Car Accident Attorneys Protecting Rockford, Illinois Clients for Nearly 80 Years

If you were injured in a car accident, you need someone who will look out for your interests and protect your rights. At Brassfield & Krueger, Ltd., our Rockford car accident attorneys have nearly eight decades of experience representing clients for injuries sustained in Illinois car accidents. No matter whether you received whiplash injuries in a minor rear-end collision or you have severe injuries from a serious multi-car accident, we are here to help. We will work tirelessly to prove the other parties were liable for the accident and help you get the compensation you deserve. 

Common Types of Car Accidents in Rockford, Illinois 

Car accidents happen every day on Illinois roads. In fact, according to the most recent data released by the Illinois Department of Transportation, there were over 311,000 crashes involving motor vehicles in 2017. 21.5% of those accidents included injuries to at least one occupant. Nearly 1,000 of those accidents involved fatalities.

Some of the more common types of accidents you will encounter on Illinois highways and streets include:

  • Rear-end collisions
  • Side-impact collisions
  • Hit-and-runs
  • Multi-car collisions
  • Head-on collisions
  • Rollovers
  • Collisions with pedestrians or bicyclists

Insurance companies are there to process your injury claim but do not expect that it will be resolved and that you will receive a check overnight. In fact, it can take months, or even years in some cases, to resolve an injury-accident claim. Having an Illinois personal injury attorney on your side can help streamline the process and eliminate unnecessary delays.

Injuries Resulting from Accidents in Illinois 

If you were involved in a car accident in Rockford, or anywhere else in Illinois, you need to seek medical treatment immediately. Even if you do not think you are initially injured, it can take several days for the full pain from soft-tissue injuries like whiplash to become apparent. Even seemingly minor accidents can result in injuries. Failure to seek medical treatment after the accident can hurt your case. 

The team of Rockford car accident attorneys at Brassfield & Krueger, Ltd., aggressively pursue compensation for our clients who have short-term, long-term or permanent injuries from an Illinois auto accident, such as: 

  • Neck Injuries: Neck injuries are very common in a car accident. Whiplash, neck strain or serious disk injuries can occur.
  • Head and Back Injuries: Next to neck injuries, head and back injuries are the most common injuries you will see in a car accident. Back injuries can range from mild strains to severe injuries like a lumbar spine injury and nerve damage. Closed head injuries are also relatively common and typically involve the brain getting rattled around inside the skull resulting in a closed head injury like a concussion or traumatic brain injury.
  • Emotional Trauma: Even people involved in minor accidents can have long-lasting psychological trauma, including panic attacks, flashbacks, PTSD, nightmares, etc.
