Mundelein Motor Vehicle Collision Attorneys
Lake County, Illinois Car Crash Lawyers
Many accident victims feel powerless after a serious car crash. The collision not only claimed their primary, or only, means of transportation and independence, it also may have severely limited their personal mobility, as they are often told to stay in bed or avoid normal activities while they recover. Whereas victims were once in control of their finances, now there is a large pile of medical bills that demands their attention. To make matters worse, the insurance companies insist that victims settle their claims, giving them the feeling that they have no control over the outcome.
At Salvi & Maher, LLC, we empower victims. Our experienced professionals use proven methods to develop a solid case that puts you in the best possible position during settlement negotiations. At trial, our attorneys are strong advocates for your position, and they fight for your rights for as long as it takes.
Building a Case
The careless driver is nearly always a defendant in a negligence case. Some motorists should never get behind the wheel at all. They may be fatigued, impaired by a legal or illegal substance, or have an invalid drivers’ license. In other instances, negligent drivers cause collisions because they ignore the rules of the road or do not drive defensively.
There may be other possible defendants as well. Employers are typically responsible for the negligent acts of their employees, and people who sell alcohol may be liable if the intoxicated patrons later injure themselves or others. Negligent parties are responsible for the plaintiff’s damages. These items may include economic injury, such as lost wages and medical bills. Many victims also suffer non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and loss of enjoyment in life. Punitive damages may also be available in some cases, to punish the wrongdoer and deter future misconduct.
At Salvi & Maher, we understand that there are no shortcuts in this process. We work hard to deliver results that exceed your expectations.

Some cases are resolved in a few months while others may consume several years. No matter how long it takes, we never stop fighting for you. The insurance company does not have your best interests in mind, but rest assured that we are on your side.
