How Can a Cook County Personal Injury Attorney Help Accident Victims?

A personal injury lawyer can help you navigate the process of filing an insurance claim against the at-fault party in hopes of securing fair compensation for your injuries. In the event that the insurance company is unwilling to extend a fair settlement offer, a personal injury attorney will file a lawsuit to compel the insurance company to provide fair compensation.

What Is the Insurance Company's Role in the Personal Injury Process?

In most cases, the at-fault party has one or more insurance policies that may cover a victim's expenses. However, insurance companies are rarely willing to offer a fair settlement to an accident victim, and they will sometimes deny a victim's claim altogether. This is because the insurance company's only motive to settle a case is fear of taking the case to trial. Not only is a trial incredibly expensive for an insurance company, but it also raises the possibility of a jury returning an astronomical award of damages. Thus, rather than leave matters in the hands of the legal system, insurance companies will often try to settle cases.

Of course, even if insurance companies choose to settle a case, they will want to do so for as little money as possible. This is why it is a common practice for an insurance company to reach out to an accident victim shortly after the accident in hopes of catching them during a time of desperation.

By contacting a Cook County personal injury lawyer, accident victims can learn more about how the law applies in their case so they can make an informed decision on how to proceed.
