Lansing, IL Car Accident Injuries
Neck and back injuries are the two most common injuries after a car crash. These are most common in front rear and side impact collisions. They occur when your body is moved violently backwards or forwards or side to side. If you are over the age of 35 or if you have a health history which includes a neck injury or back injury in your past, you are far more likely to suffer a new injury in your Lansing, IL car accident.
The problem with neck or back injuries is that they begin the same way, whether they are short-term muscle strains or longer-term and more serious injuries. That's why no matter what kind of injury you have, minor or major and permanent, it is key to go to the doctor right away.
When you decide which doctor to treat with after your car accident, it is very important to deal with a doctor who is familiar with how car accident injury claims work. This way, your doctor will record all of the pertinent information in your medical records which an insurance company will expect to see before they agree to pay any money. And, you want to Doctor who is honest and communicates well with you. You do not want a doctor who doesn't spend time with you, doesn't explain the injuries or the treatment protocol. You want a doctor who communicates with you and your attorney so that the three of us can cooperate to make your case a success.
A friend of mine referred me to Mr. DeSalvo, and when I spoke with him over the telephone, he seemed like he was very straight up. He kept me informed and gave me his opinion on the case, but he let me make my own decision. He made me feel very confident about my case. I would refer a friend or family member who needed a lawyer to him.”
Can You Tell Me How Long it Takes to Resolve a Car Accident in Lansing, IL?
I almost always get asked this question by accident victims. The answer will vary depending on the circumstances. It may take years.
Until you see your doctor, we can begin to resolve your case. Until you heal as much as you can, this will need to be done. It should be painless after some time. As a result of permanent injuries, one can suffer both permanent disabilities and chronic pain.
In retrospect, it makes sense. If you've been injured in a car accident, we won't settle your case until we know exactly how it happened. We can take care of any surgery you need. Clients who require surgery should wait until they are fully recovered from the surgery. Some surgeries require other surgeries to be performed. A single operation is not always the solution for some problems. In spite of a successful surgery, permanent damage can still occur.
Injuries that are permanent are much more valuable than those that are temporary. Please seek appropriate medical care prior to settlement.
Therefore, it is impossible to predict when a case will settle. We have a completely trained staff who understand how important it is to get your money as soon as possible. We typically settle our cases within a year of the accident. That's on par with other accident lawyers. Clients get excellent service as soon as possible.

What is the Value of My Lansing, IL Car Accident?
A lot depends on the severity and permanence of your injuries as well as the amount of medical treatment you get after a car accident. The more serious and permanent your injuries are, as well as the more medical attention you receive, the more valuable the case is. If your injuries did not last long and you received little medical care, your case likely has a lower value.
There is no reason to be discouraged by that. In the case of a car accident, it is advisable to seek medical treatment and legal representation as soon as possible. At the beginning of a case, it is impossible to know how serious or how long your injuries will be. People I've represented have waited to see a doctor or lawyer and it ultimately led to their cases being lost. The patients did not think they were actually injured that badly or they believed that the pain in their neck or back or their shoulder or knee would just go away with time so they did not want to bother with going to the doctor. This was a really big mistake. It was also a mistake to avoid consulting an attorney.
Lawyers and claim adjusters often work on behalf of insurance companies representing people who have been injured in a car accident in order to trick them into saying or doing things that reduce the value of their case. Rarely do I come across someone who has signed away all of their rights without knowing it. I think this is terrible.
People can consult me for free so that they can gain an understanding of their rights and know whether their case is strong or whether it faces some challenges.
Here are some things I can tell you about Lansing, IL car accidents based on my over 20 years of legal experience:
Small cases will often settle for four or five figures as well. Usually, mid-range car accident cases settle for five figures or less. If there is enough insurance and serious injuries are involved, very serious car accident cases may settle for six- to eight-figure settlements.
As you can see, you have no idea how large a case will be early on in the case. The doctors will be able to tell after some time how severe your injuries are and whether you are recovering or if you will have long-term problems. In any case, getting a lawyer right away is a good idea so that the lawyer can position your case for maximum strength and maximum value. Hiring a lawyer, or at least consulting with a lawyer, is one of the worst decisions you can make when you have been in a car accident.
