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

1. You Need to See a Doctor.

If you have been injured in an auto accident, one of the first things you need to do is to see a doctor. Not only is this important for your health, but it could also be critical to your claim for financial compensation. If you wait too long to seek medical treatment, the insurance companies may try to argue that your medical condition is not related to your accident.

2. You Cannot Trust the Insurance Companies.

Despite what they say on television, and despite what your claims adjuster tells you on the phone, the insurance companies are not on your side. They are in business to make money, and they do not make money by paying accident victims maximum compensation.

3. You Need Evidence to Prove Your Claim.

While the insurance companies often attempt to wrongfully deny auto accident victims’ claims, one valid reason the insurance companies can deny your claim is if you do not have evidence of liability. As a result, after an accident, it is important to conduct an investigation as soon as possible. At Malman Law, we work with a team of trusted investigators, accident reconstructionists, engineers, and other professionals who can help prove our clients’ claims for compensation.

4. You May Be Entitled to Significant Compensation.

Under Illinois law, if you were injured in an accident that was someone else’s fault, you are entitled to financial compensation for all of your current and future accident-related losses. If your injuries are severe, the amount you are entitled to recover could be substantial.

5. Mistakes Can Jeopardize Your Financial Recovery.

Importantly, while auto accident victims have clear rights under Illinois law, there are still many mistakes that can jeopardize their financial recovery. From failing to see a doctor to talking to the insurance companies directly, in addition to knowing what to do, you also need to know what not to do in order to protect your rights.

6. Most Auto Accident Cases Settle.

Most auto accident cases settle. While settling can be good thing (if you are sure that you are receiving just compensation for your losses), it can also be dangerous if you allow the insurance companies to take advantage of you. Before you even think about accepting a settlement, you need to make sure you have a clear understanding of the amount you are entitled to recover.

7. An Experienced Auto Accident Attorney Can Help.
