Legal Options for Schaumburg Personal Injury Victims

If you sustained an injury in an accident that someone else caused, you have options to recover compensation for your losses. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your case, you could file an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit against the liable party.

Some accidents are covered by insurance policies, such as motor vehicle collisions or injuries on another person’s property. During the insurance process, an adjuster will investigate the accident and determine who is responsible. The adjuster may determine that the policyholder is at fault and offer you a settlement. However, this settlement may be insufficient to meet your needs, and you may need to negotiate for a higher amount. In other cases, the adjuster may determine that you are at fault or that liability is too unclear to offer a settlement, and you will not receive any compensation.

If you receive a denial or insufficient settlement, you can pursue a personal injury lawsuit. You can typically recover a higher award through a lawsuit compared to an insurance claim. You will need to prove that the at-fault party breached a certain duty of care in order to secure this compensation, which will require significant investigation and evidence collection.

Your attorney can handle both of these processes on your behalf, crafting a compelling case for your right to compensation. Your lawyer will advocate aggressively for your best interests, collecting evidence, speaking to witnesses, and engaging in insurance negotiations to help you reach the outcome you deserve.
