Winnebago County, IL Car Accident Lawyers

The frequency of car accidents in Illinois is shocking and, unfortunately, many of them occur due to driver negligence. If you are hurt, your injuries can have devastating consequences for many aspects of your life. Beyond the initial trauma and medical treatment, you may require long-term care and endure agonizing pain and suffering. You may be out of work for some time, and your injuries can have an impact on your personal relationships with loved ones.

Fortunately, Illinois law does provide legal remedies if you are the victim of an auto collision. Our Winnebago County car accident lawyers at the Law Office of Brassfield & Krueger, Ltd. have extensive experience navigating the complex claims process to ensure you get the compensation you deserve. We will aggressively pursue your interests in settlement discussions with the responsible driver’s insurance company, but we will take the fight to court if necessary to protect your rights.

Serving Your Needs as an Injured Victim

Car accidents in Illinois are usually the result of negligence, so you must prove certain facts to recover compensation. You must also bring your claim within the amount of time designated by the statute of limitations, which is two years. The essential elements of a cause based upon negligence require you to show that:

  • The responsible motorist had a duty to operate the vehicle safety and avoid actions that put others on the road at risk;
  • This person breached the duty of care;
  • The failure to exercise proper caution was the cause of the accident that led to your injuries; and,
  • You suffered losses as a result of your injuries.

Because Illinois law requires motorists to carry certain statutory levels of auto insurance coverage, you will likely need to pursue the insurer to recover compensation for your losses. Filing a claim is challenging for various reasons, such as:

  • The insurance company is a business that focuses on profits. Paying out sums to resolve the claims of injured victims runs contrary to this objective.
  • In the interests of serving the insurer, adjusters will seek out reasons to deny your claim or reduce your compensation. They may question the seriousness of your injuries or try to pin blame for the accident on you.
  • Employees of the insurance company handle claims every day, which puts you at a disadvantage if you do not have a legal background.

Our car accident lawyers at Brassfield & Krueger, Ltd. have the skills and knowledge to help you navigate the insurance claims process. We are dedicated to ensuring you obtain the highest compensation allowed by law for your losses, including:

  • Medical costs;
  • Lost wages;
  • Pain and suffering; and,
  • Other damages depending on your case.
