$220,000 Car Accident Settlement in DuPage County

Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid recently obtained a $220,000 settlement for a person injured in a car accident in DuPage County. 

On June 10, 2010, our client, a 53 year-old man, was traveling westbound on Midway Drive at the intersection of Brookbank Road in Willowbrook. He did not have a stop sign for his direction. The other driver was traveling northbound on Brookbank Road when he pulled his vehicle directly in front of our client and caused a severe frontal impact for our client's vehicle.

Our client sustained a concussion and a factured orbital bone in his face from being thrown around inside his car even with his seatbelt on.  Our client suffered from post-concussion syndrome, including symptoms of headache, attention and memory difficulties.  Our client also suffered a permanent loss of sense of smell due to the forces involved in the crash.  In a frontal impact to the head, the brain can move forward inside the skull and shear off the olfactory nerves that allow us to perceive smell.  The loss of sense of smell in that situation can be permanent.  The outstanding medical treatment by a number of DuPage County-area doctors, nurses, physical therapists and psychologists helped our client recover as good as possible, but he will still have certain permanent issues.  

The case settled very shortly before the trial in DuPage County when the insurance company increased their settlement offer to an amount 10 times larger than their original offer.

Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid continues to handle all types of personal injury cases involving car accidents, truck and motorcycle accidents, medical malpractice, defective products, permanent injuries, wrongful death and other unfortunate circumstanes in DuPage, Cook, Kane, Will and Kendall Counties and through the Naperville - Chicago area.

  1. "Committed To My Cause"

    I was struck by a car while cycling and severely, almost fatally injured. A team of excellent medical professionals performed complicated and extensive surgical and medical procedures as part of a successful effort to restore my health....
    -Jeff D.

  2. "Could not have made a better choice"

    We found Mark [Mathys] through the web after an auto accident in October 2011. While selecting someone you don't know to represent you can be a gamble, we could not have made a better choice....
    - Dave

  3. "Very satisfied"

    Mark [Mathys] is very professional. He responds almost immediately, via email, to any question, comment or concern I have and if he is not able to respond right away, he will let me know. I have been very satisfied with Mark so far and I am happy to be his client.
    -Jennifer

  4. "Easy to talk to"

    Mr. Mathys and Mr. Schneid were very professional and easy to talk to. Prior to working with them, my wife and I had no real experience with the legal system beyond a house closing, yet Mr. Mathys and Mr. Schneid explained the whole process to us very well. I knew that whenever I had a concern about our case or the legal system in general I could call their office or send an email and receive answers the same day... -Larry

  5. "Provided very wise advice"

    I've dealt with attorneys on a variety of issues, almost all of them since leaving college and entering the workplace. Mr. Mathys was the first attorney I had any real experience with, and I was impressed then and remain so. He provided very wise advice and always kept me informed. In the end, he delivered a favorable result. I recommend him highly.
    - Tyler D.

  6. "In-depth knowledge of the law"

    Mark [Schneid] is an excellent and skilled attorney and demonstrated in-depth knowledge of the law when he helped settle my dog bite lawsuit resulting from a traumatic incident. He explained what was needed of me and how I should handle the situation in a professional manner.
    - Karen K.

  7. "They went to bat for me"

    Not long ago I was involved in a car accident where I was hit by a gravel truck at an intersection. After I called Mathys & Schneid, even though I didn't have a very large case, they made me feel like I was one of their most important cases. They went to bat for me with the trucking company's insurance and got me a settlement. I would definitely recommend them to my family and friends. -Dan H.
