Representing Passengers Injured in Illinois Auto Accidents
Oftentimes, the victims of auto accidents are the passengers of the vehicle, who can suffer serious injuries and even death. According to the Illinois Department of Transportation, 22,812 passengers were injured in auto accidents in 2011 alone.
The Chicago auto accident attorneys at Cogan & Power, P.C. focus on helping persons who are injured in Illinois auto accidents, including injured passengers, recover the compensation that they deserve. We have considerable experience representing the victims of a wide variety of auto accidents involving negligence, including distracted driving accidents, alcohol-related accidents, head-on collisions, and rear-end accidents.
Money Damages for Passenger Injuries
Like any person who is injured by a negligent motorist in an auto accident, if you sustained passenger injuries, you may be able to recover money damages for the following:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages (past and future)
- Property damages
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of normal life
In some cases, more than one motorist might share liability for your passenger injuries. In these situations, it is important to undergo a comprehensive factual investigation and legal analysis in order to determine the appropriate sources of liability. Because we focus on complex auto accident cases, our Chicago car crash lawyers are well-equipped to handle these legal complexities and negotiate with all of the insurance companies involved in the claim.
