Personal Injury Lawsuit Attorney Serving all of Chicago

Very Frustrated ManWhether you suffer from a car accident injury, medical malpractice, or some other form of negligent act, you have the legal right to seek compensation against those who are responsible. This compensation may come from a settlement received outside of court or through an award made by a judge or jury. When you make the decision to file a lawsuit, you may wonder if you should hire a personal injury attorney or seek compensation on your own.

Injury Attorney’s and Compensation

An injury attorney is not free, which is why most victims avoid hiring one. They think that if they hire an attorney, most of their settlement will go toward attorney fees and they will be left with less. While it is true that a percentage of a victim’s settlement goes to the attorney, a victim still walks away with more in compensation. That is because an attorney factors in costs of the trial, including their contingency fee, alongside all expenses and damages the victim encounters.

Most importantly, your attorney does not receive a fee if they do not win your case.

When Injuries are Minor

If injuries are minor, you may be reluctant to hire an attorney. While it is true that your injuries may be minor now, there are still reasons to hire an attorney, including:

  1. Your minor injuries could become major issues later. You cannot predict the future. What seems like a minor injury right now could haunt you the rest of your life – or manifest into something more serious down the road. If you accept a settlement offer for your minor injury, you cannot seek compensation later.
  2. You still receive pain and suffering damages. Even if your injuries are not life-threatening, you still deserve compensation for your pain and suffering. This includes physical, emotional, and mental traumas you suffer because of your accident. Some injuries are more psychologically demanding than the physical pain. You could suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder the rest of your life after an accident, even if your injuries have healed.

Your Insurance Company is Not Working for You

You may pay them a premium each month, but your insurance company is not there for you. Instead, they are there to protect their revenue. They don’t want to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars in settlements. Therefore, they take advantage when a victim does not have an attorney.

An attorney knows how to negotiate with insurance claims adjusters and ensure that they don’t force you into an inadequate settlement for your accident.
