Car Injury Lawyer Chicago Illinois
Why Hire A Car Accident Lawyer?
Your best interests are served by hiring a competent, well-respected, and accomplished car accident lawyer. Hiring any attorney will not automatically bring you the results you expect. Instead, you should hire a car accident lawyer with experience, someone who has the superior knowledge and skill set to recover the financial compensation you deserve. Stein & Shulman, Chicago-area car crash attorneys, have over 45 years of collective experience in addition to recovering over $40 million in damages for their injured clients.
To Project Your Financial Interest
A car accident lawyer will protect your interests. You have only one chance to get it right. If you do not, then your interests would be lost forever. For example, Illinois has a two-year (2) statute of limitations for personal injuries. If you fail to file a claim in court within two years, your claim is barred forever. There are almost no exceptions. A car accident lawyer will know how to preserve your rights and make sure that your claim is not forever barred.
Future Medical Treatment and Expenses
Additionally, if you accept a settlement without first consulting with a car accident lawyer, you could be damaging yourself financially. Accepting a settlement before all of your treatment is complete might sound like a good idea at first. However, accepting a quick and easy settlement comes with inherent risks. You will be prohibited by the terms of a contract called a release from claiming additional injuries stemming from your car accident after accepting a settlement. The insurance company will not give you a settlement if you refuse to sign the release. Therefore, you cannot pursue additional damages if you are more severely injured than you initially believed.
An Unrepresented Party is at a Distinct Disadvantage
Representing yourself will not save you money in the long run. While you will not have to reduce your settlement figure by the attorney’s fees, you will not receive the settlement amount you should have been awarded. A lack of experience and a lack of understanding of how insurance company settlements work and their negotiating tactics leaves you, the unrepresented party at a distinct disadvantage.
Additionally, representing yourself is of little or no threat to the insurance company. The insurance companies employ highly skilled and well-trained insurance defense lawyers whose sole responsibility is to protect the insurance company’s interests. Insurance defense lawyers have significant financial incentives to reducing or eliminating their client’s liability. If the defense firm loses too often, then the insurance company will replace them with another firm.
Find an Experienced Car Accident Attorney for Maximum Results
Hiring an attorney other than a car accident lawyer is not wise either. A lawyer who does not dedicate their practice to representing car accident victims will not have the experience that a firm which exclusively represents car accident victims will have. They will also lack the intimate knowledge that practitioners of car accident law have developed through their experience.
