Automobile Accidents

Attorney Mark Gryska has successfully handled hundreds of automobile accidents for almost 30 years. He charges no fee unless he collects from the other parties. His fees are contingent upon collection and are documented by a written agreement between you and our firm.

If you are injured as a result of an automobile accident, it is vital to your interests that you are represented by an attorney. Whether you are a driver or passenger, Mark can represent your interests. If you are injured in a vehicle on the job, you may have two cases. Both the personal injury and worker's compensation cases can be dealt with at the same time. Mark regularly represents clients in DuPage, Cook and surrounding counties. He and his staff handle all phases of these cases from the gathering of evidence to trial. Mark's focus and duty is to represent the client's best interest. He also keeps the client informed as to the status and involves the client in all major decisions regarding the case.

The process starts with the client intake. Then a written notice of the claim is sent to the other driver and to his insurance company. Follow up is done on a monthly basis to check on treatment and any questions the client may have. Once treatment is complete and the client feels sufficiently healed, Mark sends out a demand letter detailing the liability and injuries and damages.

If the case fails to settle after demand and discussions with defendant's insurance company representative, suit is filed. Discovery is conducted through written demands for documentary evidence and written questions. Following thism depositions of the parties and any witnesses are taken. Mark carefully prepares his client for his or her deposition and takes the depositions of the defendants and any other witnesses. Many cases settle after this phase. If the case does not settle, then Mark prepares the case for trial. Mark Gryska has successfully tried many cases since 1985.

Mark advises the client from intake through trial on the merits of the case and when it is best to settle or, if appropriate, to go to trial. Mark prepares his cases carefully and thoroughly. Preparation is the key to success. A client well-prepared for his or her deposition and trial, is a client who can testify confidently and consistently. Mark's work has led to many excellent settlements and trial verdicts. He has been successful in getting substantially more net money to his clients, than they would have received if they accepted the insurance offers before retaining Mark.

Our duty of loyalty is always to the client. We are always up front and honest about the risks and expenses of every case. In personal injury cases, we only collect our fee when we settle the case or it goes to verdict in our favor. No attorneys fees are charged otherwise. Mark and his staff looks forward to putting their years of experience to work for you.
