Distracted driving — texting while driving, taking selfies while driving, even talking on a cell phone while driving — is a huge problem in Illinois and across the U.S. Yet despite all the warnings and research showing the dangers of distracted driving, people continue to make unwise decisions while operating a motor vehicle.

If you have been injured by a distracted driver, you need to be aware of your legal rights. Whether you were driving a car and were hit by a distracted driver, or if you were walking, running, or biking and were hit, you may be entitled to significant compensation. Schedule a consultation with Mr. Jasmer to learn about your options.

Were you or a loved one injured in an accident caused by a drunk driver? We understand how devastating these accidents can be, and we are committed to helping you recover.

We consult specialists when building drunk driving cases on behalf of injured clients. We seek information and help from accident reconstructionists, investigators, doctors, and others to help prove that the driver was intoxicated at the time of the accident.

Many clients wonder: Are there certain steps I should take after a car accident to secure my rights if I proceed with a personal injury claim?

Although the minutes and hours after a car accident are often a blur, there are a few important things to remember to do:

  • Seek medical attention, even if your injuries seem minor
  • Take photos of the accident scene
  • Document any evidence
  • Gather contact information of passersby and witnesses
  • Contact a lawyer as soon as possible

Being involved in an accident is troublesome enough when you factor in the legal, financial, and other issues it often involves. However, when the person who caused the accident was uninsured, the situation may feel hopeless.

We work with accident victims to manage a wide range of insurance-related issues. When the other driver had little or no insurance, your own uninsured motorist coverage may apply. Find out more about your insurance options.

Chicago is a very pedestrian-friendly city. Many residents choose to forego cars, taking advantage of various public transportation options. Others choose to bike and walk whenever possible.

Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents are all too common in Chicago. Motorists choose to disregard bikers, walkers and runners. When pedestrians are hit by a car or bus, the injuries tend to be very severe.
