Chicago Motor Vehicle Accident Attorneys

Chicago Substandard Medical Care Attorneys

Motor vehicle accident statistics for 2007 in greater Chicago were at 120,982. (According to the Illinois Department of Transportation’s Division of Traffic Safety Statistics.) Injuries were reported in nearly 15% of these accidents. These included minor, moderate and catastrophic injuries as well as 191 fatalities. While these statistics are now several years old, Chicago’s population has only grown in the interim. As the population has increased, so has the number of cars on the roads and highways.

If you are injured in an auto accident in Chicago, it’s important to choose an experienced attorney to handle your personal injury case.

Consequently, settlement offers are typically far less than is appropriate to compensate for medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering.

Victims typically have two years from the date of the accident to file a car accident lawsuit or claim for their injuries. Illinois is on the list of “fault” states.
