Chicago Accident Attorney BEGS You to do ONE THING
Chicago Accident Attorney, Scott DeSalvo here.
In this video, I am going to beg and plead for you and your family to do this one thing if a loved one has been injured in an accident.
So I am a little bit depressed today. You may be able to tell that I have lower energy than normal. I am shooting this video at home after work because something happened today that I want to tell you about.
I got a phone call from a lady whose husband died. She is a really nice lady. It really bothered me that she lost her husband. They’ve got a kid at home so the child lost his father. She was taking advice from family and friends about not contacting a lawyer. I’ve talked about it in my other videos that there are deadlines for filing lawsuits.
The deadline for your lawsuit depends on the kind of case, who you’re suing and a bunch of circumstances like that. Her deadline got blown.
She didn’t consult with an attorney.
She followed family advice and advice from her friends to not get an attorney involved. It ruined my day. I can’t help this lady. My whole career is focused on helping people who have these sorts of problems. So it really bothers me.
I guess my point is, is you’re not going to be able to figure out these deadlines yourself and you’re not going to be able to deal with the insurance companies and the lawyers they hire by yourself.
Injury lawyers like me offer a free consultation. Honestly, it’s my preference that you contact me obviously because it’s how I make a living. But if you don’t like me or there’s somebody else you want to talk to, if you’ve been involved in an accident please speak with an attorney.
A free consultation means that the phone call is free and that the advice is free. A decent lawyer is going to be able to tell you whether you have a case or not. Also, most importantly they are going to tell you the steps you will have to take to protect your rights.
If this lady I spoke with had spoken with any amateur lawyer, she would have known to do some things to protect her rights. I really feel for her and I feel for her family. I really wish there was something I could do for her but these are hard deadlines. I am still going to do some more research and see if I can help her.
As a lawyer I feel like we always repeat these things; even in these videos I feel like I keep repeating that there are deadlines and free consultation.
It’s breaking my heart. There are thousands of lawyers who do what I do in Illinois just in the Chicagoland area. So please, if you or a loved one has been hurt, please go get a consultation either from my office or somebody else.
The last thing I’ll say is if it’s a big complicated case, don’t go to your family bankruptcy lawyer or your divorce lawyer. Make sure you get a referral to an attorney who specializes in injury law.
Sorry I am a bit glum today but please take these steps to protect your family. Thanks for watching the video.
