Libertyville Car Accident Attorneys
Car Crash Lawyers in Lake County, Illinois
Accident victims often experience a wide range of emotions. Many are angry at the negligent drivers, and they want to punish them and anyone else who was responsible for their injuries. They may be worried about how to deal with the rising tide of medical bills and other related expenses, especially since they may be out of work recuperating from their injuries. Victims are often depressed, as they realize that the days following the crash may be quite different from the days before the crash. On top of everything else, insurance companies typically pressure victims to take the first settlement offer.
At the law offices of Salvi & Maher, LLC, we win money for injured victims in court. We also take the pressure off you by dealing with the insurance company. The money we obtain is more than numbers in a bank account. The judgement brings some measure of closure to the case and helps victims deal with life after the collision. No one can turn back the clock to the time prior to the accident, but our experienced attorneys can help ensure that you and your family have a better life from now on.
Transportation Crashes in Libertyville
Most motor vehicle “accidents” are not “accidents” at all. In many cases, a negligent driver, and perhaps a third party as well, was responsible for your personal injury and property damages. Our experienced professionals quickly evaluate the situation and take prompt action to recover money in many different situations, including:
- Rear-End Collisions,
- Motorcycle Accidents,
- Motor Vehicle Collisions,
- Truck Accidents,
- CTA and Bus Accidents,
- Bicycle Accidents,
- DUI-Related Accidents,
- Pedestrian Accidents,
- School Bus Collisions, or
- Recreational Vehicle Collisions.
A number of operator-controlled items, such as distracted driving, speeding, fatigued driving, and impaired driving, often contribute to these collisions. There are also environmental factors. Some drivers do not use enough caution on wet or icy roads and do not account for poor light conditions, such as fog or darkness, which decrease visibility.
Many cases are settled out-of-court with a demand letter. The insurance company has a legal duty to settle matters as quickly as possible, especially when liability is clear. If necessary, our attorneys do not hesitate to file suit on your behalf. Once that happens, there is a formal discovery process, which may involve document exchanges and depositions. If there is no agreed resolution, we are your strong advocates in the courtroom and we are not satisfied with anything less than the best possible outcome.
Legal damages in these matters includes compensation for economic injuries, such as past and future medical bills as well as past and future lost wages. Many victims also receive compensation for non-economic losses, such as pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment in life. Punitive damages, to punish the offender and deter future wrongdoing, are also available in some cases.
