Mundelein Personal Injury Lawyer
Mundelein is the fourth largest community in Lake County, Illinois (after Waukegan, North Chicago & Highland Park), with easy access to Chicago via the Metra North Central Line and I-94. Mundelein is a hub of automobile traffic given that it is also served by four major State Highways (Route 60, Route 45, Route 176 and Route 83) and the proposed extension of the Route 53 Tollway will pass through the western portion of Mundelein.
Unfortunately, given the number of major highways and roads serving Mundelein, car accidents are common occurrences in and around Mundelein. Accidents caused by automobiles can be caused by any number of reasons, such as:
- Driver distraction or impairment
- Mechanical failure (i.e., faulty brakes or tires)
- Hazardous road conditions and
- Reckless driving (i.e., speeding or disobeying traffic signs).
In 2010, Illinois banned the use of cell phones while operating a vehicle in school or construction zones unless used with a hands-free earpiece and banned the use of electronic devices to access the internet, text or e-mail while driving a motor vehicle. Unfortunately, despite the ban on these cellphone-related activities, many people continue to use their cellphones in illegal or negligent ways that cause accidents. Whatever the cause of the accident, Mundelein personal injury attorney, Bogdan Martinovich, can help you confidently state your claims in order to recover for the injuries or damages caused by a negligent motorist.
If you are left to deal with the aftermath of a car accident in Illinois on your own, you will fight an uphill battle, facing powerful insurance companies that would rather settle your claim quickly, than consider the individual merits of your case. But when you are armed with a well-prepared Mundelein personal injury attorney like Bogdan Martinovich, you have an ally in your corner who can talk the talk, negotiate with the insurance companies on your behalf and aggressively litigate your claims if necessary.
