$1,360,000 Settlement for Head-On Crash in Kane County

Mark W. Mathys of Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid recently obtained a $1,360,000 settlement for a woman who was seriously injured in a head-on motor vehicle accident in Kane County.

On January 3, 2014, our client, a 59-year-old woman, was driving southbound on Illinois Route 47, north of Bahr Road near the railroad tracks in Rutland Township. The defendant driver was travelling northbound on Route 47 when he lost control of his pickup truck while going over the railroad tracks, crossed over the center line, and caused a vicious head-on impact to our client's car. The defendant driver was working for his employer at the time of the crash, so his employer was also responsible for the crash.

Our client sustained many serious personal injuries, including hip dislocation and fractures, arm fracture, and nose fracture. She endured a long recovery but is now trying to move on with her life.

The defense attorneys tried to blame the condition of the railroad tracks on Route 47 for causing the defendant to lose control of his vehicle, and they even sued the railroad in our case. When that didn't work, the defendant ordered secret surveillance video of our client in an attempt to prove that she was not seriously injured.

Despite all of these defenses, Mathys & Schneid aggressively prosecuted the case and obtain the justice during a mediation hearing prior to trial.

Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid continues to handle all types of serious personal injury cases involving car accidents, truck and motorcycle accidents, medical malpractice and defective products in Kane, Cook, DuPage, Will and Kendall Counties, and all throughout the United States.

    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.

  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.

  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.
