When you are involved in an accident, whether it is a car accident or another type, you may have a lot of questions. The questions will be different based on the victim.
What is your recommendation for a doctor? Are there any costs associated with visiting a doctor? And what do I do if I'm injured? Can my injuries be healed? What will it take for me to return to work? This should be discussed with a lawyer. Who should I talk with?
Such questions are not unusual. Several accident victims have sought assistance from me in the past. Those victims got complete medical treatment after they were injured. In addition to paying their medical bills, we ensure that they receive payment for their lost wages. Usually, the case is handled quickly and without much hassle.

State-By-State Injury Statistics
Injuries to the neck and back are the most common after a car accident. Many accidents are caused by rear-end collisions or side impacts. When you undergo violent backwards, forwards, or sideways movements, they will appear. Those over 35 or with prior neck or back injuries are more likely to sustain new injuries in an Orland Park, IL car accident.
The neck and back are frequently injured in the same way, whether it's through short-term muscle strains or long-term conditions. Any injury should be evaluated by a doctor, regardless of how minor or severe it is.
It is best to choose a doctor who has experience handling car accident injury claims after a car accident. Thus, your doctor will record all of the information that your insurance company needs to process your claim in your medical record. An honest doctor should communicate effectively with you. You shouldn't be treated by a physician who doesn't take the time to explain your injuries or treatment plan to you. A doctor who communicates with you and your lawyer is necessary if you want the maximum compensation for your case.
You can use our resources to find out if a doctor has a good reputation for handling car crash cases. Knowing whether he is willing to cooperate with their injured patient will be helpful to you. Give us a call at 312-500-4500 to discuss 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.”
How Long Does an Orland Park, IL Car Accident Take to Settle?
This is a very common question the people involved in a motor vehicle crash have for me. The truth is that some cases can be resolved very quickly. Some cases take years.
Many people don't know that we cannot begin to solve or settle your case until after you are done going to the doctor or you reach a point where you have healed as much as you're going to. Ideally, this means you go back to normal in your pain free. But sometimes a permanent injury means that you are left with a permanent disability and permanent pain in your body as a result of the car accident.
If you think about it, it makes sense. We would not want to settle a car accident injury case in Orland Park, IL until we know the full extent of your injuries and we know whether, for example, you need to have surgery or not. Any of my clients who might need a surgery are told by me that they should wait until after the surgery and after a full recovery from their surgery. That's because sometimes one surgery requires another surgery. Sometimes one surgery fails to fix the problem. And, sometimes even when everything goes right in a surgery, you are still left with permanent pain and injuries.
Obviously, permanent serious injuries are worth far more than temporary minor injuries. We have to explore this fully and make sure you get all necessary medical care before settling a case.
That's why there is no one simple answer to tell you how long it will take to settle a case. However, my office is extremely aggressive and I have a fully trained staff who understands that getting you your money as quickly as possible is a very high priority. We settle most of our cases within one year of the date of the crash or shortly thereafter. I will put those numbers up against any other car accident attorney. We truly do a great job quickly and get maximum value for our clients.

I Had a Car Accident in Orland Park, IL. How Much is it Worth?
How serious and permanent your injuries are, as well as how much medical care you get, directly contribute to your case's value. In general, the more serious and permanent your injuries and the more medical attention you receive, the more valuable your case will be. In the case of injuries that lasted a short period and little medical care, your case will probably have a lower value.
Despite that, you shouldn't be discouraged. Getting medical treatment and legal representation immediately after an accident is wise. At the beginning of your case, you don't know how serious your injuries are going to be or how long they might last. In my career as a lawyer, I have handled hundreds of cases where people waited too long to seek legal advice. Some people weren't concerned that they were hurt that badly or that their neck pain, back pain, shoulder pain, or knee pain would go away on their own, so they didn't want to go to the trouble of seeing a doctor. There's no way you can do that. Do not avoid talking to a lawyer either.
It is not unusual for insurance companies which represent people in car accidents to hire lawyers and claim adjusters to convince injured people to say or do things that hurt the value of their case. There are a few times when I have seen someone sign away their rights without knowing it. That is horrible.
During my free consultations with people, I inform them of their rights and help them decide whether they have a strong case or one that may face challenges.
Following is what I can tell you from my experience helping people in car accidents in Orland Park, IL:
Small cases are also often settled for four- and five-figure sums. An average car accident case might settle for low six figures or high five figures. Depending on the severity of the injuries and the extent of the insurance coverage for the accident, a very serious accident can settle for between six and eight figures.
You won't know the size of a case until later in the case. Doctors will need some time to tell us how serious your injuries are and whether you will be able to recover permanently. Nevertheless, you should consult a lawyer right away in order to ensure that your case will be positioned for maximum value and maximum strength. If you have been involved in a car accident in Orland Park, IL, you should always contact or hire a lawyer.
Insurance companies have tricks that you should not fall for. Call us right away at 312-500-4500 to schedule a free consultation.
