Chicago Car Accident
Being involved in a car accident is a very unfortunate fact of life for many people. While some accidents are minor, many are often serious and result in injuries that are life-changing. Serious injuries may result in lost wages, lost earning potential, medical bills and long-term medical treatment. The type of compensation you need to move forward may depend on the type of injury and it’s severity.
Some of the most common types of car accident injuries include:
At Willens Law Offices, we know that a car accident case has the potential to take over a person’s life, making it difficult to move forward. Our top-notch team of attorneys and staff want to help people take control of their situation so they can focus on what matters most — getting back on track.
Determining Liability in a Chicago Car Accident
Trying to determine liability in a car accident is a matter of deciding who the negligent driver was and this can be a complicated process. No matter how clear it may seem as to who was at fault in the car accident, the insurance companies often launch their own investigation. They may gather police reports, inspect the accident scene, interview witnesses and further investigate the cause of the car accident.
Our firm’s founder, Matthew L. Willens, is very familiar with the insurance company’s tactics and can thwart any effort to deny you of your rightful full and fair compensation. We know how to assign liability where it belongs.
Types of Negligent and Reckless Driving
A negligent or reckless driver is defined as a person that behaves in a careless or thoughtless manner, causing injury or harm to another person. Some examples of negligent driving include:
- Texting while driving
- Aggressive driving
- Driving while intoxicated
- Distracted driving
- Drugged driving
If you have been injured, or a loved one has been killed, in a Chicago car accident due to the negligence on another driver, you have a right to compensation. We focus exclusively on representing individuals and their families who were injured by someone else’s negligence.
Your Rightful Compensation
Insurance companies make billions of dollars by collecting as much as they can in premiums from ordinary people, then paying out as little as possible when claims are made. Their tactics of denying, delay, defend have been a mainstay after an accident for many, many years.
If you or a loved one have been injured in a car accident, you should be receiving compensation for ALL of your benefits. At Willens Law Offices, we determine your fair settlement based on several factors; past and future medical bills, rehabilitation, lost earnings, loss of earning capacity, disfigurement, pain and suffering, disability, loss of normal life and changes in your relationships with your loved ones. We determine this at the appropriate time, on your time table, not in insurance companies.
