Head-On Collision Lawyers in Chicago
Chicago car accident attorney who knows how to get the job done right
One of the most serious types of car accidents are head-on collisions. These crashes cause serious injuries that often prove fatal. Survivors may be left with a permanent disability and require lifelong care. If you or a loved were hurt in a head-on collision, the car accident attorneys at Keating Law Offices, P.C. can help.
In a head-on collision, two vehicles traveling in opposite directions crash into each other, often at high speeds. The force of impact causes tremendous damage and leads to serious injuries for drivers and passengers. These injuries can include broken bones, internal injuries, traumatic brain injury or spinal cord injuries.
The injuries from a head-on collision can also impact victims financially. Medical expenses can become overwhelming. People injured in a head-on collision often can’t work, resulting in less income coming in. The usual bills – for housing, food, car payments, childcare – still need to be paid. Many families find it hard to make ends meet.
Attorneys who hold negligent drivers accountable
Head-on collisions happen because of negligence. A driver fell asleep at the wheel. A driver was texting while driving or was distracted by something else. Someone was driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The vehicle strays too far to one side, directly into the path of an oncoming car.
Holding negligent drivers accountable is not easy. They typically do not accept responsibility for causing the accident and won’t admit to doing anything wrong. Do not expect help from the insurance company. They are looking for reasons to pay you as little as possible. They may even try to blame you for being partially responsible for the crash.
That is why you need an experienced car accident attorney to fight for your rights. We know the challenges that come up when trying to move your claim forward. We know how to overcome these challenges to hold negligent drivers accountable and help you recover the financial compensation that you deserve.
Our legal team knows where to look for evidence to help prove the other driver was being negligent. This may include traffic camera or security camera footage. We carefully review accident reports, medical records and other important documentation. We identify and interview witnesses. If needed, we consult accident reconstruction experts.
Our firm will help you get the best possible outcome
Our attorneys are very familiar with the tactics insurance companies use to try to minimize your claim. They’ll question the extent of your injuries. They’ll claim your injuries were pre-existing. They’ll try to blame you for what happened. We get the facts to help you fight back against these tactics.
We focus on building strong cases that the insurance companies must take seriously. When they see that we put a lot of work into your claim and are prepared to fight for you all the way, they usually agree to start talking about a settlement. We’re not interested in making a quick deal that helps them save money.
Any resolution of your case must be one that meets your needs. This includes compensation for all medical expenses related to your injury, both now and in the future. It includes compensation for lost wages if you couldn’t work, and compensation for other damages, such as pain and suffering. If they won’t settle, we’ll be ready to fight for you in court.
