Have you ever stopped to consider how many car accidents happen every day? Car accidents are so common that only the most serious are mentioned on the television news or in the newspaper. A car crash, however, does not need to make headlines in order to change the course of your life. On an average day in Illinois, more than 200 people are injured in car accidents—or about one every nine minutes. This totals about 80,000 injured victims every year, each of whom must figure out how to deal with the consequences of their injuries.
If you have recently suffered injuries in a car crash, you may be entitled to collect compensation to help you put your life back together. At Fotopoulos Law Office, we can provide the skilled guidance and aggressive representation you need every step of the way.Skilled Personal Injury for Car Accidents in Northern Illinois
Attorney John S. Fotopoulos works closely with clients who have been injured in all kinds of car accidents. He and his team understand that a devastating accident can happen in a matter of moments, especially when negligence is involved. At our firm, we handle accidents caused by:
- Speeding and aggressive driving
- Drunk driving or drugged driving
- Using a cell phone or texting while driving
- Distracted driving
- Driver fatigue or inexperience
- Defective auto parts
- Inadequate maintenance of the vehicle
When negligent actions such as these cause injury to a victim, the victim has the right to seek financial compensation. Obtaining compensation, however, is rarely easy. The process can be complicated, time-consuming, and stressful, especially for a victim who is trying to heal physically. Our team understands the challenges you may be facing in the wake of a car accident, and we will do everything we can to make the claims process run smoothly for you.Putting the Pieces Together

We take the time to listen to you and to understand how your injuries are affecting your life. This allows us to begin building a case designed to get you the compensation you need to move forward. If a quick resolution is possible, we will work towards that goal, but we will not sacrifice your needs in favor of a fast settlement. We will advocate on your behalf in pursuit of compensation for:
- Medical bills, including future care needs
- Lost wages
