Champaign, IL Injury Statistics
After a car accident, neck and back injuries are the most common. Rear-end collisions and side impacts are the most common causes. They will occur if you move violently backwards, forwards, or sideways. Those over 35 or those with a history of back or neck injuries are more likely to suffer new injuries in a Champaign, IL car accident.
Injuries to the neck and back begin similarly, whether they are short-term muscle strains or longer-term and more severe injuries. Any injury, no matter how minor or serious, should be seen by a doctor as soon as possible.
The ideal doctor to choose after a car accident is one who knows how to handle car accident injury claims. Therefore, your doctor will record all of the necessary information in your medical record that an insurance company will need to proceed with your claim. A doctor should be honest and communicate well with you. It is not fair for you to be treated by a physician who does not spend time with you, who does not explain the injuries or 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.”
In Champaign, IL, How Long Does it Take to Settle a Car Accident?
A motor vehicle accident victim almost always asks me this question. It depends on the case. Sometimes it takes years.
Most people don't realize that we can't begin to resolve your case until you've seen your doctor. This will need to be done until you've healed as much as you can. Ideally, you will not feel pain anymore. Permanent injuries can result in permanent disabilities as well as permanent pain in the body.
Upon reflection, it makes sense. In Champaign, IL, we won't settle a car accident injury case until we know exactly how you were injured. Please let us know if you require surgery. I advise clients who need surgery to wait until they are fully recovered from the surgery and after the surgery. Some surgeries require other surgeries. Some problems can't be fixed with one operation. It is still possible to sustain permanent damage even if all goes well during surgery.
An injury that is permanent and serious is worth much more than an injury that is temporary and minor. We need to thoroughly investigate this case before settling it and make sure you receive proper medical care.
Due to this, predicting the length of time it will take to settle a case is impossible. I have a completely trained staff who understand that getting your money as soon as possible is a very high priority in my office. Typically, we settle our cases within a year of the accident or shortly thereafter. That's as good as any other car accident lawyer. Our clients get excellent service quickly.

Is it Necessary to Talk to a Car Accident Lawyer in Champaign, IL?
It's surprising that many people don't realize that car insurers control injury claims. Car accident insurance companies hire attorneys the minute you are involved in a fender bender or more serious accident. Insurers have written scripts for taking recorded statements from people involved in accidents who are possibly injured. Scripts such as these are designed to minimize how much money an injured party ultimately receives. There were tricky questions and they were asked in a way that might make you say things you might not fully understand or may not fully mean.
In my experience, I see this all the time. It is rare for me to hear a recording of a client's statement before I represent them. My expectations are usually high when I see a statement like that, and I am rarely disappointed. It is common for my clients' cases to be adversely affected or to be outright ruined by things that can adversely affect them.
So, I tell people not to record their statements before they are represented. In addition, be careful when signing any papers and when talking to the insurance company on the phone.
From day one, insurance companies have a lawyer representing them. Rich people are able to afford such things because they are wealthy. Most injured people don't have a steady income and can't hire a lawyer.
It is for this reason that personal injury attorneys offer free consultations. Whether it's in person or by phone or even over Zoom, I offer 100% free and no obligation consultations. You can find out what your rights are, what your case's danger zones are, and how you can stay away from them. I will tell you if your case is good or bad and I can sign you up right over the Internet through email or by Docusign. If you prefer, I can mail you the sign up paperwork or meet with you in my office. It is also possible for me to drive to your area to sign up your case.
A large part of my law practice consists of helping people who are injured in car accidents. I assist injured persons with the entire process of filing a car accident injury claim. Your first priority should be to get well and to keep your doctor's appointments. Trust my team with the rest.
Whether you need assistance or representation or if you simply have questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at 312-500-4500. Feel free to reach out at any time of day or night. We always answer the phone. Please contact me if you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident in Champaign, IL.
