When to Get a Lawyer After an Auto Accident

When Should You Get an Attorney For an Auto Accident?

At Strong Law Offices, we have the investigative resources needed to determine how motor vehicle accidents happen. Soon after a collision, we have a professional accident investigator on the scene. This person will measure skid marks, examine accident debris, inspect the damaged vehicles and conduct other investigations to determine how the accident happened. Seemingly insignificant items can reveal important clues as to what happened and who was responsible.

​A motor vehicle accident case involves more than just examining the wreckage. At our offices in Peoria, Springfield, Chicago, and Bloomington, our attorneys will review insurance coverage issues to identify all possible sources of compensation.

Most importantly, we will examine the effect the accident has had on your life. We will speak with your doctor or other medical experts to learn about your current and future medical needs. Strong Law Offices will work tirelessly to build a strong and successful case for you.

A Note About Truck Accident Cases

Investigators for trucking companies and their insurers have been known to destroy logbooks and other important evidence or attempt to put it out of the reach of plaintiff personal injury law firms.

At Strong Law Offices, we do not stand for such behavior. We aggressively seek out all relevant information concerning a truck accident, forcing defense law firms to provide driver logbooks, maintenance records, and other information. We then review it with a fine-tooth comb, looking for information that can support the case.

​At Strong Law Offices, we know the difference that a well-prepared legal case can make in our clients' lives. We will do everything we can to succeed for you.
