 Will County Car Accident Lawyer

Lockport Car Accident Lawyer

Attorney Serving Clients Injured in Car Crashes in Bolingbrook, Plainfield and Homer Glen

Car accidents are a fact of life in the Chicago metropolitan area, where thousands of cars and commercial trucks cross paths on a daily basis and construction, storms and traffic frequently result in treacherous driving conditions. Most accidents, thankfully, are just fender benders that can be sorted out between insurance companies. 

However, if you or a loved one suffered catastrophic injuries in a car wreck, you may find yourself in a battle to obtain compensation for your injuries. First, there may be multiple sources from which you can claim compensation, and each source will try to minimize the amount they pay out. Second, the distribution of fault will play a major role in determining how much of your losses you can recover. This process can get very complicated. You may ultimately have to file a lawsuit in order to obtain full and fair compensation for your losses.

Determination of Fault in Illinois Car Collisions

In order to obtain the maximum compensation for your injuries, Illinois law requires us to prove that the crash was primarily the fault of the other driver. This is made easier if the driver was ticketed for or if there were witnesses who can testify to a wrongful or negligent act such as:

Sources of Compensation for Car Crash Injuries

We will exhaust all possible sources to obtain compensation for your losses. In handling many car accident cases, we realize that there may be more than one liable party or party to pursue including: 

  • Your own auto insurance company.
  • The at-fault driver's auto insurance company.
  • The at-fault driver personally.
  • The at-fault driver's employer, if they were driving a work vehicle on-the-job.
  • Workers' Compensation, if you were driving for work.
  • Social Security Disability, if you suffer a long-term (more than one year) or permanent disability that leaves you unable to work.
  • Other parties who may have contributed to dangerous road configurations, conditions or designs.
