Belleville Personal Injury Lawyers Specializing in Car Accidents and Trucking Accidents

You take every precaution when you’re behind the wheel. You put your phone down, keep your eyes on the road and stay within the speed limit. But not everyone can say the same—and their carelessness can cost you everything.

In 2017, more than 66,000 injury crashes occurred on Illinois roads, with 1,400 of them happening in St. Clair County alone. Many car accident victims were able to walk away with a few bumps and scratches, but others face years of pain and recovery caused by no fault of their own.

If you’re involved in a car or trucking accident in Illinois or Missouri, don’t talk to the insurance companies—instead, contact the personal injury attorneys at Cueto Law to understand your rights and ensure what you say isn’t used against you down the road.

Because proving the other driver was at fault can be a difficult, complex process—especially when you’re trying to recover from your injuries—allowing a car accident injury lawyer to file your personal injury claim can make it less painful. Cueto Law will handle every aspect of your case for you, including teaming up with our own accident investigators, getting statements from other witnesses, reviewing your medical records and insurance contracts, and filing all necessary paperwork to remove the liability from you and place it where it belongs—with the other driver and their insurance company.

Our goal is to get you the highest financial award to help cover:

  • Medical, physical therapy and rehabilitation expenses
  • Lost wages and reduced earning capacity
  • Vehicle repairs
  • Pain and suffering, including emotional duress
  • If necessary, home or vehicle modifications to cover things like wheelchair ramps
  • Punitive damages
  • Wrongful death damages, including funeral expenses, if the accident resulted in the loss of a loved one

While a car accident can be life-changing, a tractor-trailer accident can be especially devastating. In a crash, smaller cars can’t stand up to the size and weight of a commercial truck, leaving the driver and passengers at a higher risk for catastrophic injuries. Even with stringent Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations controlling the weight of tractor-trailers, the hours operators can drive and the training they must go through, the difficulty of controlling big rigs can lead to a disaster.

For victims, fighting for compensation after a truck accident is a battle many can never prepare for. In addition to insurance companies, commercial trucking companies have extensive resources available to protect their bottom lines. That’s why you need the experience of a personal injury lawyer who has collected millions for those injured in trucking accidents. We know how the system works and have the resources available to get you the maximum payout for your costs and damages.

Don’t let someone else’s mistake steal away your financial security. If you live in St. Louis or the Metro East, contact Cueto Law, the experienced personal injury accident lawyers in Southern Illinois. We offer no-obligation consultations and only charge for our time if your case is settled or won.
