Chicago Car Accident Lawyer Helping You Move Forward After A Crash

Car, truck and motorcycle accidents happen every day and cause serious injuries, property damage and even fatalities. Whenever you get behind the wheel, you are at risk of serious injury or death. In many cases, this has nothing to do with your own behavior, but rather, the carelessness of other drivers.

Why Should I Hire A Personal Injury Attorney For A Car Accident?

The moments, hours and days following an accident are often filled with uncertainty as you begin to adjust to life with your injury and without a vehicle. By hiring a skilled attorney, you will have a dedicated team to help investigate the accident, compile important and helpful documents and work hard to ensure that all-important deadlines are met.

Trying to do this on your own can be a mistake. Handling the paperwork, police reports, medical care and vehicle damage can be overwhelming. When someone else’s negligence harms, injures or bereaves you, you should not have to suffer the consequences alone.

That is where our car accident lawyers can assist you. We have handled thousands of car and other vehicle accidents during our careers. We know how to investigate the accident, obtain and examine the evidence, consult with experts and build a strong case. If your injuries are severe, you will need considerable financial compensation to cover medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Did you lose a loved one to wrongful death in an accident? Those cases are even more complex and require an experienced, caring attorney to seek damages on your behalf.

What Types Of Motor Vehicle Accidents Do You Handle?

Motor vehicle accidents, or MVAs, are the most common type of personal injury claim. We classify them based on the type of motor vehicle that was involved. At Pavich Law Group, P.C., we handle:

Even a relatively minor crash can cause serious injuries and property damage. We will help you seek compensation for both.

How Is Liability Determined After An Accident?

After any kind of motor vehicle accident, make sure to check yourself and any passengers for injuries first. If someone is seriously hurt, call 911 and wait for help to arrive. Do not, under any circumstances, leave the scene of an accident.

No matter how minor a crash may seem, you should contact local authorities. If there are no serious injuries, you can call the nearest police station or highway patrol and gather evidence while you wait. Take pictures of the damage to the vehicles and the scene of the collision, and document any injuries you may have. If possible, exchange contact information with the other driver and check to see if anyone witnessed the crash. Once the police arrive, tell them what happened. Avoid speculation and speak in terms of fact.

Request a copy of your police report – this will be a valuable tool for determining liability.

Once you have seen your doctor, received a copy of the police report and compiled any information you have about the accident, contact our attorneys. Even if you don’t want to pursue legal action, our car accident lawyers can help you deal with insurance companies so that you get a fair settlement.

If I Am Partially At Fault In A Car Accident, Can I Still Get Compensation?

All states handle this issue differently. Illinois and Indiana are both “comparative fault” states in auto accident cases. Comparative fault means that a plaintiff’s compensation will be reduced by the amount he or she is deemed to have contributed to the accident. This means that even if you were partially at fault, you can still obtain compensation.

These are difficult determinations to make, requiring the experience and knowledge of a trusted team of attorneys.
