Effective Representation In Motor Vehicle Accident Cases

Almost every day while out driving in Chicago, you will probably see someone involved in a car accident. Most of these crashes result in damage to vehicles, but its less common for someone to suffer an injury as a result of the collision. However, some motorists are involved in extremely serious accidents, and if this happens to you, you need a law firm that is ready to prepare a strong case on your behalf.

At Mark L. Karno & Associates, LLC, our injury attorneys and staff understand the toll that injuries from auto accidents can take on you and your loved ones. We are dedicated to pursuing the justice and the compensation you deserve for your injuries from an insurance company that refuses to treat you fairly. Schedule a free consultation at our firm to discuss your case and the possibility of monetary compensation with one of our personal injury lawyers.

Handling A Wide Range Of Chicago Car And Truck Accidents

With so many people driving in the city each day, an accident could happen to you at any time. We can handle any type of Chicago car accident case, including:

We craft your legal strategy based on your goals for your case. Our injury lawyers deal with the insurance company and other parties in your case to take the stress out of the legal process for you. With more than 30 years of experience litigating injury cases from both sides, our attorneys know what strategies the insurance company will try. This gives us an advantage when planning how to approach your case. We know how to conduct a thorough investigation of your accident and gather the evidence necessary to create a compelling case.

About Your Chicago Car Accident Case

You might have many questions about what you should do if you have been injured or lost a loved one in an accident. It can be a confusing time for you, with many different things to take care of seemingly all at once. While it may be a stressful time for you, know that you do not have to deal with the insurance company on your own. Do not make any statements or engage in any conversations until you understand your options.

After an accident, especially one that has led to a serious injury, the insurance company representatives may reach out to you to try to talk you into settling your case. They know what your case is worth, and they hope you will accept an offer for far less compensation that you would otherwise be entitled to receive.

Our attorneys always provide straightforward advice you can understand. Together we will make the decision to go ahead with trial or take a favorable settlement, depending upon what proves to be in your best interests. We are not going to just take your case to settle. You get experienced advice, when you need it, about the choices facing you in your specific situation.

Why Shouldn’t I Just Settle?

We understand. Things are difficult enough after an accident, and your injuries may be making things even worse. Settling gives you a quick check and puts the whole matter in the past. You might feel that all of your expenses are provided for, but, immediately after an accident, it is tough to know exactly what the future will hold.

If you settle without talking to one of our accident lawyers, you might be causing yourself serious harm. You may not know what sort of long-term care you will need for your injury, and a settlement means you cannot go back to get the compensation needed to pay these additional medical expenses.

Why Hire A Chicago Car Accident Lawyer

Before you make any decisions about your case, you need to speak to a law firm that has a record of success in Chicago car accident cases. Our personal injury attorneys will work hard to help you review all your options, and fight for you to get you a fair resolution of your claim. We are knowledgeable, experienced advocates in the field of personal injury law, having obtained favorable results for hundreds of clients.

Doesn’t It Cost Money To Hire An Injury Attorney?

Our firm handles all personal injury cases, including wrongful death lawsuits on a contingency fee basis. What this means is that it costs you nothing to come in and talk to us about your accident. An experienced Chicago auto accident attorney can meet with you at your home or hospital, and discuss what happened. You can ask us questions, and get answers about what we can do to help you recover compensation for any injury suffered in the accident.

What Our Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyers Can Do For You
