Have You Had A Car Accident With Injuries That Wasn’t Your Fault?

If you have been involved in a car accident that was the fault of another driver, you are entitled to compensation from that driver’s insurance company for medical bills and lost wages.  However, you must see a doctor to document your injury in order to recover damages.  It is also an excellent idea to hire an experienced personal injury attorney to help you with your case.  The at-fault driver’s insurance company has lawyers working to minimize or deny your claim, so you need an attorney who will work hard for you.

How Much is My Car Accident Case Worth?

This is a question that we are frequently asked, and the answer is this: All car accident cases are different, and there is no formula for calculating the amount of pain and suffering you have endured.  Typically, settlements are based in part on the severity of your injury, what type of medical treatment you need, how long your treatment will last, whether you have permanent impairment as a result of the car accident, and so on.  Because of this, you should not try to settle too quickly for pain and suffering, even if the claims adjuster calls asking for your recorded statement.  Bottom line – if your injuries are serious and of an ongoing nature, you should consult a good personal injury lawyer.  Not sure where to start?  Order our FREE car accident book entitled, “Seven Deadly Mistakes That Can Destroy Your Illinois Car Accident Case”. This free publication reveals the dirty little tricks that insurance companies pull in an attempt to deny your car accident.
