Chicago Car Accident Attorney

Were you injured by another driver’s negligence? The path forward can be exceptionally difficult to navigate on your own. The losses you’re experiencing can make your recovery that much more challenging, and you may have no idea where to begin. None of this is unusual, and you should not try to handle everything on your own – an experienced Chicago car accident attorney will defend your legal rights and pursue your rightful compensation (while you focus on regaining your physical health and well-being). 

Identifying Your Losses

After seeking the medical attention that you need and consulting with an experienced car accident attorney, the next step is identifying the losses (or legal damages) you’ve experienced as a result of the other driver’s negligence. Such damages can include:

  • Property damage to your vehicle
  • Your medical costs, which may include expenses related to ongoing healthcare needs
  • Your lost earnings, which may need to address a decrease in your earning potential
  • Your physical and psychological pain and suffering

Ensuring that your complete damages are well represented in your car accident claim is an important step in supporting your fullest recovery and your legal rights. 

How an Experienced Car Accident Attorney Can Help

You’ve been harmed by another driver’s negligence, and as a result, your claim will proceed through that driver’s car insurance coverage. However, the insurance company – because it is a for-profit enterprise – will do what it can to keep your settlement as low as possible. You’ll look to your car accident attorney to skillfully take on all the following critical tasks:

  • Communicating with the insurance company on your behalf (the less you say to the insurance rep handling your claim, the better off you are)
  • Gathering all the relevant evidence in your claim, including collecting eyewitness testimony
  • Locating expert witnesses with expertise that supports the specifics outlined in your claim
  • Negotiating for a fair settlement that adequately covers your losses in their entirety
  • Preparing for trial (in the event that the insurance company refuses to address your claim in good faith)
  • Helping you understand the legal process and your best options along the way

The Other Driver’s Fault in the Matter

Car accidents are often caused by driver negligence, which can come in a wide range of forms. When we take to the road in our vehicles, we owe one another a considerable duty of care (or responsibility to one another’s safety). When motorists fail to take this responsibility seriously enough, it can lead to dangerous car accidents. Such negligence can take all the following forms:

  • Failure to follow the rules of the road
  • Distraction
  • Exhaustion
  • Impairment
  • Aggression
  • Excess speed
