If you have ever been referred to a “specialist” – personal injury law is our specialty. That’s why many lawyers and former clients continue to refer serious injury cases to us. That’s why we have, and continue to, represent injured southern Illinoisans all over the United States. It’s in our DNA.


Personal Injury

Many law firms and lawyers claim they offer personal injury representation, but many of them are learning on the fly or only dab in helping injured people.  HDSL was representing injured clients before Pearl Harbor was attacked, and we draw on over eighty years of institutional knowledge obtained by being in courtrooms all over southern Illinois.   Southern Illinoisans are loyal people, but smart.  You don’t stay in business for over eighty years unless you offer them something solid and something they can trust.

Workers’ Compensation

Injured workers mean more to us than a quick settlement.  A denied comp claim means not only is a person injured, but their livelihood and income has been taken away.

Medical Malpractice

Whether it be a surgical procedure done incorrectly, a diagnosis that is missed, or dangerous errors in prescribing medications, medical errors can have deadly consequences.


One of the most difficult things to know for those harmed by serious medical errors is whether their claim has merit.  At HDSL, we only take serious injury medical malpractice claims, and every one of the cases is reviewed and approved by a physician in the same specialty before we agree to file it.  Because of this, you can be confident that your claim is not frivolous, and your injury will not be ignored.
