If you have been injured in a car accident, it's important to talk to an experienced car accident lawyer before you accept a settlement offer. Your lawyer will calculate your economic and non-economic damages to determine the approximate value of your case. Your car accident attorney will take into account all of your medical expenses, lost income, rehabilitation costs, and pain and suffering to estimate what a fair settlement will be.

Larger vehicles usually result in tragic pedestrian accidents. Why? The initial impact throws the pedestrian to the ground, and the vehicle runs over the pedestrian.

To determine compensation for damages, the injury claim must be investigated and evaluated by an insurance claims adjuster.
In Illinois, Dram Shop laws hold all establishments that serve alcohol to customers accountable for their actions.
