Illinois Truck Rearends Car on ExpresswayIt will vary a great deal depending on the nature of your injuries and other particular circumstances of your case.

If you have been involved in an accident with a truck or other commercial vehicle, the circumstances of your case are unique, as are your injuries and healing process. At Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC, our attorneys use a proven formula to determine the value of truck accident cases which takes into account the severity of your injuries, how long your healing will take, whether you suffered temporary or permanent disabilities, and if you will need additional treatment, rehabilitation, or surgical procedures in the future. Then we factor in the amount of compensation previous plaintiffs have received in situations similar to yours,

Our investigators will determine the insurance coverage carried by the trucking company and whether it has parent corporations or umbrella insurance policies that might be applicable to your claim. Once we have calculated the value of your claim, we can begin the negotiation process with the trucking company and its attorneys to try to reach a favorable out-of-court settlement. If they are unable or unwilling to provide adequate monetary compensation for your damages, we will build a strong case to present to a judge or jury.

How Long Does it Take to Resolve a Trucking Accident Case?

It will largely depend on the circumstances surrounding your case. These cases can be settled in as little as three months or take as long as three years, but on average most are resolved much sooner than that.

Further, the Illinois two-year statute of limitations restricts the amount of time you have to bring a personal injury lawsuit before you forfeit your recovery rights forever. However, calculating the deadline based on the statute can be complicated; your attorney can identify the applicable deadline in your case.

Client Reviews

Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case. In addition, Jonathan was understanding and patient pertaining to any of my questions or concerns. I was very happy with the end result and I highly recommend Jonathan Rosenfeld.

- Michonne Proulx

Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own.

- Ethan Armstrong

Jonathan helped my family heal and get compensation after our child was suffered a life threatening injury at daycare. He was sympathetic and in constant contact with us letting us know all he knew every step of the way. We were so blessed to find Jonathan!

- Giulia

This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you.

- Daniel Kaim

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial.
