Waukegan Personal Injury Lawyer
A car accident can turn your life upside down. From a wrecked car to expensive medical treatment to lost wages, your financial situation can take a turn for the worst. You may also face a diminished quality of life and difficulties earning a living in the future. But the Waukegan car accident attorneys at Staver Law Group are here to help. Our goal is to help our clients get back on their feet after an auto accident.
Waukegan is the seat of Lake County. Every year, around 12,000 accidents occur within the county, causing over 3,000 injuries and approximately 30 deaths. As of August 2015, 17 people have died on the roads of Lake County. If you or one of your family members are among these victims, you may need to hire a Waukegan personal injury lawyer to recover damages from those responsible for the accident.
Highway 173 in north Lake County is one of the nation’s most most dangerous intersections and roadways. A two-lane road that handles the same amount of traffic as a major roadway, Highway 173 was the scene of 30 fatal accidents between 1994 and 2008. Road safety experts recommend avoiding dangerous roads and intersections, but this is not always an option. And during rush hour, otherwise safe intersections and roads become so congested that signals can no longer safely manage traffic.
Further, weather conditions can make safe roads exceptionally dangerous. In northern Illinois, the winter weather is harsh and unpredictable. Road surfaces can quickly ice over, and snow and sleet can suddenly reduce visibility. When these conditions occur at night or during rush hour, the risk of getting into an accident is such that it’s best to stay off the road. But sometimes, drivers don’t have a choice.
Drivers get exposed to unacceptable risks on the road, and when an accident happens, they may face difficulties in getting compensation for their injuries. Insurance companies are experts in reducing settlement amounts in order to increase their own profits. The attorneys of Staver Law Group, however, are experienced in helping accident victims succeed in the insurance claim process.
If insurance companies refuse to settle for the amount our clients deserve, we’ll take the case to court. Our Waukegan car accident lawyers are skilled trial strategists who will gather the evidence necessary to support our client’s claim, and build arguments to convince a jury that they are deserving of compensation.
We at Staver Law Group are proud of our ability to get our clients the compensation they deserve. But our greatest source of pride is how we treat our clients. Unlike other law firms, when our clients call us they are guaranteed to talk to the Waukegan personal injury lawyer who is working on their case – no matter what time they call. We don’t waste our clients’ time by putting them on the line with paralegals, administrative staff, or other attorneys who may not know the details of the case.
Our clients don’t pay us a cent unless they win their case, and the initial consultation is free. If you want to work with competent, dedicated, and compassionate Waukegan car accident lawyers, give Staver Law Group a call at .
