Car Accident Injury Attorneys

We are Northern Illinois Car Accident Injury Lawyers.

With the slam on the brakes or running of a red light, your whole life can change. Perhaps the other driver had just one too many drinks. They could’ve taken their eyes off the road for a split second, just to look at their buzzing phone on the passenger seat. Maybe they took their hands off the wheel to change the radio station. Maybe they dozed off at the wheel.

But that could be all it takes to cause a car crash. That split second, that mere mistake; that’s all it takes to cause injuries to passengers and endless worry for families. The doctor’s appointments, surgeries, time off work, and more could’ve all been avoided.

Thousands of auto accidents happen every year leaving surprised passengers and cautious drivers with injuries and stress. With this number in mind, it may seem like not much is in your control. However, what is within your control is how you handle your car accident injuries. 

Take control of your recovery and fight back.

You were injured because of someone else’s road negligence. Call one of our personal injury lawyers and fight for the financial compensation you need and deserve. Your health is worth it.

We’re Advocates for McHenry County & Boone County

In 2012 in McHenry County, Illinois there were 4,708 reported auto accidents. This means thousands of families were affected and their lives disrupted. If your family has been affected by a car wreck injury or fatality, you understand the disruption we’re talking about. Regardless of how the car crash happened–rear-end collision,head-onn accident, overturned vehicle, etc.–an auto accident isn’t something you can recover from overnight, despite the continual pressure from the insurance companies.

After a car accident, you may think insurance companies are there to help you. That’s what you pay them for, right? You pay them to cover the injuries and the damage when accidents occur. Their financial assistance may not be what you need or deserve, especially when it is coming from the accident causer’s insurer. Know that you’re not receiving everything you need nor what you deserve.

As car accident injury attorneys at Franks Gerkin McKenna, we’re here to make sure you get the financial compensation you deserve after you or your family member has been injured in an auto wreck.

Was the accident my fault?

Because of the quick and volatile nature of car accidents, injured drivers frequently come out of it with one resounding question: did I cause the crash? Was it my fault? It’s human nature to ask those questions, but it is those particular questions that stop many people from seeking legal help when they truly need it.

Don’t hesitate to call a personal injury lawyer. Don’t assume fault for an accident before you know all of the facts. There are so many circumstances that could cause a car accident, and sometimes it is not just one person’s fault.

Automobile defects, poor weather conditions, construction, bad road conditions, and medical issues; there are many factors that could result in a car accident. It is extremely important that you speak with a personal injury attorney after your car crash, even if you really think that it was your fault.

There is absolutely no harm in contacting our car accident injury lawyers. None, zip, zero. We mean it. You will not need to pay us unless we win compensation for you. Call our Northern Illinois law office today and start your road to financial, emotional, and physical recovery.
