Chicago Car Accident Attorney
Illinois motor vehicle accidents affect all segments of our society and can result in terrible injuries like traumatic brain injuries, chronic back problems, spinal cord injuries and even death. The Chicago Car Accident Attorneys at SHEA LAW GROUP have seen a trend in recent years for insurance companies to adopt a blanket policy to undervalue and to undercompensate for car accident victims in order to save money. Car crash victims may have been paying insurance premiums for years only to find that when they really need help, these corporations are only looking out for their bottom line. The personal injury attorneys at SHEA LAW GROUP have handled thousands of cases where insurance companies are involved. We are not pressured by their tactics and as a result, will fight for fair compensation for your injuries and will often take companies to trial to maximize your recovery.
UNINSURED AND UNDERINSURED ILLINOIS MOTORISTS
Under Illinois law, all drivers are required to have car insurance. Unfortunately, not everyone follows the law and some people drive Chicago roads and highways without maintaining adequate insurance. If you have been in a car collision involving an uninsured driver, you will have to turn to your own insurance company to recover damages. In order to recover from your insurance company, you will have to show that the other driver was negligent– which is why it is important to retain an experienced car accident attorney.
