There are times when an individual is hurt and the accident was caused by someone else; if there are no substantial injuries and minor property damage it is usually a matter that the parties can resolve between themselves. Then there is the other side of the coin; significant damage to property and injuries that require intervention. In cases like this you are far better off hiring a Chicago accident attorney than simply submitting an insurance claim and hoping for the best.
Personal injury claims can be very complex. In situations such as multi-car collisions with multiple parties involved it can become extremely complicated. If you should suffer injuries that will result in a level of disability or the recovery time will be extensive then an accident lawyer can help you get a settlement that takes circumstances such as these into account. If you attempt to deal with a complicated claim without legal help chances are you will end up with far less than what your claim is worth.
A Chicago accident attorney can take over while you focus on your recovery.
Investigation and evidence:
If you claim the accident was the fault of another; that is not good enough. Your claim must be substantiated with evidence that it was another person that caused the incident and that you suffered injuries which warrant compensation. An experienced accident attorney knows the type of evidence that is needed to support your claim and he or she knows how to get it and use it to prove the accused was negligent.
A seasoned Chicago accident attorney is intimate with the law, insurance and the claims procedure. The attorney is also well aware of the defense strategies that insurance companies fall back on in an effort to keep any award to the minimum. Armed with evidence, knowledge of the law and years of experience, the attorney is in a position to negotiate the best possible settlement.
If you have been injured as a result of negligence on the part of another party you have every right to expect compensation for your expenses, pain and suffering.
