HomeChicago Car Accident Attorneys

When you get in your car to go somewhere, you naturally anticipate that other drivers will drive safely around you and obey traffic laws. It can be extremely shocking if you end up in an accident, especially one that is not your fault, but the fault of another negligent driver. While you can’t undo what just happened, you can take specific steps to ensure that you protect your legal interests moving forward. One of these steps is to meet with Chicago car accident attorneys from The Horwitz Law Group.

What Causes Chicago Car Accidents?

Car accidents in and around the Chicago area are caused by many factors. Sadly, most of them can be traced back to human error and negligence. If another person failed to uphold their duty to drive with care and common sense, therefore causing an accident, they might be liable for your damages. Common causes of car accidents include:

Should You Talk To The Insurance Company?

After suffering damages in a car accident, you have many rights and options. One of the first things you should do is exercise your right to hire a car accident attorney to represent you. It is not uncommon for insurance companies to contact injured individuals as soon as possible after an accident in an attempt to get them to settle, unbeknownst to them, for much less than their case could be worth if they hired an attorney. Contact an injury attorney first, before you do anything else.

Don’t be fooled by these tactics. It is not wise to provide a statement to the insurance company or settle your claim without first consulting with an experienced car accident lawyer. More often than not, injured individuals who are represented by an attorney will receive significantly higher settlements than those who are not. Having legal representation shows the insurance company that you are aware of your rights and intend to pursue the compensation you are entitled to receive.

Once you have secured the services of an attorney, they can negotiate any settlements with the insurance company. Your attorney is aware of what your case could be worth if it goes to court and will inform you as to what a fair settlement for your damages might be. If the insurance company refuses to offer you a fair settlement, your attorney can take your case to trial if you want.
