Auto Accident Lawyers in Winnebago County, IL

If you are hurt in an auto accident, your injuries can be catastrophic. Not only do you suffer extreme pain from the immediate impact, but you may also suffer for some time afterwards. During this already difficult time, your medical bills are mounting and you could be out of work due to your injuries. Fortunately, Illinois law allows you to recover compensation from the driver responsible for the car crash, but you face an uphill battle in filing a claim.

You are at a disadvantage in attempting to pursue your rights alone, so it is critical to retain our experienced, knowledgeable auto accident attorneys at Brassfield & Krueger, Ltd. For more than 70 years we have been representing victims of car collisions in Winnebago County and throughout Northern Illinois. Our dedication and attention to detail ensures you obtain the highest amount of compensation available under Illinois law.

Complicated Legal Issues in an Auto Accident Case

To recover for your losses after a traffic collision, you must prove that the responsible driver operated his or her vehicle negligently or recklessly, and that these actions were the cause of your injuries. You must also demonstrate that you sustained losses as a result of being hurt. However, as straightforward as the process sounds, there are many complex issues involved with auto accident cases.

  • Issues Related to Fault: In the chaos surrounding a car crash, direct and indirect factors that may have contributed to the accident may not be so clear. In a multiple vehicle collision with chain reaction implications, issues regarding fault are even more murky. Plus, Illinois law on contributory negligence has harsh consequences if you were somewhat responsible for the incident. You are barred from recovering any compensation if you were 50 percent to blame for the accident.
  • Stingy Insurance Companies: Insurers are businesses first and foremost, so they do not have your best interests in mind. To protect their bottom line, insurance companies will offer the lowest amount possible or may even deny your claim entirely.
  • Filing a Lawsuit: If you cannot come to a settlement agreement with an insurance company, it will be necessary to take your auto accident case to court. Without a legal background, meticulous knowledge of the law, and familiarity with court procedural rules, you put your rights at risk.

Recover Compensation for Your Losses After an Auto Accident

You may be entitled to monetary damages for the losses you suffer due to car crash injuries, such as:

  • Medical costs, including emergency and urgent care, surgery, rehabilitative treatment, and related expenses;
  • Lost income for the time you were unable to work due to your injuries;
  • Pain and suffering; and,
  • Other losses based upon the facts of your case.
