Des Plaines Auto Accident Lawyer

At Zneimer & Zneimer P.C., our experienced team of accident and injury attorneys represent residents of Des Plaines, and other cities throughout Illinois. Des Plaines, commonly referred to as the “City of Destiny,” is located within Cook County, Illinois. Our car accident attorneys have full awareness of the alarmingly high accident rate in Cook County, and as such it is our goal to seek justice for the residents of Des Plaines, and other Cook County Residents. We work diligently to provide high-quality service for people who are injured from car accidents through no fault of their own.

A car accident may occur in Des Plaines, just like any city, for a variety of reasons. Although it may seem apparent where the fault may lie for the resulting car accident, this is not always the case. Subsequent to determining the presence of a breach in standard of care, the injury lawyer must provide evidence that such breach was the legal and proximate cause of the car accident and its resulting injuries. This requires a determination that both the accident and the injuries would not have occurred but for the negligence of another person or persons. Our accident lawyers can explain how there may be multiple parties at fault, as well as assess the advantages and disadvantages of pursuing a claim against each. For example, often times there are situations where a car accident occurs with minimal injury, but that as a result of this injury, a more serious injury results, such as where a medical doctor fails to properly clean a wound before administering stiches. There are many considerations involved in evaluating car accident injuries, which are most appropriately directed at a Des Plaines personal injury attorney. Our team of Des Plaines accident lawyers have the experience necessary to overcome issues of causation that may be involved in your car accident.

Our attorneys understand that many car accidents happen unexpectedly, and that people often feel unprepared to deal with the aftermath. If you are struggling after an accident, it is important to get help. Injuries sustained in a car accident have the potential to be extremely severe. A common misconception amongst the injured is that medical bills associated with the accident must be submitted immediately after treatment is rendered. However, this is seldom the case. Your Des Plaines car accident attorney can discuss with you the possibility of providing your medical provider with what is called a ‘Letter of Protection.’ A letter of protection is an agreement between a Des Plaines injury attorney and your medical provider, in which both parties agree that medical bills need to be paid during the pendency of litigation, so long as compensation occurs upon recovery.

If you or a loved one were injured in a car accident in Des Plaines, Illinois, or another city in the greater Chicago area, the licensed accident lawyer of Zneimer & Zneimer, P.C. can evaluate your matter to determine the most suitable post-accident actions to take. For a free personal injury consultation, please contact our office at 773-516-4100.

Someone rear-ended my car last spring and I was injured. Peter and Sofia Zneimer and they staff were professional and were always available by phone. I knew that the insurance of the other driver wasn't very good but they were still able to settle my case promptly and I was satisfied with the money I received. Overall, a very good trusted experience. Natig M.

I have dealt with Sofia Zneimer since 2009. She is a great lawyer and has helped me tremendously in navigating the process of green card. She is a great resource to have by your side. She is easy to reach. She responds very quickly, which was very important for me. If she can’t answer the question the same day, she does let you know that she is working on it. I would have no hesitation in recruiting her. Hemant S.
