Many people might think they know what to do following a car crash, but when one happens, they are unsure. It is important to know answers to common questions from experienced Chicago car accident attorneys.
If you’ve recently been in a car accident and sustained injuries or property damage, you might have many questions. Injury accidents and car insurance coverage are confusing topics with many specific details. Here we will address several of your most pressing questions.
You don’t have to have legal representation from a Chicago car accident attorney. However, just because you aren’t required to have one doesn’t mean you won’t benefit from having one. Many people injured in car accidents do need legal representation to obtain the compensation they deserve. It’s best to meet with a lawyer as soon as possible and have them review your case to determine if they can help you or not.
Most of our clients ask the same question. The value of each claim varies depending on many factors such as:
At your initial case consultation, we can give you an estimate of how much your case might be worth.
Even though you might feel fine or just a little bit sore after a car accident, there’s no guarantee that you don’t have injuries. You should see a doctor as soon as possible as it will benefit your health and your legal claim. Some injuries, such as whiplash, sometimes don’t show symptoms until several days after an accident.
Typically, the person or party who caused your accident is liable for paying for your medical bills and other damages. A Chicago car accident lawyer can investigate your accident to determine who is at fault and who should be held accountable. Once this is determined, the necessary steps can be initiated to get you the money that you deserve.
If you were hit by an uninsured driver or involved in a hit-and-run accident, it’s imperative that you contact a Chicago car accident attorney. You still deserve compensation for your injuries. It’s not your fault that the other driver wasn’t complying with state law to have car insurance. If you have certain types of elective car insurance coverage, you might be able to file a claim with your own insurance company.
As a general rule, the more complicated the accident or injuries and the more parties involved, the longer it will take to settle a case. The strength of the evidence in the case can also have an impact. It can be difficult to predict how long it might take to resolve your claim. Some claims are settled in a matter of weeks or a few months. Others take several months or maybe even a year or two.
