Sometimes, the at-fault auto insurance policy limit may not be enough to cover all of your damages. 

This is when underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage protects accident victims. Illinois requires auto insurance companies to offer uninsured motorist (UM)  coverage. 

When I represent a critically injured client, I look for every reasonable way to take care of my clients & protect their rights.

It is not uncommon for a personal injury lawyer to file a lawsuit and then discover I need to sue other defendants.  For example, if I file an auto accident case, I may also need to add manufacture for product defect
