Most personal injuries occur when one person or party doesn’t act reasonably and causes, either deliberately or negligently, injury to another. If something like this happened to you, you likely have many questions. You are not expected to know all of the answers, but you can hire a Joliet personal injury attorney to handle your claim and pursue fair compensation for your injuries.
At Pinkston Law Group, PC, we represent clients from all backgrounds who have suffered personal injuries such as involving the following:
If you suffered an injury that was the fault, even partially, of another individual, it is time to talk to an experienced Joliet personal injury lawyer. You have rights under Illinois civil statutes, but those rights can expire if your case is not filed on time.
While you are not required to hire a personal injury attorney to handle your claim, it is always a good idea to talk to one about your case before making any decisions. You might be wondering if you can work out your injury claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company and not need to contact an attorney. Most likely, you can work out a settlement with them.
However, since you do not have legal counsel, insurance adjusters know that they can take advantage of you. They will take every opportunity to do so. However, if you want a fair settlement that will compensate you for your damages, it is imperative that you hire a personal injury attorney to be your advocate. In fact, studies show that personal injury plaintiffs who hire an attorney typically receive significantly more than those who walk this road alone.
Sometimes insurance adjusters will try to reach out to you as soon as possible after your injury claim is initiated. They know that if they can talk to you before you talk to a personal injury attorney, you are more likely to settle with them for an amount that is less than fair. If they are successful, they save the insurance company money. Do not let them be successful at your expense. Even if you think they are offering you a fair settlement, it is best to meet with a lawyer first and see what their legal opinion is.
Remember that the insurance company has many teams working for them to help their money-saving agenda. Shouldn’t you have at least one advocate on your side to help level your playing field?
Time is of the essence if you want to pursue your legal rights after sustaining a personal injury. Under Illinois statutes, you only have a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit. The sooner you reach out for legal help, the better your chances will be of receiving adequate compensation for your damages.
