Joliet Car Accident Lawyer

Attorney for Motor Vehicle Accidents in Will County

Car accidents can happen to anyone because careless drivers are everywhere. Careless driving can take many forms, but each represents an enormous danger to everyone around them. When everyone follows the rules of the road and uses the level of caution required, accidents are far less likely. However, many drivers fail to treat driving like the dangerous activity it is.

After a collision, you may face a lot of challenges. Your injuries can prevent you from working and earning income, sometimes in the short-term, and sometimes permanently. Your medical bills are likely to be substantial, especially if you were hospitalized or will require follow-up care. Aside from these direct economic harms, you are also facing the pain and suffering associated with your injuries and perhaps the psychological trauma of the accident. The good news is that you can likely recover compensation for all of these harms.

Rathbun, Cservenyak & Kozol LLC is skilled in helping people who have been injured in car accidents recover the payments they need and deserve. We begin each case with a complete investigation into the causes of the car accident to discover any proof of the other driver's negligence. We take the time needed to fully understand the degree of damages you have faced so that we know what your claim is truly worth. Our attorneys will do all we can to see you recover the full amount you are entitled to under the law.

Common Types of Car Accidents We Can Help With

We can help with most accidents caused by careless drivers. Common types of car accidents we work on include:

  • Drunk driving accidents - Drunk drivers and drivers intoxicated by other substances are notorious for causing serious crashes. Intoxicated drivers often lack the reaction time and control needed to prevent an accident.
  • Rear-end collisions - Rear-end collisions are one of the most common types of collisions. They can cause serious back injuries.
  • Distracted driving accidents - Cell phones are a very common source of distraction for drivers. Drivers should be paying attention to the road around them at all times while driving.
  • Rideshare accidents - Rideshare drivers are not trained professional drivers - nearly anyone with a car can drive for Uber or Lyft. These drivers are economically motivated to complete trips as quickly as possible, which can lead to careless driving habits.
  • Uninsured and underinsured driver accidents - Most hit-and-run collisions fall into this category. Recovering compensation after an accident caused by a driver without adequate insurance can be complex, and often involves filing a claim with your own insurance company.
  • Serious accidents - A catastrophic injury is one that is permanent and life-altering. Catastrophic injuries include things like paralyzing spinal cord injuries and serious brain injuries. People who have suffered these injuries may be permanently disabled and need lifelong care. These are often high-dollar settlements due to the amount of care required.
  • Fatal crashes - When a person is killed by a careless driver, their close family members may be able to pursue compensation through wrongful death litigation.

The costs of a car accident can be immense. If you are not the one who caused the accident, you should not bear the burden of its financial consequences. It is best to be represented by an attorney who is familiar with the laws and rules of compensation in this field so that you can be sure you are asking for what your claim is worth.
