Chicago car accident lawyer to represent woman injured on the North Side

An Illinois injury attorney at Abels & Annes has entered into an agreement to represent a Chicago woman that was injured in a May, 2011 car crash. The incident took place in the area of Milwaukee Avenue & Austin. The plaintiff’s vehicle was rear-ended by another car in traffic.

The collision was actually witnessed by a Chicago police officer who happened to be in the area. That officer handled the investigation.

Our client had an immediate onset of neck and low back pain after the accident. She was seen a short time later at Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge. There she was diagnosed with neck and back sprain/strain.

Over the coming days the plaintiff’s pain only increased. She sought follow-up treatment with both her primary physician and a chiropractor. The chiro started her on a course of therapy.

Unfortunately, the treatment did not help relieve her pain and she is now under the care of an orthopedic medical doctor in the Chicago area.

Our office will be pursuing a negligence claim against the at-fault driver and her insurance carrier.
