Chicago, 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 Chicago, 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.”
How Long Does it Take for a Chicago, IL Car Accident to be Settled?
Almost everyone involved in a motor vehicle accident asks me this question. Some cases can be resolved quickly. Others can take years.
People don't realize that we cannot begin to solve or settle your case until after you've seen your doctor. You'll have to do this until you have healed as much as you can. Ideally, this means you will no longer be in pain. As a result of a permanent injury, you may have a permanent disability as well as permanent pain in your body.
It makes sense if you think about it. In Chicago, IL, we would not settle a car accident injury case until we know the full extent of your injuries. You should also tell us if you need surgery, for instance. My advice to a client who needs surgery is to wait until after the surgery and after they are fully recovered. Sometimes one surgery requires another. One surgery may not fix the problem. Even if all goes well during surgery, you may still suffer permanent damage.
A permanent serious injury is worth much more than a temporary minor injury. Before settling this case, we must thoroughly investigate this and make sure you receive all necessary medical care.
Because of this, there is no easy way to predict how long a case will take to settle. My office, however, is very aggressive, and I have a fully trained staff who understand that getting you your money as soon as possible is a very high priority. Most of our cases are settled within a year of the crash or shortly thereafter. I'll match those numbers with any other car accident attorney. We deliver a great service quickly and maximize value for our clients.

What Should I Do if I Am Involved in a Car Accident in Chicago, IL?
It's a little-known fact that car insurance companies control injury claims. As soon as you have a fender bender or a more serious accident with someone else, the insurer hires a lawyer to defeat your claim. There are scripts that insurance adjusters use when asking people involved in a crash who may have been injured to give a recorded statement. An injured person's compensation is minimized by these scripts. They asked tricky questions and asked them in a tricky manner to trick you into saying things you might not fully understand or mean.
It's something I see all the time since I've been doing it for a long time. It is extremely rare for me to receive a recorded statement from my client before I represent them. There's usually a lot of bad stuff in that statement, and I'm seldom disappointed. My clients' car accident injury cases are almost always hurt by things in that statement.
Therefore, never give a recorded statement before being represented. Also, be cautious when signing any papers and when speaking with the insurance company over the phone.
A lawyer represents insurance companies from day one. Of course, they are rich and can afford to deal with such things. Injury victims often do not have money coming in and cannot afford a lawyer.
A free consultation is offered by personal injury lawyers because of this. If you prefer, I also offer free and no-obligation consultations over the phone or over the Internet. You can discover your rights and the danger zones in your case so you can avoid them. I can sign you up over the Internet via email or a doc you sign if you want me to accept your case. Alternatively, I can mail you the forms or meet with you in my office if you prefer. If you prefer, I can even drive to you.
I have dedicated my entire legal practice to helping people who have been injured in car accidents. I will make the entire process of filing a personal injury claim simple and stress-free for injured persons. Make sure that you keep your doctor's appointments and get well. I will handle everything else.
You can contact me at 312-500-4500 if you need assistance, if you would like representation, or even just if you have questions. You can reach me 24/7. I always answer the phone. Should you have been involved in a car accident in Chicago, IL, I look forward to hearing from you.
