Our experienced attorneys represent clients who have suffered serious, traumatic or permanent injuries—or are the families of those who suffered a wrongful death—in automobile, SUV, semi-tractor trailer or trucking accidents, collisions and rollovers. These accidents may involve drunk drivers, hit and run drivers, uninsured or underinsured drivers, or any other accident due to the negligence of another driver.

Injuries suffered as a result of these types of accidents can be severe, permanent, life altering or fatal and often include:

Our Chicago accident attorneys understand that your immediate goals after going through such trauma are to heal physically and emotionally, get your medical bills covered and paid, make sure you do not suffer financially through lost wages, and ensure the involved insurance company will pay for future treatments relating to your injury.
