Car Accidents

Car (auto) accidents and injuries

Drivers of vehicles in Illinois are required to obey the traffic laws, rules and regulations. They are also required to use reasonable care when driving a motor vehicle. If a driver fails to use reasonable care and as a result of that failure you are injured, then the driver is responsible (liable) to you for those injuries. Serious car and other motor vehicle (collisions) accidents require the guidance of an experienced attorney.

Our firm has an impressive track record representing people who have suffered significant injuries in motor vehicle accidents (commercial and personal). We have successfully represented thousands of people injured in vehicular accidents, and have unique experience in prosecuting these cases. We have recovered millions of dollars for our clients injured in motor vehicle accidents. We work with physicians and other health care providers to assess and review all the short and long-term medical aspects of your case. Our detailed understanding of Illinois automobile, insurance and liability laws means we understand the different sources of recovery available to car and other vehicular accident victims and their families as well as the various theories of liability that enable those victims to collect from the parties who caused them harm. Time limits apply, so do not delay.
