What does a Chicago personal injury lawyer do?

Personal injury lawyers handle a variety of case types, ranging from car accident injuries to medical device and defective product claims. A personal injury attorney will carry out a variety of vital tasks to help support your case, including:

  • Gathering evidence (medical documentation, witness testimony, re-creating the scene of the accident, etc.)
  • Building the most airtight strategy possible
  • Bringing experts onboard to testify
  • Negotiating with insurance companies
  • Handling the procedural aspects of filing a personal injury claim
  • Representing you at trial if negotiations are unsuccessful

Our personal injury attorneys in Chicago are prepared to work tirelessly on your behalf to help you achieve the best possible outcome.

How do you know if you need a personal injury lawyer?

If you have suffered an injury and you believe someone else was at fault (even partially), then you need to consult with a personal injury attorney. They will help you determine whether you have a case to pursue, and, from that point on, you will want to have legal counsel to represent you.

If you’re considering taking a settlement, you might be tempted to go through negotiations without a lawyer. However, this could turn out to be a major misstep, especially when powerful entities such as hospitals and corporations are involved. This is because they have extensive resources and world-class legal teams, so it’s easier for them to take advantage of an individual with little to no legal knowledge and cheat you out of the amount of compensation you actually deserve.

Don’t put yourself in this position – let us help you fight for what’s owed to you. Our attorneys can negotiate on your behalf, protect you from bad faith insurance practices and advocate for your best interests so that you don’t have to go up against the opposition alone.

How much does an injury attorney cost?

As with any other type of case, the cost of a personal injury attorney varies significantly on a per-case basis. This is because several unique factors can impact overall legal costs, such as:

  • The fee structure of your attorney
  • The length of time it takes to resolve your case
  • Where your legal team is located
  • Your personal injury lawyer’s level of experience

To get you started, Consumer Law Group offers free consultations so that you can get insight into your case without a big financial commitment. In addition to our free consultations, we strive to make legal counsel accessible to those who need it most with reasonable rates.

When should you hire a personal injury lawyer?

If you believe that you may have a personal injury case, it’s essential to contact a lawyer as soon as possible.

After an accident, you should make sure that you:

  • Make a note of any important information or details surrounding the incident
  • Take pictures of the scene, damage to property and your injuries
  • Exchange information with other parties involved
  • Speak with one of our personal injury lawyers (after you’ve received any necessary medical care, of course)
  • Make sure that everything is documented and that you hold onto this information if you see a doctor

When you’ve been involved in an incident of any kind that’s resulted in injury, one of the most important things to keep in mind is that you should never admit guilt (including making an apology to others involved). You should also wait for your lawyer’s counsel to provide a statement to the insurance company.

How long do personal injury cases typically last?

The length of time it takes to pursue a personal injury case can vary significantly depending on:

  • The circumstances of the case
  • Whether compensation is agreed upon through negotiation or you have to go to trial
  • Degree of cooperation from insurance companies
  • How long you wait to hire a personal injury attorney

Due to the nature of the cases, especially those involving severe injuries or death, they typically last at least several months or even years.

What damages can be awarded if your case is successful?

Damages include money awarded in a personal injury lawsuit that is meant to “compensate” a victim for their injuries and other losses related to their accident. There are several types of damages that may be awarded in a personal injury case, including compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Property damage

The amount of damages a personal injury victim is awarded typically depends on the severity of the injury, the extent of liability of the other party and the nature of the incident. That said, you can rest assured that we will pursue maximum compensation on your behalf to help you establish medical and financial security following your accident.
