Seeking Maximum Compensation For Car Accident Victims
No one plans for a car accident. The severe injuries you sustain can leave you with medical bills, health care expenses and time away from work that you and your family can’t afford. At Mark L. Karno & Associates, LLC, our car accident lawyers can help you get the compensation you need for your recovery.
Personal Injury And Wrongful Death Cases
If you are involved in a single or multiple car accident, serious and life-changing injuries can result. Common car accident injuries include:
- Head injuries, such as a concussion or traumatic brain injury (TBI) due to trauma from high-speed impact
- Spinal cord injuries that can cause paraplegia and quadriplegia
- Back and neck injuries such as damaged disks and vertebrae
- Bone fractures/complex orthopedic injuries that require surgery
- The wrongful death of a driver or passenger
If you or your loved one suffered a severe injury, you may be able to seek damages from the other driver or the company that is responsible for those injuries. Our lawyers help car accident victims recover compensation for costs like medical bills, lost wages, rehabilitation and funeral expenses.
Common Causes Of Auto Accidents In Chicago
Traffic is almost always a problem when driving anywhere in the city. Once even the smallest backup happens, it is not uncommon for the risk of motor vehicle accidents to increase. Some of the most frequent reasons for car accidents in Chicago include:
- Distracted driving, such as texting while driving or using a cellphone while behind the wheel
- Drunk driving or impaired driving
- Drivers who fail to stop leading to rear-end collisions
- Motorists driving at a high rate of speed
While you may do everything possible to avoid being involved in a collision, things can happen even if you are constantly practicing safe driving habits. If you are injured due to another’s negligence, you need to make sure you speak to a law firm before you make any decision about your case.
Dealing With The Aftermath Of A Car Crash
The immediate moments after an accident are often critical for the future of your personal injury case. You need to seek medical attention as soon as possible to connect your injuries to the crash. Waiting too long to see a doctor could have a very negative impact on your case.
After getting medical care, you might be overwhelmed by all the things you will need to take care of as a result of the accident, and that is where our car accident lawyers can help. We can work with you to address all the issues that are causing you stress, and help you get back on track.
The Role Of Insurance In Auto Accident Cases
Anyone who has been in a crash, especially one where injuries resulted, is going to have to deal with one or more insurance companies. The adjusters will be calling and trying to get you to agree to their settlement proposals. They have a vested interest in getting you to release your injury claims before you have the opportunity to speak to an experienced car accident lawyer.
If you are injured in an accident, after seeking medical treatment, your next move should be to reach out to a law firm experienced in personal injury cases. Knowing what your case is worth can help you get fair compensation to meet your expenses connected to the crash, including medical bills and long-term care costs.
Car Accidents Involving An Uninsured Or Underinsured Motorist
While Illinois law requires motorists to have insurance in order to operate a motor vehicle on the state’s roadways, not all drivers follow this rule or have adequate coverage. If you are injured in one of these accidents, there are still things you can do to collect the compensation you are entitled to receive.
In many cases, your own insurance policy will include uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage to help you make up any shortages connected to the accident. To get a better view of your options in these situations, you need to talk to one of our accident lawyers as soon as possible to protect your potential injury claim.
