Attorneys know that each and every year, thousands upon thousands of people are involved in accidents of one type or another, leaving them severely injured, dealing with the loss of work and uncaring insurance companies, wondering where to turn for the help they desperately need. Attorneys also know that most people are unfamiliar with the legal system and unprepared for the avalanche of paperwork they will be responsible for navigating, leaving them vulnerable and anxious. If you have been involved in an injury caused by the negligence of another, Attorney Larry Finn can help. We can answer all your questions, helping you choose the right option for your specific circumstances.
Leading a compromised life due to someone else’s negligence is not something your Illinois personal injury attorney will ever allow. Personal injuries can be caused by accidents at work— it is your employer’s responsibility to ensure your workplace is safe and you are protected from hazards. You could also be injured through an accident suffered while you were driving, during a slip and fall, while on a construction site, as the result of a dog bite, or as a result of medical malpractice.
As any of us who have ever been in an accident can attest to, feelings of frustration, confusion, vulnerability, and even anger at the situation you find yourself in are perfectly normal. Few of us are fully aware of the legal ins and outs of personal injury; all we know is that we are suddenly unable to work and provide for our family, left injured and hurting, and perhaps facing astronomical medical bills. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a trusted, knowledgeable person in your corner right now, who would fight tirelessly for your rights and a fair settlement, enabling you to get your life back on track?
Insurance companies do their best to convince accident victims to represent themselves and forego retaining an attorney, and here’s why—attorneys obtain significantly more money for their clients each and every time. Retaining an attorney, even for a relatively small claim, makes it much more likely you will receive a fair and timely settlement.
Consider this scenario: You have been injured in an accident, auto or otherwise, and it’s not your fault. You find yourself lying in an emergency room, in pain and waiting for a physician, contemplating possibly months or years of recovery, missed work, repeated physician’s visits, extreme medical bills, and the near-inevitable insurance nightmare. Your life has just turned from normal everyday living to complicated chaos. You are worried about how you will continue to provide for your family and pay your bills, and an unscrupulous insurance company is trying to take advantage of your vulnerability. The future can seem much more manageable when you have a personal injury attorney in your corner to fight for you and your future.
Many people ask friends, family members, or co-workers for a referral for a personal injury attorney. You might also look online and read reviews of several personal injury attorneys in your area. Once you have a list of a few attorneys, you can make appointments for a consultation with each of them. Most attorneys offer a free initial consultation. You can discuss the facts of your personal injury claim with each attorney, then determine which one you feel would offer the right representation for you.
You obviously want a person you feel comfortable with and one you can trust, but you also want the attorney who you feel will fight the hardest for your rights and your future. Generally, you will want to steer clear of a personal injury attorney that:
