Legal Help When You Need It The Most

A personal injury can turn your life upside down, leaving you with stacks of medical bills, wage loss, pain and suffering, and other hardships. If you need legal help after a car accident, medical malpractice incident or other injuries, our law firm is here for you. We are Shay & Associates Law Firm in Decatur, serving clients throughout Illinois. Since 1992, we have been serving the needs of people facing tremendous suffering due to the negligence of others.

A History Of Legal Excellence

At many personal injury firms, attorneys encourage clients to accept the insurance company’s settlement offer to avoid going to trial — even if litigation could yield a better result. At Shay & Associates Law Firm, we are not just lawyers — we are trial lawyers. Our lead attorney, Timothy Shay, has tried more than fifty jury trials to verdict.  Tim has further arbitrated over 200 workers’ compensation claims before the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission and has argued appeals before the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission, and the Illinois Appellate Courts.  Tim has also litigated personal injury lawsuits in all three Districts of the Illinois Federal Court system.

Our attorneys’ qualifications are both individually and collectively strong. We invite you to learn more about our team of lawyers by clicking on their profile links below:

We are dedicated to helping people who have suffered due to careless drivers, medical mistakes, unsafe products, and negligence and wrongdoing of all kinds. We have established an outstanding record of success helping our valued clients obtain the compensation they need and deserve.

We Tell It Like It Is

If anyone benefits from inflated expectations in a personal injury case, it is not the client. We tell it like it is so that you know where you stand and what you can expect in terms of likely outcomes. If your case has merit and we believe we can help you secure a substantial reward or settlement, we will let you know. If we don’t think the legal issues line up in your favor, we will candidly explain the challenges and help you evaluate your next steps.
