Car accident injuries can be catastrophic.

Chicago, IL Knowledgeable Personal Injury Law Firm Serving Victims of Head-On Collisions

head on collision aftermathHead-on collisions are the most dangerous of all vehicle accidents, typically resulting in catastrophic injury or death. If you have been injured in a head-on collision caused by someone else, you have the right to pursue full compensation under Illinois personal injury law. When an accident like this happens, it is important to move quickly to secure prompt legal representation.

The True Value of Your Claim

A head-on collision might result in lifelong debilitation that can throw you out of work permanently and require medical treatment for decades to come. If you fail to accurately calculate your future medical expenses and lost wages (among other damages), you could run out of money years from now – and by then it will be too late to demand more.

That is why it is critically important that you accurately determine the full value of your claim right from the beginning. An experienced Illinois personal injury lawyer can help you calculate the value of your future needs, and gather the evidence necessary to prove it, so that you can demand every penny that you are entitled to.

Wrongful Death Lawsuits

When a personal injury victim dies from his injuries, his personal injury claim becomes a wrongful death claim. A wrongful death claim is filed by the victim’s personal representative for the benefit of the surviving spouse and close relatives. If your injured loved one died in the accident, or dies while pursuing his claim, a wrongful death claim is appropriate.

Our Practice Areas

Personal injury law is largely the same no matter how you are injured. Below is a partial list of the kinds of cases we handle:

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1) Should I file a lawsuit or settle out of court?

Generally, out-of-court settlements are far more convenient that civil trials, and over 90 percent of our clients end up with a settlement. Since the threat of a lawsuit is the only real bargaining leverage you have, however, you have to be ready to fight and win in court just to make sure the other side takes you seriously at the negotiating table.

2) What are the most common causes of head-on collisions?

Head-on collisions are typically caused by:

  • Dangerous road conditions (usually due to inclement weather)
  • Driver intoxication
  • Texting while driving, or other types of distracted driving
  • Tire blowouts
  • Reckless or aggressive driving
  • Falling asleep at the wheel (particularly for commercial truckers)
  • Speeding around sharp turns

3) Can I sue Uber if one of their drivers caused the accident?

Probably not, since Uber drivers are not considered employees of the company.
Nevertheless, Uber offers its drivers liability insurance with limits of $50,000 per person and $100,000 per accident, more than the minimum auto insurance requirements for most states.

4) My doctor wants to place a lien on my future recovery. Can he do this legally in Illinois?

Yes he can, within limits. The following parties are entitled to place such a lien:

  • Hospitals
  • Doctors
  • Dentists
  • Physical therapists
  • Chiropractors

In general, the total amount of all liens combined cannot exceed 40 percent of your recovery.

You Don’t Pay Unless You Win

Under our Zero Fee Guarantee system, your total legal fees will be zero unless we win your case. That seldom matters, of course, since we win 95 percent of our clients’ cases. In any event, you will owe us nothing until your money actually arrives. So in effect, it is the opposing party who pays your legal fees.

Have You Been Injuried In A Head-On Collision? Fortune Favors the Bold

In personal injury law, what you can prove matters more than what actually happened – and evidence grows stale over time. That is why it is important to act quickly to establish your claim. Call us today at 1-888-836-5975 or contact us online for a free initial consultation. We can even meet you at the hospital if you so require.
