Chicago car accident settlement
Chicago car accident attorney Barry Zlotowicz, just secured a recovery on behalf of a client injured in a bizarre car accident at a Chicago dry cleaners.
The Chicago car accident took place in 2013. Our client, a tailor, was seated at in her chair working on her sewing machine when an automobile driven by a young woman, hit the gas and drove her car through the front window of the cleaners. The crash destroyed the front entryway and caused furniture, chairs and the sewing station to slam into our client. The client ended up on the ground fifteen feet from her work station. Our client sought medical attention that day at her local hospital where she was diagnosed with severe contusions/bruising. She then sought medical physical therapy/chiropractic treatment where she was diagnosed with a back strain/sprain.
After several months of treatment, our office approached the insurance company to obtain appropriate compensation. After a month of negotiating, our office obtained a recovery on behalf of our client that paid all her medical bills, paid her attorneys’ fees and also left her adequately compensated for her injuries.
In order to facilitate the settlement, meaning, to optimize our client’s recovery, our office was required to reduce her medical bills which we did by one-third. That put more money in our client’s pocket. In addition, we negotiated with Illinois Medicaid to resolve her bills paid by IDHS.
While most of the Chicago auto accidents we deal with are garden variety T-bone accidents or rear-enders, if you have been injured in any type of Chicago car accident, you should know that our office is well prepared to assist you in recovering for your pain and suffering.
