If you were injured in a car accident, your most important steps are:
NEVER speak with the insurance company. NEVER sign any papers with the insurance company. NEVER give a statement to ANY insurance company. You need an advocate by your side.
Once you’re healthy enough to do so, it’s important to contact an attorney who will represent you. The attorney should have experience. They should have a proven track record for getting results in auto accident cases.
Regardless of whether you were in a big accident with major injuries, or a fender bender and the injuries are minor, you should contact a car accident attorney to discuss the incident. If you were harmed due to another driver’s negligence, you are entitled to compensation for your injuries.

Trapp & Geller car accident attorneys have extensive experience in dealing with motor vehicle and car accident cases, including but not limited to:
Uninsured and underinsured driver accidents: An increasing number of drivers in Illinois do not have enough insurance to cover your medical bills and properly pay for your injuries. In these cases, our attorneys will look for other sources of compensation to get you money. We will look to go through your own insurance, called Underinsured Motorist Coverage, to get your money. This does not affect your coverage or your premiums and is an effective way to get money for your injuries. These underinsured motorist cases have their own special laws, so it’s important to contact an experienced attorney to handle these cases. Trapp & Geller has achieved millions in underinsured and uninsured benefits on behalf of our clients.
Drunk driver accident and dram shop accidents: Victims of drunk drivers may be entitled to punitive damages, which are damages beyond your actual losses. The attorneys at Trapp & Geller may be able to actually sue the bar or tavern that sold the alcohol that caused the other driver to get drunk or intoxicated as another way to get you money for your injuries. In these types of cases, doing an immediate investigation is important, so you should immediately call an attorney for help.
Distracted drivers: Distracted drivers and texting are constant threats on the roadways today. With Internet and social media available while people drive, there are many distracted drivers causing serious accidents. Talking and texting on cellphones have become a leading cause of accidents in Illinois. If you were injured by a distracted driver, you are entitled to compensation for your injuries. Cellphone records can provide compelling evidence in these cases, and the attorneys at Trapp & Geller know how to get these records to win your case.
Hit-and-run drivers: If the other driver hit you and fled the scene, your insurance policy for your own vehicle can provide coverage for your injuries. Even if you were a pedestrian or on a bike, the attorneys at Trapp & Geller can maximize your recovery by using your uninsured and underinsured coverage to get you money.
Pedestrian injuries: Obtaining compensation can be an uphill battle for pedestrians who are injured in accidents. Drivers of motor vehicles often attempt to shift blame to the person on foot.
Bike accidents: As a bicyclist, you have the same right to the roadway as people in motor vehicles. Unfortunately, drivers of four-wheeled vehicles often fail to yield to people on bikes.
Boat collisions: Accidents on lakes and rivers often end in tragedy. Alcohol is often a factor.
