Hiring A Personal Injury Lawyer
If you have been injured and you have good reason to believe your injuries were the result of negligence on the part of another person or entity you have the right to claim damages. If you have a very simple and straight forward case you probably don’t need to hire a Chicago personal injury lawyer but, in the majority of personal injury cases the assistance of a professional is needed. The law is not simple; a layperson that does not have an understanding of the law can often do themselves more harm than good.
Dealing with insurance companies:
There will be an insurance company involved in any personal injury action. The only concern of an insurance adjuster is to save his or her employer money; they are not the least bit interested in your current or long term condition or situation. After you have been injured you can expect to be contacted by an adjuster who will attempt to get a full statement from you, statement that can be used against you if the case ever gets to court. At the same time you can expect to get an offer of compensation based on your signing off on future litigation. No matter how tempted you may be to accept the offer; don’t. Always speak to a Chicago personal injury lawyer before you have any dealings whatsoever with an insurance company.
Personal injury law:
