When To Get A Lawyer For An Automobile Accident
It’s best to consult with a lawyer as soon as possible after a car accident. In Illinois, you only have two years from the date an injury occurred to file a claim. This two-year time period does have exceptions that can both lengthen and shorten your filing window depending on the specifics of your case. If your accident happened in another state, the statute of limitations may be different.
While two years may seem like a lot of time, it is vital to get started on your case right away. One main reason is that evidence degrades over time and can be more difficult to obtain. At Ori Law Group, we will help you gather important evidence such as finding witnesses or obtaining security camera footage.
Soon after your accident, you will start receiving calls and communications from insurance companies trying to quickly and cheaply settle your case. When you are recovering physically and emotionally from your accident, the last thing on your mind should be negotiating with insurers. Our attorneys will take over communications and negotiations so that you can focus on healing.
About Automobile Accidents In Chicago
Car accidents can cause a range of injuries, from broken bones to catastrophic injuries that can take years to recover from. Some injuries can leave lasting impacts, causing permanent disability or life-long symptoms. Due to the physical impacts of a catastrophic injury, you may need expensive medical care, personal assistance and other accommodations for the rest of your life. Even a noncatastrophic injury can result in staggering medical expenses, lost income, emotional trauma and financial hardship for you and your family.
Serious injuries resulting from automobile accidents include:
- Whiplash and torn ligaments
- Fractured and broken bones
- Internal injuries/organ damage
- Lost limbs
- Lost eyesight or hearing
- Traumatic brain injury (also referred to as a head injury)
- Paralysis caused by damage to the spinal cord
- Neck, back, hip, and knee injury
- Scarring and disfigurement
When you are facing the impact of a serious injury, the last thing you will want to take on is dealing with all the legal details in filing a claim against the other party and their insurer. Such cases involve intensive, confusing paperwork and require investigation, case preparation and tenacious negotiation or litigation.
