Injury Stats for Buffalo Grove, IL
Neck and back injuries are the most common following a car accident. In most cases, rear-end collisions and side impacts are to blame. Moving violently backwards, forwards, or sideways will result in them. Over 35s or those with prior back or neck injuries are more likely to suffer new injuries in a Buffalo Grove, IL car accident.
The neck and back are often injured in the same way, whether through short-term muscle strains or more severe long-term conditions. A doctor should be consulted for any injury, regardless of how minor or severe it is.
The best doctor to choose after a car accident is one who has experience handling car accident injury claims. Therefore, your doctor will record all of the information in your medical record that your insurance company will need to process your claim. A doctor should be honest with you and communicate with you well. It is not fair for you to be treated by a doctor who doesn't spend time with you or explain your injuries or treatment plan. If you want your case to succeed, you need a doctor who communicates with you and your lawyer.
We can help you to know whether your doctor has a good reputation for knowing how to handle car crash cases and whether he is willing to cooperate with their injured patient. Give us a call at 312-500-4500 to talk about it for free.
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 Buffalo Grove, 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 Buffalo Grove, 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.

How Much is My Car Accident Worth in Buffalo Grove, IL?
Your car accident injury case value is directly affected by how serious your injuries are and how much medical attention you receive. Your case may be more valuable if your injuries are serious and permanent, and if you receive more medical care. The value of your case will likely be lower if you were injured for a short period of time and received little medical care.
You should not let that discourage you. The best thing you can do after a car accident is to seek medical treatment and legal representation. Because you can never predict how serious or how long your injuries will be at the start of a case. I have represented hundreds of clients who waited too long to talk to a lawyer and it ultimately hurt their case. They didn't think they were that hurt, or they thought their neck or back pain or their shoulder or knee pain would just go away on their own, so they didn't want to go to a doctor. They were wrong. Ignoring legal counsel is also a mistake.
Insurers who cover people who cause injuries in a car accident hire lawyers and claims adjusters to fool injured people into saying or doing things that damage their case. There are times when I run into a person who has signed away their rights without even knowing it. I am horrified.
In order for people to fully understand their rights and determine whether or not they have a strong case, I offer a free consultation.
Here is what I would tell you based on my over 20 years of experience helping victims of car accidents in Buffalo Grove, IL:
Even a very small case can settle for four or five figures. Most middle-of-the-road car accident cases settle for high five figures or lower six figures. In a serious car accident case, the settlement can reach the mid- to high six figures, or even seven or eight figures, depending on the amount of insurance and the severity of the injuries.
During the early stages of a case, you will not know how big the case will be. Doctors will take some time to determine the severity of your injuries, and whether you are likely to recover or suffer long-term consequences. You should however hire a lawyer right away so they can make sure your case is positioned for maximum value and maximum strength right from the start. When you're involved in a city state car accident, failing to consult with a lawyer is one of the worst things you can do.
Don't be fooled by tricks from insurance companies. Call 312-500-4500 right away for a free consultation.
