WHAT SHOULD I Do If I've Been Injured?

Border logo

If you or a loved one has been injured, your priority should be to receive medical attention as soon as possible. It's essential not only for the health of you or your loved one --many injuries require immediate attention to prevent further damage but it's also important for the prospects of your legal case.

To win a case, you must prove that your injuries were caused by someone else's negligence. This might include bodily injury, pain and suffering, or the cost of treatment. However, it's difficult to prove damages without official records. Unless you see a medical professional soon after your injury, you might miss an important window in which you can obtain medical records proving that the negligence directly caused you harm. Keep in mind that the facts of some injuries might not manifest themselves for days, weeks or months after the incident, so you should see a doctor after your accident even if you don't notice anything wrong.

GET YOUR FREE CONSULTATION

ALSO AFTER THE INCIDENT, DO YOUR BEST TO ACCOMPLISH THE FOLLOWING:

  • File a police report if the incident required police involvement.
  • Take photos of the scene, the people involved in the accident, relevant license plates, and any other important factors in the incident
  • Get contact info for any witnesses, including names and phone numbers.
  • Exchange insurance information with other involved parties.

Although you exchange insurance information, do not speak to an insurance representative until you have meet with an attorney, who will likely handle that call. Otherwise, you could jeopardize your case.

Instead, as soon as possible, contact an attorney at Spiros Law, P.C. for an initial evaluation of your case. Having a trained professional by your side can help you efficiently and successfully navigate the legal system and collect evidence correctly to win your case.

The sooner you make contact with an attorney, the more likely you will be able to collect sufficient evidence.

WHY DO I NEED A Personal Injury Lawyer?

Border Logo

No one wants to pay out of pocket for an accident that was not their fault. You certainly shouldn’t have to pay for someone’s poor decisions, but that doesn’t mean that the defendant and the insurance companies won’t fight tooth and nail to pay you as little as possible. Unfortunately for you, the defendant’s side likely has a team of lawyers that are actively collecting evidence to counter your case. They’ll be well-versed in how to point out insufficient evidence, find loopholes in Illinois laws and statutes, or work with witnesses that might testify against you. Without professional help, you might not stand a chance against their expertise.

We don’t want you to fight this battle alone. You’ve been through enough with the emotional and mental repercussions of your injury. That’s why we offer the services of our tight-knit team of partners, associates, private investigators, legal nurse consultants, and our supporting staff to take care of you and your case in Kankakee. Our reputation of fighting for “the little guy” is built upon our combined decades of experience treating clients like part of our Spiros Law, P.C. family.
