If you have been injured in a car accident, it is crucial that you discuss your claim with a lawyer before you speak to the insurance company. It is very important to not give a recorded statement to the insurance company without the guidance of a skilled lawyer. Anything that you say to an insurance company representative can be used against you in any future court proceeding. This is true regardless of whether you are seeking to recover against the liability insurance company of another driver who injured you, or you are seeking to recover from your own insurance company because the driver who injured you has little or no insurance (uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage).
Unfortunately, insurance companies are not in the business of making sure accident victims receive the amount of compensation they are entitled to as a result of an injury. They are in the business of making money, and the less money they pay on a claim, the more money they make. In fact, in recent years many insurance companies have begun to drastically reduce the amount they will pay to settle claims, or they have refused to settle claims altogether.
As a result, it is critical that you hire a Chicago car accident attorney with the experience and know-how to protect your rights against insurance companies. Victims in automobile accidents may be entitled to compensation for their past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, disability, lost wages, and the damage to their automobile and other property. Only an experienced attorney can protect your rights.
