Immediately after being injured in an auto accident, you are thrown into an adversarial legal system that is complex and confusing. While you are still receiving initial treatment for your injuries in a hospital emergency room, the parties at fault have already notified their insurance company of the accident. Every insurance company has in place, a team of adjustors, investigators and attorneys whose sole responsibility is to limit the liability of the insurance company and minimize the amount of money they will be required to pay “innocent” auto accident victims.
You need the assistance of a qualified Auto Accident Lawyer who has the experience to investigate an accident on your behalf.
A qualified injury attorney will contact witnesses to obtain statements. It is important to get a statement from a witness as soon as possible after an accident so they remember the details. Waiting until days or weeks after an accident to get a statement will never benefit the injured party.
A qualified attorney knows how to deal with the insurance company adjusters. Knowing what to say and what not to say is key when dealing with the insurance companies and their attorneys. Anything you say may be used against you at some point in the future.
A qualified attorney may can assist you in getting the medical treatment you need. Often times, a medical provider may be reluctant to provide treatment to an injured party who does not have insurance. Your attorney will contact your medical provider on your behalf and speak with the provider about their options for bill payment.
A qualified attorney knows how to properly assess the value of a personal injury case. If you are dealing with the insurance company on your own, they will try and settle your claim for far less than what it is worth. An attorney will make sure that the compensation the insurance company offers to settle your claim is a fair offer.
A qualified attorney can present your case before a judge or jury. If your claim is being denied by the insurance company or if what they are offering to settle your case if far below the real value, your case should be heard by either a judge or a jury. The injury laws in Illinois are complex. Only a qualified experienced car accident attorney can successfully present your case in a court of law.
