You Should Be On Even Footing With Insurers
If you have been injured in an auto accident, you should not give a statement to the insurance company of the other driver without first speaking to an attorney. The questions you will be asked are designed to be helpful to the insurance company, not to the person involved in the accident.
At the Law Office of James P. Leahy in Elgin, Illinois, I offer a free initial consultation to answer your questions and discuss your legal options so that you can make informed decisions about what next steps you want to take.
I will give you an honest evaluation of your case. If I don’t believe you have a case or I believe that the evidence is not strong, I will tell you so. If I do believe you have a case, I will personally handle all aspects of your personal injury claim, from gathering of all evidence of liability to preparation for trial or settlement.
Personal Injury Compensation For Auto Accident Victims
If you are injured due to the negligence of another driver, you are entitled to seek compensation for all of the damages you have suffered, including medical expenses, lost wages, disability, and pain and suffering.
To ensure you receive the compensation you deserve, you should:
- Seek medical treatment and follow the recommendations of your doctor
- Save receipts for doctor bills, prescriptions and other expenses related to the accident
- Take pictures of your vehicle, as well as the accident scene
- Do not give a statement to the insurance company
To protect your rights, you should contact an attorney as soon as possible. Once you have hired me, all calls to and from your insurance company or any defendants will come through my office.
