Everyone’s circumstances and injuries can affect potential damages in unique ways after a personal injury accident. It’s critical to remember that when another person’s negligence causes your injuries, you are entitled to compensation. You do not have to shoulder that burden alone. Talk to a Staver personal injury attorney to determine the payout you can pursue after an injury accident.
It’s reasonable to be worried about your expenses after an accident, especially if you don’t have adequate health insurance coverage. Even if the accident was someone else’s fault, you’ll still need to pay your bills now. Your settlement won’t be instant, and you may have to pay for some of your damages sooner rather than later. However, working with a knowledgeable personal injury attorney can help you recover losses caused by your injury.
After an accident, many people are worried about all the sudden costs they have to cover. Hiring a lawyer to help with your personal injury claim may seem like an unnecessary added cost. However, it’s essential to consider working with an attorney because personal injury claims can become complicated quickly. Most attorneys work for “contingency fees,” which means you only pay if you win a settlement. Your attorney will be especially motivated to help you find the liable party and build a case against them. Discuss payment options to ensure you don’t have a risk of losing valuable legal representation.
Under Illinois law, drivers involved in an injury crash are required to file a report if the crash caused a fatality, bodily injury, or more than $1,500 worth of property damage, if drivers are insured. If drivers do not have insurance, the minimum property damage is $500. Police responding to a crash will file a report, but if one doesn’t come, drivers must file a report with the Illinois State Police within five days. A police-created report can aid your claim, but you should speak with a lawyer about your options if a report was never filed. You should be able to file a claim still, but you’ll need to take a different route.
After an accident, you might be worried about missing work, having a diminished income, or using your personal days because of your injuries. You may even worry about losing your job. However, a personal injury lawyer can help you take steps to secure your employment through the Family and Medical Leave Act. Your attorney can help you keep your employer informed and protect your job.
After an accident, you might feel like you can avoid costs by avoiding medical evaluation. You might not think your injuries are serious enough for a checkup, or that it’d be a waste of your time, but getting treatment is critical to getting a personal injury claim. The defendant in your claim will argue your injuries aren’t as serious as you claim. Some injuries have “invisible” symptoms, delayed signs or pain that a medical provider could catch before they get too serious. Our attorneys can review your circumstances, coordinate care, and work with your doctors to ensure you get the treatment you need to heal.
One of the greatest challenges for victims after an injury accident is meeting their financial obligations. You might have a diminished capacity to work: your bills aren’t going to wait. Our team can check your available options, calculate your damages, and help you pursue the compensation you’re owed.
Finding the person, people, or organizations liable for your injuries can be challenging on your own. You and your attorney need to establish negligence. Depending on your circumstances, that could be as simple as saying it’s the driver that hit you, but sometimes there are other factors that might diminish your case’s value. The defense may argue you contributed to your car crash by neglecting road law. Your attorney can help you evaluate your case’s details and help you find who is at fault for your damages.
