About Us

Diesel Injury Law is lead by attorney Andrew Hughes. Andrew has over 15 years of trial and litigation experience in the fields of toxic tort and transportation law making him uniquely qualified to prosecute diesel claims.

In fact, Andrew spent the majority of his career defending Class I railroads, trucking companies, electrical conglomerates and brake manufacturers in wrongful death and catastrophic injury matters.

Andrew has litigated and tried cases against the Midwest’s top toxic tort and transportation attorneys. He will work with accomplished experts in occupational medicine, pulmonology, oncology, toxicology and industrial hygiene to prove up your claim.

Andrew retired his defense litigator black hat in part, when he was asked a simple question by his son: Dad, do you help people at your work?

Heeding that call, and armed with a deep understanding of the subject matter, Andrew decided to focus his drive on helping workers suffering from diesel-related illnesses.

Diesel Injury Law was not founded as a general practice law firm. We don’t handle car accidents, wills and dog bites. We are solely here to help the victims of diesel exposure.

Andrew is a graduate of Loyola University Chicago School of Law, where he was a member of the Dean’s List and where he was awarded the Pro Bono Service Award for service to the community.

He is licensed to practice in Illinois and Missouri state courts. He is a member of the Federal Trial Bar for the Northern District of Illinois, and he is admitted to practice in the Wisconsin Federal District Courts.

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.”
