The car accident lawyers from Coplan & Crane are proud to serve Rockford, Illinois – the third largest city in the state. This city on the banks of Rock River in Winnebago County has been the site of industrial development for generations. The highly regarded Burpee Museum of Natural History and the renowned Anderson Japanese Gardens are here. It is also the hometown of Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees Cheap Trick.
Mostly, it is a city of hard-working people who are busy raising their families and living their lives. When someone is involved in an accident, however, their life can be turned upside-down in an instant. When their injuries are the result of an accident caused by another’s negligence, our Rockford car accident lawyers fight to help them recover financial compensation.
Personal injury attorneys who get results for Rockford’s injured
Our firm has been helping the injured in Illinois since 2005. We have the experience and the resources that get results. That’s why so many people turn to us when they’ve been hurt in a car accident. Our attorneys have helped many families in Rockford recover compensation through negotiated settlements and jury verdicts. Our results here include a $12 million medical malpractice settlement and a $15 million jury verdict after a fatal truck accident. Both set records in Winnebago County.
When you’ve been hurt in an accident caused by the negligence of another, it should be simple to recover compensation. The negligent party would take responsibility. The insurance company would determine the amount of damages you have suffered, including medical expenses and lost wages. Then the insurance company would take care of it.
Things are almost never that simple. Negligent parties typically don’t accept responsibility for what happened. They don’t admit that they did anything wrong. This could be because they don’t want to get in trouble, or they are afraid that their insurance premiums go up. They may even blame the injured person for causing the accident.
Don’t expect help from insurance companies, either. They are mostly concerned about the bottom line. In order to keep profits as high as possible, they focus on paying people who have been injured as little as possible. Sometimes, they may offer you a settlement soon after a car accident. It will be a lowball offer that doesn’t come close to covering the costs of all the damages you have suffered.
