Protecting Your Rights After an Accident
A car accident can happen anywhere, but intersections and highways are especially common sites. High-speed and head-on collisions usually cause catastrophic injury or death; these accidents are often the result of drunk or distracted driving. In an effort to reduce distracted driving accidents, Chicago passed a law stating that drivers must wear headsets when using a cell phone. In Illinois, a recent law makes it illegal to text or e-mail while driving.
Drivers, passengers and pedestrians are all at risk in an auto accident. They may suffer serious injuries, including:
- Broken bones
- Brain injuries
- Back, neck and spinal injuries
- Wrongful death
These injuries may result in disability or a lifetime of pain. We will seek compensation for medical bills, long-term care, lost income, pain and suffering, and other related expenses. In wrongful death cases, we seek additional damages for funeral expenses, emotional trauma and financial support for the family.
