Do I have a car crash claim?
If you have significant damages after a motor vehicle accident, then you will probably need to file a claim. If a driver or another party such as an auto manufacturer contributed to your accident, then you may wish to file a claim.
How long do I have to file my claim?
Illinois has a two-year statute of limitations to file an injury claim. If you do not file your claim within two years of the date of your crash, then you may lose the right to recover compensation for your damages.
How much is my claim worth?
The value of your claim depends on a variety of factors. These include:
- The cost of your medical treatment
- The value of your vehicle
- The amount of fault of the other party
- The presence of evidence
- The other driver’s insurance coverage
Every car accident is unique. There is no way to estimate the value of your claim unless you speak to a personal injury attorney.
Do I need a lawyer?
You should not attempt to navigate the complex world of insurance law and personal injury law without an attorney by your side. Many people try to handle their claims on their own but encounter red tape or make an error that costs them more money in the long run. A lawyer can help you maximize your compensation and make your claim go as smoothly as possible.
