Whiplash is a painful and potentially serious spinal injury that occurs when the neck is snapped forward and then back again in a violent motion. It can happen from any force of impact, such as a physical assault or a collision on the football field. But whiplash is most often associated with car accidents, particularly rear-end collisions. If you were injured in a whiplash accident, a Cicero whiplash accident lawyer from The Kryder Law Group, LLC, can help you collect compensation.
Because whiplash can lead to expensive medical bills and may force you to miss work, causing you to miss out on income, it is essential to collect the full compensation to which you are entitled from the at-fault driver and their insurance company. Our auto collision attorneys has a long and successful track record of getting our clients paid. We want to put our resources to work for you.
We offer a free consultation and never charge a fee until our clients get paid. To speak with a member of our team today, call us.
The Driver Who Caused Your Whiplash Injury Should Pay
A whiplash injury can lead to a long list of economic and noneconomic losses, including medical bills, lost wages, reduced earning capacity, pain and suffering, and much more. Not only can the financial costs add up quickly, but the noneconomic damages—defined as losses such as pain and suffering that cannot be quantified in dollar terms—are a heavy burden to bear, as well.
It should be not you but the person who caused the accident, along with their insurance company, who foots the bill for all these costs. At The Kryder Law Group, LLC, we hold drivers accountable for the injuries they cause our clients to suffer. We will help you recover compensation from the driver and the insurance company so that financial stress does not compound the physical and emotional pain you are already incurring.
We hold the at-fault driver responsible by:
Collecting Evidence and Building a Strong Case
As soon as we conduct your free case evaluation and you decide to move forward with us, we will get to work on your case right away. Among our first orders of business is to scour the accident scene, talk to witnesses, obtain photo and video evidence, look at cell phone records and other documents, and do whatever is necessary to collect enough evidence to make the other driver’s liability clear.
Taking on the Insurance Companies
When it comes to most car accident claims payouts, it is not the at-fault driver themselves but their insurer who actually writes the check and provides the compensation. It is therefore important to have a lawyer who is well-versed in insurance company negotiations and will not allow them to saddle you with a settlement that pays less than you deserve.
The Kryder Law Group, LLC, knows how to take on the insurance companies and make sure our clients get compensated fairly.
Going to Court if Necessary
We always try to agree to a fair settlement outside of court, as it speeds up the process of you getting paid and keeps us from entering a protracted legal battle. But if the insurance company does not agree to a reasonable settlement, we will not hesitate to file a lawsuit and go before a jury. Our trial lawyers have a very high success rate in jury trials and look forward to fighting for the compensation you are entitled to.

You Can Receive Economic and Noneconomic Damages for Your Whiplash Injury
In Illinois, car accident victims, including those who have suffered whiplash injuries, are eligible to pursue the at-fault party for both economic and noneconomic damages.
What do these terms mean? Economic damages refer to actual financial losses caused by the crash—in other words, things that either cost you money or kept you from getting money you would have otherwise received. Your medical bills are economic damages because they represent something that has to get paid out of pocket. Lost income from work is also economic because it is money your injury is preventing you from receiving.
Noneconomic damages refer to losses that cannot be quantified in dollar terms—things like pain and suffering. Even though it is difficult to assign a specific dollar value to your physical and emotional pain, you deserve to get compensated for it, and a whiplash injury lawyer in Cicero will fight for the most money possible under Illinois law.
During your free case evaluation, we can estimate the dollar value of your claim and explain the damages you may be eligible to receive.
The Statute of Limitations
The statute of limitations on car accident lawsuits in Illinois is two years for bodily injuries, including whiplash, according to Sec. 13-201 of the Illinois Statutes. If you fail to take action within this window, which starts on the day of your accident, your case may get time-barred, in which case you will lose the right to recover compensation. We can help you prevent that from happening by filing a quick lawsuit if necessary.
