Injury Statistics for Lombard, 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 Lombard, 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 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.”
How Long Does a Lombard, 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 Lombard, 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.

Many people don't know but it car insurance companies control injury claims. The minute you are in a fender bender or a more serious crash with someone else, the car accident insurance company hires a lawyer to defeat your case. The insurance adjusters have written scripts for how to take recorded statements from people involved in a crash who might be injured. These scripts are designed to minimize the money that an injured person ultimately gets.

Usually, there are things that hurt my clients case or things which can out and out destroy their car accident injury case.
