If you’ve been injured or lost a loved one in an accident you have legal options. Keating Law Offices is here to help. Under Illinois law you may be entitled to financial compensation. The process for recovering compensation should be simple. The negligent party admits fault for causing the accident that left you hurt. The insurance company determines the total damages you have suffered and covers the costs.
Our attorneys know how to fight back against the insurance companies
Recovering financial compensation is much more complicated than a simple computation. Negligent drivers and their companies typically do not admit fault. They deny doing anything wrong and won’t accept responsibility for causing the crash that left you hurt. This puts you in the position of having to prove it was their negligence that led to your injuries.
Insurance companies aren’t much help, either. They do not have your best interests in mind after you’ve been hurt in an accident. Insurance companies are out to make money. They would like to keep their profits as high as possible. To accomplish that, they try to keep their payouts as small as possible.
There are different ways they try to minimize your compensation. They may dispute the extent of your injuries and argue that they’re not that serious. They may claim that you had your injuries even before the accident. They may even try to blame you for causing the crash, because it’s a way of paying you less.
Another favorite tactic they use is the lowball settlement offer. An adjuster will contact you soon after the accident with a settlement offer. It’s the best they can do, you’ll be told. They’ll promise you a quick payment. As your medical expenses add up, it can be attempting to accept. Their offer will fall far short of covering the total damages you have suffered, however.
