Louise had just been involved in a multi-car pile up at the intersection of First Avenue at North Avenue. People were injured, property was damaged, and her car is probably totaled. As she talked with the police, then called her insurance company, she wondered about hiring an attorney. If you or a loved one have been involved in any incident that resulted in injury, you need to find out what a Chicago personal injury lawyer can do for you. We’ll look at a few reasons to hire an attorney in this article.
Represent Your Interests with the Insurance Company
Sure, you can face the insurers yourself, but why? Your personal injury attorney knows how insurers work and can stand up for you against them. Insurance companies are paid to represent the best interests of the insurance company, not you.
For example, a representative of an insurance company may want to interview you about the accident. Will you know what to say? Do you even have to talk with them? An experienced attorney will know the answer to these questions and many more.
Provide a Local Touch
By hiring an attorney from across town or out of state, you lose that important local touch. A Chicago personal injury attorney knows Chicago courts. In addition to how the court run, a Chicago attorney likely knows the judges, clerks, and staff. An attorney who is not located in Chicago may be at a real disadvantage when dealing with local officials.
Cut Down on Your Travel Time
Getting around in large cities is difficult, even one with a large public transportation system. You could drive an hour each way to meet with your attorney. But why?
When you hire an attorney with a nearby office, you’ll save the time, money, and frustration of a long drive.
