Rear-End Collisions and Highway Blind Spots
Many of the accidents caused on highways involve rear-end collisions because drivers are not paying attention, using a cell phone or texting while driving. Others can involve merging or cars changing lanes without checking their blind spots. After a highway accident, it is important to consult with an experienced attorney who can determine the cause of your accident and identify all responsible parties.
Immediate Investigations to Preserve Evidence After an Accident
We work with experts to recreate the accident scene, contact witnesses and use physical evidence, including black box evidence, to determine the cause of the accident and whether drivers were negligent on the road. Our law firm knows how devastating a highway accident can be for victims. We will take action as soon as possible to protect your rights and recovery.

Highway Trucking Accidents in Illinois
As a midwestern city with heavy traffic between Wisconsin, Indiana and even the coasts, Lake County is a national hub of some of the worst traffic in the country. In addition to commuter traffic, Lake County is known for the heavy trucking loads carried around and through the city. Even though Illinois does not allow trucks in the far left lane, the danger to other drivers continues to be significant. We represent clients in truck accident cases involving improper loads, fatigued drivers, cell phone use, and recklessness or general negligence on the road.
