Motor Vehicle Accidents

February 13, 2020  ·  By HM&M


According to the National Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA), motor vehicle crashes resulting in death have risen steadily during the last decade. Additionally, according to the World Health Organization, traffic collisions kill more than 1.2 million people worldwide each year. The Chicago car accident attorneys at HM&M are experienced in representing victims of car and truck accidents and have obtained many favorable results for their clients including:

  • $1,000,000 settlement for a 46 year old woman whose multiple sclerosis was aggravated in an auto accident
  • $900,00,000 settlement for a 19 year old man who suffered a temporary head injury in a car accident
  • $700,000 settlement in Tennessee for an 82 year old woman killed in an auto accident

Car accidents often involve a complicated set of facts, and many times there is disagreement among the people involved in the collision as to who was at fault. At times, more than one person or company is at fault for the collision. Some accidents result from defects or improper maintenance of one of the vehicles involved. Sometimes car crashes occur because of hazards caused by nearby road construction or due to other hazards in the road or objects that cause visual obstructions.
