Car accidents often cause serious injuries, which may have lasting effects on a person, sometimes for the rest of their lives. Some of these lasting injuries may require extensive medical care, as well as permanently impair the injured person’s ability to gainfully perform work. Many car accidents cause serious injury, including death. These injuries can include broken bones, bleeding, back injuries, herniated discs, spinal cord injuries/paralysis, burn injuries, and various brain injuries and brain trauma.
For those car accidents that are non-fatal, there are a variety of expenses that can be incurred. These include medical bills, ongoing medical care costs, lost wages, and other expenses that can be not only very high, but ongoing.
Of note, some car accident injuries may not be readily apparent at the time of the accident…i.e. the impact of the injuries may manifest a while after the car accident occurs.
Because the adverse effects of a car accident can potentially linger for years, it is important to know what legal remedies exist for an injured person. While some people believe that they can successfully handle injury legal remedy negotiations on their own, many others choose to engage a car accident lawyer to protect their legal rights and seek compensation. An experienced Chicago car accident attorney will have the knowledge and skills needed to deal with insurance companies, handle relevant paperwork, determine liability and either negotiate an attractive settlement or take the car accident injury case to trial.
