If you’ve been seriously injured in a vehicle accident, you may experience significant upheaval in your life, not to mention emotional distress and physical pain. Work with a law firm you can trust to tell the full story of what happened to you, how badly it has impacted your life already and what the journey ahead of you will look like. When you hire Pullano & Siporin, you hire a team of dedicated trial lawyers that works tirelessly to hold all liable parties accountable and maximize the compensation you are entitled to under the law.
At Pullano & Siporin, we represent people who have lost loved ones or suffered traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, lost limbs and terrible orthopedic injuries in car crashes. When you have been victimized by someone else, the emotional trauma you may feel can be overwhelming and that feeling is magnified by the fear one feels when realizing a legal battle is necessary to hold wrongdoers accountable. We understand the emotions victims feel after car accidents and we spend significant time sitting at our clients kitchen tables guiding and educating our clients through the justice system that is oftentimes foreign to them. Our mission is to be an unyielding advocate for our clients. An injury lawyer can only do that if they spend the time necessary to truly get to know what the client’s life was like before the injury, what their passions were, what their goals were and all the ways their life has been destroyed by an irresponsible driver. Every case our firm takes on is a priority, and our attorneys work hard to deliver the best possible results and to minimize the stress our clients might experience during the legal process.
In motor vehicle accident cases, you may be able to recover compensation for medical bills (past and future), lost wages, lost earning capacity, physical pain and suffering, mental anguish, scarring and disfigurement, loss of consortium and other types of damages. The amount and type of damages you can recover depends on the circumstances of your case.
In the state of Illinois there are 285,000 motor vehicle accidents each year, around half of which occur in Cook County. Two people die each day and 200 more are injured. In the Chicagoland area, there are usually eye witnesses and/or security video cameras that capture the events leading up to and at the time of the crash. After a crash, it is critical to talk to the eye witnesses early and obtain all videographic evidence before memories fade or the electronic data is over written. As needed, we also hire accident reconstruction experts to analyze the scene and the vehicles involved in order to obtain physical evidence that can be crucial to winning cases.
The vast majority of auto accident cases settle before they get to the litigation phase. However, there are some circumstances in which litigation is necessary if the insurance companyis unwilling to negotiate or if there is a dispute regarding the nature, extent and duration of a persons injuries. Just because a law suit is filed, does not mean a jury trial is imminent. Statistically, 98% of cases filed in the courts get resolved prior to a jury trial commencing.
