The plaintiff was driving her 1999 Honda Accord eastbound on Montrose Avenue. In the 4900 block of Montrose she put her turn signal on and slowed to make a left turn. At that time a woman driving a 1994 Pontiac Grand Prix rear-ended her.
Over the next several days the plaintiff developed neck pain and headaches due to the accident. She then sought treatment with a medical doctor in the north suburbs of Chicago. The physician also referred her for a course of physical therapy.
Since the date of the accident, our client been trying to deal with a large insurance carrier without the help of an attorney. After “spinning her wheels” for several months and not getting anywhere, she decided to retain counsel.
