Joliet is only about 40 miles from Chicago. Automobile and truck traffic travels through Joliet and Will County on Interstate Highways 55 and 80. Even U.S. Route 66 winds through the area. Given their proximity to Chicago, Joliet and Will County are no strangers to serious injuries and deaths caused by motor vehicle accidents. Our motor vehicle accident lawyers in Joliet have extensive experience in the representation of both individuals and families in personal injury and wrongful death cases throughout Illinois. Our clients include drivers and occupants of passenger vehicles, commercial truckers, motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians.
If you were injured in a motor vehicle accident in or around Joliet, make sure that 911 is notified and a police officer comes to the scene to investigate. That officer will draft a written accident report that you can obtain for a nominal fee a few days later. If you fail to call 911, and no accident report is created, it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to recover any compensation at all from the insurer of the person who caused your injuries and damages.
If you suffered serious injuries in your accident, ask the 911 operator to also dispatch paramedics to the scene. They can examine and stabilize you there and transport you to an emergency room for further care and treatment. As soon as possible after that, we encourage you to contact us to arrange for a free consultation and case review with one of our motor vehicle accident lawyers from Joliet. We’re excellent listeners, and we’ll be pleased to answer your questions too. After that, we’ll be in a position to advise you on every legal option that is available in the pursuit of compensation for your injuries and damages. Report your accident to police, seek immediate medical attention and arrange for that free consultation right away.
