Is It Worth It to Get a Chicago and Illinois Auto Crash Lawyer?

You may be able to settle a typical fender-bender case with no injuries or minor injuries on your own. If the insurance company offers to pay for the full damage to your car, Chicago or Illinois emergency room visit and throws in a little extra for the inconvenience, an auto crash lawyer may not be able to add much value to your claim. However, with more significant injuries or in certain other circumstances, it is almost always worth it to get a lawyer for a car accident. The important thing is to never settle your case without speaking to a Chicago and Illinois auto crash lawyer first. Our consultation is free, so call us today at 312-500-HURT if you have been injured in a car accident to discuss your case.

Here are some of the common situations in which it is not only worth it but imperative to your future to get an Illinois auto crash lawyer in Chicago:

  • You sustained an injury. While an insurance company may pay for a quick ER visit, injuries that require further care will also require further payment. An insurance company may try to downplay the severity of your injuries or the necessity of the treatment. You may also lose time off work or be limited in your future earning potential. Our Chicago-based Illinois auto crash lawyer knows how to calculate the exact dollar amount of your damages, and uses our network of medical and economic experts to determine the cost of your future medical treatment.
  • The insurance company is not cooperating. Insurance adjusters are professional negotiators whose main interest is the company's profits - not fairly compensating you - and most of them are very good at their jobs. Unfortunately for them, so are we. Our Chicago and Illinois auto crash lawyer has over two decades of experience standing up to bullies like resistant and devious insurance companies. We know the tactics insurance companies use to minimize your claim. Chicago and Illinois insurance companies fear us because they know we take on and win the tough cases. If you think you are being cheated out of the money you are owed, call Burger Law today at 312-500-HURT.
  • There is a dispute over who is at fault. Sometimes negligent drivers just do not want to take responsibility for their actions. Other times an insurance company will try to pay you less by pinning part of the accident on you. Illinois is a comparative negligence state, meaning that you will receive lower compensation if you can be legally blamed for part of the accident. Illinois Compiled Statutes 625 ILCS 5/11-401 stipulates that if you are blamed for over 50 of the accident, you will not be compensated at all. Our Chicago-based auto crash lawyer at Burger Law knows how to determine liability in motor vehicle accidents and will make sure to hold the at-fault party responsible for their actions.
  • There are other complications to your case. Maybe your accident involved multiple vehicles, or you were hit by a drunk driver who somehow got out of his criminal charges and is denying liability. Illinois law is complicated and it can be tough for the average person to know how to proceed in complicated cases. When you hire a Chicago auto crash lawyer from Burger Law, you are getting a knowledgeable and dedicated auto crash legal team who knows the ins and outs of the Illinois and Chicago legal systems and handles all the legal aspects of your case for you.
  • The injury resulted in wrongful death. The most tragic car accidents are fatal. When that happens, you need the personal and compassionate care and counsel of the car crash attorneys at Burger Law. We know you can never be truly compensated for the death of a loved one, but we will stand by your side to ensure you receive justice and that your financial future is secure.

The average driver will be in three or four accidents in their lifetime. While that means most people may acquire some experience handling car accident cases, it does not make the average person an expert. Your Chicago and Illinois auto crash lawyer at Burger Law has seen hundreds of car accident cases and knows how liability and negligence cases work. If you sustained an injury in a car accident because somebody else broke the rules, contact Burger Law today.

11 Steps to Take After a Chicago or Illinois Auto Crash

Getting in a car accident is confusing and stressful, especially when you are following all the rules and the crash is caused by another driver's negligence. It can be hard to know what you should do in the immediate aftermath. The auto crash lawyer team at Burger law has seen every type of Chicago and Illinois crash and knows what you need to do to stay safe and help your car accident claim. There are eleven steps you need to take if you are involved in a car accident. Some of them are required by Illinois law, and some are extremely helpful when filing your car injury claim with your Chicago and Illinois auto crash lawyer.

  1. Stop your car. Under Illinois Compiled Statutes 625 ILCS 5/11-401 and 625 ILCS 5/11-402 it is illegal to leave the scene of an accident if it resulted in damage to a car, personal injury or death.
  2. Make sure you are safe. If you and your passengers are not safe right where you are, the first thing you need to do is move your car to a safe place on the side of the road, if possible. If the accident took place in the middle of the street or a busy intersection, remaining where you are could lead to further damage and injuries. If your vehicle is already in a safe place, do not move it until law enforcement tells you to.
  3. Render first aid. If anyone involved in the accident is injured, you need to render aid to them as best you can. Not only is it required by law, it is the right thing to do.
  4. Call the police. Police are trained to deal with any situation that may arise because of an accident. When the police arrive, let them take over the scene. Police know how to determine fault in accidents, and having a police report will go a long way toward helping prove your case.
  5. Exchange information with the other driver. Illinois law requires any driver involved in an accident to give their name, address and the registration number of the vehicle to the other driver.
  6. Obtain contact info for any eyewitnesses. Eyewitnesses will be able to corroborate your story if the negligent driver disputes fault. When you have this information, your Illinois and Chicago auto crash lawyer at Burger Law will be able to contact them to take an official deposition.
  7. Take pictures. If you can do it safely, take pictures of the car accident scene and the surrounding area. Your auto crash lawyer and our Chicago and Illinois car crash experts will be able to use them to help your case. For example, if there were no brake marks on the street, it may help prove that the other driver was not paying attention to the road when they hit you.
  8. Write down everything you can remember about the crash. Your memory of the events will be best directly after the crash. By writing down every detail you can, you can be sure that you will not forget anything that might be useful when making your claim.
  9. Seek Medical Care. When you are injured in a car accident, it is vitally important to seek medical care for your injuries. In order to be fairly compensated for your injuries, you need to have documentation of what the medical expenses are and what medical treatments you need. Go to the nearest Chicago or Illinois emergency room if you notice any injuries. Sometimes, you do not feel pain immediately after a car accident. But if you do develop symptoms of an injury four or five days later, it is important to go see your Chicago doctor as soon as you can.
  10. File accident reports. Do not wait to file a report with your or the other driver's insurance company. Some insurance companies have a window for how long after the accident you can file a claim. Additionally, Illinois law requires you to file a crash report if the accident caused death, bodily injury or over $1,500 in property damage.
  11. Call Burger Law. Our auto crash lawyer team knows how to prove negligence and maximize your compensation. The sooner you call us, the sooner we can begin investigating the scene and gathering other evidence such as surveillance footage. When you hire our Chicago-based Illinois auto accident law firm, we start working on your case right away and do not let up until you receive a full financial recovery. We handle every aspect of your case so you can focus on healing and rehabilitating your injuries.

You only have one chance to win your claim, and because of the Illinois Statute of Limitations laid out in 735 ILCS 5/13-202, the clock is already ticking on when you can file your claim. If you have been injured in a car crash, do not wait another instant. Call Burger Law right away at 312-500-HURT to get maximum compensation for all of your damages.
