Chicago Legal Group's insight:
Were you involved in a personal injury accident? If so, your first question may be — how long does a personal injury claim take to settle? 
To discuss this and/or any other issues regarding your accident, contact our office for a free consultation at 847–305–4105. How long does a personal injury claim take to settle?

 If you’ve dealt with personal injury attorneys before, you’ll understand that it’s hard to get a definite answer out of them. That’s because there are many factors that go into a personal injury case. Anyone of them could delay your case. For that reason, the only honest answer to the question of how long does a personal injury claim take to settle is — “It Depends”. 

 Factors that affect how long it takes to settle your case There are many factors that affect this answer. The most important being the severity of your injury. Instead of starting there, however, we will address this question by looking at the normal pattern a personal injury case takes. 

 Finding the defendant/insurance Many times our clients were taken from the scene of an accident in an ambulance. If that’s the case, chances are you didn’t have a chance to get the defendant’s contact information let alone his/her auto insurance information. As such, you may have to wait until the police report is ready to identify the defendant or his insurance. 

That can take weeks in big cities like Chicago. The easiest way in Chicago to obtain a police report is on the CPD website. You can also obtain reports from the Illinois State Police, your local Sheriff’s department and/or your local city.

SHOULD YOU REPRESENT YOURSELF IN COURT? - Chicago Auto Accident Lawyer - Quora

Chicago Legal Group's insight:
If you are searching for an injury attorney in Niles, call our office at 847-305-4105. We are a local Northbrook based personal injury law firm. We offer free consultations and can even come to your home to meet with you. Thinking about representing yourself? There has been a significant rise in the number of “pro-se” plaintiffs – people who represent themselves in court or against insurance companies. So much so that the Illinois State Bar Association just released an article about it in the October 2017, edition of the Illinois Bar Journal. Check the video here And on the Illinois Courts website, there is a section called “Access to Justice” dedicated to the pro-se plaintiff. On it you can find access to standardized forms for use in court and many of the forms are translated into Spanish, Polish, Arabic, Chinese, Russian and Korean. That does not mean the courts view pro se claimants favorably. Judge Richard Posner recently retired from the bench. One of his reasons for retiring was that his efforts to help pro-se plaintiffs put him at odds with his colleagues. Posner was quoted as saying “The basic thing is that most judges regard these people as kind of trash not worth the time of a federal judge.” That’s a very odd comment and hopefully not an accurate portrayal of federal judges’ opinions of people who represent themselves. Why is it happening? What has fueled the rise of people representing themselves in legal matters? According to the Bar, it is primarily financially-related. People cannot afford to hire an attorney to represent them. I agree that this is one factor. Our office has received countless calls from people who are defendants in actions and cannot afford to spend the $300 or more per hour to hire an attorney to defend themselves. The other side of the financial coin however, is that lawyers are turning away cases more now than before. We receive calls from all over the place from people who were injured. Many of the calls are medical malpractice cases from Wisconsin. Wisconsin has caps on how much an injured person can recover. As such, most lawyers we deal with won’t even talk to a Wisconsin medical malpractice victim unless the malpractice resulted in a catastrophic injury or death. .

Chicago Legal Group's insight:
My clients who were injured in an automobile or other motor vehicle accident often ask: how much is a reasonable personal injury settlement amount? That is a very difficult question to answer and in typical attorney form, I can only answer “it depends.” For a broader discussion of the value of a case, see my recent blog article entitled “How Much is my Case Worth?”. In short, it depends on several factors such as the severity of your injury, the amount of insurance there is, and what insurance company you are dealing with, among other factors. Included in many personal injury settlement amounts are compensation for: Property damage — your vehicle but also your damaged cell phone, clothing etc. Pain and suffering — but how do you measure your pain and suffering? Lost wages — we will contact your employer to verify the amount of money you lost Mileage and other expenses — keep a mileage log for example Medical bills — In Illinois, you can recover for the total cost of your medical bills Loss of enjoyment — you lost time playing catch with your son or daughter due to your injury

Niles Personal Injury Attorney - Why chiropractors are important to personal injury cases

Niles Personal Injury Attorney - Why chiropractors are important to personal injury cases | Accident and Personal Injury Lawyers | Scoop.it
The Niles Personal Injury Attorney at the Chicago Legal Group (847-305-4105) represents victims of auto accidents and personal injury cases.
Chicago Legal Group's insight:
Why Chiropractors Are Important To Personal Injury Cases:
I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you why chiropractors are important to personal injury cases. A lot of lawyers might disagree with me. Some orthopedists might as well. However, in my experience as a Niles personal injury attorney, chiropractors have played an important role in the recovery of many of my clients. By far the majority of auto accident victims suffer “soft tissue” injuries such as back or neck sprains or strains. In fact, the ratio is probably 20 to 1 of calls I receive from people who suffered sprains/strains in an accident compared to those who suffered a fracture or other injury. From a Niles personal injury attorney perspective, one of the main advantages of using a chiropractor is the many ways you can pay for chiropractic treatment.

Chicago Legal Group's insight:
This weekend is Memorial Day and I’ve been so actively involved in several military personal injury claims in the past eighteen months, I wanted to say as a Wheeling military personal injury lawyer, I am grateful for the service of our women and men in uniform. I’ve also reflected recently on the many veterans’ personal injury cases I’ve worked on in the past few years. Just this week I met with a vet who clearly suffered from PTSD and other severe physical ailments suffered while serving. He was just injured in an auto accident when he got rear-ended through no fault of his own. Veterans with pre-existing conditions make complicated cases. Another challenge facing these folks after an auto accident is obtaining medical treatment. As a Wheeling military personal injury lawyer, I’ve had to deal with Tricare Insurance and the Veteran’s Administration countless times.

Check out this blog article on what to do if you cause an auto accident. And call for a free consultation if you have any questions at 847-305-4105. 

There have been a couple really bad Glenview auto accident cases in the past 60 days. In one accident, a Glenview teenager named Jun Yang was involved in a solo vehicle accident. He had a passenger in the car who was also injured. Yang was 16 years old. I am the father of three teenage daughters, one of whom drives and a second who is about to start driver’s ed. So, this story really impacted me. Then at the end of June 2018, a construction worker was hit by a truck that was backing up near Crestwood and Carousel drives in Glenview. 

According to the Chicago Tribune, the worker suffered serious injuries and was taken to the emergency room at Lutheran General Hospital. If you are injured in a Glenview auto accident through no fault of your own, there are numerous resources on this website where you can find information on how to proceed. I will shamelessly suggest you should talk to a Glenview lawyer about your case. But what do you do if you caused the auto accident? 

In that case, you are the “defendant.” This is the situation we all dread because if you did, in fact, cause the accident: Your car was likely also damaged You have to pay your deductible to get your car fixed You will have to spend a lot of time dealing with the aftermath of the accident, and of course You cannot recover for your “pain and suffering” Your auto insurance rates will likely go up

Chicago Legal Group's insight:
A recent case handled by our office addressed the issue of can more than one person be held liable for an auto accident. If you were involved in an accident where multiple parties were involved, feel free to contact Glenview lawyer Barry Zlotowicz at 312–848–9783 for a free consultation. Can more than one person be held liable for an auto accident? The answer seems obvious, doesn’t it? If two parties (defendants) were negligent and caused your injury, they should be held responsible or “liable” for your damages. This is called “Joint and Several Liability.” If the defendants are “jointly liable”, then each defendant could be liable to pay up to and including, ALL OF YOUR DAMAGES. This might be necessary if for example, the other defendant was uninsured or otherwise unable to pay If the parties are “severally liable”, that means that they are only responsible for their fair share of the damages

Chicago Legal Group's insight:
If you were injured in the village of Mount Prospect or anywhere in the state of Illinois, you may wonder whether you can recover for your co-pays after an auto accident. You can. But not how you might think. Co-pays after an auto accident, if you were injured in an auto accident or any other type of personal injury accident, you probably sought medical care shortly thereafter. Perhaps you went to the emergency room or a local urgent care. After your medical care is completed, you will begin to receive medical bills for the treatment. The auto insurance company for the driver who hit you will NOT pay your medical bills until your case is resolved. However, your health insurance may pay for the bills. You may have to pay your health insurance back out of the proceeds of your settlement.

They often answer the same thing – “I have full coverage.” It’s unclear what exactly people are referring to when they say this. The meaning varies depending on the situation. But universally, people do not know how much insurance and what type of insurance they have. And they definitely don’t know how much insurance they need.

Who pays the medical bills after an auto accident in IL

Who pays the medical bills after an auto accident in IL | Accident and Personal Injury Lawyers | Scoop.it
The auto insurance for the driver of the vehicle that hit you will not pay your medical bills until your case settles. If you were injured in an auto accident in Illinois, you may wonder who pays the medical bills after an auto accident? Continue reading to find out who will pay your medical bills or contact us.
Chicago Legal Group's insight:
If you were injured in an auto accident in Illinois, the question arises who will pay the medical bills. The auto insurance for the driver of the vehicle that hit you will not pay your medical bills until your case settles and no need to tell your medical providers to bill that driver's auto insurance. But still one is responsible to confirm who pays his medical bills after an auto accident. If you are hit by an uninsured driver, you will file a claim against your own auto insurance policy. The same analysis will then apply. If you recover $10,000 from your insurance company, you will have to pay back the $3,000 in medical bills from your recovery.
