Car accidents are the most common type of personal injury cases Taxman, Pollock, Murray & Bekkerman, LLC handles. Every driver knows that the road can be a treacherous place. There are over ten million registered motor vehicles in the state of Illinois, and about 8.8 million licensed drivers. In this day in age, many of those drivers are distracted and not paying attention to their surroundings. It is not surprising then that According to the Illinois Department of Transportation, in 2011, there were 281,788 crashes in Illinois Those crashes resulted in 918 deaths and 84,172 personal injuries
Injuries sustained in a car accident range from whiplash to broken bones, ligament/muscular injuries, and even debilitating spinal injuries, and/or death. It will be difficult to get insurance companies to cover the entirety of your care, and depending on the type of injury, medical care may be necessary for years. Never limit your treatment because the insurance company is pressuring you.
The goal of the insurance company is to pay out the smallest amount possible to settle your car accident injury claim. It’s the reason insurance companies make billions of dollars every year, and they continually employ persuasive adjusters and high-priced attorneys to make sure their dollars stay out of your hands. It’s also common for the insurance company to use excuses to deny or limit your claim. The car crash wasn’t your fault, and you shouldn’t feel guilty.
Time is a critical factor in any car accident claim. It is possible that evidence in your case may be lost, witnesses may disappear, the statute of limitations will pass, and memories will fade. The smallest mistake can cost you, and without an attorney you may never be fully compensated for your injury claim. And even if you don’t retain an attorney, at least consult with an experienced car accident injury claims lawyer so that they can provide you with free guidance.
