You never know when youll be in need of a personal injury lawyer, so its helpful to know what exactly we do, and how we can help you in your time of need.
Armed with that knowledge you may realize its in your best interest to hire a personal injury lawyer for your case, particularly if you have been seriously injured.
A personal injury lawyer will investigate your case by talking to witnesses and gathering evidence, or possibly even hiring an investigator for a more thorough search. Your attorney will use this information to determine the cause of the accident, along with any underlying factors that may have contributed to the incident, or to your injuries.
These findings are a key factor in deciding who is financially responsible. Your lawyer may also identify crucial elements that you may not have noticed at the time of the accident, such as a dangerous intersection with a history of similar accidents.
A personal injury lawyer is much more reliable than the police or your insurance company because your attorney has your best interest at heart. On the other hand, your insurance company is likely just looking for a way to avoid paying you. Your attorney will also help you identify all the coverage available to you to help pay for your injuries. This is a very complicated process, and might be overwhelming for you to handle on your own.
When the investigation is complete, your attorney will also make sure you file the complaint properly, along with any other necessary forms, meeting all of your deadlines. He or she will determine who you should name in your lawsuit, and how much money you should demand.
Our attorneys will handle negotiations with your insurance company,hire any necessary experts, and ultimately take your case to trial if necessary. Satisfied clients have enabled our firm to become the#1 workers’ compensation and personal injury law firm in Illinois.
