If you have been injured in a car accident in Chicago, there are a few things you need to know. First, if another driver was negligent in causing the accident, you may be entitled to significant financial compensation. Second, this compensation typically comes from the negligent driver’s insurance company, which will fight tooth and nail to avoid paying you. Third, in order to recover the money you are owed, you will need to be able to quantify your losses and collect enough evidence to convince the insurance company (or a court) that you are entitled to just compensation.
At Malman Law, we have represented more than 7,000 auto accident victims and have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for their losses. Our attorneys and professional staff know how to extract maximum value from the insurance companies. Hence, whether your case involves small-scale damage, catastrophic injury, or even a tragic loss of life, we have the knowledge, experience, and resources necessary to effectively pursue your claim.
Reasons Why You May Be Entitled to Compensation
Drivers are required to operate their vehicles in a safe and reasonably prudent manner. Unfortunately, as we know from the hundreds of car accidents that happen in Illinois every single day, many, many drivers fail to meet this standard of care. Driver negligence leads to thousands of serious injuries and hundreds of deaths throughout the state every year. Here in Chicago, someone dies in an accident roughly every three days.
As a victim of a car accident, there are several potential reasons why you may be entitled to financial compensation. The following is a non-exhaustive list of potential grounds for filing a lawsuit against a negligent driver:
- Texting or talking on the phone behind the wheel
- Drinking and driving
- Running a red light or stop sign
- Failing to yield the right of way
- Following too closely
- Not paying attention to the road
At Malman Law, we rely on decades of experience and work with a team of trusted experts to prove that other drivers are responsible for our clients’ injuries.
Find Out How Much You Are Entitled to Recover
While the amount you are entitled to recover will depend on the scope of your losses, many accident victims are surprised to learn just how much they have lost as a result of their collision-related injuries. If you contact the negligent driver’s insurance company directly, they will try to get you to settle for far less than you are owed. In fact, both the other driver’s insurance company and your own insurance company may try to get you to sign waivers that prevent you from securing just compensation. You should not sign anything until you speak with an attorney about your case.
When you contact us, we will conduct a thorough investigation and make sure you seek appropriate medical care.
