Hess Injury Law Firm

Injury Law. It’s All We Do.

We ❤️ helping our clients through what is likely one of the most difficult times of their lives, and we ❤️ fighting the good fight. That’s why personal injury law is all we have ever done.

What We Do

Car Accidents

Make no mistake, if you were hurt because another driver wasn’t paying attention, that was no accident. That driver chose to do something other than pay attention to the road and made you a victim of their negligence. Their insurance company is a billion-dollar business looking to make money for the shareholders. Don’t be a victim twice.

Truck Accidents

Tractor-trailors weigh up to 80,000, about 20x the weight of your average passenger vehicle. When a truck driver ignores the appropriate level of care required to operate such an enormous vehicle the injuries can be catastrophic, the stakes are high, and consequences can be irrevocable. Know your options, immediately.

Workers’ Comp

Regardless of whether you’re sweating pipe, turning wrenches, or pushing pencils, workplace injuries are extremely common. From acute construction injuries to repetitive-motion type injuries such as carpal-tunnel syndrome, you have to know the benefits you’re entitled to.

Slip and Falls

Property owners are required to keep their premises in a reasonably safe condition. Of course, not all slip/trip and fall incidents are preventable, but when the property owner knew of the dangerous condition but chose not to fix it and someone is then hurt, that owner is responsible for the harm the hazard caused. That’s just basic ethics.

Medical Negligence

Medical error is the third leading cause of death in the United States. Think about how terrifying that is. Medical professionals are required to act with the level of care of a reasonable professional in their field. When they do not, they must be held accountable just like everyone else.

Animal Attacks

Domesticated animals, specifically dogs, are wonderful companions and enrich countless lives (Mr. Hess was the VP of the Animal Defense Fund). Animal owners, however, can be problematic. We love our pets and must care for them which includes protecting others from potential injury. If an animal owner does not take the proper precautions and an innocent person is harmed, that owner must take responsibility for the harm their inaction caused.

About Us

This is our passion.

We don’t back down from a fight. We don’t quit until our clients tell us to. We right wrongs.

Proud to be local.

As residents of Hoffman Estates for over 40 years, we work hard for our neighbors. Our reputation depends on it.


“I am so thankful that I called Matt about my injury case. It only took one meeting with Matt for me to completely trust him to represent me, and I can’t say enough about his expertise, persistence, and genuine passion for making things right for his clients.

Throughout the process, Matt took the time to get to know me as a person and fully understand the details and impact of my accident, and always advocated for my best interests. He made sure I knew what was happening every step of the way, what options I had, and what I could expect moving forward.

Matt went above and beyond to take care of the complicated behind-the-scenes work to ensure my case could be resolved and so that I could maximize my settlement. He took the stress out of the process and put me at ease so that I could focus on my recovery. I am grateful I had Matt on my side and absolutely recommend him and his firm.”

“Attorney Matthew Hess has been a blessing sent into my life. He represented me in a personal injury case, without him I would have not faired so well. Matt is a very professional attorney to work with, he explained every step taken during this long process,

Matt is also very compassionate and worked diligently for me with the claims people. He always questioned my well being, guided me with my treatments and answered each and everyone of my questions.

I would recommend him to anyone needing professional assistance with a personal injury case. He came through for me 100%”
