How Can a Car Accident Lawyer Help?

Investigate the Accident

The best car accident lawyer Chicago has the resources and knowledge to thoroughly investigate your accident. We will order police reports, gather witness statements, take photos of property damage and accident scenes, check traffic camera footage, hire expert witnesses if needed, and take all steps necessary to build a strong claim.

Deal with Insurance Companies

Insurance carriers often try to minimize claim payouts. An attorney levels the playing field and deals with insurers so you can focus on recovery. We know all the tactics insurers use and can maximize your settlement. We will handle the negotiations while keeping your best interests in mind.

File Claims Properly

There are strict procedures and deadlines when filing insurance claims. If these are not met properly, your claim can be denied. Your car accident lawyer Aurora will make sure all the correct forms are filled out properly and deadlines are met.

Prove Liability

The burden of proof will be on you to prove the other driver was at fault and liable for damages and injuries. A lawyer will use evidence like police reports, videos, photographs, eyewitness statements and more to build a compelling argument that removes doubt about fault.

Handle Complex Legal Processes

Laws related to insurance claims and injury lawsuits can be complicated. A lawyer knows how to navigate complex state laws, legal procedures, insurance policies, and courtroom rules. We handle the complexity so you can focus on your recovery.

Negotiate with Insurance Companies

Insurance providers often make lowball offers hoping injured parties will accept less than they deserve. Our lawyers have negotiated successful settlements for decades and know how to appraise claims and negotiate for maximum compensation.

Take the Case to Court if Needed

If a fair settlement cannot be reached through negotiations, your attorney has the experience to take the case to court. We are not afraid to file lawsuits and litigate in court if needed to get clients the compensation they deserve. Less than 5% of accident cases actually go to trial, but your lawyer will not hesitate to take that step if necessary.

Help with Bills

We work with a network of stellar medical providers that will treat you on a lien basis. This allows you to get great medical care without paying out-of-pocket. Our lawyers also assist in negotiations with health providers to reduce expenses. We can provide referrals to trustworthy mechanics, vehicle rental companies, and other services as well.

Focus on Healing

With your car accident lawyer handling investigations, claim filings, negotiations, legal complexities, bills and more, you can focus fully on healing from your injuries. We handle everything related to your accident case so you can concentrate on your health.
