Injury Statistics for Northbrook, IL Car Accidents
After a car accident, neck and back injuries are the most common. Rear-end and side impact collisions are most likely to cause these injuries. If you move violently backwards or forwards or side to side, you will experience them. You are far more likely to suffer a new injury in a Northbrook, IL car accident if you are over the age of 35 or if you have a health history that includes back injuries or neck injuries.
Neck or back injuries are similar in that they begin the same way, whether they are short-term muscle strains or longer-term and more severe injuries. It is crucial to see a doctor as soon as possible no matter what kind of injury you have, whether minor or serious.
You should choose a doctor who understands car accident injury claims when choosing a doctor after a car accident. As a result, your doctor will record all of the relevant information in your medical records that an insurance company will require to proceed with a claim. 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.

How Long Does it Take for a Northbrook, 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 Northbrook, 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.

Is it Necessary to Contact a Northbrook, IL Car Accident Lawyer?
Many people are unaware that car insurance companies control injury claims. After a fender bender or a more serious accident, the insurance company hires a lawyer to defeat your claim. Insurers have written scripts for how to take recorded statements from people involved in crashes who might be injured. They are designed to minimize the amount of compensation an injured person receives. The questions are tricky. They ask them in a tricky way to try to get you to say things you may not fully understand or mean.
I've been doing this for a long time, and I see it every day. Rarely do I receive a recorded statement from a client before I represent them. There is usually a lot of bad stuff in that statement, and I am rarely disappointed. My clients' car accident injury cases are often hurt by it.
This is why you should never give a recorded statement before you are represented. Be careful when signing any papers, and be careful what you say to the insurance company.
From the very beginning, insurance companies are represented by a lawyer. Since they're rich, they can afford to deal with that sort of thing. Most injured people do not have money coming in and cannot afford to hire a lawyer.
Personal injury lawyers offer free consultations because of this. Whenever possible, I offer free, no-obligation consultations in person, over the phone, or even via Zoom if that is what you prefer. In this way, you will know what your rights are, as well as what the danger zones in your case might be and how to avoid them. If you want me to take your case, I will tell you whether it's a good case or not. We can sign you up over the Internet via email or a doc you sign. Alternatively, I can mail you sign up paperwork or you can come into my office to sign up. I can even drive near you to sign up.
I devote my entire law practice to helping car accident victims and people who have been injured in auto accidents. My goal is to make the whole process of filing a car accident injury claim as simple and stress-free as possible for victims. Keep your doctor appointments and focus on getting better. I'll handle the rest.
You can reach me at 312-500-4500 if you need help, want representation, or even if you just have questions. You can reach me night or day, any day of the year. That number is always answered. If you have been involved in a car accident in Northbrook, IL, I look forward to hearing from you.
