Why Do I Need an Attorney?
The National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA) reports that more than 30 million people in the U.S. suffer injuries in motor vehicle accidents each year, and around 40,000 of those injuries prove to be fatal. Also, according to the Illinois Department of Public Health, around 30 percent of the estimated 100,000 nursing home residents in the state suffer from some type of abuse or neglect at elder care facilities. Furthermore, Diedrich Healthcare published that, in 2014, more than $200 million dollars was paid to victims of medical malpractice in Illinois alone.
Considering the statistics, your chances of suffering an injury due to someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing are pretty high. A serious injury can affect virtually all aspects of your life, and the fact that your pain was caused by a preventable accident only adds to your level of frustration and sense of injustice. You may know that you can pursue compensation to help cover your expenses and losses, but you may have no idea where to begin.
Most people are unfamiliar with the law and how to go about proving that someone else was at fault for their injuries. These types of claims require a lot of documentation and evidence to support them, and without help, you are likely going to make mistakes or not know where to turn to get the documentation and information you will need.
The types of information you need include the official accident report if you were injured in a vehicular crash, the first report of injury if you were injured on someone else’s premises, documentation regarding your medical treatment and expenses, your statement about how the injury occurred and how it’s affected your life, among others.
The first course of action will likely be to negotiate with the other party’s insurance company. If an appropriate settlement can’t be reached, your case will probably have to go to trial in order to get you the compensation you deserve.
Whether negotiating with the insurance company or seeking damages in court, you will need the experience and skills of a licensed, experienced legal professional to increase your chances of successfully navigating the process and obtaining compensation.
