Recent car accident in Illinois settlement
Barry Zlotowicz, an Illinois car accident attorney, recently obtained a recovery on behalf of an NIU college student for injuries suffered in a car accident in Illinois.
The accident, which occurred in Lee County in 2012 occurred on a snowy day on the interstate. Our client was the passenger in a car heading southbound when he was rear ended by an 18 wheeler/tractor trailer. Our client was spun around and collided with a third automobile. Our client was thrown back and forth within the car hitting his shoulder and other extremities on the interior of the car. Our client sought immediate medical care at an emergency room for injuries including a shoulder strain, laceration on his leg, eye contusion and back pain.
After our investigation was complete and our client obtained sufficient medical care including treating with an orthopedist, obtaining a MRI and completing physical therapy, our office obtained a recovery on his behalf that paid off all his medical bills, paid his attorneys’ fees and still left him with a significant recovery to assist in paying his educational expenses.
The settlement did not end our participation in the matter however. Most victims of a car accident in Illinois do not realize that the medical providers who provided medical assistance and/or the insurance company that paid for medical bills want to be reimbursed for their expenses. As such, in this case as in most cases, our office spent a considerable amount of time negotiating our client’s medical bills and the subrogation claim by the insurance company by one-third. That resulted in substantial savings for the client.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident in Illinois, you may be able to seek compensation for your injuries and damages. While it’s no guarantee of recovery, our office has had great success in recovering on behalf of our personal injury clients.
