At Coogan Gallagher, our lawyers and staff believe in hard work. None of us would be where we are, in the fortunate position to work for clients we care about doing work that we believe in, without it. Each of us had opportunities to get here thanks to the sacrifices and hard work of our parents and their parents before them. The United States is a young country. In just a few decades, we built great structures and a vast network of cities. This would not happen without the commitment of the engineers, laborers, plumbers, fitters, drivers and engineers that laid the groundwork.
The country would not function without the professionals and service workers who make the whole system move. Farmers, processors and food service workers who feed us. Nurses and doctors who keep us healthy. And yes, even the lawyers, paralegal staff and judges that apply the justice system to resolve our disputes. And we always owe a debt of gratitude to the servicemembers, first responders, police officers, firefighters and paramedics that run towards danger in order to save lives and minimize disaster.
There are too many other professions to name. It would be impossible to do justice to all the essential work that has built this nation and keeps it running. The COVID-19 pandemic presented a unique opportunity for Americans to witness just how essential healthcare, logistics and food workers are when so much of the economy was forced to shut down.
The law is there to protect workers. From Federal OSHA regulations to the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act, workers deserve protection. However, our job is to advise you of your rights. The lawyers of Coogan Gallagher know the answers to your questions. We know the rules. We know the law. And we can protect your rights when a serious injury jeopardizes your health and your economic safety.
Thank you for all you do. We are here when you need us.
