TYPES OF AUTO ACCIDENTS
Unfortunately, car accidents are a typical occurrence on our roadways. Every year, approximately three million people in the United States are injured in car accidents, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). According to the Illinois Department of Transportation, over 900 persons were killed in traffic incidents in Illinois in 2011. On both highways and residential streets, the following are the most common forms of accidents:
Collisions that occur head-on
Collisions from the side
Clashes with the back of the vehicle
While vehicle insurance companies are obligated to compensate you for these and other types of car accidents, they frequently take a long time to process your claim in the hopes that you will become dissatisfied and accept a lower settlement than you deserve. Our

INJURIES CAUSED BY CAR ACCIDENTS ON ILLINOIS HIGHWAYS
If you've been in an accident, it's critical to get medical help right away. While many injuries are immediately apparent, others, such as neck and back problems, might take days or weeks to manifest. Even if the cars involved were moving at modest speeds and the impact damage appears to be minor, long-term bodily and psychological stress can be lurking.
OUR EXPERIENCED ROCKFORD AUTO ACCIDENT ATTORNEYS STRIVE FOR COMPLETE COMPENSATION FOR CLIENTS SUFFERING FROM SHORT- OR LONG-TERM INJURIES SUCH AS:
Head and back injuries are common. In an accident, the most common injury suffered by drivers and passengers is a closed head injury. Concussion or brain injury can occur when the brain is rattled inside the skull. Sprains, disc injuries, thoracic spine injuries, lumbar fracture radiculopathy (nerve damage), and lumbar spine injuries are common back ailments that don't always show up right away.
Neck injuries are common. Neck injuries are prevalent in vehicle accidents and can range from minor strains to catastrophic disc damage and cervical radiculopathy. Because adrenaline and endorphins flood through your body after an accident, you may not realize you have a neck injury right away.
Trauma to the mind. According to studies, people who are engaged in even minor vehicle accidents are more likely to experience long-term psychological trauma, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), panic attacks, depression, flashbacks, and nightmares. Keeping a journal of your post-crash experiences can assist our Rockford auto accident attorneys to determine how seriously the event has affected you.
