GWC’s injury lawyers have achieved successful outcomes in claims for virtually every type of car accident, including:
Speeding can result in some of the most devastating car accidents. Speeding is a factor in roughly one-third of all car crash deaths in the United States, with over 13,000 people across the country dying each year in high-speed collisions.
Even when high-speed accidents are not fatal, they often result in devastating injuries, including broken bones, burns, scars, disfigurement, loss of limbs, brain trauma, and paralysis. Injuries of this caliber threaten financial ruin for many families, with the prospect of skyrocketing medical bills coupled with a loss of income. If you have been the victim of a car accident with a speeding driver, you need attorneys who will stop at nothing to ensure that you and your loved ones are made whole. Let our Rockford car accident lawyers help you obtain full compensation for all your damages, including physical injuries, emotional trauma, lost wages, pain and suffering, and ongoing impairment.
When motor vehicles collide with each other head on, the impact can be tremendous. Head-on crashes are statistically the most common type of fatal car accident. Though only two percent of collisions occur head on, they represent over ten percent of driving fatalities.
Even non-fatal head-on crashes can cause some of the most punishing injuries imaginable, including damage to the spinal cord and brain. These injuries can have a longstanding negative impact on both victims and their families. They may require ongoing medical treatment and hinder the activities of daily living.
The costs of serious head-on collision injuries can far exceed the economic resources of most households, especially when there is also a loss of income. Families in these circumstances often turn to an injury lawyer to make sure that those who caused these catastrophic injuries are held financially responsible. Our Rockford car accident attorneys will put the needs of you and your loved ones first so that we can get you the compensation necessary to secure your future.
While increased public awareness about the scourge of driving drunk has thankfully led to steadily declining rates, drunk driving is still far too common, leaving many innocent victims in its wake.
There are more than a million DUI arrests in America each year, and this number likely represents only about one percent of all drunk driving incidents. Every day in the United States, about 28 people die in car accidents. This translates to one drunk driving death every 53 minutes, and the number of non-fatal injuries is even higher. And because their impaired judgment and dulled motor skills cause drunk drivers to engage in some of the riskiest behaviors on the road, the injuries that may result from drunk driving accidents can be cataclysmic.
If you have been injured by a drunk driver, consider retaining an attorney who knows how to maximize the value of your settlement, like the Rockford car accident lawyers at GWC. We have decades of experience fighting for those who have been seriously hurt or killed because of drunk drivers.
Distraction is one of the leading causes of serious traffic accidents, both in Rockford and throughout the country. By one estimate, distracted driving is a factor in approximately 52 percent of car accidents. While distraction can come in many forms, negligent cellphone use has become an especially prominent cause of distracted driving in recent years. Nearly two-thirds of drivers report talking on the phone while driving, almost one-third text or email behind the wheel, and about one-fourth of drivers who have been car accidents were reportedly using their phones within a minute before impact.
When drivers do not pay attention, bad things are likely to happen. Distracted drivers may miss critical objects and events on the road or abandon control of the vehicle, all of which can significantly raise the risk of a serious car accident. Distracted drivers put themselves, their passengers, and everyone else around them in jeopardy, and it can happen in an instant. If a driver who is going 55 miles per hour looks away for five seconds to send a text, he or she is effectively traveling the length of a football field with his or her eyes closed. This recklessness can have dire consequences. According to the National Highway Transportation Administration, distraction is a factor in roughly ten percent of all fatal motor vehicle crashes and 18 percent of all crashes causing injury.
Let the car accident attorneys at GWC help you build a successful claim if you have been injured by a distracted driver. For example, we can subpoena a defendant’s cellphone records in order to assemble objective proof of distraction at the time of a crash. Don’t let a distracted driver’s insurance carrier distract you from contacting us today to get the full compensation you deserve.
If you or a loved one has been hurt in a motor vehicle crash, contact GWC today, where we will always fight to get you the maximum compensation for your injuries, both inside and outside of the courtroom.
