Auto Accident Attorney Chicago

Unfortunately, Chicago and heavy traffic just seem to belong together, and car accidents are common. If you’ve been injured as a result of another driver’s negligence, obtaining the compensation to which you are entitled and that you need to recover from your losses can be a difficult process, which is why you need a dedicated auto accident attorney in Chicago on your side.

Car Accidents and Driver Negligence

Car accidents are often caused by driver negligence, which can come in many dangerous varieties, including:

Negligent drivers are out there, and they make our roadways less safe for all of us.

Your Damages

The injuries you sustain in a car accident caused by another driver’s negligence constitute the damages addressed in your car accident claim. These damages are divided into economic and non-economic categories. Your economic damages include those things that are associated with a cost, including:

  • Property damage to your vehicle
  • Your medical expenses
  • Your lost wages

If your accident is serious, your medical costs and lost earnings can be exceptionally high, but the physical and emotional pain and suffering (which are your non-economic damages) you suffer can be even more difficult to overcome. Ensuring that your claim addresses all of your damages in their entirety is critical to your future health and well-being.

The Insurance Company

You’ve been injured by another motorist’s negligence, which means your claim will proceed through that driver’s insurance policy. While the insurance company is paid to cover your losses, this doesn’t mean that obtaining just compensation will be a straightforward process. In fact, the insurance company is motivated by profits, which means it is invested in keeping your settlement as low as it can get away with, and towards this end, it has many tools at its disposal, including:

  • Denying your claim outright in the hope that you’ll drop the matter
  • Stalling the claim process in the hope that you’ll give up in frustration
  • Making the claim process so convoluted and complex that you give up in exasperation
  • Making an early settlement offer before you are completely aware of the full extent of the damages you’ve suffered

Your Injuries

It’s important to note that even very serious injuries can be slow to present with identifiable symptoms – until they develop into injuries that are more difficult to treat and that are even more dangerous. If you’re involved in a car accident of any magnitude, it’s always in your best interest to seek immediate medical attention and to carefully follow your doctor’s instructions. This is the best practice for your health and the best way to demonstrate to the insurance company that you take your injuries seriously – and expect them to do the same.
