AUTO-CAR ACCIDENT LAWYER
Personal Injury Attorney in Chicago Illinois
The majority of auto-car accident cases involving personal injury in Illinois, handled by lawyers, are caused by the negligence of the other driver. Many of these auto accidents involve a motorist who failed to do one or more of the following things. Failed to keep a sufficient and proper lookout for other drivers and vehicles on the street. Failed to reduce speed to avoid the accident. Failed to stop at a red light or a stop sign. The list goes on and on. If you or someone you know sustained injury as a result of someone else’s fault, you should know that, Illinois law allows recovery for medical bills, pain and suffering, loss time from work, amongst other damages accrued as a result of the other driver’s negligence.
Other Driver’s Fault – Insurance Will Pay For Their Negligence
NOT LIKELY: In fact, it's bad enough that the negligence of someone else have caused you to suffer injury, damage to your car, pain and suffering, lost time from work and other heartaches, but now the other driver's insurance company is telling you that the accident was your fault. This happens all the time. Simple fact is that insurance companies are in the business of making money, not paying out their claims. The bottom line is what every insurance adjuster is trained to do first. In fact, most insurance companies have a staff of their own attorneys who litigate on their behalf. Most of the lawyers doing insurance defense are on the payroll and sending an extra file to them will not cost the insurance company any more money. We have a great team of litigation lawyers we use on daily basis who will fight for you. Insurance companies have lawyers, should’t you?
Things You Must Know and Do:
- Gather all information pertaining to your auto accident, including:
- Names of medical doctors you visited
- Dates of each consultation
- Copies of bills and records
- Any additional documentation that describes the repercussions of the accident
- Get copies of police reports and names of witnesses
In Illinois you generally have a two-year window to file suit against the party that caused your injury. In the cases of property damage you have five years to file suit. It is crucial to consult an experienced attorney as soon as possible to get the best results.
