Arlington Heights Auto SUV Crash Injury Lawyers

Each year, millions of people around the country are injured in motor vehicle accidents, including car crashes, truck crashes, and motorcycle crashes. While many car accident injuries are fairly minor, such as bumps, bruises, and muscle sprains, some are extremely serious and sometimes catastrophic. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that a car accident occurs every ten seconds in the United States, which means that thousands of injuries are caused in an average day.

At Newland & Newland, LLP, our attorneys have more than 60 years of combined experience in the practice of personal injury law. With our background and knowledge of the law, we are equipped to handle car accident cases and to get you full compensation for the injuries that you have sustained. We will take over the legal details of your case so that you can focus on making a full physical and emotional recovery. Our team can even help facilitate your medical care and make arrangements with your providers to wait for payment until you receive compensation in a settlement or verdict.

Protecting Your Rights in Rolling Meadows and Schaumburg

Most auto accident cases are decided on the legal principle of negligence. In the eyes of the law, negligence is a failure to act in a reasonable manner to ensure safety and to prevent injury. A person who causes a car accident through negligence may be responsible for paying for any damages caused as a result, including property damage and bodily injuries. There are many different ways in which a driver could act negligently, including but not limited to:

  • Speeding;
  • Driving too slowly for the traffic conditions;
  • Drunk driving or drugged driving;
  • Failing to use turn signals;
  • Driving while fatigued;
  • Following too closely;
  • Texting or using their cell phone;
  • Failing to account for weather conditions; and
  • Ignoring or disregarding traffic signals or signs.

Other factors, such as defective auto parts, poorly maintained vehicles, and malfunctioning traffic lights could also lead to injury-causing accidents.

Determining What Happened

When you choose Newland & Newland, LLP to help you with your car accident case, we will go right to work in investigating the crash. We will review police reports, speak with witnesses, and gather all available information to determine what happened and who should be held financially responsible. Our attorneys will also sit down with you and listen to your side of the story so that we can gain a full understanding of how your injuries are affecting your life. These steps allow us to start building a case designed to get you maximum compensation for your injuries.

Our attorneys obtained $205,000 for a client who suffered a broken humerus in a single-car crash.

Following your accident, you may start getting calls from insurance companies looking to settle quickly. You should never agree to a settlement or even give a statement to the insurance company without consulting with your attorney. Fast settlements are often insufficient to meet your long-term needs, especially if your injuries are serious. We will negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf from a position of strength, and we will continue to fight until you get the compensation you deserve under the law.
