Car Accidents

Car crashes are the most common type of personal injury cases ACME Law Offices handles. Every driver knows that the road can be a treacherous place. According to the Department of Transportation, in 2007, a fatal automobile accident occurred every 12 minutes. This means that every day an average of 119 people died in automobile accidents inside the United States. In the same year, over two and a half million people were injured during a collision, and over 4-million accidents involving property damage were reported. Many of these crashes occur in Illinois and Wisconsin.

Injuries sustained in a car accident range from whiplash to broken bones, ligament/muscular injuries, and even debilitating spinal injuries, and/or death. It will be difficult to get insurance companies to cover the entirety of your care, and depending on the type of injury, medical care may be necessary for years. Never limit your treatment because the insurance company is pressuring you.

The goal of the insurance company is to pay out the smallest amount possible to settle your car accident injury claim. It's the reason insurance companies make billions of dollars every year, and they continually employ persuasive adjusters and high-priced attorneys to make sure their dollars stay out of your hands. It's also common for the insurance company to use excuses to deny or limit your claim. The car crash wasn't your fault, and you shouldn't feel guilty.

Time is a critical factor in any car accident claim. It is possible that evidence in your case may be lost, witnesses may disappear, the statute of limitations will pass, and memories will fade. The smallest mistake can cost you, and without an attorney you may never be fully compensated for your injury claim. And even if you don't retain an attorney, at least consult with an experienced car accident injury claims lawyer so that they can provide you with free guidance.
At ACME Law Offices in Chicago, we will handle your car crash injury case from start to finish. In Illinois and Wisconsin, we will go to traffic Court on your behalf, we will deal with the adverse party's insurance company, we will work with your doctors to make sure you get full treatment, and we will go to Court and fight for your maximum compensation if the insurance companies are not treating you fairly.
