Advice On Chicago Auto Accidents 


 

Chicago Car Accident Lawyer


Auto accidents are probably the most frequent cause of personal injury. Often, the injuries incurred are severe, even leading to premature death. If you have suffered a personal injury in a car crash in Illinois, you need an experienced Illinois auto accident attorney to help ensure that you obtain the compensation you need to cover your losses.

At the Law Office of William S. Wojcik, Ltd., in Oak Lawn, Illinois, we have over 30 years' experience representing victims of personal injury suffered in auto accidents.

We represent auto accident clients throughout Cook County, including Oak Lawn, Evergreen Park, Alsip, Burbank, Chicago Ridge, Blue Island, Bridgeview, Palos Hills, Palos Heights, Palos Park, Hickory Hills, Worth, Western Springs, Crestwood, Orland Park, Oak Forest, Tinley Park, Homer Glen, Mokena, New Lenox and Frankfort.

What to Do If You HAVE BEEN in An Auto / Car Accident?


The immediate response of most auto accident victims is to contact their insurance carrier. Although your insurance carrier has a responsibility to compensate you for injuries received, they will not necessarily act in your best interests. Their primary objective is to pay as little as they have to pay. If you have been the victim of an auto accident in Illinois, you should contact an experienced Illinois auto accident lawyerbefore you enter into any settlement agreement with your insurance company.

At the Law Offices of William S. Wojcik, Ltd., we will utilize our skill and experience to ensure that you are adequately compensated for:

- Pain and suffering
- Disability and disfigurement
- Physical injuries
- Medical expenses, including rehabilitation costs
- Lost income or wages
- Loss of consortium or companionship

We handle all auto accident claims on a contingency basis. If we fail to obtain compensation for your auto accident injury, we will not charge you a fee.

Contact the auto accident injury attorneys at the Law Offices of William S. Wojcik to schedule a free consultation. We can schedule evening or weekend hours by appointment.
