Representing Motor Vehicle Accident Victims Throughout Illinois

After experiencing the trauma of an auto accident, you may have many questions about what happens next. When someone is injured due to the reckless, careless or negligent actions of another driver, he or she may be entitled to financial compensation. If you or a loved one has recently been injured in a motor vehicle accident, consult White & Ekker, P.C. today. Our experienced Sugar Grove car accident attorneys understand the complicated personal injury law in Illinois. We have a reputation for successfully representing our clients, and will always put your goals first.

Anyone who has been in a car crash can affirm the experience is frightening and can have devastating, long-lasting effects. Auto accidents occur every day across Illinois and throughout the country. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that in 2012, 918 fatalities resulted from car crashes in Illinois, with thousands more non-fatal accidents occurring as well.

There are many common causes for motor vehicle accidents. Distracted driving, impaired or intoxicated driving, and failing to obey traffic laws may result in accidents, although they are not the only causes. Additionally, any accident can result in serious injury. Common injuries may include:

  • Broken bones;
  • Internal bleeding;
  • Concussion;
  • Whiplash;
  • Neck injuries;
  • Traumatic brain injuries;
  • Spinal injuries;
  • Deep lacerations;
  • Bruising;
  • Scarring; and
  • Emotional distress and suffering.

Besides the immediate physical and emotional pain of these injuries, such harm can lead to extensive financial stress. Medical bills and lost wages may be the results of your accident injuries.

Financial Compensation for Victims’ Damages

Whenever someone drives in a reckless, careless, or negligent manner, he or she may be held responsible for the resulting damages. As an accident victim, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your damages, or legal harms. Often, these damages include medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and emotional injury.

It can be difficult to determine who exactly is liable for your damages. In many cases, the responsible party is driving his or her personal vehicle on their own time. In other cases, that driver may be operating a commercial vehicle, such as a tractor-trailer, or driving for his or her employment. When an employer or other third party is involved, that could add another complication to an already complex lawsuit. An experienced Sugar Grove personal injury lawyer can investigate the circumstances of your accident, and use that knowledge to get you the compensation you need and deserve.
