Fighting for Auto Accident Victims in O’Fallon & Beyond

Statistics provided by the Illinois Department of Transportation have revealed that there were 6,475 auto accidents throughout St. Clair County in 2016, which resulted in 40 deaths and 2,503 injuries.

While law enforcement officials in the region have been working to reduce this number, they still cannot prevent drivers from performing negligent actions or acting irresponsibly when behind the wheel, which can put other motorists, passengers, and pedestrians in significant danger.

If you or a family member has been injured in a car accident caused by another individual, we may be able to assist you. We take on cases for people who have suffered such injuries as:

  • Airbag injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Broken glass injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Internal injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Passenger injuries
  • Skull fractures
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Whiplash injuries
  • Wrist injuries

These injuries may occur in accidents caused by:

Following any type of injury, it is imperative to seek immediate medical attention to assure your wounds are taken care of correctly and to avoid further injuries. It is also helpful for our attorneys, as these medical documents can be used in the court of law to formulate a case against the party that caused the accident.
