Get Help from a Berwyn Car Accident Attorney

If you’ve been in a car accident in Berwyn and you need help, a car accident attorney is there for you. Medical bill reimbursement, insurance issues, missed work, and property damage can be difficult to navigate. Let a Berwyn car accident attorney help with your case.

What Should You Do After an Accident?

If you are still at the scene of the accident, the first thing you should do is call 911. Tell the dispatcher that you have been involved in a collision, and let him or her know exactly where the police and EMTs can find you. Once you call 911, if you are physically able to do so, you should collect the other drivers’ insurance information, collect contact information from any witnesses, take plenty of photos, and wait for the police and EMTs to arrive.
If you are at home after an accident, the most important thing you can do is follow your doctor’s advice. You should also speak with an attorney promptly, as there are steps that you and your attorney both need to take promptly in order to protect your claim for maximum compensation.

Who was at Fault in the Collision?

Determining fault in an auto accident is complicated. It requires a thorough understanding of what happened and in-depth knowledge of Illinois law. For right now, all you really need to know is this: You should never assume that you were at fault. Do not let the insurance companies convince you otherwise; and, to make sure they do not take advantage of you, let your attorney deal with them on your behalf.

Are You Entitled to Financial Compensation?

If someone else was at fault in the accident, and even if someone else was partially at fault, you could potentially be entitled to significant financial compensation. The amount you are entitled to recover will depend on your percentage of fault (if any), the extent of your injuries, and all of the various ways that your injuries impact your life. In Illinois, accident victims can seek compensation for their financial and non-financial losses, and an experienced auto accident attorney will be able to accurately calculate the value of your claim.

Should You Accept an Insurance Settlement?

Eventually, it may be in your best interests to accept an insurance settlement. In fact, the vast majority of auto accident insurance claims settle out of court. But, before you even think about settling, you need to make sure you have a clear understanding of the full amount you are entitled to recover.
