Statistics show every year that more car accidents occur during the summertime. When you head out on the roads, you have a higher chance of being in a wreck than at any other time during the year. If you are in an accident, you can hire one of the experienced Chicago Illinois car accident lawyers from Trapp & Geller to find out what caused it and hold the responsible party accountable.
Discovering the Cause of the Accident
Before your attorney can hold anyone accountable for your accident, he or she must first find out why the accident occurred in the first place. During your initial meeting with the lawyer, you can provide information about the incident. This disclosure can involve telling your attorney what happened and possibly even submitting proof like the police report or your medical documents to your legal team.
Your attorney can then take over the investigation to find out why the accident took place and how severely you were injured. This information is critical to learning whom to hold responsible and how much compensation that you are entitled to under your state’s personal injury laws.
Holding the Party Responsible
After your attorney knows whom to hold accountable, he or she can file a claim against the party’s insurer or file a lawsuit with the court. Your legal team can pursue the insurer until the claim is paid out in full. Your lawyer will ensure that you receive what you are legally entitled to by state law.
If the insurer refuses to pay, your lawyer can file a lawsuit against it. The lawsuit can pursue a judgment or out-of-court settlement for compensation for your accident-related injuries and costs.
