Chicago injury lawyer reaches uninsured motorist settlement

An Illinois auto accident attorney at Abels & Annes has settled an uninsured motorist claim for Chicago resident. The case stemmed from a collision that occurred on December 11, 2009 in the area of 10600 S. LaSalle Street on the South Side.

Our client was driving his 2002 Chevrolet Astro Van eastbound on 106th Street when the defendant failed to stop at a stop sign for northbound traffic on LaSalle Street. The at fault driver drove his 1998 Pontiac Bonneville into the plaintiff’s passenger side door.

The Chicago Police Department handled the crash investigation. The investigating officer took statements from both sides and placed the defendant at fault.

Immediately after the accident the plaintiff started experiencing back and neck pain. Due to his injuries, he sought treatment with an orthopedic physician in Chicago.

The Pontiac driver’s vehicle was uninsured at the time of the accident. Attorneys at our law firm set up an uninsured motorist claim for the client against his own auto insurance carrier. Geico insurance paid on the claim.
