Christopher Johnson has spent a significant part of his career obtaining compensation for the accidents suffered by workers on the job. He has litigated across the State of Illinois against various employers such as: Advocate Health Care; AT&T; Chicago Public Schools; City of Chicago; Chicago Transit Authority; Cook County; and State of Illinois. As the grandson and son of nurses, he also takes great pride in representing nurses across Illinois who are injured at work. Mr. Johnson is also a Certified Emergency Medical Technician (EMT-B). While many of the injury cases that he has litigated have involved torn ligaments, cartilage, and tendons in the shoulders and knees, he also has years of experience handling cases involving disc injuries to the low back and neck. On less common occasions, he has worked on cases involving irreparable eye and brain injuries. Currently, Mr. Johnson is investigating injuries related to doctors, nurses, and other health care workers due to contracting Covid-19 from their patients and co-workers. Much of Mr. Johnson’s career has focused on obtaining compensation for the harms and losses that result as a consequence of basic safety rule violations outside of the work place that cause injuries to innocent people. He has trial and appellate experience in personal injury cases across Illinois, many of which have involved: tractor-trailer crashes; car wrecks; motor vehicle to bicycle collisions; motor vehicle to pedestrian collisions; safety rule violations on construction sites; wrongful death; and negligent maintenance by businesses. He is currently investigating cases where a work injury has taken place at Rush University Medical Center; University of Chicago Hospital; UIC Hospital; Uber; Raiser LLC; Lyft; UPS, Amazon Flex; Amazon; and Whole Foods Market. He is also investigating car accident cases concerning State Farm Insurance Company; Chubb; Geico; Erie; Progressive; Travelers; AIG; Aon; and Allstate. He currently works on cases in Chicago; Peoria; Bloomington; Effingham; Quincy; East St. Louis; Madison County; St. Clair County; Granite City; and Belleville
