Lipkin & Apter has an experienced team of auto accident attorneys who work diligently to assist personal injury victims throughout the state of Illinois. Our goal is to make the legal process as simple as possible in order to win fair and reasonable settlements for our clients, which in the case below was accomplished by avoiding a lawsuit.


Our client, a 68 year old woman, was struck by a car shortly after leaving her mosque during Ramadan. She was hit in the knee, and required surgery. After spending a week in the hospital, she was transferred for rehabilitation to a nursing home. She remained there a month. Her surgeon believes it is likely our client will require knee replacement surgery in the future. She has returned home, assisted by her daughter and two sons.

The tortfeasor (negligent driver) was driving a 10 year old car. Usually, people driving older cars do not carry high amounts of insurance. This case proved to be an exception, as the driver had a $250,000 policy. After a brief negotiation with State Farm Insurance, they agreed to pay the entire policy. No suit was filed. This case was resolved within 4 months of the client coming to the Chicago law offices of Lipkin & Apter.

Successful Resolution: $250,000

The personal injury attorneys of Chicago’s Lipkin & Apter helped our client receive $250,000 from State Farm without filing suit within a matter of months after the case was engaged.
