Injured in an Auto Accident in Aurora? Here’s What You Need to Know

When you get injured in an accident, making informed decisions is the key to maximizing your financial recovery. Here are some of the key pieces of information you need to know:

1. The Insurance Companies Will Not Offer You Just Compensation

Despite what they say on television, the insurance companies are not on your side. When you file a claim, their goal is to pay you as little as possible. To make sure they don’t take advantage of you, you need to have a clear understanding of your legal rights, and you need to know exactly how much you are entitled to recover.

2. Evidence is the Key to Financial Recovery

In order to file a successful insurance claim, you need to have evidence of fault, and you need to have evidence of your injury-related losses. This means that you need to hire a law firm to conduct an investigation, and it means that you need to see a doctor as soon as possible.

3. Numerous Factors Can Cause Auto Accidents

While most auto accidents are the result of driver negligence (such as speeding, following too closely, running a red light, or texting behind the wheel), various other factors can cause and contribute to accidents as well. In addition to driver negligence, an investigation may reveal that you are entitled to financial compensation for a vehicle defect, road defect, faulty repair work, or other non-driver-related error.

4. Non-Financial Losses Can Far Exceed Financial Losses

While you may be most concerned about your medical bills and lost income, after an auto accident your non-financial losses can actually far exceed your direct financial harm. In Illinois, accident victims can seek full compensation for pain and suffering, scarring and disfigurement, emotional trauma, and other non-financial losses, and these losses are typically calculated as a multiple of economic damages.

5. Future Losses Can Far Exceed Existing Losses

Similarly, the medical bills you have now could pale in comparison to the total cost of your medical care in the future. If your injuries prevent you from working, your loss of future earning capacity will far exceed your current lost wages as well.

6. You Can Hire an Attorney at No Out-of-Pocket Cost
