Car Accidents and Insurance
In order for you to win a full and fair settlement for your needs, it is important that you avoid making any statements or signing anything with the insurance company. Call a St. Louis car accident lawyer first. These companies often use what seem like casual conversations to gain important details about what happened in your case. They will use these details to avoid paying you a fair settlement, so make sure you let a lawyer deal with these companies.
Why you should you contact an attorney after a car accident?
A successful lawsuit could help you win compensation for medical care costs, lost wages, loss of future earning potential, property damages, and pain and suffering. You will need to prove that the other driver’s negligence was directly responsible for your severe injuries. This means collecting police reports, witness statements, and photographic evidence that corroborate your side of the story. The State of Illinois has set a statute of limitations for personal injury cases of two years, meaning a person has two years from the date of their accident in which the injury occurred to file a personal injury claim. It's important to contact an attorney sooner rather than later since important evidence and supporting documentation may get lost the longer you wait to file. Our attorneys can talk you through the important elements of your case and can help you from the first call to the last.
