About Your Chicago Car Accident Case
You might have many questions about what you should do if you have been injured or lost a loved one in an accident. It can be a confusing time for you, with many different things to take care of seemingly all at once. While it may be a stressful time for you, know that you do not have to deal with the insurance company on your own. Do not make any statements or engage in any conversations until you understand your options.
Here are some frequently asked questions about auto accidents:
- What Will An Insurance Company Do After A Car Accident?
- Who Else Can Take Legal Action Against An At-Fault Driver In Illinois?
- What Are My Options If I Was Injured As A Passenger In An Auto Accident?
- What Are Your Legal Rights If You Are Involved In An Accident With Uber Or Lyft?
- What Are The Top Causes Of Car Accidents?
After an accident, especially one that has led to a serious injury, the insurance company representatives may reach out to you to try to talk you into settling your case. They know what your case is worth, and they hope you will accept an offer for far less compensation that you would otherwise be entitled to receive.
Our attorneys always provide straightforward advice you can understand. Together we will make the decision to go ahead with trial or take a favorable settlement, depending upon what proves to be in your best interests. We are not going to just take your case to settle. You get experienced advice, when you need it, about the choices facing you in your specific situation.
Why Shouldn’t I Just Settle?
We understand. Things are difficult enough after an accident, and your injuries may be making things even worse. Settling gives you a quick check and puts the whole matter in the past. You might feel that all of your expenses are provided for, but, immediately after an accident, it is tough to know exactly what the future will hold.
If you settle without talking to one of our accident lawyers, you might be causing yourself serious harm. You may not know what sort of long-term care you will need for your injury, and a settlement means you cannot go back to get the compensation needed to pay these additional medical expenses.
