It is not uncommon for people injured in auto accidents to feel like they have been blindsided, not only by an accident they never saw coming but also by the myriad of setbacks that follow.

At Chalat Law, we understand the uncertainties following a car accident can feel insurmountable and that you may be searching for answers.

You might be wondering if your auto accident or your injuries are serious enough to justify hiring an attorney. You may not fully understand the extent of your injuries or how much your medical bills will be in the future. You might also be wondering how you will be able to focus on your physical and emotional recovery, manage your daily responsibilities in addition to successfully negotiating a fair settlement with an insurance company that has an army of attorneys figuring out how to devalue your claim.

These are all common questions and concerns. The attorneys at Chalat Law know how to bring clarity, strength and care to your complicated situation. Make the call to our team today. We will review your injury claim, answer your questions and explain your legal rights and options during a 100% free consultation.

    Case Results

    $2,300,000

    wrongful death/drunk driving

    Mr. Burke, a father of a 2-month-old baby and a beloved husband, was killed when a driver under the influence lost control of her vehicle, continued into the median and became airborne, slamming into his employer’s HVAC van. The court found that the defendant’s conduct constituted a felonious killing and entered the judgment in favor of Mr. Burke’s wife and infant daughter.

    $2,000,000

    pedestrian accident

    Our client was crossing the street at Sheridan Blvd. and Byron, walking in the crosswalk with the pedestrian walk signal when he was struck by a car making a right hand turn on red. The collision caused devastating spinal injuries to our client. Chalat Hatten & Banker negotiated the resolution of our client’s pedestrian accident claims without filing a lawsuit. The matter settled for $2,000,000.

    $500,000

    motorcycle accident

    Our client, age 21, was a helmeted passenger on a motorcycle when a car made a left hand turn and crashed into her. She was admitted into ICU for a lacerated liver, knee injury and broken hand. She initially engaged a high-volume, “TV advertising” law firm but felt “she was not being treated fairly or communicated with properly.” Chalat Hatten & Banker ultimately achieved a $500,000 settlement on her behalf.


    “We are trusted to represent clients in matters of great importance – for our clients, that means the one chance an injured person has to hold the responsible party accountable, to stand for David and take on Goliath in a court of law.

    That is the fight that we make our trade.

    Evan Banker, Partner
