Every time I’ve called, I’ve been asked how I’m feeling and how my medical treatment is going first.

When you hire a Staver lawyer in Naperville, you’ll get an attorney with compassion. We make sure that you understand the law, your rights, and your legal options. We will never leave you hanging.
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.
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.
Did you know that of those who don’t hire a lawyer for their claim, only 51% receive a payout? And of those who did, 91% received a payout. These figures have been verified by Martindale-Nolo Research’s 2017 personal injury study.
Lawyers rarely settle for the insurer’s first offer. Your lawyer will carefully review the facts of your case to determine the appropriate ballpark for fair compensation. If the first offer is not enough, your Staver lawyer will participate in negotiations to reach a fair and equitable solution.
Insurers are known to avoid going to trial. It saves them time and money to settle out of court. But if you don’t pursue legal action, or at least threaten to, the insurer will be far less inclined to settle.
You may not be comfortable filing for yourself or threatening an insurance adjuster with legal action. We’ll handle it for you.
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.
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.
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.
Some common types of car accidents we have handled include rear-end collisions, head-on collisions, and t-bone accidents. We can also help with distracted driving accidents and drowsy driving accidents. If you were involved in a drunk driving accident, we will work with police to collect evidence.
There are some common causes behind them, including speeding, violation of traffic rules, dangerous lane changes, and failure to yield. We understand that the cause of an accident can impact who is at fault and how to handle a case.
In a violent impact, your body is exposed to such injuries as broken bones, sprains and strains, neck and back injuries, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), and more. If you suffer emotional distress after an auto accident in DuPage County, you might even have PTSD. Contact our law offices for help.
We are bold, relentless, and passionate in how we carry out our claims process. As a result, you can be more confident in the potential outcome.
After an accident, you’ll need to take a number of critical steps. We’ll guide you through the process so you’ll stay up to speed the whole way, even through filing a civil lawsuit in the DuPage County Circuit Court, if necessary.
Besides filling out the required forms, your Staver attorney will put together a packet. This includes supporting documentation and a demand letter with a request for compensation.
We’ll also supply medical records, invoices regarding property damage, photos, witness statements, and other information.| Next Step: Get Your Car Repaired or Replaced
You and your family rely on your vehicle to get around. We will help you get your car repaired or replaced as soon as practical.
And if you need a vehicle in the meantime, we’ll help arrange for a rental so you can start getting around again as soon as possible with minimal disruption.| Next Step: Dealing with Insurance
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
After the insurance company investigates— 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 detailed reason in writing. We’ll 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
The insurance company will take the time to look over your packet and carefully scrutinize the details of your injuries and issues. They will then make an offer to resolve your claim.
Our lawyers will assess the amount and won’t accept an offer that’s insufficient to compensate you for your losses. If the offer is low, we’ll continue to negotiate with the insurer to come to terms with a fair resolution.| Next Step: Settle or Trial
In some cases, we can’t reach a settlement with the negligent driver’s insurance company. It will be necessary to resort to court action. We’re prepared to give you legal advice and fight for your rights throughout every step of the civil lawsuit.| Next Step: Crash Investigation
Your top priority should always be to seek medical care. Don’t skip out on it because you’re afraid of the cost. We’ll pursue compensation for all of your medical bills.
