When to Contact a Car Accidents Lawyer in Chicago

Written by Malman Law, reviewed by Steve J. Malman.

After a Chicago car crash, victims are generally shaken up, confused about their next step and overwhelmed. And in most cases, they are advised to contact a car accidents lawyer in Chicago. How do you know whether your car accident in Chicago warrants contacting a legal professional?

  1. You Are the Injured Party. If you were involved in a Chicago car crash that was not your fault, you may be surprised that the process of getting compensated for damage to your vehicle and injuries incurred is not cut and dried. The insurance companies (yours and the other party’s) are going to try to settle your claim as inexpensively as possible.
  2. The Other Party is Uninsured: If the other driver is at fault but does not have any insurance, your Chicago car crash will be even more complicated to collect damages from. There are car accidents lawyers in Chicago who see this scenario on a regular basis, and can help you navigate this tricky situation.
  3. Your Insurance Company is Unresponsive: As mentioned above, the priority for the insurance company is to settle your claim quickly and easily. Their desired outcome and your desired outcome may not be one and the same.
  4. You are Concerned About Your Expenses: If you are worried about not receiving a settlement or that your expenses will exceed the compensation, contact a car accidents lawyer in Chicago.

If you are injured in a car accident in Chicago, your primary concern should be recovering from any injuries and repairing damage to your vehicle. A car accidents lawyer in Chicago is your best resource for making sure that you receive a fair settlement so that you can focus on these primary goals.
