How Can a Chicago Personal Injury Attorney Help?
A good injury lawyer will provide an in-depth analysis of your claim, determine fault, calculate damages, gather evidence, and negotiate for the maximum possible settlement. If a reasonable settlement cannot be reached, your attorney should be prepared to fight for you in court and take the matter to trial.
Without legal representation, insurance companies may try to take advantage of you in your most vulnerable of times. Insurance companies are aware that injury victims experiencing increased medical bills, missed paychecks, or other losses due to their injury may be willing to accept a lesser amount of compensation due to their circumstances. They use this knowledge to offer lower settlement amounts to injury victims who do not have legal representation.
However, with an Illinois injury attorney by your side, you may be able to obtain substantially more compensation following a personal injury accident. Common damages you may be able to recover include:
- Medical bills
- Lost income, current and future
- Vehicle repair expenses
- Alternative accommodation costs
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of Consortium
