Car Accidents in Illinois

Chicago, IL - Two Children, One Adult Hurt in Collision on I-57Road accident fatalities are rising in Illinois, according to a recent National Safety Council research. The state’s overall number of fatal crashes increased by an alarming 11% in the first quarter of 2020 compared to the corresponding period in 2019. In Cook County, which features Chicago as its county seat, there were 269 fatal collisions in 2018 and 294 in 2019.

While some car accidents are rather simple, like when two cars just hit, other accident situations can be far more complicated. Car accidents can result in significant losses, particularly if you were seriously hurt. Medical costs, bodily discomfort, lost wages and benefits, and mental grief is just a few examples of these losses. Your initial call should be to one of our knowledgeable Illinois auto accident attorneys for a case examination if you think you might be able to file a lawsuit following an automobile accident.

Without legal counsel, it may be difficult to obtain financial compensation from the insurance provider if you have been hurt in a car accident. Insurance firms have years of expertise in low-balling claims in order to protect their bottom line by paying as little as possible in settlements.

D&W Law Group will make every effort to guarantee that you get the money and medical care required for a full recovery. With the assistance of a knowledgeable attorney, you can begin your personal injury claim for compensation, bringing you that much closer to recovery.

  • "Excellent Law Firm!"

    I cannot recommend D&W Law Group enough. From the moment I met the team, I felt confident that I was in good hands. They kept in touch with me every step of the way. My attorneys fought the insurance company, and we settled my case without having to go to court. Excellent law firm!

  • "Great Settlement"

    When I had my accident, the insurance company dragged its feet. I tried to handle the case on my own. I am so glad I decided to hire D&W Law Group. They kept my case moving, and I was awarded a great settlement. I hope I never need an attorney again, but if I do I will call them.
