Auto/Truck Accidents

Southern Illinois Auto and Truck Accident Attorneys

More Than Just Car Accident Attorneys

i-autoA car accident happens in a split second, but the effects linger on. In addition to physical suffering, you have to contend with the financial problems that are caused by an auto collision including the medical bills, the costs of physical rehabilitation, medication expenses and the cost of repairing damages to your vehicle. This financial stress can leave a lot of people in dire straits.

Handling A Variety of Automobile Accident Cases

Don’t think for a moment that the other side does not retain and secure defense lawyers, investigators, adjustors, medical experts for its protection, etc. from the onset. In auto accident claims, the negligent driver’s insurance company takes immediate steps to limit its payout obligation, and in turn to minimize your recovery. Insurance companies typically do not want to provide you with any compensation. Their goal is to settle a case for as little as possible. Even in uninsured and underinsured motorist cases when you are seeking compensation from your own insurance company, you cannot ever expect your own company to have your best interests at heart.

Retention of a firm such as ours to aggressively investigate and represent you may be the only way to preserve your rights and survive the lingering effects of a car or truck accident. At the Mount Vernon law firm of Hassakis & Hassakis, P.C., we have been representing car accident victims in Southern Illinois since 1950. We can help you through this stressful time.

Representing those Injured in Truck Accidents

Truck accidents are generally not the same as car accidents. The injuries that result from a truck accident are usually catastrophic. This is because of the sheer size difference between massive trucks and the smaller vehicles with which they commonly collide. Victims of truck accidents, even those involving smaller trucks and delivery vans, tend to suffer serious injuries. Regardless of the severity of the injury, if it is the result of negligence, our law office is here to help.

There are different laws specifically geared towards operators of large trucking rigs. Truckers have specific regulations they have to follow and often have aggressive representation from the very beginning of an unfortunate collision involving injury or death. Our attorneys have the experience to represent you if you have been injured in a truck crash.
