Car Accidents 

You can be driving along Old Checker Road to Willow Stream Park or heading on Half Day Road and end up in a car accident. Some accidents don’t involve injuries – just property damage – but many do. 

Our personal injury lawyers in Buffalo Grove know that no one is prepared for the mental anguish, medical bills, lost income and other costs they’ll incur after an accident. 

We can help you navigate complex laws, fight back against insurance companies and drivers. Our team often works with people who are: 

Drunk Driving Victims 

One-in-five accident fatalities involve alcohol. We know how destructive drunk drivers are on the road. Your accident may have been prevented if the other driver wasn’t intoxicated. If you’re a victim of a drunk driving accident, our lawyers can help. 

We’ll pursue damages against the insurance company and the at-fault driver. 

Drivers must exercise proper caution on the road. The at-fault driver failed to exercise this caution the moment they sat behind the wheel after consuming alcohol. 


Uber and Lyft are convenient, allowing you to book a ride right from your phone. Thousands of passengers use these services in Cook and Lake County every week, and it takes one negligent driver to cause an accident. 

Victims of rideshare accidents are left with complex insurance rules: 

  • Do you contact the rideshare company’s insurance? 
  • Do you contact the driver’s insurance? 
  • Was the driver using the app at the time of the accident or was no passenger in the vehicle? 

Filing claims against rideshare drivers is complicated. We’ll review your case and hold the parties responsible accountable to pursue the compensation you deserve. 


Who pays for your damages when the at-fault driver is uninsured or underinsured? Your insurance company includes both UM and UIM coverage in your liability policy. Insurers often push back and drag their feet with these claims. 

We can help. 

Truck Accidents 

Truck-related accidents are serious. You may be involved in an accident with a tractor trailer or commercial vehicle. If the driver did not take adequate breaks or have the proper endorsements, among other factors, you may be able to seek damages against the company and driver. 


Amazon driver accidents are increasingly common as more people order from the e-commerce giant. Drivers are often under pressure to deliver packages on time, leading to errors in judgment and accidents. 

We’ll help you seek compensation for your claim and hold all parties accountable for their actions. 

Motorcycle Accidents 

Motorcyclists are at exceptionally high risk of injuries when they’re involved in an accident. You have two years from the date of your accident to file a claim. Our lawyers will help negotiate with insurance companies and hold all parties involved responsible for the financial hardship, pain and suffering and life-altering impact of the accident. 

Dog Bites & Attacks 

Being attacked by a dog can be a traumatic experience, but it can also leave you with painful injuries that require immediate medical treatment. 

If you were injured by a dog bite, our lawyers will fight to help you obtain compensation for your medical bills, emotional anguish, scarring and disfigurement. 

Pedestrian and Bicycle Accidents 

Pedestrian and bicycle accidents can lead to serious injuries that have lifelong effects. Negligent or reckless motorists can be held liable for your: 

  • Medical bills, including rehabilitation and future care 
  • Lost wages or loss of future income 
  • Pain and suffering 

Our experienced personal injury lawyers in Buffalo Grove will negotiate with the insurance company and fight aggressively to reach a fair settlement. 

Premises Liability 

Property owners have a responsibility to take reasonable steps to keep their premises safe. When they fail to repair or warn of known hazards, they may be held liable for injuries. 

We can assist with premises liability cases involving: 

  • Slips and falls 
  • Inadequate security 
  • Swimming pool accidents 
  • Dog bites 
  • Elevator and escalator accidents 

Our experienced lawyers will evaluate your case and help you fight for the compensation you deserve. 

Wrongful Death 

Negligent or reckless behavior can be deadly. If your loved one lost their life in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for: 

  • Medical care 
  • Loss of financial support and income 
  • Pain and suffering 
  • Funeral costs 
  • Loss of consortium 
  • Other damages 

Our lawyers will fight aggressively to obtain the compensation you deserve.  

How to Choose a Personal Injury Lawyer 

Personal injuries can have a ripple effect, impacting your physical, financial and emotional health. When these injuries are caused by someone else’s negligence, you can seek compensation for damages, including medical bills, pain and suffering, emotional trauma and lost wages.  

To achieve the best possible outcome and secure a fair settlement, it’s crucial to choose a lawyer who won’t back down from insurance companies. 

How do you find the right lawyer? There are several things to consider, including: 

  • Experience with personal injury law: The more experience a lawyer has with personal injury law, the higher the chances of succeeding with your claim. Experienced lawyers will know how to handle even the biggest of challenges you may face in a personal injury case.  
  • Communication: Don’t underestimate the importance of the attorney-client relationship. Consider whether they will answer your questions, explain the legal process and promptly return your calls. If you’re pursuing a personal injury claim, you want a compassionate, professional lawyer on your side. 
  • Track record of success: A lawyer with a history of success is more likely to achieve a favorable outcome in your case. Can they provide referrals or case results for you to evaluate? Check their testimonials and online reviews to gauge their reputation. 
  • Time and resources: Will your case get enough time and attention? Does the lawyer have additional resources to help support your case? A firm with adequate resources will give your claim the best chance of success. 

When you’re facing injuries that impact your life and future, you can’t risk working with an inexperienced lawyer. At Vito & Dollenmaier Law, we have experience working on a wide range of personal injury cases involving serious and complex injuries.
