Do I Need An Attorney To Settle My Illinois Motorcycle Accident Case Or Should I Try To Do It Myself?

Most Illinois motorcycle accidents that involve only minor damage to either the property or persons involved generally can be handled on your own and resolved directly with the insurance companies involved.

However, if you feel that your claim is being handled in a fair and expedient manner, then there may not be a need for an attorney. However, for serious injuries that may lead to ongoing medical issues or large medical bills, it may be best to discuss the case with an attorney.

From the perspective of a person injured in a motorcycle crash, you need to acknowledge the inherent conflict between yourself and the insurance company for the driver who caused the crash. The insurance company’s goal is to settle your case as quickly as possible for as little money as possible. If you rely exclusively on the insurance company to value your case, you will likely be sorely disappointed.

As attorneys who handle motorcycle accidents across Illinois, Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers is well versed on the valuation of motorcycle accidents involving all types of injuries and in differing jurisdictions in the state. We know when an insurance company is ‘fairly’ valuing a case and we know when they are low-balling you. When you retain our office you will get a level of expertise that you deserve when it comes to trial attorneys who know the in’s and out’s of the legal system, but you will also get a team of trusted advisors who are looking out of your best interests—we will tell you, candidly, if we believe that your case is being fairly valued.

In addition to our experience with the valuation of Illinois motorcycle injuries, we also take care of post-settlement issues—primarily medical liens that are generally part of every case. We handle medical liens attaching to your case from physicians, hospitals, physical therapists and insurance companies. Therefore, when your case is resolved you can be assured that these interests were satisfied in their entirety.

Client Reviews
Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case. In addition, Jonathan was understanding and patient pertaining to any of my questions or concerns. I was very happy with the end result and I highly recommend Jonathan Rosenfeld.
★★★★★
Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong, Google User
★★★★★
This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you. Daniel Kaim, Avvo User

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa, Avvo User
