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 a Rockford, 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 312-50-4500 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 a Rockford, 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 Rockford, 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.

Is it Necessary to Contact a Rockford, 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 docusign. 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 Rockford, IL, I look forward to hearing from you.
