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.

Springfield, IL Car Accident Injuries
Neck and back injuries are the two most common injuries after a car crash. These are most common in front rear and side impact collisions. They occur when your body is moved violently backwards or forwards or side to side. If you are over the age of 35 or if you have a health history which includes a neck injury or back injury in your past, you are far more likely to suffer a new injury in your Springfield, IL car accident.
The problem with neck or back injuries is that they begin the same way, whether they are short-term muscle strains or longer-term and more serious injuries. That's why no matter what kind of injury you have, minor or major and permanent, it is key to go to the doctor right away.
When you decide which doctor to treat with after your car accident, it is very important to deal with a doctor who is familiar with how car accident injury claims work. This way, your doctor will record all of the pertinent information in your medical records which an insurance company will expect to see before they agree to pay any money. And, you want a 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. You want a doctor who communicates with you and your attorney so that the three of us can cooperate to make your case a success.
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.”
Can You Tell Me How Long it Takes to Resolve a Car Accident in Springfield, IL?
I almost always get asked this question by accident victims. The answer will vary depending on the circumstances. It may take years.
Until you see your doctor, we can begin to resolve your case. Until you heal as much as you can, this will need to be done. It should be painless after some time. As a result of permanent injuries, one can suffer both permanent disabilities and chronic pain.
In retrospect, it makes sense. If you've been injured in a car accident, we won't settle your case until we know exactly how it happened. We can take care of any surgery you need. Clients who require surgery should wait until they are fully recovered from the surgery. Some surgeries require other surgeries to be performed. A single operation is not always the solution for some problems. In spite of a successful surgery, permanent damage can still occur.
Injuries that are permanent are much more valuable than those that are temporary. Please seek appropriate medical care prior to settlement.
Therefore, it is impossible to predict when a case will settle. We have a completely trained staff who understand how important it is to get your money as soon as possible. We typically settle our cases within a year of the accident. That's on par with other accident lawyers. Clients get excellent service as soon as possible.

Is a Springfield, IL Car Accident Lawyer Necessary?
People do not realize that insurance companies control injury claims. Car accident insurance companies hire lawyers as soon as you are involved in a minor collision or in a serious crash with another vehicle. An insurance adjuster has recorded statements from people involved in a crash who might have been injured with the help of a script. A script such as this is designed to minimize how much money an injured person will receive. Those questions are tricky and are framed in a tricky way so they can extract answers from you that you might not fully understand or that you might not fully mean.
This has been my profession for quite some time, and I see it every day. In rare instances, I receive a recorded statement taken by my client before I represented him or her. There's typically a lot of bad stuff in that statement, so I am rarely surprised by it. Usually, there are things that hurt my clients case or things which can out and out destroy their car accident injury case.
Therefore, I advise people never to give a recorded statement until they are represented. Make sure you sign any papers carefully and be careful what you say to an insurance company.
A lawyer is assigned to every insurance company from day one. The wealthy can certainly afford to deal with such things, as they are rich. The majority of injured people do not have income coming in, and therefore cannot hire an attorney.
This is why personal injury lawyers provide free consultations. I offer a 100% free and obligation-free consultation either in person or over the phone, or even over Zoom if that is your preference. Thus, you will be able to determine what your rights are and identify any danger zones in your case. And, if you want me to handle your case, I will tell you whether it's a good case or not, and we can sign right over the Internet via an email or docusign. Or if you prefer, I can mail you the paperwork or you can come to my office to sign up. It would not be a problem if I drove to your house.
The entire focus of my practice is helping people who have been injured in motor vehicle accidents. Injured parties find my car accident injury claim process simple and stress free. It is important that you keep your doctor's appointments and focus on recovering from your injuries. I will take care of the rest.
