois State Bar Association and his admittance to practice before the U.S. District Court for the District of Illinois.

Handling all types of personal injury, wrongful death, medical malpractice and workers' compensation claims, Mr. Veugeler has achieved an impressive record of success advocating on behalf of the injured and disabled.

Among his most notable achievements include a $9.2 million verdict on behalf of the estate of a construction worker killed on the job and a $6 million verdict for an injured carpenter. He has also secured multimillion-dollar settlements and awards for car and trucking accident victims as well as substantial workers' compensation benefits for those in need.

Well-versed in his practice areas, Mr. Veugeler routinely conducts continuing legal education seminars and publishes articles on a variety of legal topics such as cross-examining expert witnesses, utilizing effective settlement strategies, handling uninsured motorist claims and many other related subjects.

Highly active with the Illinois State Bar Association, he once served as chair of the organization's tort section council, and he has served on the Illinois State Bar Association Assembly since 2007. He is also a member of the American Association for Justice, the Workers' Compensation Lawyers Association and The Chicago Bar Association.
