Have you suffered a severe injury or has a loved one been killed in an auto accident, a surgical procedure, slip and fall incident and nursing home abuse? You urgently need to hire the legal skills of a personal injury attorney. The University Village attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC have decades of combined experienced in assisting our clients in obtaining the financial compensation they are entitled to receive. Our law firm has recovered millions for deserving victims and is recognized as Chicagoland’s leading litigators.
Some of our clients have hired our services after they attempted to negotiate directly with the insurance carrier and were offered less than the total cost of their medical expenses, lost wages, pain-and-suffering. Studies of shown the victims with an attorney receive three times more financial recompense than those without legal representation.
The Insurer Says I am at Fault
Many of our clients who attempted to go it alone were shocked when the insurance company attempted to place blame on them for the accident and offered only a partial settlement or refused to offer a settlement at all. At first blush, the amount they offered to settle the claim might appear to be sufficient to cover all expenses as a lump-sum. However, the victim’s loss of income caused by their inability to return to work until fully healed and future/ongoing medical bills might be greater than the amount of money being offered by the claims adjuster.
We recommend that our potential clients never accept the settlement offer by the insurance company. Your decision is important because once you agree to a settlement, sign the paperwork and accept the check you forfeit your rights to seek additional initial compensation forever if you find that the amount you received was far too low to cover your losses.
How Much Will it Cost?
We make paying for legal representation simple. Our Little Italy neighborhood law firm accepts all personal injury and wrongful death cases through contingency fee arrangements. This agreement means that we will not charge our clients any upfront fees or retainers and are only paid after winning the case at trial or successfully negotiating an acceptable out of court settlement. If our attorneys do not win the case, our law firm does not charge the client any fees.
This arrangement makes it possible for the victim to focus their attention recovering from their injuries by avoiding the need to worry about paying attorney fees through the legal process. Also, our efforts ensure that all the necessary paperwork is filed before the Illinois statute of limitations expires.
How Long Until the Case is Resolved?
Many of our clients are annoyed at how long the case will take until it is resolved and they can pick up their compensation check. The length of time it takes to resolve your case will depend on numerous variables including the extent of your injuries, determining who is at fault, calculating the value of the case and negotiating with the insurance carrier and their attorneys. We minimize our overall workload by limiting the cases we represent to ensure that we can focus as much-needed attention on your case as necessary to ensure we resolve your cases quickly as possible. Resolution can involve:
- Determining Fault – Not every case is clear-cut where determining who is truly at fault for the accident or incident when it is not so obvious. In these cases, we use our in-house investigators to conduct a thorough investigation to help determine liability and assign blame. Our investigation might involve reconstructing the accident scene to find additional forensic evidence. Once we know who is at fault, our attorneys know how to build your case.
- Building the Case – After you to retain our legal services, our attorneys, legal assistants, and paralegals will begin the process of building your case. This effort requires gathering evidence, speaking to eyewitnesses, obtaining medical records, reviewing police reports, and researching civil tort law and how it pertains to your type of injuries.
- The Extent of Your Medical Treatments – Before we demand that the defendant and their insurance company pays for all your expenses, we must first determine the extent of your medical treatments and the need for care in the future. Our medical team of experts can provide valuable insight on the extent of your temporary or permanent accident-related disability and the cost of medical care in the years ahead.
- Your Inability to Work – Likely, you are unable to return to work after the accident due to your injuries. Our medical team will determine the extent of your damages and calculate the amount of time in the years ahead when you will not be able to earn a living. This calculation is important when demanding monetary compensation to ensure you have adequate funds in the future to pay for medical care and household bills and finances.
