According to IDOT, the estimated costs associated with Illinois car accidents are more than $5 billion each year. Costs to repair or replace your vehicle may be $10,000 or greater, while medical costs associated with even minor injuries can run as high as $100,000. Common types of injuries include:
Under Illinois motor vehicle laws (625 ILCS 5/7-203), all drivers are required to maintain minimum liability coverage in the event of an accident. Unfortunately, in too many cases, either the driver is uninsured or lacks the amount of coverage necessary to cover the costs, or the insurance company itself attempts to undervalue or even deny the claim.
