Chicago Auto Accident Attorneys

When you’re involved in any type of auto accident, it’s likely that your vehicle was damaged and that you sustained injuries. As stated by the American Association for Safe International Road Travel statistics, there are an estimated 4.4 million people injured in a road crash each year in the US. Additionally, it is believed approximately 38,000 people die every year after being involved in an auto accident. Ultimately you can’t control what reckless drivers do, but you can control how you handle your auto accident case. 

Auto accidents can be complex and can result in you experiencing emotional and physical trauma alongside financial strain. Should you have been hurt in an auto accident recently, you need to consider hiring a Chicago auto accident attorney to handle your case. An attorney from The Horwitz Law Group can guide you through the various legal proceedings and help you gain the compensation you could be entitled to receiving. 

Why You Should Hire An Auto Accident Attorney

When you have been involved in an auto accident, you are likely focusing on your recovery. This means you might not have as much time as you need to initiate an auto accident claim. An attorney can take some of the stress off your shoulders by handling the legal proceedings. 

Additionally, auto accident litigation can be fairly difficult to understand and navigate. Yet when you hire an auto accident attorney, they will know the various laws and timeframes in which you need to file your claim and complete and submit documentation. Without an attorney, you could miss the timeframe in which you can submit a claim, or you could have your claim rejected due to incorrect filing or completion procedures. 

Moreover, an auto accident attorney will work with you to ensure an insurance company does not try to take advantage of you. It’s notoriously well known that insurance companies try to offer significantly low compensation amounts that are far less than what a case deserves. A lawyer will ensure you are not treated unfairly and that you don’t accept an unjust settlement.
