Westchester Personal Injury Attorneys

Westchester-Accident-LawyersAs a western suburb of Chicago, the village of Westchester is located in Cook County. With a landmass of just over three square miles, the heavily populated area has more than 17,000 residents. In addition, the community has a public primary, intermediate and middle school. High school students attend the Proviso West high school located in Hillside. In addition, the community’s Wolf Road Prairie is the largest US black soil Prairie East of the famous Mississippi River.

The community is served by two distinct freeways (I-290 & I-294) along with the Chicago Rapid Transit Line for easy commute into the downtown metropolitan area. However, its close proximity to the city of Chicago and the Metropolitan area has made the community increasingly susceptible to a high number of vehicle accidents. As a result, many residents have hired a Westchester personal injury lawyer to handle their case to receive financial compensation when the accident was not their fault.

Hiring a Westchester Personal Injury Attorney

Whenever a victim is seriously injured in a vehicle accident that was not their fault, it is essential to hire a reputable Westchester personal injury lawyer. This is important because the injury suffered often brings with it extensive lost wages and medical bills that require compensation through the insurance company of the responsible party. A skilled personal injury attorney that specializes in vehicle accidents can prove the carelessness or negligent action of the responsible party so the victim can receive adequate financial compensation.

Fighting the Insurance Company

Many insurance companies hire teams of skilled legal professionals that work to minimize the amount paid out through settlement claims through insurance policies. Unfortunately, a victim of a serious vehicle accident suffering major injuries is often at a substantial disadvantage when dealing directly with the professional claims adjuster. Fortunately, the injured individual can hire the skills of a Westchester personal injury attorney to fight back against the insurance company and receive adequate compensation.

The Benefits of Retaining An Attorney To Represent You

In nearly every incident, it is essential to hire an experienced Westchester personal injury lawyer to handle a claim or lawsuit involving the accident. This is because the attorney can provide specific legal services to the client. It is highly recommended to use the skills of an attorney under various conditions that include:

  • Serious Injury Involved – Any victim sustaining a serious injury caused by the negligent actions of another could have long-lasting medical and financial repercussions, requiring financial recompense through the insurance carrier of the responsible individual.
  • An Uninsured or Underinsured Driver – If the driver responsible for the accident was either uninsured or underinsured, it is crucial that the victim suffering injuries hire a competent vehicle accident attorney.
  • Settling a Legal Dispute – Many times the investigating officer and both parties will dispute over who is at fault or responsible for causing the accident. A reputable attorney skilled in vehicle accidents can sort the dispute out, to determine which driver is at fault.
  • Pressure from the Insurance Company – If the claims adjuster handling the case is agreeing to offer a quick settlement, it is usually a red flag that the offered amount will not sufficiently cover the medical expenses, injuries, damages, suffering and pain of the victim.
  • An Improper Amount of Compensation – Many times the victim believes they did not receive full compensation for all the sustained injuries caused by another. Hiring the skills of an attorney can assure the victim that the responsible party pays all financial and medical bills (past, current and future).

Anytime an experienced Westchester personal injury attorney accepts a case, it is usually a good indicator that the claim is strong. Using their skills, Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers can likely assist the client in their efforts to receive proper compensation.

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.
