Attorneys For People Hurt In Vehicle Accidents On I-88, I-55, I-355, I-80, I-90/94, I-57

Car accidents that occur on interstates or highways can be very different from those that happen on side streets and city roadways. Highway crashes often involve higher speeds, lane changes, sudden changes in traffic conditions and semi trucks. The likelihood of serious crashes and injuries is high on highways.

At Marker & Crannell, our Naperville car accident attorneys have successfully represented hundreds of people injured in highway auto accidents after crashes took place because of the negligence of others, including other drivers.

Crashes Happen On All Area Highways

We drivers, passengers and others, such as motorcyclists, who have been injured in car and truck accidents on interstates and interstate-like highways in Illinois, including:

  • I-55 and I-57
  • I-80 and I-88
  • I-90 and I-94
  • I-290 and 294
  • I-355
  • I-190

The Illinois Department of Transportation reports that there were 31,850 crashes on freeways and interstate-type roads in Illinois in 2021. (Data obtained from 2021 IDOT “Crash Facts”) if you have been injured, of course, you are most interested in how to recover compensation for your own losses. Our personal injury firm is here for these types of investigations and claims.

Determine The Cause To Establish Liability

If you or a loved one suffered injuries in a car or truck accident (involving a tractor-trailer, semi truck or any variety of truck) on a highway or interstate in Illinois, we will investigate on your behalf. We will start by looking for answers to key questions such as those below:

  • Was the other driver at fault?
  • Do I have a case?
  • Do I need an attorney?
  • What is my case worth?
  • How long does a car accident or truck accident case take?
  • Who should I report the crash to?
  • Who should pay for my vehicle repairs?
  • Who should pay for my totaled car, my insurance or another driver’s insurance? (The answer is not as simple as you might think)
  • Should I give a recorded statement to my or the other driver’s insurance company?
  • What is MedPay (PIP, no-fault medical coverage, medical payments coverage) and how should I use it?
  • Who pays my medical bills after a crash?
  • Should I go to court for any reason having to do with the other driver’s traffic ticket?
  • Should I go to the doctor even if I don’t consider my injuries serious?
  • What kind of doctor should I go to if I should see a medical care provider?

Car and truck accidents cause a wide range of injuries, from bumps and bruises to death. Some injuries are brand new injuries, while some are old injuries that have been aggravated by the crash. Depending on details such as insurance coverage, you have the right to pursue compensation for your injuries, regardless of whether you were previously injured.

Naperville Car And Truck Highway Accident Attorneys Representing The Injured

Common injuries from car accidents and truck accidents include injuries to the back (including the lumbar spine or thoracic spine) or the neck (such as the cervical spine). These are often initially diagnosed as a strain/sprain or “whiplash.” After failed conservative treatment, those initial diagnoses often turn into confirmed diagnoses of herniated discs, bulging discs, facet injuries, nerve impingement or annular tears.

Resulting symptoms of injuries may include radiculopathy causing numbness, tingling, or shooting pain into the shoulders, arms, hands, fingers or buttocks, legs, feet and toes.

Protect your rights by keeping a log of all effects of your injuries, beginning with the day of the accident and continuing until your legal case concludes.

We also see many head injuries from car crashes, like concussions, post-concussion syndrome, headaches, migraines and even traumatic brain injuries. Leg and knee injuries are common, from hitting the dashboard, center console or the door. We have seen patients impacted by broken legs, shattered kneecaps, meniscal tears and ligament injuries.

Depending on the position of the injured person’s arm at the moment of the crash, shoulder injuries are also common. Gripping the steering wheel tightly during an impact or having an arm on a window ledge can increase the likelihood of a shoulder injury like a rotator cuff tear, labral tear, biceps tear, or a broken arm or shoulder.

We also see cases involving airbag injuries like cuts and burns to the face, arm and torso. No matter what injuries the other driver caused, we can help you recover what you deserve.
