Trusted personal injury lawyers for car, tractor trailer, and vehicle accidents in and near Alton
Traffic accidents are an everyday occurrence. But over the past few years, the number of fatal accidents has risen. Early data for 2022 shows an estimated 7% increase in fatal crashes from 2021 to 2022 – and the jump in Illinois is three times that high (22.7%).
Glisson Law represents people who have been seriously injured, and who have lost loved ones, because of negligence by other drivers. Our car accident lawyers handle complex claims throughout Illinois and Missouri involving:
Car Accidents, including those caused by drunk and distracted drivers, reckless drivers, and speeding drivers. We handle rear-end, head-on, side-swipe, and wrong-way collisions, as well as single and multi-vehicle crashes.
Truck Accidents, including semi-truck, tractor-trailer, ad other commercial vehicle accidents caused by driver negligence, broker and shipper negligence, and falling cargo.
Motorcycle Accidents, including those caused by other riders as well as passenger and commercial drivers. We also handle claims stemming from dangerous roads and defective helmets.
Non-Driver Accidents, such as those involving pedestrians and cyclists, scooters and electric bikes, or off-road vehicles like ATVs. Given our placement to the mighty Mississippi River, Glisson Law also handles boating accidents and FELA-related claims.
Uber/Lyft Accidents, as well as collisions with taxis and other commercial transport, such as buses (charter and public), limos, and courtesy vans.

What other kinds of
injury claims do you handle?
Glisson Law has the experience, skills, and resources to represent folks who have been harmed because of another person or entity’s negligence. To that end, we represent clients in every type of negligence claim there is, including:
Premises Liability Claims. These types of cases involve injuries resulting from unsafe, dangerous, or otherwise defective spaces and places. A slip and fall at a grocery store, a dog bite that causes permanent scarring, an injury sustained as a result of an assault – all of these are types of premises liability claims, and we handle all of them – and more.
Product Liability Claims. When you purchase a product you expect it to work as intended. Sometimes you get a “dud,” but sometimes people get really hurt because the product itself is dangerous, or because something went wrong during the manufacturing process. (Illinois and Missouri allow for negligence, breach or warranty, and strict liability claims, but we can discuss this in-depth during your free consultation.) Whether it’s a vehicle part, a dangerous child’s product, a defective household item or even a dangerous drug, we want to help.
Workers’ Compensation Claims. When you get hurt on the job, Illinois and Missouri allow you to file a claim for workers’ compensation, which pays for wage loss, medical bills, and disability. Over the years, we’ve found that some folks who think they have a “work comp” claim actually have a personal injury claim against a third party. We can review the circumstances of your injury or illness and guide you toward the best possible options for your needs.
Medical Malpractice & Nursing Home Claims. An act of medical negligence can have devastating repercussions. Acts of nursing home abuse or neglect can destroy a loved one’s quality of life; a birth injury can lead to lifelong medical and cognitive impairments. We can discuss your options during your free consultation, and provide guidance about what your nest steps should be.
