You May Have Rights If You Are Hurt in a Car Accident in Illinois
If someone’s negligent or intentional actions on the road caused your injuries, we encourage you to find out more about your potential financial recovery. To compensate you for the ways a car crash changes victims’ lives, the law generally allows victims of car accidents to pursue compensation for the following:
- Medical expenses
- Lost income or inability to work
- Out-of-pocket costs
- Pain and suffering
- Other damages
This includes expenses in the past, present, and future, as long as those losses are related to your accident injury.
While your doctors, family, and friends can help you during your physical recovery from car accident injuries, an experienced injury attorney can help you through you financial recovery. If you have questions about compensation after a car accident on an Illinois roadway, don’t hesitate to contact our legal team for answers.
Protecting Your Rights After a Car Accident
As you begin your recovery, you may hear from various insurance companies representing other drivers involved in your crash. The goal of an insurance company is simple to understand but sometimes difficult to accept: The less the insurance company pays out in settlements, the more the insurance company gets to keep in profits. This is why it’s important to protect yourself and make sure you are being compensated fully and fairly for what happened.
Right now, it might be hard to concentrate on anything other than your physical pain and your diagnosis. However, even if you’re not yet ready to take legal steps, you can take some important steps now that will help protect your legal and financial recoveries:
- Recognize the ways the insurance company may try to minimize your claim.
- Know the value of your case and how to recognize a fair settlement offer when it is made.
- Know your legal rights. You can begin by reading our free report, The 8 Steps to Follow After Your Illinois Car Accident, and by browsing the free resources available on our website.
- Seek and continue getting medical care for your injuries.
- Gather important information about the accident.
- Watch what you say to others, including insurance companies, other drivers, their lawyers, and even friends and family.
- Refrain from giving any written or recorded statements until you have spoken with an attorney.
You have the right to hire a lawyer to represent you to make sure your legal rights and possible recovery are protected, but even just talking to a lawyer in a free case review can help you better understand what you face. If you have any questions about how to protect your rights after a car accident, don’t hesitate to contact us for help.
