Southern Illinois Car Accident Lawyers

Specialized and Experienced Representation


A 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.

You may be in a hurry to settle your case as soon as possible on your own to recover money for medical bills, your car repairs, and help you make ends meet when your accident injuries keep you at home, unable to work. You are right to act as soon as possible, but unfortunately, the defendant's insurance company does not have your best interests in mind. They take advantage of your inexperience with Illinois car accident claims and your hurry to recover money to survive. Insurance companies have a book of tricks to try to trick you into settling for a low amount or avoid paying you altogether. Car accident injury victims who do not have a lawyer to represent them collect significantly less for their damages than victims with experienced car accident lawyers.

In order to get your case moving in the right direction and reach a fair and favorable settlement as soon as possible after being injured in a car accident in Southern Illinois, you must reach out to a car accident lawyer right away. The sooner you hire a lawyer to represent you in your car accident injury claim, the sooner they can begin working for you and collecting valuable evidence to build a strong case. The sooner we are on your case, the sooner we can begin negotiations and fight for a complete recovery for you and your family. Most importantly, you only have a limited time to file your claim and attempt to collect damages in your car accident injury case. In the state of Illinois you have only two years from the date of the accident to file your claim.

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.

The car accident lawyers of Hassakis & Hassakis in Southern Illinois are personally invested in the well-being and case outcome of each of our clients and their families. We provide passionate, balanced, thorough representation to our Illinois car accident victims and are here to help you with your case every step of the way. Hire us now to let us begin fighting for you and demanding the compensation you need and deserve.
