We Can Assess the Full Impact and Value of Your Accident-Related Expenses
In the aftermath of a side-impact car collision, expenses and losses can accumulate quickly. Assigning a value to these expenses is complex. Without the guidance and direction of a lawyer, you risk undervaluing your claim (which could result in a settlement that does not fully cover the financial impact of the accident). A lawyer can help you calculate your accident-related expenses including:
- Emergency and follow up medical bills
- Current and future lost income and wages
- Pain, suffering, and disability expenses
- Property damage and loss
- Assistive medical devices and household help
If you or a family member was involved in a car accident and incurred any of these accident-related expenses, speak to a lawyer who can help you fully and accurately assign a value to each element of your claim. Contact the Kryder Law Group, LLC.

We Will Organize Evidence That Supports Your Compensation Claim
Proving the value of your insurance losses necessitates compiling documents, evidence, and financial reports that support your claim. We must prove that the responsible party:
- Had a duty to practice a reasonable standard of care toward you
- Was negligent or failed to meet the accepted standard of care
- Was responsible for your physical injuries
- Is responsible for the financial damage your injuries caused
If you or a family member was involved in a side-impact collision, you may be entitled to hold the at-fault driver financially responsible for the expenses and losses their actions created. Contact the Kryder Law Group, LLC at (312) 223-1700 to review your potential for financial compensation in the aftermath of a side-impact car accident.
Compile Proof of Your Injuries and Expenses
An important part of your case is proving each element of your claim which requires clear and compelling evidence. To support your personal injury and property damage claim, provide your lawyer with the following:
- A copy of your police report
- A list of witnesses to the side-impact collision
- Witness testimony
- Expert witness testimony
- Pictures of your damaged vehicle from a variety of angles
- Pictures of the scene of the accident
- Traffic camera footage from the intersection where the accident occurred
- Copies of your medical records and bills
- Copies of your income statements to prove your lost wages
A copy of your insurance policy might also be helpful, particularly if the at-fault driver is uninsured and your policy includes coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers. Your Bolingbrook side-impact collisions lawyer might also request other pieces of information that support your compensation claim.
Comply With the Statute of Limitations in Illinois
Contact us as soon as possible after a side-impact collision. Doing so will ensure your lawyer has time to compile all the evidence and proof your claim requires and submit your compensation request in a timely fashion.
In Illinois, your compensation claim must be submitted in a predetermined amount of time. Your time to file a lawsuit is generally limited to two years from the date of the accident under 735 ILCS 5/13-202. In addition, your time to file a claim for the property damage expenses from the accident is generally limited to five years from the date the damage occurs under 735 ILCS 5/13-205.
A lawyer can confirm whether these timelines pertain to your case and can avoid putting your ability to file a claim in jeopardy.
