Compensation in Car Accidents

Usually, when people are hurt in car accidents, their primary concerns revolve around health care costs. Remember, you have rights and options. By filing a personal injury claim or lawsuit, you can hold the appropriate people accountable and be made financially whole again.

Yes, it can get complicated. But we’ve been doing this for some time and recognize hidden losses as well as the obvious ones. The exact amount of possible compensation will largely depend on your individual case – the severity of injuries, past and future costs, and the overall impact on your life.

We pursue fair compensation for:

Why you need a lawyer

Why Do You Need a Lawyer After a Car Accident?

When people are injured in car accidents, they wonder if chasing compensation is worth the trouble. After all: “What can a lawyer really do?” and “Won’t the insurance company just pony up as they should?”

No, you’re not legally required to hire a lawyer after a car accident, but it sure makes the process easier and increases the likelihood you’ll be offered an adequate settlement.

Your attorney will…

Get you more money

It can be tempting to accept the insurance company’s first offer, but it’s rarely a good idea. These low-ball offers are designed to make your claim go away for the lowest payout possible. But your Staver attorney is always focused on maximizing your claim, so you can recover everything you’re entitled to.

Handle the insurance company

The insurance company needs to believe that you will take them to court. If they don’t, you won’t receive a fair offer. Insurance firms will immediately negotiate with us as there is no doubt that we will take your case to trial.

File a lawsuit

Only a lawyer with years of trial success will be able to navigate the court process for personal injury. The court process for personal injury can be complex and overwhelming for anyone. You need a lawyer with years of successful trial experience.

Types of Accidents

Motor Vehicle Accidents

At Staver Accident Injury Lawyers, we can help you with virtually any personal injury situation, but we have particularly broad experience with motor vehicle accidents.

Whether involving 2, 4, 6, or 18 wheels, we’ll always be there for you when you need us


Car Accidents

Car accident cases require a lot of evidence gathering. Police reports, debris fields, and eye witness accounts require a special set of investigative skills that we’ve honed for years. We know all the insurance companies. And they know we mean business. We know you’re hurting. When you call, you’ll always speak with a Staver attorney, not an assistant.


Accidents Involving Commercial Trucks

If you were in a car accident that involves a commercial truck, know that they are handled very differently. It’s like comparing apples and oranges. For example, commercial trucks are required by federal law to carry a substantial amount of insurance, which can be helpful during your claim. Data can also be collected from the electronic control modules (the black box), right away.

Deal W/Insurance


Settlement Offer




Settle or Trial

Crash Investigation

In order to craft a convincing argument and strategy for you, there needs to be solid evidence to back up your claims. And that’s where we come in. We’ll collect evidence – photos, videos, medical records, witness statements, expert testimony, and anything else that can paint the complete picture of the events leading up to the accident, which will also put you in a favorable light.

| Next Step: Get Your Car Repaired or Replaced

Get your car repaired or replaced

Part of the healing process includes sorting out your transportation. We can help you rent a car in the short-term under your own policy. We’ll make sure that all repairs are recorded for purposes of reimbursement. If you’ll need a new car we’ll see to it that you’ll get fair market value for your wrecked car.

| Next Step: Dealing with Insurance

We’ll Deal with Insurance Companies on Your Behalf

The claim process means plowing through a pile of paperwork, mail, and answering dozens of phone calls. An experienced accident lawyer will handle the whole process, from start to finish. And their involvement will greatly improve your chance of a win.

We do this type of work every day and can pre-empt any potential problems. We’ll communicate with the insurer, and make sure the insurer gets all of the information it needs without having to surrender your privacy.

| Next Step: Settlement Offer

Claim denial or settlement offer

After the investigation conducted by the insurance company— and while we conduct our own —it will either deny your insurance claim or approve it and make a settlement offer. If the claim is denied, you should receive a written explanation. We’ll then review and discuss appealing the denial, or pursuing your compensation in court. If you receive a settlement offer, we’ll analyze the specifics and make a counter-demand.

| Next Step: Negotiations

Participate in negotiations

Once we gather all the details and grasp the full scope of your injuries, we will request an amount that is in accordance with your losses and needs. Know that we’re staunch advocates for our clients. And we work extra hard to recover every single cent you deserve under the law.

| Next Step: Settle or Trial

Settle the case or go to trial

Most car accident claims won’t get anywhere near a courtroom, but we always prepare as if it can. This provides a bit of leverage on our part and paves the way for you to build the strongest possible case for the best possible result. If your case is not resolved through settlement, we will be ready and all set to go after it in court.

After the Accident

1. Get Medical Treatment

If you’re injured in the car wreck in Hinsdale, you may seek medical treatment from an emergency room. Serious injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), neck and back injuries, and whiplash should all be treated at a trauma center. Getting the appropriate medical treatment at the right time can make a difference in your car accident claim.

Adventist Hinsdale Hospital and RML Specialty Hospital are the key hospitals in the Cook County, DuPage County, and Hinsdale area.
