Experienced Illinois Personal Injury Lawyers For Auto Accident Claims
There are some things in life that we simply cannot control. No matter how cautious or safe of a driver you are, sometimes motor vehicle accidents are inevitable. Being involved in an accident can result from hazardous conditions brought about by inclement weather, technical malfunctions from a car, or even the negligence of another driver. In the worst case scenario, some major accidents can lead to significant injuries that may end up requiring medical treatment. A motor vehicle accident can change your life in an instant, leaving you with medical bills, pain and suffering, and untold hardships as you recover from your auto injury. Depending on the level of severity, this setback can cause a lapse in ability to work, and lost wages can pile up quickly, creating a financial burden that can be hard to bear for anyone over time.
As a law firm, we understand the complexity that accident cases can bring into a client’s life. If your accident was caused by a careless driver or another negligent party, know that they should be held accountable for the fault at hand. In any case you have rights and the legal team at Donahue & Walsh can protect them. We truly stand on the principle that knowledge is power. A major goal of ours is to ensure that our clients are informed about the details of their case, educated on all possible outcomes, and feel confident as we navigate the litigation process alongside you. One of the major reasons why it is a critically important decision to choose a competent accident attorney to work with you is so that they can go toe to toe with the insurance companies on your behalf.
It should go without saying that experiencing a motor vehicle accident, regardless of the severity, may bring about one of the most stressful periods of your life. In addition to any physical injury, many victims of car accidents experience damage to their vehicle, in addition to emotional trauma related to the incident. Many of the biggest insurers are aware of this, and unfortunately tend to take advantage of victims while they are at their lowest point. The tactic often used to fool victims is quickly presenting a low cash offer. While this amount may seem appealing during such a low point, the initial number presented often is not fair enough to cover the full amount that you deserve. To fulfill the bare minimum of their responsibility, an insurance company should compensate you for any and all expenses related to the accident and its ensuing consequences. This can include, but should not be limited to: medical bills, physical therapy costs, vehicle damage, lost wages, rental transportation or rideshare costs, mental health services, and more.
Handling the particulars of insurance claims can be tedious and complex. That is why, after contacting emergency services following your incidents, your next point of contact should be to an attorney skilled in personal injury cases.
