What To Do After An Accident Caused By Another Person?

There are many situations where people may suffer serious, devastating injuries. Even though these are often referred to as "accidents," this can be a misleading term, since someone is usually to blame for an injury. A person may behave negligently and fail to take other people's safety into account, or they may even intentionally cause harm to others. When one person is responsible for someone else's injuries, the victim may take steps to recover compensation for their damages. To ensure that these matters will be handled correctly, victims will need to secure representation from a skilled and experienced personal injury attorney.

The law firm of Grauer & Kriegel, LLC believes in protecting the rights of injury victims and ensuring that they will be able to recover from their injuries and move on following a difficult experience. With more than 40 years of experience in personal injury cases, our lawyers understand the complex legal issues that victims may need to address and the steps that can be taken to demonstrate that someone else was responsible for their injuries. We believe in fighting for our clients' interests at all times, whether that involves negotiating settlements with insurance companies or pursuing lawsuits in court. Our goal is to help injury victims resolve their cases successfully so that they will have the resources they need throughout the rest of their lives.

Representing Personal Injury Victims in Elgin

A serious injury can affect a victim and their family in many ways. Depending on the types of treatment needed following an injury, a person may rack up massive medical bills. Even if a victim has health insurance, they may be charged for multiple types of medical expenses, including ambulance transportation, emergency room treatment, overnight stays in a hospital, emergency surgery, additional surgical procedures, medications, ongoing medical care, and physical therapy. Covering the costs of medical treatment can be difficult even in the best of times, but if an injury affects a victim's ability to work, their family may face additional financial difficulties.

By pursuing a personal injury claim or lawsuit, a victim and their family can make sure they will be able to address the effects of a serious injury. They may be able to recover compensation that will address the financial impact of an injury, as well as the ways they have been personally affected, such as the pain and suffering they have experienced, emotional trauma for a victim and their family members, and loss of enjoyment of life.

Our lawyers can assist with multiple types of personal injury cases, including:

  • Automobile accidents, which may occur due to driver negligence, such as distracted driving, drunk driving, speeding, or other traffic violations, or because of defective auto parts or dangerous roads.
  • Truck accidents in which drivers of commercial vehicles collide with others. Multiple factors may be to blame for commercial truck crashes, including driver fatigue, overweight trucks, mechanical problems, or driver error.
  • Pedestrian accidents, which are often caused by drivers who fail to pay attention to the road or violate traffic laws, leading them to strike people on foot.
  • Premises liability cases in which a person is injured while visiting someone else's property. Property owners may be liable for injuries that occurred because of their negligence, including slip and fall accidents and dog bites.
  • Wrongful death lawsuits in which a person's surviving family members pursue compensation for damages they have suffered because their loved one was killed due to someone else's negligence or wrongful actions.
