Lake County Car Accident Injury Attorney

Lawyer for Injured Car Crash Victims in Grayslake, Gurnee and Waukegan

Waukegan Car Accident Lawyer

Being involved in a car accident is a frightening experience. Things can quickly become even worse when you realize that you have been injured. When you are hurt in a motor vehicle crash, your top priority should be obtaining proper medical care. Doing so right away will increase your chances of making a full recovery. In the weeks and months after your accident, you will probably begin to realize the financial impact of your injuries. At The Law Office of Brian M. Laughlin, PC, we know that the action you take—or fail to take—after a car crash could affect your ability to recover damages from the party or parties who caused the accident.

Libertyville Injury Attorney Protecting Your Rights

In the moments after a car accident, a few simple steps could have a significant effect on the outcome of your case:

  • Get to a safe place and do your best to move your vehicle out of travel lanes. Then, contact the police and report the crash. The formal police report is likely to be important in your pursuit of damages;
  • Seek medical attention. If paramedics are dispatched to the scene, allow them to examine you, but remember that certain injuries, such as whiplash, may not be noticeable until several hours or days later;
  • Contact an experienced personal injury lawyer at our firm. We will go right to work gathering evidence, speaking to witnesses, and determining who may be liable for the crash.

Your attorney will also assist you in notifying your insurance company and that of any other involved drivers.

Former Insurance Defense Lawyer Now on Your Side

With more than 25 years of legal experience, Attorney Brian M. Laughlin has helped many car accident victims recover damages for their injuries. Early in his career, Mr. Laughlin worked as an insurance defense attorney, advocating on behalf of businesses and companies to help them limit liability and avoid large payouts. That experience taught him a great deal about the tactics and techniques insurance companies use—often at the expense of injured victims. As a personal injury lawyer in private practice, Mr. Laughlin now uses that knowledge against the insurance companies in pursuit of justice for his clients.
