After an accident in Chicago, whether at the workplace or on the road, one of the questions people ask themselves is whether to hire a lawyer or not.
Worry not; today, we look at the top reasons you need to hire Chicago personal injury attorneys without hesitation.
You Need to Take LEGAL Action against the Perpetrator
The insurance companies use all tactics in the book to process claims – both illegal and unfair tactics. Don’t expect the insurance company to pity you and be on your side. The law in Chicago allows you to sue the insurance company for compensation for the damages.
Insurance companies are also required by law to compensate victims that can prove that personal injuries occurred due to the negligence of a third party.
Insurance Companies Can Act in ‘Bad Faith’ when Handling Your Claim
Chicago law requires that the insurance company MUST act in good faith when handling your claim. However, some companies go against this rule, and you, as a layman, might not notice.
Some of the instances when insurance companies have acted in bad faith include:
- The company can deny the claim without any clear reason or investigating the issue properly. Here, our lawyers request proper investigation or reasons why the claim has been denied.
- The company can decide to delay the payment for a very long time. We push the insurance company to implement the payout faster in such a case.
- Improper communication or omission of vital information regarding the claim. In this case, the lawyer calls for proper communication or points out the information left out.
- Paying less than what has been agreed upon. The lawyer’s task is to make sure the amount that has been agreed upon is paid in full.
We have handled such incidences before, and we can help you take legal action against the insurance company to compel them to do the right thing.
You don’t have the Skills and Time to Handle the Claim
Some people think that handling a personal injury claim is all about filing a petition to the insurer and then waiting for payout – wrong. You need to collect and preserve the evidence, then lodge a claim against the insurer, follow up on the claim, and, if possible, go to court.
The process is usually tiresome and takes a lot of your time. Some cases last for years before they get resolved.
We have seen many victims who have made mistakes that took their once-straightforward cases down the drain. When you work with us, we use the skills and experience we have gathered over the years to ensure you don’t make any mistakes.
