Mark A. Skibiel grew up in a family of blue collar workers. After a year of working for insurance companies, Mark realized his calling was to represent the victims of work accidents and auto collisions and not the insurance companies. Mark has first hand knowledge of the devastating affects that a work accident or a motor vehicle collision can have on you and your family. Mark's father was injured on the job several times during his career as an iron worker. Two of Mark's brothers had career ending work accidents involving knee and neck injuries.

Since 1992 Mark A. Skibiel has successfully represented thousands of clients against insurance companies in work and auto collision claims. Mark A. Skibiel has handled all types of injury claims from death and catastrophic to minor injuries.

Mark and his staff understand that the laws that apply to injury claims are complex. From our first meeting, we educate our clients about their rights as well as their responsibilities.

Mark and his staff approach each claim by putting themselves in the "shoes" of their clients they represent. We understand the importance of obtaining prompt quality medical care for our clients and ensuring the timely delivery income benefits as well as recovering the best settlement possible.

Client Testimonials

Mark was very knowledgeable and kept me informed with my case. He wasn’t intimidated with the large law firm. I know for a fact that without his expertise and diligent work ethic my settlement wouldn’t have reached the amount it did. He worked far beyond what I expected, meeting with the company doctor, therapist, and insurance representatives. HAVE A TALK WITH HIM ITS FREE!!!!!

Mark takes the time to get to know you as a person, not just as a case. He’s an attorney you can trust to keep you informed on every aspect of the case. I received all info about the case as soon as he did, and Mark carefully answered every question that I asked. I would recommend Mark to anyone who is in need of an honest attorney.

When my adjuster refused to pay for lost wages and for prescriptions, I felt the need to hire an attorney. After a brief consultation, I hired Mark. Within days, I saw results in my case. Everything that happened in my case went exactly as he told me it would happen in our initial consultation. When we went to the hearing, it seemed very one-sided and we won “hands down.” From start to finish, my case lasted less than nine months. My lost wages were recovered, and a sizeable settlement as well. Kudos Mark.

Mark explained, in detail, how the law would apply to my case and assured me it would take some time for me to accomplish my goal. During my case Mark and his staff kept my wife and me informed and updated. Every time my wife or I called Mark’s office we were able to get a response from either him or his staff. When we settled my case, it was more than I ever expected. Mark and his staff were professional in handling my claim. My experience with Mark and his office was wonderful!
