We Can Help You Seek an Insurance Settlement from the at-Fault Driver
Illinois drivers must have liability insurance to pay for accidents and injuries they cause. According to the Illinois Department of Insurance, the state mandates a minimum of:
- $25,000 in bodily injury coverage per person ($50,000 per accident)
- $20,000 in property damage liability
If another driver caused your injuries, you have the right to file a claim with their insurance provider. Our lawyers can help you through this process. We will:
- Calculate your damages
- Draft and send your demand letter
- Submit evidence proving negligence
- Review your settlement offers and negotiate on your behalf
Working with our attorneys can take the stress out of the insurance process. We will take care of communicating with the insurance company, saving you time and energy.
We Can File Your Case in Court (if Necessary)
The American Bar Association (ABA) says that going to court for a car accident is relatively rare. However, it still happens. If you need to file a lawsuit to seek damages, then we can:
- Manage your case’s paperwork
- Notify all parties of your intentions
- Present the cost of your damages and the severity of your injuries
- Strategize your case’s trajectory
- Communicate with the at-fault party and their lawyer
- Interview witnesses
- Consult with field experts
Our Lawyers Can Prove Another Party Owes You Compensation
Drivers owe others on the road a duty of care. This means that vehicle operators are expected to follow traffic laws and conduct themselves in a reasonable manner.
When they fail to do so, their actions constitute negligence. Examples of negligent driving include but are not limited to:
- Texting and driving
- Speeding or driving too fast for weather and/or road conditions
- Driving in the wrong lane
- Making an improper turn
- Failing to yield
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Driving too aggressively
- Driving drowsy or falling asleep at the wheel
Drivers should pay for accidents caused by their negligence or recklessness. We can prove your injuries were caused by another party. To do this, we can visit the scene of your accident, locate and interview witnesses, consult experts, and obtain photographic and video evidence.
