Get the Help You Deserve After a Northern Illinois Auto Accident
We hear the reports every day of the mayhem on our roadways. Every time you get behind the wheel of your car and go somewhere, you do so knowing that an accident is a real possibility. But when it actually happens to you, suddenly that possibility turns to reality and you may be facing serious injury or worse.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a Northern Illinois auto accident, you should ask yourself some questions:
- Did someone else’s mistake cause the crash?
- Was there a serious injury and/or loss of property?
- Will insurance provide you with what you need to cover the costs of medical treatment and loss of income?
At The Fisk & Monteleone Law Firm in Rockford, we know exactly what you are going through and have successfully represented many others who have the same questions.

The Illinois Traffic Accident Statistics Are Sobering

- There were 281,788 motor vehicle crashes on Illinois roadways in 2011.
- Of these, 84,172 people were injured that year.
- 918 of our citizens lost their lives in these accidents.
- The cost of all of these accidents was approximately $5.5 billion.
- Each injury cost between $22,700 and $70,300.
- Each fatality cost an estimated $1,432,800.
But when you are involved in a crash, statistics mean nothing. A serious Rockford car accident can turn your world upside down, especially when it could have been prevented.
Don’t Give Up Your Rights
At the Fisk & Monteleone Law Firm, we know that too many times, victims of serious Illinois auto accidents do not understand their rights. Instead of getting the legal help they need, many simply accept what the insurance companies tell them and end up with much less than they deserve.
You must keep in mind that insurance companies, both your own and the other drivers’, are in business to make money. They will sometimes try to get you to settle for much less than you need to cover your loss. At a time like this, you should find someone who understands how to use the laws that protect you to represent your best interests.
