A Lawyer for Accidents in Mundelein, IL
In the wake of a car accident or any type of accident, you may have a lot of questions. Those questions will vary depending on the victim.

Injury Stats for Mundelein, 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 Mundelein, 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 312-50-4500 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.”
How Long Does a Mundelein, 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 Mundelein, 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.

What is the Value of My Mundelein, IL Car Accident?
A lot depends on the severity and permanence of your injuries as well as the amount of medical treatment you get after a car accident. The more serious and permanent your injuries are, as well as the more medical attention you receive, the more valuable the case is. If your injuries did not last long and you received little medical care, your case likely has a lower value.
There is no reason to be discouraged by that. In the case of a car accident, it is advisable to seek medical treatment and legal representation as soon as possible. At the beginning of a case, it is impossible to know how serious or how long your injuries will be. People I've represented have waited to see a doctor or lawyer and it ultimately led to their cases being lost. The patients did not think they were actually injured that badly or they believed that the pain in their neck or back or their shoulder or knee would just go away with time so they did not want to bother with going to the doctor. This was a really big mistake. It was also a mistake to avoid consulting an attorney.
Lawyers and claim adjusters often work on behalf of insurance companies representing people who have been injured in a car accident in order to trick them into saying or doing things that reduce the value of their case. Rarely do I come across someone who has signed away all of their rights without knowing it. I think this is terrible.
People can consult me for free so that they can gain an understanding of their rights and know whether their case is strong or whether it faces some challenges.
Here are some things I can tell you about Mundelein, IL car accidents based on my over 20 years of legal experience:
Small cases will often settle for four or five figures as well. Usually, mid-range car accident cases settle for five figures or less. If there is enough insurance and serious injuries are involved, very serious car accident cases may settle for six- to eight-figure settlements.
As you can see, you have no idea how large a case will be early on in the case. The doctors will be able to tell after some time how severe your injuries are and whether you are recovering or if you will have long-term problems. In any case, getting a lawyer right away is a good idea so that the lawyer can position your case for maximum strength and maximum value. Hiring a lawyer, or at least consulting with a lawyer, is one of the worst decisions you can make when you have been in a car accident.
Insurance companies will try to trick you so please do not fall for their tricks. Call us today at 312-500-4500 for a free consultation.
