Motor Vehicle Accident Cases We Handle
At Spiros Law, P.C., our attorneys can help people who were hurt in all kinds of motor vehicle accidents.
Some of the most common types of car accidents in Illinois include:
- Rear-end collisions – When one vehicle crashes into the back of another vehicle
- Head-on collisions – When two vehicles crash into each other headfirst, often resulting in serious injuries or fatalities
- Side-impact collisions (also known as T-bone or broadside collisions) – When one vehicle hits the side of another vehicle, often at an intersection
- Rollover accidents – When a vehicle flips over onto its side or roof
- Single-car accidents – When a vehicle crashes into a stationary object, such as a tree or a guardrail, or goes off the road
- Multi-vehicle pileups – When multiple vehicles hit each other in a chain reaction of collisions
- Pedestrian and bicycle accidents – When a vehicle collides with a pedestrian or a cyclist
- Commercial vehicle accidents – When a truck, bus, delivery van, or other commercial vehicle is involved in an accident
Crashes involving commercial trucks can be particularly devastating due to the size and weight of the vehicles involved. They are often caused by driver fatigue, distracted driving, speeding, and improper loading or maintenance of the truck. Trucking accidents can result in catastrophic and life-threatening injuries, including head trauma, spinal cord injuries, and amputations.
A crash involving a motorcycle can be particularly dangerous due to the lack of protection for the rider. Speeding, distracted driving, and poor weather conditions frequently cause these crashes. Motorcycle accidents can result in serious and life-threatening injuries, including head trauma, spinal cord injuries, and road rash.
Motorist negligence, defective bicycle parts, and poor road conditions often cause bicycle accidents. Bicycle accidents can result in a wide range of injuries, from minor cuts and bruises to serious and life-threatening injuries, such as head trauma, spinal cord injuries, and broken bones.
Pedestrian Accidents – Pedestrians are often injured or killed due to driver inattention, speeding, failure to yield, and poor visibility. Commonly reported injuries include head trauma, spinal cord injuries, leg and hip injuries, and broken bones. Pedestrians may also suffer emotional trauma after an accident, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, and depression.
Farm Vehicle Accidents
Driver inexperience, poor vehicle maintenance, and defective parts frequently cause these accidents. Due to the large size and weight of the vehicle, an accident could result in head trauma, spinal cord injuries, amputations, and other severe or catastrophic harm. A farm vehicle accident can be particularly devastating in rural areas where emergency medical services may not be readily available.
What Are the Most Common Causes of Car Accidents in Illinois?
Some of the most common causes of collisions in Illinois include:
- Driver error – Preventable mistakes are the most common cause of car accidents, including speeding, distracted driving, drunk driving, reckless driving, and failing to obey traffic laws and signals
- Vehicle malfunction – Defective brakes, tires, steering, or other vehicle parts can cause an accident, and poor maintenance can also contribute to crashes
- Road hazards – Potholes, debris, and other hazards on the road can cause drivers to lose control of their vehicles and lead to accidents
- Improper turns – Failing to use turn signals, making illegal turns, or turning too wide or too quickly can cause collisions
- Pedestrian and bicycle errors – Pedestrians and cyclists who fail to follow traffic laws, such as crossing the street illegally or riding in the wrong direction, can cause accidents
- Construction zones – Road work, detours, and other construction-related hazards can contribute to accidents
- Poor weather conditions – Rain, snow, ice, fog, and other weather conditions can make it difficult to see and control a vehicle and increase the risk of accidents

This is probably the number one question that clients ask. The answer is, it depends on the details of your case.

For a more detailed and accurate estimate about what your personal injury claim could be worth, talk to an experienced attorney today. We offer a free initial consultation to help get you started.
There are numerous factors that can influence how long it will take to resolve your case. Cases involving minor injuries may settle relatively quickly. However, cases involving more serious injuries that require extensive medical treatment may take longer to resolve since more compensation will be on the line. Almost all cases will settle before going to trial, but if a case does need to go to trial, that could lengthen the legal process substantially.
When you meet with an attorney to review your case, they may be able to provide you with a rough estimate of what your case may entail and how long the process may take.
At Spiros Law, P.C., we understand that one of the major hurdles to hiring an attorney can be cost. We know you are already in a vulnerable position and may find it challenging to cover medical bills and everyday expenses, let alone pay attorneys’ fees.
That is why we take cases on a contingency-fee-basis. What this means is that we will not charge you any upfront attorneys’ fees, and, in fact, we won’t collect any fees from you unless we win compensation in your case. When we do secure compensation for you, we’ll take a percentage of your final settlement as payment.
