Boone County Car Accident Lawyers Fight for You After an Illinois Car Accident

When you are injured in an auto accident that was not your fault, it can feel overwhelming. Even relatively minor accidents can cause soft tissue injuries that can cause you to lose time from work and require you to deal with insurance adjusters, repair shops, medical doctors, and more. This is where a knowledgeable Boone County car accident lawyer can help. At Brassfield & Krueger, Ltd., our attorneys have over 75 combined years of experience fighting for Illinois clients. No matter whether you have been injured in a minor rear-end accident or suffered severe injuries in a multi-car pile-up, our lawyers are here to help.

Our attorneys are committed to protecting your interests, proving the other party was liable, and helping you to maximize your potential compensation. 

Common Types of Boone County Car Accidents

Car accidents are a common occurrence all over the country. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that around three million people in the country are injured in car accidents each year. Of those, an unfortunate number of those result in fatalities. This opens the door to a wrongful death case in some instances. In Illinois, the majority of accidents seen on Illinois roads and highways include: 

  • Rear-end collisions
  • Side-impact collisions
  • Hit-and-runs
  • Head-on collisions
  • Rollovers

Insurance companies should be compensating you for your injuries and physical damages when their insured is at fault. They tend to take a lot longer than they should to pay in hopes that you will get frustrated and settle for a lower amount just to get compensated. Our Boone County auto accident lawyers know all of their usual tricks and tactics and have the resources to keep your claim negotiations going and pressure them to make a fair settlement offer. 

Typical Types of Injuries Seen in Boone County Car Accidents

Injuries sustained in an auto accident can vary widely depending on the mechanics of the accident. Some insurance companies will argue that it is impossible for someone to be injured in a low-speed accident, but problems like whiplash are a real consequence even in a 10-mile-per-hour accident. Some of the more common injuries seen in car accidents can include:

  • Neck Injuries: Neck injuries from a car accident can range from mild, like a neck strain or whiplash, to serious injuries like a disc injury with radiculopathy.
  • Head and Back Injuries: Closed head injuries are common in severe accidents as the brain can be rattled inside the skull during a collision, resulting in a concussion or traumatic brain injury. Back injuries can range from sprains to fractures and nerve damage.
  • Psychological Trauma: Even relatively minor accidents can leave someone with psychological trauma like panic attacks, depression, nightmares, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
