How We Can Help

Car Accidents 

Car accidents can be traumatic and lead to severe, life-altering injuries and mental anguish. In the aftermath of the accident, medical bills, and lost income can cause significant financial challenges. 

Our personal injury lawyers in Arlington Heights can help you pursue compensation for these damages. We have vast experience in handling car accident cases, including those involving: 

Drunk Driving Victims 

When accidents involve drunk drivers, the consequences can be fatal. These incidents often result in severe injuries. 

Victims of drunk driving accidents can pursue a number of damages, both compensatory and punitive. 

Our attorneys will hear the details of your case and help you find the best course of action to take to pursue the compensation you deserve. 


Rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft are convenient transportation options, but what happens if you’re involved in an accident with a rideshare driver? Whether you’re a passenger in the rideshare vehicle or the opposing party, it can be challenging to know how to proceed. 

Rideshare companies aren’t always transparent about their insurance coverage, which further complicates matters. 

Cases such as these are complex and require the help of an experienced law firm like Vito & Dollenmaier Law. 

UM/UIM and Hit and Run 

Being involved in an accident with an uninsured, underinsured, or hit and run driver can be a nightmare. When the other driver does not have insurance coverage or has inadequate coverage, you may worry about how you will cover the cost of medical care and lost wages.  

Fortunately, there is hope, and you do have options through your own car insurance coverage. 

Our team will negotiate with insurance carriers and advocate on your behalf to pursue the compensation you’re entitled to. 

Truck Accidents 

Truck accidents often lead to severe injuries and fatalities. Often, injuries require long-term or lifelong care and may affect your ability to return to work.  

If you have been involved in a truck accident, our personal injury lawyers in Arlington Heights will help you pursue compensation for your injuries and damages. 

We have experience handling a wide range of truck accidents, including those involving: 


Amazon is one of the biggest retailers in the world, but their focus on delivering packages as quickly as possible has led to drivers engaging in risky behavior. Accidents involving Amazon drivers have become increasingly more common. 

If you have been involved in an accident with an Amazon truck, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, mental anguish and more. 

Our lawyers will fight on your behalf to help you secure a fair settlement. 

Motorcycle Accidents 

Motorcyclists are more vulnerable to severe injuries when they’re out on the road. Accidents often lead to severe or even fatal injuries.  

In addition to physical and mental suffering, a motorcycle accident can cause an extensive financial burden. 

The lawyers at Vito & Dollenmaier Law are here to help you navigate the complexities of motorcycle accident claims and help you pursue compensation for your injuries. 

Dog Bites & Attacks 

An estimated 32.4% of households in Illinois own a dog. While pets can be like family, dog bites and attacks can and do happen.  

Dog attacks can cause serious injuries, including lacerations and even disfigurement. 

If you have been the victim of a dog attack or bite, our lawyers can help you pursue compensation for your medical care and other costs associated with the injury. 

Pedestrian and Bicycle Accidents 

Pedestrian and bicycle accidents are often more serious because victims have less protection than if they were in an automobile. Extensive injuries can occur due to a driver’s negligence, such as failing to stop at a crosswalk or failure to yield. 

“Dooring” can also occur, where a driver fails to look before opening their door and hits a bicyclist. 

Our personal injury lawyers in Arlington Heights work with victims of pedestrian and bicycle accidents to seek the compensation they deserve. 

Premises Liability 

Property owners, often in a business setting but not always, have a responsibility to address safety issues and hazards that can cause injuries to another person. For example, if an owner of a retail store knows of a loose tile, fails to fix it or place signage of the hazard and you slip and fall, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. 

Owners of properties have the responsibility to protect the safety of visitors, but certain conditions must be met. 

We’ll need to review your case details to determine whether you have a claim. 

Wrongful Death 

Losing a loved one due to someone else’s negligence is always challenging. The feeling of grief is overwhelming, but you can still seek damages. Wrongful death can occur in: 

  • Motor vehicle accidents 
  • Slips and falls 
  • Work accidents 
  • Pedestrian accidents 
  • More 

While there is never enough compensation for the loss of a loved one, we can seek damages for surviving family members to help cover: 

  • Medical expenses relating to the accident. 
  • Loss of financial support or income. 
  • Pain and suffering. 
  • Loss of companionship and support. 
  • Funeral and burial expenses. 

Once you schedule a consultation with us, we’ll work tirelessly to ensure you and your family receive the compensation you deserve.
