Why Do I Need an Injury Attorney?
When you’re injured in an accident that was not your fault, you could find your life turned upside down in an instant. Along with being forced to deal with pain and medical treatment for the injuries you suffered, you could find yourself struggling to stay afloat financially. While medical bills pile up and you continue to miss days from work, the situation can quickly become overwhelming.
While hiring an attorney can’t prevent the accident from happening, it is the best (and often only) way to recover the full compensation you’re owed. An experienced injury lawyer will evaluate your case, determine how much compensation you deserve, and build a strong case on your behalf.
If you choose to file a claim independently, you might find it challenging to get a fair settlement offer from the at-fault party’s insurer. An attorney who understands the value of your claim will advocate for you and reject lowball settlement offers. When an injury compromises your financial stability, your career, and your health, an injury lawyer supports you and fights to make sure you don’t settle for less than you deserve.

Many injury victims face incredible financial stressors, and for this reason, the mere thought of hiring an injury attorney seems overwhelming.

Can a Lawyer Help with My Medical Bills?
The price that hospitals charge insurance companies for services are not always the absolute rock-bottom prices that they’re willing to accept. The inflated nature of medical bills often leaves some room for negotiation. A skilled injury attorney may be able to negotiate a better price for your medical bills, will negotiate on your behalf so you will be able to wait to pay medical bills until you’ve received a settlement, or put you on an affordable payment plan. Your lawyer will work to ensure that you get to a settlement without experiencing financial stress or strain.
When Should I Call a Lawyer?
In Ilinois, the majority of injury victims have two years to file a claim against the responsible party. The clock on this time limitation begins from the moment you are injured. While you have up to two years to take action, reaching out to an attorney sooner than later will help the outcome of your case. When you contact an attorney quickly, it provides your lawyer with much-needed time to investigate your case by obtaining any relevant records, police reports, and witness accounts. The longer you wait to hire an attorney to represent you, the more challenging it will be for your lawyer to collect the evidence needed to make a persuasive case on your behalf. Crucial evidence could be removed, be cleaned up, overwritten, or otherwise disappear over time, so be sure to take action and call a lawyer as soon as possible after your accident.
