When you or a loved one is seriously injured in a car accident, it is important to seek experienced legal representation to make sure your rights and interests are protected. Some of the ways a car accident lawyer can protect you include:
Understanding Nuances of the Law. An experienced auto injury attorney understands the nuances of Illinois personal injury law and can help you effectively navigate the procedural obstacles your case may encounter on its way to trial. You attorney can also help you file all of your paperwork on time, making sure you do not miss important deadlines that could impede your ability to recover compensation.
Determining Fair Value of Claim. Insurance companies often seek to settle claims early, before the full extent of an injury is known. While the settlement amount may seem like a lot of money, it may fall far short of what you actually need and deserve. An auto injury attorney can help you determine the fair value of your claim by assessing both current and future expenses—and make sure you do not settle for less than you are entitled to.
Fighting for Maximum Compensation. An attorney with experience in personal injury law can not only help you determine the fair value of your claim, but also help you fight for maximum compensation. People who choose legal representation have been proven to recover greater settlements and verdicts than people who choose to represent themselves—even after legal fees are factored in.
