Riding in an automobile is one of the least safe activities you can do and is far more dangerous than inherently dangerous activities such as skydiving, lion-taming, deep-sea fishing, and any other dangerous activity that comes to your mind. How dangerous is driving, you wonder? According to Driver Knowledge, there is an average of six million car accidents in the United States each year. Approximately 90 people die every day in car accidents. Roughly three million more are injured, and a startling two million sustain permanent injuries. That said, accidents can happen in a variety of ways. Below are some of the more common types of accidents that occur on Illinois roadways:

Unfortunately, insurance companies purposefully work slowly to settle a claim in the hopes that the injured party will grow frustrated and agree to an amount that is far less than what he or she deserves. You can prevent this from happening by discussing your case with an experienced Rockford auto accident lawyer as soon after the accident as possible. Once you contact Brassfield, Krueger & Ramlow, Ltd., we will call on our resources to investigate your claim, investigate the defense’s story, and work to ensure that you settle for nothing less than what you deserve.
Just like there are several different types of accidents, there are also several different types of accident injuries. Some are more severe than others, and as the above numbers indicate, many are life-altering. However, almost all injuries result in immediate monetary damages such as medical expenses, missed work, lost wages, therapy costs, and diminished earning capacity. Types of injuries for which we have helped past clients recover include the following:
If you or a loved one sustained serious injuries in an auto accident in Illinois, do not wait for the at-fault party’s insurance company to deny your claim, or for it to offer you a lowball settlement. Take proactive measures and reach out to a Rockford auto accident lawyer right away. You may not end up needing a lawyer, but if you do, you will be best served by having one on retainer who is familiar with the details of your case and who is prepared to step in and negotiate or litigate at the first sign of a dispute.
