Lake Zurich Car Crash Attorneys

Motor Vehicle Collision Lawyers in Lake County, Illinois

Life can change so quickly. One minute, you may be driving on a local street or highway, and the next minute, your vehicle may be almost totally demolished. Whereas you may have been very fiscally responsible, there is now a large stack of bills that seems to get higher each day. You may have once looked forward to the future with a bright sense of anticipation, but now, there is a dark sense of foreboding. However, at least one thing has not changed. Every time the insurance company calls, you have basically the same conversation. They want to know about the accident, and they want you to settle your claim.

At Salvi & Maher, L.L.C., we know that no one can turn back time, but we will work hard to help ensure that you and your family have a brighter future. Our commitment to you is our best effort, and our best attitude, every time we pick up the phone, perform research on your case, and advocate for you in court.

Building a Negligence Case

We work diligently to collect key evidence and research the applicable law, then serve as a strong voice in court. All motorists have a duty of reasonable care. They must devote their attention to driving, follow the rules of the road, and drive carefully as conditions dictate. Although this duty seems fairly straightforward and easy to follow, hundreds of motorists breach their duty every day. Sometimes, they never should have gotten behind the wheel, because they are fatigued or impaired. At other times, they are negligent immediately prior to the collision. Typically, there is some combination of both.

If the negligent driver caused the victim’s injury, that driver is responsible for property damage, personal injuries, and other costs. Sometimes a third party, such as an employer or product manufacturer, may also be legally liable. Property damage typically includes the vehicle and valuable items inside the vehicle. Personal injury damages may include monetary compensation for both economic damages, such as lost wages, and non-economic damages, including pain and suffering.

Specific Situations

Negligence comes in many forms. Our Lake Zurich car accident lawyers routinely handle a wide variety of cases, including:

In most instances, especially when fault is reasonably clear, these matters may settle out of court. Sometimes, your attorneys and the insurance company may exchange offers and counter-offers informally until a resolution is achieved. Other times, there may be a more formal procedure, such as a mediation or arbitration.

Of course, mutual settlement is not possible in all cases. Our attorneys never take shortcuts and never take the easy way out. In fact, we approach every case as if it will ultimately go before the Supreme Court. Thorough preparation is a key to success, because court cases are typically won, or lost, before the jury is ever seated.
