What is my McHenry County car accident worth?

DISCLAIMER: Please note that every case is different based on a separate set of facts, and the settlements and verdicts listed here, while accurate, do not represent the value of your case or the result we can achieve for you. The following are representative settlements and verdicts pursued and won by Attorney David N. Rechenberg of the law firm of Franks & Rechenberg, P.C. It also does not mean that we win all of our cases, we don’t, but we only get paid in the cases that we win. Our clients have told us that one factor in retaining our firm is the results we have obtained for satisfied clients in the past. You should also ask a perspective attorney whether he or she has obtained significant settlements or verdicts, but the decision to hire an attorney for your case, should not be made on that factor alone.
