Information is power and the more points you have, the stronger your case.

What should I do if I'm in a car accident?
Based on our experience, here's our advice on what you should do if you're involved in a car accident in Chicago, Cook County, DuPage County, Will County or anywhere else in the state.

  • Don't move your car – Leave it right where it is unless the police tell you to move it. And tell the other driver to do the same. If they caused the accident, preserving the accident scene is critical.
  • Call the police – Contact the police even if you are only mildly injured. They can create a police report for your accident – something that could be extremely important when trying to obtain compensation from your insurance company for your accident.
  • Talk to witnesses – If someone saw your accident, get their full name, address, and phone number. Witnesses can help you build a stronger case.
  • Gather evidence – Don't rely on the police to collect information about your accident. Record everything you can about your incident. Take photos of the accident scene, especially before moving your vehicle. Take pictures of any injuries. Every detail counts. Information is power. The more facts you have, the stronger your case.
  • Request police report – Before the officer leaves the accident scene, get the officer's name and badge number. Also, ask the officer how to get a copy of their police report.
  • Visit a doctor – Even if you feel OK, see a doctor for a checkup. What might seem like something minor could be a severe car accident injury.
  • Contact us – Our Chicago car accident attorneys have years of experience handling complicated car accidents. We can help you cut through all the confusion and ensure you get the compensation you deserve. Demand justice. Call (312) 425-2600 and schedule a free case evaluation today. 

Truck Accidents

Our Chicago truck accident lawyers believe injury victims deserve quality legal advice after a severe truck accident. The injuries caused by accidents involving large trucks, tractor-trailers, 18-wheelers, and other large vehicles are often painful. A big-rig truck might be 20 times heavier than a passenger vehicle. An accident at highway speeds can be devastating. With so much at stake, you must have an experienced Chicago personal injury lawyer working on your case. While a truck driver might be directly responsible for causing an accident, we will examine the liability of the driver's employer. As an employee, the truck driver is considered an agent of the employee, and the company is deemed liable for anything its agent does on its behalf. This includes:

  • Truck drivers
  • Bus drivers
  • Construction workers
  • Traveling salespeople
  • Train conductors

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents in Chicago typically account for many catastrophic injuries, such as brain injury, paralysis, broken bones, and death. In many cases, the motorcyclist can do nothing to avoid a collision with another car. The driver of the vehicle, however, could have easily prevented the accident.

Motorcycle crashes call for aggressive legal action. Contact our Chicago motorcycle accident attorneys today. We understand the complex nature of Illinois motorcycle accidents and know how to pursue compensation for injury victims and families who lost loved ones. If necessary, we can help you file a personal injury lawsuit in Chicago if we believe this is the best way to resolve your case successfully.

This might sound simple, but Chicago motorcycle accident victims often have difficulty getting the money they need from insurance companies. Why? The reason is simple: Many insurance companies wrongly assume that motorcyclists cause most accidents. The truth is quite different. Other drivers often cause motorcycle accidents, but the bias against motorcyclists persists. To hold negligent drivers accountable, you need an experienced attorney who is well-versed in Illinois law pertaining to the motorcycle. We are familiar with the issues involving motorcycle accidents and insurance companies.
