5 Ways an Auto Accident Lawyer Can Help with Your Insurance Claim

What exactly can an experienced auto accident lawyer do to help? When you choose an attorney at Malman Law for your insurance claim in Oak Lawn, your attorney will:

1. Help You Get Treatment from Trusted Medical Experts

After an auto accident, getting medical treatment for your injuries is a top priority. But, it can also be a challenge, especially if you do not have a doctor you trust who can see you immediately. We routinely work with trusted physicians in Oak Lawn and throughout the Chicago area who specialize in treating patients with traumatic accident-related injuries.

2. Collect the Evidence Needed to Prove Your Claim

In order to recover just compensation from the insurance companies, you need evidence of liability. You also need evidence of the extent and long-term effects of your traumatic injuries. When you contact us about your accident, our attorneys will investigate and collect any and all evidence that is available to support your claim. We will also work with your doctors to ensure that we have the evidence needed to prove the full extent of your financial and non-financial harm.

3. Calculate Your Current and Future Financial and Non-Financial Losses

Under Illinois law, auto accident victims are entitled to full compensation for their current and future losses. This includes compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Other out-of-pocket costs
  • Lost income and earning capacity
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional trauma
  • Loss of enjoyment of life and other non-financial losses

When you choose Malman Law to represent you, our attorneys will make sure you know exactly how much you are entitled to recover for your accident-related losses.

4. Negotiate with the Insurance Companies for You

Once we determine how much you are entitled to recover, then we can negotiate with the insurance companies on your behalf. Using the evidence we obtained during our investigation, we will present a convincing case for maximum compensation. If the insurance companies try to blame you for your own injuries, we will use our evidence to counter these allegations as well.

5. Make Sure You Don’t Settle for Less than You Deserve

Ultimately, one of the biggest mistakes you can make after an auto accident in Oak Lawn is to settle for too little too soon. Once you settle, your case is over, and you cannot come back later and ask for more. Our attorneys will fight vigorously to secure maximum compensation through the settlement process; and, if the insurance companies refuse to offer a fair settlement, we will be fully prepared to take your case to court.
