Aurora, IL Car Accident Attorneys

Skilled Representation for Victims of Auto Accidents in Northern Illinois

If you or someone close to you has been seriously injured in an auto accident in Illinois, you will need help navigating the complex road to justice. It is important to act quickly in order to preserve evidence and to understand your legal rights. During this financially and emotionally difficult time, insurance companies often take advantage of car accident victims by pressuring them to settle early and cheap, before they have a chance to appreciate the full extent of their injuries or learn the full scope of their rights. Before talking to the insurance company, be sure to speak with an experienced auto accident attorney.

At Kinnally Flaherty Krentz Loran Hodge & Masur P.C., we have more than a century of combined experience representing victims of automobile negligence throughout Illinois. We understand the physical and emotional toll auto accidents impose on individuals and families. Using our experience and skill, we hold responsible parties accountable and ensure that victims receive full, fair and just compensation. Our attorneys will fight tirelessly and aggressively to protect your interests, even against the largest and most well-funded adversaries. The insurance company has strong and talented lawyers. So should you.

Common Causes of Auto Accidents

In Illinois, senseless car accidents occur on a daily basis, and many of them involve fatalities or serious injuries. Some of the most common reasons auto accidents occur include:

  • Speeding/Aggressive Driving
  • Inattentive/Distracted Driving
  • Texting/Phone Use
  • Driving While Intoxicated
  • Careless Driving in Poor Weather Conditions
  • Mechanical Defects
  • Driver Fatigue

Motor vehicles are lethal instrumentalities, and negligent driving endangers everyone else on or near the roadway, including passengers, other drivers and pedestrians. When careless driving leads to accidents and serious injuries, it is important to hold the responsible drivers accountable so that victims will be fully compensated and society properly protected.

Experience Inside and Outside the Courtroom

In order for auto accident victims to be fully compensated or made whole, the attorney representing them must have a strong track record of successfully trying such cases in court. Unless your attorney is an experienced trial lawyer, the insurance company will have little incentive to offer a fair and just settlement. It is only the credible threat of trial that keeps the insurance company honest, and the threat is only credible if your lawyer is an experienced trial lawyer.

At Kinnally Flaherty Krentz Loran Hodge & Masur P.C., our attorneys are among the best trial lawyers in Illinois. That recognition allows us to obtain favorable settlements without trial and, in some cases, without litigation. However, if the insurance company fails to do what is right voluntarily, we are ready to aggressively pursue justice inside the courtroom. Either way, all our cases are handled on a contingency basis; meaning that we assume all the risk and no money is owed unless we recover damages on your behalf.
