Skokie Car Accident Injury Lawyers

Lawyers in Cook County, IL for Victims of Motor Vehicle Crashes

A serious car crash can alter the course of your entire life in a mere matter of moments. One moment, you could just be driving to work or the grocery store and following all traffic laws, and within seconds, you could suffer severe injuries that jeopardize all of your plans for the future.

If you or a loved one has been injured in any type of car accident, it is important to work closely with a qualified personal injury attorney who is not afraid to fight on your behalf. Insurance companies for at-fault drivers tend to make obtaining compensation after an accident much more challenging than it should be, but the team at Gruzmark Law, Ltd., is equipped to help. Our lawyers will advocate for your best interests throughout the process, and we are fully prepared to take your case to trial, if needed, to secure the compensation you need to start putting your life back together.

The Aftermath of a Car Accident in Northern Illinois

The first few minutes and hours after a car crash are generally full of bustling activity and confusion, and it is understandable that you might start to feel overwhelmed. This is particularly true if you have been hurt. How you handle this period, however, is important in protecting your eligibility for the collection of damages. After a traffic accident, there are several critical things that you should do:

  • Call the police. It might be tempting to try to handle the details of your accident without calling the police, but the police report is often a crucial component of a personal injury case. In most situations, this report is the first official record of the accident, so it should be filed as soon as possible.
  • Exchange information with other parties. If you are able to do so, it is advisable to exchange information with all other parties who were involved in the crash. Get names, phone numbers, insurance information, and addresses if possible. During the exchange of information, you should never apologize or make statements that accept blame for the accident, as this could negatively influence your case.
  • Document and photograph the scene. The accident scene itself often contains a significant amount of information and evidence that could be helpful to your case, which makes documenting the scene very important. Take pictures with your phone, if you can, or ask someone nearby to do so, and be sure to get photos of all involved vehicles, as well as any details that might have contributed to the crash. Such factors may include poor roadway maintenance, broken traffic signals, or bad weather.
  • Seek medical care. If you were injured in the accident, get medical attention right away, beginning with the paramedics or EMS personnel who respond to the crash. Even if you do not feel hurt, it is a good idea to have a medical professional examine you anyway. Some car crash injury symptoms might not appear for several hours or days after the crash, and being seen immediately is usually the best course of action.

North Shore Attorneys Protecting Your Rights

The road to physical and financial recovery after a car accident is not always easy, but with the help of the team at Gruzmark Law, Ltd., it is possible to get there. Our attorneys will investigate the details of your crash to determine how it occurred and who was at fault. Once the responsible party or parties have been identified, we will go to work in building a case to get you full compensation. Insurance companies are often quick to make settlement offers, but initial offers generally fall far short of the amount you need to move forward properly.

In addition to helping you deal with insurance companies and their attorneys, we are also prepared to aggressively negotiate your outstanding bills so that you can keep more of the compensation you recover. Our goal is to allow you to rebuild your life, and we will do everything we can to help you do so.
