A personal injury and wrongful death law firm representing injured people and families of lost loved ones
As a growing number of motorists commute to and from Chicago and the greater metropolitan area from out-state Illinois and Indiana, the interstate corridors can become a perilous and deadly zone. Cases giving rise to transportation liability frequently involve rollovers, drunk driving incidents, and truck, motorcycle, pedestrian, and bus accidents.
There is important information to keep in mind with respect to roadway accidents. It is vital to gather evidence from the accident scene, including taking pictures and identifying witnesses. Like other types of personal injury cases, there is a statute of limitations that limits the time frame within which you can file a cause of action. However, in transportation liability cases, the statutes of limitations are often much shorter and in some cases, may even be less than a year. It is important to work quickly in these cases, and therefore, it is vital to consult with a legal professional as soon as possible after your accident.
Working with an attorney will help you avoid common pitfalls and increase your chances for a successful recovery. Attorneys at Coffman Law Offices PC are skilled at handling cases involving roadway injury and can guide you through complex processes, like filing an uninsured or underinsured claim against your own insurance company, an option that victims and attorneys often overlook.
